I do not intend to be competing with StyleForum, but thought that it was a better way to post up more static information that could be referenced back to (without having to use our favorite search feature).

 

For fun, I decided to call it, Alden of San Diego and it can be found at http://aldenofsandiego.com/ (assuming Alden is cool with that, otherwise I will change the URL). I hope that it is a good and useful reference for everyone here! I already posted it up in my signature and have decided to utilize this venue as a more readily accessible method for maintaining the FAQ. I have given a few members that I know and trust accounts to help me edit and maintain the information...

 

Also, I expect some of you may be interested, I posted a catalog of all of my shoes (with pictures, model numbers, etc.) I hope that this is a useful reference so that you can see what I have and what is in the realm of the possible and I posted up where I got mine from, so I hope that it should make connecting patterns to vendors a lot easier...

Anywho, I hope that you all enjoy. Thanks and have a good night!

Great initiative, Mike! Looking forward to following your blog. Great pictures also, as always.

Omg there goes my wallet. Western Ave by furniture row seems like a bit of an odd location, but hey. Would have assumed they'd be more centrally in the so-called retail core (Nordstrom flagship).

You shouldn't wear those lovely tankers to the table, you will certainly be distracted by them. Focus and win them back!!!!

I'd love to hear thoughts on which one you'd keep.

As far as what I currently have that's similar - I do currently have a pair of Leffot tobacco chamois longwings with commando sole. I also have a pair of unlined Dovers in snuff suede on flex sole.






What size are you? Digging the suede

Mike,

I am so happy for you my friend!

Excellent blog and collection.

Great resource, not only for Alden wearers, but for shoe collectors in general.

Thanks!
