Who's gonna be the first to break the 8 Handle? We should get a pool going here.

I think after my pre-orders this year come through I have to get out of the game as well. Unless I can sell a pair, no new pairs. My COLAs at work surely aren't keeping up with it...

The LWBs are worth waiting for I think.

Alden x Leffot Atom Blucher in Cigar
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



I want to like these, and I appreciate the fact that they aren't on the barrie, but I think I prefer a traditional shortwing blucher or longwing.

I'd go LWB too. I have the RL Marlow which I think are much better short wing variations. And ALWAYS goes on sale!

It's been a very expensive month after having been caught up in the wonderful pictures you guys have been sharing and in the exuberance we all have for these awesome shoes. I imagine my Alden collection hardly begins to approximate the depth and breadth of what you long-time aficionados have going on in the shoe closet, but I've already found in this short span of time that I have yet to wear through a complete batting rotation. Moreover, the Alden virus has not only decimated my former AE fever, but makes me feel guilty about skipping the red AE shoe bags every morning. How many of you guys actually wear shoes from other brands (and, no, the sneakers you wear to the gym don't count!)

 

Just curious, how do you guys decide which Aldens (or other shoe brands, for that matter) to wear? I feel like it's time to start adhering to going through the batting rotation just to make it worth the money spent.

 

That said, every time you guys talk about another fascinating makeup, I can't help but say to myself, "I could definitely make good use out of that. My kid doesn't really need a college fund, does he?"

 

Of course, this might just be my own idiosyncratic neurosis; but, I'd be relieved if I'm not the only one afflicted. shog%5B1%5D.gif

 

I've got 7 Pairs of Aldens, all shell.

 

LHS - Black, 8, Cigar

Tassel - 8, Cigar

PCT - Black 8

 

Today I wore my Espresso Shell Rancourt Blake Boots

 

Bean Boots when its real ugly or walking the dogs off-road

 

got black and brown Gucci Horse-bit loafers

 

Brown Suede Tod's driving mocs

 

another pair of brown calf hand-sewn penny loafers (Peal & Co from BB)

 

will probably buy a pair of Rancourt CXL Boat-like shoes (custom hybrid design I have been cooking up)

 

New balances when I dress it down.

 

 

...already an excessive collection by any other standard than ours.

Man, all I am looking for now:

-Whiskey boots, prefer NST (Barrie from Leffot) but will take anything, maybe Indy from Alden NY
-Cigar boots, prefer NST (Barrie from LS) but will probably settle for an Indy or straight tip
-#8 wingtip boots (Barrie) with natural edge. I know LS had these and Union did something like this
-#8 PTB with natural edge... anyone know to find these?

This would settle my 1 pair of boots & 1 pair of shoes per color

that all you are looking for?

I haven't. Link?
