I still enjoy this one (on the right)...


Not the best quality pic to show its color...
700

thanks.
that's funny. I kind of prefer that orangish hue.

I'll have to get this pair out in the sun to see the real color though first.

But they are a bit dull and matte and not orange at all.

I think the last is Aberdeen but can't say for sure. I know there are some experts who can look at a shoe and immediately recognize the last. I wouldn't mind hearing from one such expert.
Excellent investment shawn. Love the laces. Wear them in the best of health.

Now that's what I'm talking about. Congratulations.

You folks have inspired me with your socks almost as much as you have with your shoes. A very nice combination you have here.

The unsualness factor recently increased when some guy began calling himself "grandpa" and calling Mac "Grandson" even though Mac plainly has not been a grandson for many a moon.  

Please explain.

From what I have concluded it's a show of respect to Uncle Mac who has brought us the two Mac methods and has the largest Alden collection that I know of.

On a separate note, do we all agree that this is not shell?
