Anyone have a good rec. for getting a couple pairs of Aldens topy'd around wall st? Not really an alden specific question but I figure y'all are pretty careful about who you let handle them...

Some call them gateway or starter selvedge but I always come back to APC New Standards. That said I don't own many pairs of the super high-end stuff.

Thank you.

I tried Need Supply for the snuff suede LHS right after I read your original post, but it seems as if they have only size 8 in stock (I'm 10.5D). I am the same size in Van, Aberdeen, Tremont, Barrie, and Marlow. I tried to size up for Plaza, but they were too big and not wide enough. If you hear of any other stockists for the Snuff, please let me know...

 

How on earth is this possible?  I wear a 8.5D Barrie, 9E Leydon and a 9.5D Aberdeen (Brannock is 9.5D Left/9.25D Right).  

 

Are my feet mutants? :O

Patrick, your shoes always have wonderful shines.

Congrats on the purchase and, of course, wear in great health!

Thanks for all the kind words and well wishes folks! With all the talk of limited availability of rare shell colors, I knew I had to jump on these. Looks like the rain has stopped and Friday is my conference call day so I will be brushing the crap out of these and hopefully snap a few more pictures.

Minas shoe repair on Wall, next to the BMW dealership, is a quality place. Minas has been in business for 30+ years, originally in the WTC. He does very good work.

As MH clarified, he is not among those who buys things because he sees celebrities wearing them.  Therefore, that last part of his post does not apply to MH, only those who do consciously try to emulate celebrities.

 

Where they disagree, is that MH thinks it is perfectly fine for people to buy things in an effort to emulate celebrities, while MWS thinks it is pitiful and juvenile.

 

MH or MWS, please correct me if I am misinterpreting your respective positions.

 

Thanks Bakes, you are correct.
