The tan moc toe shoes on the white soles aren't too far off from what some other makers are producing today (such as Red Wing). The "Indy shoe" models resoled on a white sole wouldn't look too far off.

Cigar LWB today. Got caught in a surprise rain shower today so these will need some Mac-love when I get home.
Light brown and olive tones on these hides starting to come through nicely.

Didn't you see the clouds today? I was even getting flood warning on my iPhone (never had that even when Sandy was en route). I played it safe and wore my C&J Pembrokes.

I'm an optimistic kinda guy. Clouds don't phase me.

The AOC archive photos reaffirmed my stance on the plaza last. More alden make ups should be on plaza.

I'll admit I threw on some calfskin AE PTB's when I saw today's weather as well. I'm glad I did. By 3PM, my iphone was buzzing with tornado and flash flood warnings for my town.

Hi Everyone,

 

First time posting in a long time. Needless to say, I appreciate all the energy and enthusiasm everyone has brought to the thread. It's been busy around here while moving into the new house and doing construction around here, but I thought I'd share some pics of my newest acquisitions, the Leffot Naval Boot in black shell and a cigar ptb from DC.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also, I thought I'd share the latest signs that my Alden habit has spiraled out of control. Undeterred by the hefty expense of installing a koi pond in my front courtyard, I was unable to help myself when LeatherSoul posted the arrival of the refresh of the Color 8 Plaza-lasted wt boot. So desperate was I to finally join the Plaza club that I dug into the funds that had been set aside for the ravello longwings promised to me by Sept by Kathy and the gang in DC--something I told myself I would not do this summer, no matter how seemingly special the makeup. Of course, to truly capture my hitting rock bottom, the money I set aside was not enough to cover the Plaza boots, so I essentially had to ask if I could prepay a large portion of the boots and then pay the balance next week (via cash I was anticipating patients giving me that I could turn into a gift card so as to remain undetected by dear wife). Sensing my desperation and perhaps taking pity on me, Bryan at LS was more than gentlemanly and even offered to throw in some free shoe trees upon payment of the balance smile.gif

 

That's when you know it's bad: when you're putting Aldens on layaway. shog[1].gifThat said, they're Plaza lasted shell boots! Someone please help me.

Stop whining. Some of us could not plaza because a certain retailer did not order "e" sizes.

enjoy and enjoy the goldfish and lwb's I am sure you will find a way to swing.

The Plaza is gonna be bad for you...you're gonna want a few more pairs immediately. smile.gif

rydenfan - that is a nice looking boot, thanks for sharing. I like the dark rough leather. I have been catching up on my Alden leathers as I have been researching the different styles lasts and leathers in anticipation of my first purchase and hadn't seen a rough dark leather like that. docalden2013 - beautiful shoes and laces - god help me if I catch the Shell bug, wear in good health
