LOL. I sure did, man. Shoes matter more than any other part of a man's wardrobe.

glad to have picked these up on ebay.......I love them but am not sure I would have pulled the trigger at full retail......I am amazed at the lack of consistency on sizing as these are much more snug than my snuff tassels in the same size

a couple of days, someone asked for a picture of these in the wild.......not the best photo but these are great

Hi, I am 10.5 C tts so the NST on the Aberdeen fits perfectly. I had a 10 D from Fransboone which I will now sell. I wear 10 C in Barrie.

Congrats! Was this from the May 15th preorder? I've got a 8.5D preordered from that run, but wasn't expecting them to drop until September/October/November.

Oh, ok thank you. Are those the NST shoes? I was referring to the boots. Color 8 and antique edge is a beautiful combo either way.

It took a couple of months to break them in, but these might be the most comfortable pair I have.....the range of color on the natty CXL is amazing!

Good work Fella's.  fing02%5B1%5D.gif

Convention dictates that someone say: "and he would've gotten away with it if it hadn't been for those meddling kids" about now. Consider it done!

I was almost fooled as well. Asked for proof but he was banned before pics got to me. The search goes on for a pair of Cigar LWB...

Listed L to R:

#8 Shell PAs, Brown calf Strand, Black Alden 909, Black calf PA


Depends on the job, usually going with a straight tip black calf is the safest option IMHO. Really love the 909 though =).

Love the patina on natty CXL, this photo makes me very excited about the recent Leffot preorder.

Just curious how large are the brick and mortars AoM, Wash DC, and SF Alden compared to one another.

I can only speak to Madison as that's where I got all of my Alden's so far. It's a fairly small place(can't imagine the rent on it lol) but there's enough room to feel comfortable to try shoes on.
