Man wish i could find a pair of Ravello NST's peepwall[1].gif

Today was moving day. I couldn't help but feel like a bank robber clearing out the vault when I was loading up the collection. The only difference being these bags have an Alden crest on them instead of a $ sign.

I get it, but yeah, that is not normal. Your Leffot Longwings are looking superb and I am glad to hear that you are enjoying them!

Don, these are soo nice. The Ravello NST has quickly become one of my favorite Alden makeups. You wear them so well.

I am certain my wife would prefer money bags over my Alden's. Hope that your move is going well!

Thanks guys! Black Shell makeups are frequently overlooked but are indeed absolutely beautiful and worthy of more attention than they get here. I think I recently said that I just picked up a slew of Black Shell models. They definitely help to complete my collection.

I also have the Swims mobster boot in a 1XL and can't get them on a 10D with commando soles.

I never understood the mentality of galoshes. Just wear boots and change into your shoes when you get to work. In fact, I keep all my shoes in my office. They never leave the sweet, warm embrace of our carpeted building.

Amazing ensemble! The shoes, the socks, the trousers, and of course, the rug! "Gold Jerry! Gold!"

Nope, not weird at all. I do it all the time (maybe not with governors, but definitely my senior execs). Now did you find yourself checking out the gov's shoes and judging? I do...

So here is a weekend's worth of clothes... 2 shirts, 2 pants, 2 pairs of socks, 2 pairs of boxers, 2 pairs Aldens ( I forgot to get belts for the picture but there is plenty of room for them along with Ipad, phone charger, I've even squeezed a bottle of single malt in there)

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

First thing I do is ditch one pair of shoe trees and stuff boxers/socks into the shoes; I swap trees during the weekend. Cloth bag the footwear and put them in as the first layer, they will go in an...ahem...69 orientation.

 

 

Next the toiletry bag and pants...

 

 

Followed by shirts...

 

 

Now thanks to you, I am packed for the weekend already. I thank you and my wife thanks you.

There is still plenty of room and I could likely stuff a third days clothing in there.

 

 

outstanding Ben. hope your're enjoying your trip.

I've been on a bit of a "shell kick" lately. I've tried to collect as much of the spectrum of shells that Horween offers as is feasible (and reasonable). I decided this afternoon to take out my shell shoes and boots and take a few photos. Perhaps this will help those of you who are interested in the various colors of shell, and to see the differences between them.

Second wear of these beauties I picked up from a forum member.
post #113472 of 122416

Haven't worn these in a while.

Going on almost a year and I think I have brushed them and reno'd them once in 10 months.  Kind of want to see what they will look like with minimal care.

 

Please excuse the non hemmed chinos.

The prettiest thing I've seen in a while! Make sure the movers don't pinch any of these!
