Many thread members (including myself) are in this age range. I notice more Alden shoes among younger professionals every year. Over the past few months, I have been asked if I am wearing "JCrew Aldens", observed bankers swap their Ferragamo/Gucci loafers for Alden full straps, seen youngish guys trying on Aldens with their girlfriends at Leffot/AldenNYC, etc. GQ et all have been pushing the brand for years.
