^ a new pair of course. Yeah it may hurt but you'd break em in quick and at the end of the night, you still have a new pair of Aldens.

LHS penny's. Michael Jackson style. The single leather sole is light and they're the closest thing to slippers in my shell collection.

Then this shows up a few days ago... kinda cool if we had a hand in the design of this boots.


i'm not gonna lie, these look like old man orthopedic shoes but i kinda want a pair. however, as i am planning for a wedding, the alden budget has reduced to $0.00

Looking to finally pick up a pair of tan LWB (wish I could find a cordovan whiskey), but noticed a few sites list the color differently ie - Jcrew shows tobacco, unionmade shows walnut calf, shoemart shows new dark tan. They all look similar in color to my amateur eyes. Can anyone help tell the difference, if there is any? Would hate to make an expensive mistake.

Some of that is built into a shoe and correctly so... I won't pretend to know the full reasoning for it but I'm sure google is your friend in this case. Any well built shoe will not sit flat until your weight is on/in it. I do know I read this somewhere but can't remember where right now

Does anyone know what size I would be in the Aberdeen last, if I measure a 41 on the Vass F last?

 

TIA!

Don't know the Vass Lasts, but Aberdeen is TTS for me.  12D on the brannock, 12D on the Aberdeen, (11.5D in the Barrie and Trubalance).

I really like the shade of navy Alden uses... I'm still looking for a good opportunity to break out the navy suede chukkas for the first time in 2013
