I have the same problem. Between Alden and Epaulet, I have no cash for anything else aside from cheaper items like boot laces. Haha. And I would like a few jackets, some new flannel shirts and trousers, etc. for this fall and winter. I even buy Alden from Epaulet, thus killing more clothing funds. I said to myself that this is going to stop for a while, yet I know I'm on the list for the ravello cap toe boots from Alden DC which should come this month. I don't want to pass on those, but I probably "need" to...
I believe we are the same size so if you decide that those Ravello cap toe boots aren't for you, let me know and I might be inclined to cover that expense for you.
My budding collection can't compete with mdubs' but just got these two in. I'm now equipped to face the tough SoCal winter.

These are great. Your photo makes them look much more enticing than the photo on the AoC site.
