Thanks for wearing those, mike! I know that you prefer the creaseless look, but I'm into the chukka rolls. Looking forward to seeing the other colors.

Nice, I guess they had to wait for some people to pass? Typically they do two in the common sizes.

I also have a special delivery coming today from the west coast! Can't wait. Wish I had sent them to the office. Between Aldens, Epaulets, and car parts this week I'm having a hard time keeping track.

Yesterday... Alden x Brooks Bro Black Shell Wingtips on the M-75 Last.



 




Today. Alden Color 8 Chukka Boot (from Alden DC)... These were my second Aldens and the creased toe on the left boot is why I no longer use my foot parking brake if I don't absolutely have to anymore...

Just further fuels my anxiety about moving to a 5spd soon. Guess some drivers will be in my future.

The family has grown quickly since Dec. thats for sure. 4 currently, two due this week. Combined with the current wait lists I'm done for the year other than 2nds or deep discounts (damn impulses) really need some suede. I'e got a focus on what I want and not just going for quantity. Ended up canceling my Jcrew shell Indy even though it was a good deal because of that.

I felt pretty strongly on my commitment to no more AE's, but an MTO got classified as a 2nd for minor problems so I might end up with that one. I almost talked myself out of it though. And I have a 20% off standing offer so I might get one more AE shell at some point in the future. The Alden difference is quite large though.

Whiskey Wednesday, the beautiful rolls really coming on this pair and I love it. I can't get enough of PTB, will probably end up being the first model that I will end up with the full shell rainbow. Dovers are already on preorder and likely Cigar after that.

Anyone seen shipping confirmations for the JCrew orders earlier this week? My email receipt explicitly says 'style not eligible for promotion', even though it did apply it to the order. Pending charge on the credit card. I wonder if they will cancel it...

I got notice mine shipped and have a tracking # too.  I got the black shell Cadet.

Update-Mine too said style not eligible for discount but it applied it anyway.  Maybe a coupon glitch but it appears to have been honored.
