^ I was on a spree for a while and picked up too much too fast. I have the best of intentions! I'm like a Python who swallowed an extremely large porcupine. I need some time to digest.

this is a beaut. tried it on recently.

The snowflake is my ultimate grail Seiko. I'll rock lesser models for now though such as the SBDC007 "Shogun" I have on now.

On another note regarding unworn pairs in the closet, all my shoes and boots get worn hard!

You guys are crazy with your unworn shoes!

I have just one pair that I haven't put on yet: whiskey wingtip boots from 14oz. Haven't worn them because I had the LS Snuff WT boots and the #8 Naval boots arrive recently and there have only been so many boot days this summer...

the heat has affected my boot weather (plus the fact the cigar barrie boots just arrived a week ago)

 

florida vacation didnt help. I lived in my NEOC boats the entire time.

 

the LWBs.. yeah, I got nothing for that lol

I have about 10 pairs of alden/ae/viberg/vass that have not been worn out of the house yet...nothing rare or exotic just stuff that was gotten in the offsason for them or need to be sold based on redundancy.

Plus I wear shorts 4 months out of the year so my boot and shoe rotation is stunted..

makes me feel better. I have 2xVibergs and 2xAlden and I think a pair of rancourts that are unworn. I'm also in shorts half the year and find it hard with the hectic kid, work, play schedule to fit in the collection especially boots but I keep buying them!

all this talk of worn/unworn has made me wonder, has there been a collection thread on here in awhile? Cant recall the last one I've seen..

 

We just had one over on GYW. Love it as it opens me up to new models etc that I'd possibly never have seen..

 

Is there a link on SF for a collection thread (presumably link to a folder/imgur)?

My unworn list:

DC Ravello CT Boot

Ravello LWB (dark edge)

Is that where someone posts all of their shoes?

I have thought of getting all of my shoes photographed but it would have to be it is quite the process. Perhaps when I move!

The only shells I haven't worn are my #2 LWB's.... just haven't gotten the nerve to wear them out yet. All my other shell I wear.

Good god. How many YEARS has it been since LS offered that? I hope those weren't new to you!

I picked them up last year new (but on the secondary market). They were made in 2012.

Good afternoon.  I am a long time reader, first time poster.  I am continually amazed by the assistance (and wit!) offered to new members of this forum.  I have some posts I would like to make and intend on doing so at my earliest convenience - inclusive of pictures smile.gif , but first I ask permission to impose upon you a question.  I am trying to decide on a cordovan #8 short wing blucher and both Alden of Carmel and Leathersoul has one with AoC being on commando with dark edging and LS on I think double leather with antique edging.  Props to Adam at AoC who has been unbelievably responsive.  No doubt Will at LS will be as well given the time difference, he certainly has been great in the past!  My intended purpose for the shoe is to be paired with trousers and an odd jacket in a work environment inclusive of business casual as well as traditional business dress.  Do the folks on this forum generally believe that the commando sole is appropriate for this type of use?  Additional information which may be useful is that I live in Florida and so the shoes will see a bit of rain, travel to main cities such as NY, Boston, Atlanta, DC, etc… and am in the banking profession, commercial currently not IB.

I appreciate the time you take to respond a new Alden fan!  BTW, DANG what an expensive, but great hobby!  

I have the #8 longwing from AoC with the dark edging and commando sole and I wear them quite a bit. Even wore them with a suit a few weeks ago. For versatility and occasional traditional business dress I would go with the AoC model with the dark edge. Either way, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
