Thanks dddrees, being comfortable is very important. All my summer silks I buy from consignment or secondhand stores. Why pay a hundred hundred when you can pay ten. Collecting rare and vintage museum quality Hawaiian shirts is almost as crazy as tracking down grail colored Alden shell.

Thanks!

 

No, my cousin was the bride.

 

I'm not interested in getting married because I enjoy not having to hide new shoes from a wife.

Been away for a few days. I wanted to jump in on the color 4 convo. I have seen one pair of color 4s, out of all the shops I have visited. If it weren't for the kindness of Steven at leffot I may have never seen a pair.

The reason I bring it up here is that having an unlined shaft and the lighter weight may make this cordovan boot cooler to wear in warmer temps.  Anyone here have similar thoughts or experience with this?

nephew,
when you get the opportunity, please post picture of your new acquisition

Uncle, thank you very much. A trip to Hawaii wil have to wait, preferably during our cold Minnesota winters, but I like to be prepared.

I don't see that much of a difference in weight between my Daltons and my Aldens, although the Aldens are heavier.  Here are the weights of my boots (yes, this is OCD behavior):

- unlined walnut shell Daltons:  1lb 3oz

- lined shell Daltons:  1lb 5oz

- lined calf Daltons:  1lb 5oz

- lined shell Aldens:  1lb 8oz

- lined calf Aldens:  1lb 8oz

- lined CXL Indy Aldens with neocork soles: 1lb 11oz

 

I don't feel the heaviness of any of the boots except for the Indy's and I attribute that to the neocork sole (I think).

BeSpiff, if you enjoy genuine Hawaiian shirts you ought to check "Jams World."  I ran a retail store while working through college and sold these awesome made-in-Hawaii "Hawaiian shirts."  Notice the hand-painted buttons and the left chest pocket designed perfectly to match the background (can barely tell there is a pocket there).  These are my favorite Hawaiian shirts; I got all of mine for 1/2 off of cost.  I miss those youthful days (but not that much)...
