What happens when you haven't had a day off from work for 2 weeks and getting little to no sleep? You wake up on Friday morning with a shipping notice from Frans Boone. Will post back upon delivery. Looking forward to my first Aldens!

Alpina, your Wingtips are looking very nice. Mack did a good job for you.Quote:Originally Posted by Shawnc
Didn't think I would like brass on 8. Man was I wrong. Those look slick.
Yesterday was my maiden voyage of some black shell I picked up over the summer from a fellow SF'er. Today, Leffot Dovers. Quickly becoming my favorite casual shoe.

Channeling my inner chipshot with light denim on 8
Both of your Color 8 offerings are looking very nice. I prefer darker denim with Color 8 myself.Quote:Originally Posted by TheSizzle

Your boots are looking very nice for plain toe boots.

I know this all too well.....I woke up to the order confirmation on my 1st Vibergs this morning!post #119979 of 12241611/20/15 at 7:47am
Thanks Mike! Been checking out this thread for a while and am continually impressed with your collection. And thanks for your site, lots of useful info there, I'm sure I'll be checking back.
Ha! Did you pick up one of the new BCC makeups?
I remember thinking at 2AM as I was putting in my order when I got home from work that I should check out the time difference. Turns out its 6 hrs so they were likely just about to roll in to work and see my order!post #119980 of 12241611/20/15 at 8:03ampost #119981 of 12241611/20/15 at 8:50ampost #119982 of 12241611/20/15 at 8:52ampost #119983 of 12241611/20/15 at 9:01ampost #119984 of 12241611/20/15 at 9:32amQuote:Originally Posted by joxr
Just received my alden roy boots and I'm not sure if this is acceptable .. or is it?

The split at the welt is pretty much standard issue. Not sure what's going on at the toe, though. If these were firsts I'd bring it up to the retailer.post #119985 of 12241611/20/15 at 9:44am
