Nice line-up!  Sure has grown quickly!  It is funny how the Marlows are the only non-Alden shoes that are accepted in this thread.

 

I also like your Calf/Shell comparison shots.  Do you wear the calf much?  I haven't bought anything in calf since I became interested in shell.

Thanks for sharing!  Post pics of your Cigar Cap Toe's upon arrival (they aren't terribly common on this thread, not sure i've ever seen ITW pics of the TSM's w. antique trim) and wear in good health!

The pic of your pristine Cigar PTBs is very appealing to my eye.  Maybe one day...

 

We will overlook the fact that you included previously posted pics, and shots of shoes that you no longer own, but only this once can we excuse that.wink.gif

Thanks for sharing.

 

Is that a Kirkwood?

 

How about the red WTB with brass eyelets?  Oxblood Brixton?

 

Is that a CXL WTB on Plaza?

 

Fingers crossed that they fit.  That is puzzling about the first pair puzzled.gif

 

Is it possible that they will surface eventually and you will have a bonus pair?

However, thought I'd share my family photo of brothers from different mothers on this memorial day.

The All-American Boot Collection:

Nice boot collection!  And thanks for sharing.

 

I have to say, I'm a little disappointed in the turnout so far...


Nice boots Clambake, and I agree Bakes!  I suppose this is a holiday weekend and many are out.

day tripper from leffot.

 

brown alpine grain from LS and yes, CXL wingtip on plaza, also from LS.

 

yea I'm stumped about the missing 11.5 LWB from jcrew. credit card was charged, but a week later, nada.. they researched for a couple days but cannot find anything.. only had the 11d left, which I'll admit I've never tried fitting in barrie. my heads going to spin if they fit, as I'll have to swap out all my 11.5 for 11 rotflmao.gif

My grails (pardon me for including my Marlows).


My imposters... These are my introduction to leather soled shoes; my gateway drug.  Alden for J Crew came shortly afterward.
Allen Edmonds Auburn and Florsheim Pebble grain LWBs.

Happy Memorial Day my friends...


RTP, very nicely done sir

Thank you CTYGGG!

Bakes, I can't believe the quick growth either.  I've doubled my shells since my last family pic in October (this thread is killing me).  I have to admit that I wear my calf LWBs quite a bit for fear of scuffing up my shells or rain.  I will get over that though.  It's like someone wise said here on this thread at least in so many words... "They're shoes that are meant to be worn, not Rembrandts."  Truth be told, some of these shoes are so gorgeous I am afraid to mess them up.

 

I haven't bought any calf since either, but I have picked up some nice suede.  Have a nice four day week everyone!

So sad they were sold out of my size.

1 for 3.  At least  I didn't strike-out.

 

I did think that #2 looked a little grainy, but could not remember a grain WTB in that color, but now I can.

That would indeed open up an entirely new can of worms.  Maybe you could justify just replacing the LWB, as they (deadhorse-a.gif) that they fit larger than other barrie make-ups.

Fine collection BeSpiff... I think you and I are acquiring at about the same pace.  Well done my friend!

I know the feeling.  That's why I simply cold-clock anyone who gets within an arms length of me while I'm wearing shells (children and elderly included).  Can't risk having a clumsy person mar my shoes by stepping on them.

RTP, between you, CTYGGG, MrDv, and Bakes, you guys just killed it today. It was simply an awesome display of horses rump footwear. To all those who also posted their own family photos my thanks and gratitude.

That is a solid collection that you have going there yourself, by any standard.  Your Cigar LHS looks like an especially fine specimen.

 

Don't know about anyone else, but all these collection shots today makes me want to take this disease to the next level!

Thanks friend.  I'm honored but those guys are in a different league.  Don't leave out Zippyh... that was impressive.
