post #33346 of 86587
I was just thinking about something similar. A year or two ago I organized a meetup at Alden DC. Only a few guys made it but it was a lot of fun and Kathy really enjoyed it, too. I followed up in discussions with Kathy about her hosting a more formal event but Alden corporate would not allow anything like that. I think it's a shame.

Anyway, would anyone be interested in an informal meetup at Alden DC sometime?

I'm game, assuming I can make the time.

The Mclaurens look similar to a pair of Mark Mcnairy longwing boots I had a year ago, which were quite badass but I didn't end up wearing them much...

This would be a good time had by all; however, about a month ago I inquired about a factory visit and was told by Alden (a rep. at the factory) that factory visits/tours are no longer allowed - due to liability reasons.

The Shoemart has it in 9D - or at least did the last I checked. I love the LHS in whiskey - wore them tonight sans socks.

A very nice shoe - and very formal (hard to get much more formal than a plaintoe bal in black). I used to own it, but ended up getting rid of it due to lack of use. I found myself instead opting for my black shell captoe bal for dressy/formal occasions and my black shell ptb for more casual occasions.

LS suggests this shoe can be worn casually. Personally, I totally disagree; I could not (and did not) ever wear this shoe casually.
