Most of us knew, man. Ben Silver, I believe.

It seems that I'm presented with yet another opportunity to feel inadequate when compared to other men. Whoever dies with the most Alden's wins. Just tell me where you live before checking out.

My current full Alden collection is 24 pair with one more on the way and 5 more on pre-order. I'm actually starting to keep track of how often I wear (and don't wear) the shoes and am planning to prune some out of the collection this year. It's just too many. I need to simplify.

MP: wow, that's an impressive number. Definitely don't have that many shoes from a single brand.

Quick ?: anyone know of a seller of a #8 PTB with natural edge?

Yeah, if I add my first and second most shoes from the same brand, I still don't get to 24.

Is there any brick and mortar store selling venetian shoe cream in LA or SF?

Cause I will be visiting the States shortly and would like to grab some of it back home.

i don't know about LA or SF but B. Nelson carries it. Have them ship it to your hotel or wherever your staying. i travel a lot and do this with many vendors. if you do it a week before your hotel stay and just let the hotel know they're usually pretty good about it.

Thanks for the seasoned advice to ward off premature, well, you know...Happens to a lot of guys, I'm told!!

 

I think you're right. It may be wise to wait. Given the infectious enthusiasm on this thread, I've ended up with 9 awesome acquisitions in the last two months. None of them have been regrettable thus far, but I've had far from enough time to truly enjoy each one and figure out the extent to which each pair goes with the different things in my closet. My burgeoning interests, understanding of shell, the different lasts and of the versatility of the various aldens leads me in this clearer moment to think that it's fine to sit tight for a bit. As much as I can imagine the ease with which one can rock natural cxl lwbs (see, eg, El Argentino), it occurs to me that it might feel better to diversify the collection gradually, expanding away from LWBs and boots and instead looking toward the unlined chukkas or maybe a suede loafer or shell bal. Of course, if the opportunity arises to get in on a color 8 Plaza lasted Indy, I won't even ask for your advice, I'm all in!

 

Hope you guys enjoyed the weekend. -d

Not trying to dissuade you from the Nat CXL LWB, it's a great makeup, just wanted to share an observation.

 

Also, there are plenty of other great shoe brands out there.  Don't be scared to branch out a little.  Aldens are great, but there are other great ones as well.  Don't limit yourself.  Nobody said that you must wear only Aldens (although there are some that seem to do so).

Thank you!

I will contact LS first, see if they still have them in stock.

If they don't, I will have them ship to the hotel, hopefully the hotel will entertain me facepalm.gif

They will. I don't see how this would be a problem; however, I would be surprised if LSBH is out of them.
