Nobody on SF has seen or heard from Tifosi for over 2 minutes now. Therefore he must be Tifosi...


@tifosi has multiple personalities.  @rydenfan is his evil alterego.  There may be more out there but I have yet to expose them.  :rotflmao:

Congrats! They already look unreturnable (strict no creases rule) but that's a good thing because they look amazing!

Very cool looking snuff PTBs Uncle.  They make for an excellent break from shell cordovan.

Interesting, I've always wondered why they were called driving mocs.   Not a big fan of their look.

Suede brush does wonders.  A suede eraser or old school suede powder also works well with undesirable scuffs and marks from the clutch of my 6 speed manual.  I have no problems driving with my suede footwear.

The Shoe Mart?

Thank you sir! Yes shoe mart. My first pair of aldens I should add


That's a fine first pair my friend.  Welcome to the club.  Just out of curiosity, how did you size them, tts?  Also, if you have the time, would you mind a couple of more pics from different angles.  I have been on the fence with this boot for a while.  Not sure whether to go with the boot or the shoe (2210).  Enjoy often and in great health! :slayer:

Alden plaintoe indy in natural chromexcel came today, the barrie last looks really round compared to trubalance..
overall quite a comfortable and nice fit, i went with the same size as mine trubalance.

The unused plain toe does look quite round, but should look awesome with a little bit of wear.  Great boot, enjoy!

Seconded. Was going to post this. First pair of Alden's? Most stores wont take returns with creasing or with scuffs on soles. Best to not walk around in them when trying on. Only places like Jcrew or Brooks Brothers will take them back with wear.
