Haha oh gosh, shining the pole with Lexol must be good, right? Smooth and conditioned...

Well this thread took an interesting turn...haha.

I tried the Mac method tonight. I didn't quite get Mac results. Maybe a bit more practice...

Did you buff with a soft cloth at the end?  I noticed that if you skip that step you won't get that high gloss shine that Mac achieves.

 

 

And I apologize for my ungentlemanly conduct before.shog[1].gif

The Alden SF salespeople recommend Lexol NF as a conditioner for Alden shoes made with Horween Chromexcel uppers.

Congratulations on a long and hard earned accomplishment... IMO... A balmoral, the LSW attorney shoe is awesome... Or a more less liked shoe... A plain toe balmoral... Good luck on embarking in what I hope proves to be stellar career!

JermynStreet, first let me say congratulations on passing the bar. Now to the important matter of appropriate footwear for legal representation. In consultation with a close personal advisor, ie. my girlfriend, we've decided that the best choice would be the Alden Plain Toe Bal. Style #932 in black calfskin on the Aberdeen last with a single oak sole. We like the clean and classy lines. The calfskin will allow you to go and get a good shoeshine. You can sit in a high chair and look lawyerly. Or, stay up late and apply one if your nervous before court. The single oak sole will allow you to dance around the most delicate of legal arguments. "Actus Regis Nemini Est Damnosa" -The law will not work a wrong.

After all those years... Go shell!! I have these in No8 and black and they are my power shoes with any suit... They just make the right statement... Well done BeSpiffington!

Gilt says Italy but they said that for a peal shoe too

Has to be, BC the main diff between the Alden tassel and Alden for bb tassel is the spiffy stitching on the heel, which the gilt model indeed has. odd mess up on their end.

@ JermynStreet - Well done (and good luck trying to decide which shoes to buy).

Great news my friend!  I think I personally prefer this shoe to the LS attorney's shoe.  While I do like the plaza last better than the hampton, I am a much bigger fan of the traditional oak leather sole over the oiled flex single leather soles.

 

Another option might be the color 8 tassel moc.  That may be the standard men's shoe at my wife's firm.  I think Mediahound is correct though, if you'll be a transactional attorney, color 8 tassel mocs, LWBs, BB PTBs, etc... can all work.  If you'll be a litigator, the perf cap toe oxford in black may be your best bet.  What the hell, get all of them! nod[1].gif

 

Congrats!
