Nice collection. I especially like the suede ptb, whiskey ptb and the cigar longwing.

Ok, I surrender! I have been resisting buying shell for a while now. I even have bad mouthed it a bit. So this AM I’m down at Shoe Mart looking to buy a shoe made of CXL. But they had this pair if irregular PTB in color #8 for $399 (besides one small scratch on the heel Chester and I could find nothing wrong). This was less than I planned on spending for the CXLs. I made the mistake of trying them on - I don’t know why I just fell in love with them. They really are a stunning shoe in person. I REPENT!

Anybody think I can pull 10.5D Hampton if I'm a 10.5D Barrie in this instance?

Don't mean to be a pain in the arse but I'd really like some insight from you guys on this...

Mac method & you'll be good to go. Betting that this will not be your last Alden shell purchase especially with TSM just down the road from you.

How times have changed. My father, his friends, and my uncles (all WW2 vets). Would never even consider wearing loafers - "slip ons" were for women!
