Uncle, despite not being Aldens, very very nice.

I might need your advice on socks, all of my argyles are mid calf, and end up crunched up around my ankles before lunch...I have been converted to OTC, but need to find good Argyles that are also OTC.
Great score! I am on the lookout for Cigar PTB, so I'm a little jealous.


Finally a break in the rain, so snuff suede today:

Both models are very nice (I own both), but I see them as completely different in that one is brown, one is burgundy, one is a blucher and one is a balmoral. As between the two, the marlow is more versatile, IMO.

that's my pic. btw, it may be a good comparison between the 975 and the marlow, each shoe is the same size, 8.5D.

Quite nice. I believe Cathy at Alden DC has some of these in stock currently (or at least she did a couple of weeks ago).

Quick care question. I use Venetian Shoe Cream on my cordovan shoes. Today I had a hard time finding it so was persuaded by my shoe guy to by Meltonian Leather Balm instead. Wanted some options on one versus the other before I used it. Any thoughts?

No, my Marlows are 8.5d but my barrie lwbs are now 8D, which fit me much better.
