Thanks. Now if only the overseas prices weren't so nauseating...

Shoes & shirts would be like $586 after VAT deduction if they accepted overseas orders. May get a friend to buy who will be in Holland soon

Nice collection!!

Nice to see a few captoe bluchers.

The scotch grain vintage Florsheim is a beauty. It looks almost exactly like the vintage Hanover I have in scotch grain. It was passed down from my father - originally purchased in 1970.

Wore mine nearly all day Saturday. Wonderful fit; no break-in discomfort. The NST in a boot model is wonderful.

Gentlemen,

 

just a couple of weeks ago I bought my first pair of Aldens (a pair of J. Crew Alden 405s) after contemplating the investment for over two years. Well, not having had the opportunity to get back to NYC to buy them was one of the reasons wink.gif. Now, a couple of weeks later, I am absolutely happy that I bought them and Alden shoes are starting to become a sort of 'little vice' for me; I already preordered another pair of the Indy Boots, have a business trip to NYC beginning of December where I plan on buying at least one more pair, and just received a nice package via UPS an hour ago which I think you might be interested in smile.gif.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think it's about time that I stop wearing sneakers as casual shoes and switch to something more 'adult' wink.gif.

 

And finally...

 

 

 

You bet it does! biggrin.gif.

 

Cheers,

DBate

Slipping on my #4 WT Boots this morning, I thought “what a shame the #4 cap toe was cancelled”. Man, that really would have been sweet.

I realized I always seem to be wearing the same socks when I decide to post.

Have a great week friends.
