True indeed. The disclosure brought us closer together. I also decided that my son deserved a more mature model for how a man handles himself.

Considering suicide would mean having to worry about the collection ending up in some random Goodwill. I guess I could bequeath the collection to some of our fellow 8.5D Barrie / 9D TTS addicts.

Told her about the mahogany roadmaster and accompanying quilted vest too. Now she's on the hunt for a nice jacket herself smile.gif
Thanks for sharing your knowledge, 7ftg!

Thanks, zippyh! Time to save the money for the EGs. Maybe I should liquidate my AEs to pay for one double monk.
I think sometimes our perceived gluttonous behavior gets the best of our anxieties. Happy it worked out well.

FYI I wear 6.5D Barrie and 6.5/7E in all of EG's lasts. I would recommend the Dover for the first dive though over the Westminster. I endorse EGs during the week and Aldens the other times happy.gif

If I could own but one Alden shell PTB, it would be the BB version in color 8 (and I do own it). However, I also own other Alden shell PTBs, including the 990.

That's a great question. Burgundy is one color I have not purchased yet. I have the dark brown, light brown and black, and I would say that none of them are a perfect match for the shell laces. Dark brown would be the closest, though. See them draped over the shoe (in natural light) to compare against the original laces. You will also notice that they're not as heavily waxed as the Alden laces.



I actually purchased these laces for my Chromexcel Indies, which they look beautiful on. The dark brown is more of a true match for the shoe, whereas the light brown gives it a nice contrast that matches with the color of the welt. I thought the black would look pretty cool, but it's just a tad too severe in my opinion. One of the main advantages of these laces is how easily I can order them from Amazon smile.gif

^^ That dark brown does not look too bad. A note on the 'waxiness' of Alden's laces...the laces on my shell captoe boots are far waxier than the laces on my shell Indys. My shell Indy laces don't feel waxy at all. Maybe because of the more casual nature of the Indys??

Do you really want either? Wait and get what you want. $700 is still $700

Of those choices. #8 PTB all day. I was going to get that PTB on crepe, but they sold out of my size.

I know ,thing is that I have a credit with them and there's nothing else that gets my attention and the only pre order I might be interested in is sold out in my size , and also I'm not a big fan of pre orders.

Thanks.

I, personally think the PTB on crepe is quite versatile. I would gladly have that as my only PTB if they had my size.
