welp

 

get your models you want now before prices continue to skyrocket

It's probably forced patina anyway. You never brush, condition or polish it do you?

I do use it for work as well, but I guess having things like a fingerprint scanner are not really essentials but Ill be darned if it isn't AWESOME!
I agree! I'm dying with my 2 year old iPhone5!

Sigh, keeps getting more and more insane to get these shoes.  While I wanted to add to the Alden collection,I got tired of waiting and am placing an order for Tricker's shell MTO.

Let's just say the creasing isn't from how my foot bends.

IMHO I think some of this splotch ing is not avoidable. While I wish it was not there....I have come to accept it going to be there on almost any darker color such as cigar and #8. I've attached a photo of my NIB cigar LWB I just got.

See Ya,
Steve

Finger print scanner is awesome until someone wants your phone and takes your finger with it to use the phone!  :)

I guess I mean it in both ways.  They may be inter-related to a degree.  A large overlap between what is "cool" and what is "fashionable".

Maybe you are a hipster since you don't want to believe that Aldens have become "cool"?

For those of you that missed out on the Leffot LWB craze today...I emailed them and asked for a larger size which was not on the pre-sale, they confirmed it, and I paid immediately as required.  This might work for any size?  Anyway I'm on the Leffot train to empty wallet!  This will be my 1st pair from Leffot...I'm excited!  This means I have cigar, whiskey, black and #8 in LWB.  All I need for my Mikefecta (term used for those who can acquire all colors in less than 2 years) is Ravello.  Bonus round includes #2, but I would be happy to hit the normal mikefecta.

 

See Ya,

Steve
