Well, as we rapidly approach deadhorse-a.gif I suppose it's an agree to disagree situation.  Suffice it to say that I'm not saying that someone cannot like something for whatever reason they choose.  I am saying that I can't relate to the mentality that leads someone to make decisions based on that, and I think it's a bit pitiful and juvenile.  To each his own.

So . . . to paraphrase, To each his own, but in my opinion, you're pitiful and juvenile??? I don't think there is a need to insult the people who don't share you're opinion.

Thats not what he is saying, based on my interpretation.

 

As MH clarified, he is not among those who buys things because he sees celebrities wearing them.  Therefore, that last part of his post does not apply to MH, only those who do consciously try to emulate celebrities.

 

Where they disagree, is that MH thinks it is perfectly fine for people to buy things in an effort to emulate celebrities, while MWS thinks it is pitiful and juvenile.

 

MH or MWS, please correct me if I am misinterpreting your respective positions.

I gotta say, this is totally weird. It was just last year when I was looking thru the Brooks Brothers catalog and saw their unlined shell cordovan penny loafers for the jaw dropping price of $650. If you search the web for info and pics of shell cordovan penny loafers you'll invariably come across a photo of Uncle Mac wearing a variety of Alden LHS's with his trademark argyles OTC. Which links you to SF. Which leads to a very needy monkey who likes expensive shoes sitting on your head. Does Uncle Mac control the Internet?

To docalden2013:

Thank you.

I tried Need Supply for the snuff suede LHS right after I read your original post, but it seems as if they have only size 8 in stock (I'm 10.5D). I am the same size in Van, Aberdeen, Tremont, Barrie, and Marlow. I tried to size up for Plaza, but they were too big and not wide enough. If you hear of any other stockists for the Snuff, please let me know...

Thank you. They look pretty good at BB. In your experience, is the unlined flexwelt more comfortable than the lined suede at BB?
