I was kind of hoping that I would not like them when they got here because I have my eye on something else and don't want to keep both because I feel like I'm out of control, but unfortunately I think I like them.  Not sure they'll get much wear.









Notice that they DO in fact have the foxing on the heel, unlike the Alden stock model 666.

Please, someone convince me not to like them.

i'll be the naysayer and say return them. you said yourself you have an eye on something else and you don't think you'll wear them much.

I like shots at this angle. Shows the shoes in a way we don't normally see them. And these are beautiful, of course.

New RL Marlow Wingtip Yes I know this is tantamount to sacrilege on this thread, but I think they'll be a great compliment to my growing family of shell cordovan shoes. With Snapseed you can really see the different shades in the shell. My #8 PTB 990's are almost officially up for sale. Can't keep everything, or can you?

Awesome! What sizing did you end up going with? Same as Barrie?

Why yes, I did go with my Barrie last size of 11D. Very comfortable within minutes of putting them on.

Just picked up a pair of Alden New England calf  split toe oxfords on Ebay, pictures when they arrive. Think I've developed a serious shoe problem since I started browsing in here. Have purchased from Ebay lately: the Aldens, a pair of AE Cameron penny Lloafers, and a pair of Redwing cigar Beckmans. It all started with me buying a pair of Wolverine 1000s three weeks ago.

 

HELP, think I'm sick!

Here is an interesting discussion you might want to read, which suggests everything from 'walk it off' to an issue with fitment or construction.

Ah, that's my post from 2 years ago. As I mentioned in a later post in the thread, I had the wrong size. Going from 11 E to 11.5 D fixed it.

Thanks to fellow sf'er PhiPsi32, I am the happy new owner of a brand new pair of LS CXL Jumpers. They have just a day's wear on them so far and I am loving them.

Very nice, both Patrick and David... icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Btw, just listed some cigar chukkas (see sig). Want to move them fairly quickly so all offers will be entertained

[edit] oh, they're in stock but shipping is 8.95, scratch that...

Don't do that! Go to a J&M store, or call one up - tell them to place an order for you and just ask them for free shipping. I went to my local one (Prudential) and they had a pretty weak selection of colors. I took the ones they had and had them UPS the rest of them to me. Got all 7 colors for $15 - free shipping... smile.gif
