I purchased a pair of Peal and Co (C&J) shoes from BB recently. They were obviously unworn, and the first time I put the shoes on the damn lace snapped! It's sitting on my desk looking at my right now.

All my Alden laces are still going strong. I think it's just the luck of the draw.

recently put a hole through a wax lace, got it caught on a speed hook... lace is still holding strong, but will need to be replaced down the road

Write a nice e-mail to them and they'll likely send some replacement laces.

Black Brooks Brothers Black Fleece long wings.
Grant last or so I've been lead to believe. I sized down 1/2.

Nice longwings Zip. Really like that pebble grain.

those are nice, I sold my pair of black shell longwings after I got the same pebbled ones. It makes the black shoe more interesting overall

Had thought about selling my cigar shell Indys, and even added them to BS, but after some thought, I think they are gonna work out just fine.

dang john going back and forth, but looks like you made a solid decision... for now... we're in the midst of winter here, and it seems like boots are hot on everyone's mind, but i was wondering if anyone had a favorite spring/summer aldens that they're itching to wear? i'm looking ahead (and budgeting) and i'm looking for ideas

Ya, for now, haha. But, really, I think they are here to stay. My fiancé, who is very conservative with spending, was actually the one telling me to think about keeping them. It was a pretty expensive Christmas this year on gifts for others, so I think some guilt on my side was a factor as well in wanting to sell them. Not to mention that I bought the boots you sold me, another pair of Alden #8 boots, and the cigar Indys all in the last month and a half.

I am interested in seeing what LS comes out with this spring, as I have heard they have some good stuff. I think some snuff suede chukka boots or chromxcel chukka boots would be great for spring.

Thanks guys. The more I look at them, the more I'm liking the pebble grain. I was considering some longwings in black shell but I'm glad I waited and went this route.

I've got an almost new pair of 9 B/D Whiskey Long Wings that are pretty cool - and they just might be available for sale.

Those are great...but, what do people think of the loops? I don't mind the locker loops on my Black Fleece pants, but not sure about the look (use?) on shoes.

Zippy-why did you size down on Grant last? Don' they fit true to size?
