I don't get why people are so attached to him.

 

Personally, I don't get much from his posts as all he posts are just things like "Wear in good health", "Enjoy" and calling people "Nephew". 

 

Nothing against him or anything, he's cool and all,  but there is actually very little content to his posts.

call the shoe mart tomorrow, they'll get you an updated inventory over the phone concerning Indys

 

edit: if they have indys in your size, anticipate them being $299 (going off a sz12 list with indys that i got this morning)

That size 12 price is a special price. I wouldn't anticipate paying anything less than full retail for any Indy boot if I were you. Unless you get lucky or your able to find something on eBay.

the poster I was quoting referenced the list from shoe mart, hence me including the price from the list I got this morning

Either you get it, or you don't.

The schtick does get a little old but he has some nice socks. My first thought was: "how is this f'n guy related to so many people?!"
post #35589 of 87863

You can't help but respect him simply for the fact that he has so many Aldens.  Also, his shine is pretty much unmattched.

 

But I see what you are saying, it's not like I can't get through the day without him.  However, I did notice almost right away when he became absent.

It's because he has forgotten more about shell cordovan than most of us will ever learn.

It's because he loves shoes, perhaps more than any of the rest of us.

It's because he is to our little sartorial sub-interest what Arthur Sackler was to the world of Chinese antiquities.

His presence enriches our community. His absence diminishes it.

That is why everyone is so attached to him.

Trust me, this is a battle you can't win

Mac has been helpful to me over PM, posts great photos of cordovan models, etc. Honestly, his cordovan shoe photos on this forum and others have probably helped a lot of people catch the Alden bug over the past few years - I am one of them. He's pretty influential
post #35592 of 87863
mac and i have pretty different taste in shoes (aside from the fact that we both wear aldens) but you gotta respect the fact that his mac method has become the de facto SOP for shell care.

plus i like the fact that he always lets us know that yes, his socks do indeed go over the calf.

Uncle Mac is a true gentleman in every sense of the word, and then some. We are privileged to have him here with us.

Hello fellow Aldenians! This is my first post on SF so I figure I'll share some camera phone pics of my first pair of Alden's #8 LWB 8D with the antique edging.  Sorry the picture quality is not great, and they are do for a good shine as I have only wore them a couple of times (still breaking them in). I picked them up online from The Bureau at Belfast - Merchants & Missionaries. http://www.thebureaubelfast.com/shop/brand/58/alden/  for approximately $850 after shipping and currency conversion ( I know it's a little pricey but I really wanted the antique edge trim from Alden. There are still a couple of sizes left too! I'm already shopping for my 2nd pair of Aldens, I'm hooked!! Looking at #8 or cigar cap toe boots, jumpers, or tankers (if I'm lucky enough!).

well, first that's not really correct. Mcarthur has responded to questions with insight and experience both on the forum and by PM.
also, mac-method.
totally nice guy.
and he does what this thread does best, which is show pictures of awesome alden shoes...
