I have a new watch coming in this week as well. Pretty excited to see how it looks and performs in person. Watches and shoes are my 2 weaknesses.

Join the club.

 

In his Reddit AMA, Paul Grangaard (AE's CEO) claimed that the two sartorial things that women most notice about men are their shoes and their watches.  I'm well on my way with respect to the former and it's only a matter of time before I start to get serious about the latter . . . . :embar:

I sold the cigar longwings when I got in the Leffot color 8 longwings with antique soles because I thought the two overlapped too much. They did, but the cigar longwings were the better shoes. Alden NYC gave me an opportunity to correct my mistake.

The Alden x Blackbird saddles are outstanding - how/where did you score those?

eBay. @REguy posted them on the thread last weekend.

Blackbird had those on their site for the longest time. I waffled on them for months, but in the end I thought they'd fill a hole and wound up buying the pair of 10s.

Mike, I'm surprised that pair of 9.5s that popped up on the Bay fits you. I thought you were a 10.

I go 9.5 on plain toe designs. My tts is 10.25C. :-) so I can pull off the 9.5.

Saddles are becoming one of my favorite styles of Alden shoes...
post #78671 of 122416
I do the same thing with unlined PTBs and CXL balmorals. Gotta love the quirks of Alden sizing.
post #78672 of 122416
Anyone interested in trading? I'm looking for something in Barrie 10E (I think) for a pair of my Barrie 10D shoes. I'm still feeling my way through the sizing process.

The color scheme is so badass, I'm surprised I totally missed REGuy's post.

 

Does anyone here have the 9942?

 

http://www.theshoemart.com/cgi-bin/category.cgi?&vendor=ALD&category=MXS&browse_vendor=1&item=ALD_m_SADDLE_OXFORD_CALFSKIN&ps=&start=87&rpro=9942&searchfields=&query=

 

Seems like it may be too stark a contrast for my taste.  I like the Blackbird b/c it has just a tad of contrast, enough to notice, but not so much that it stands out.

 

The monochrome 994 may be the way to go in this case...

^ Nice shot Namor. Almost 80 here today. Sad part about spring cleaning...bagging and retiring boots to a top shelf in the closet.
