Sorry to stray, couldn't help myself.  wink.gif

Uncle, you're looking good in your ravello LHS, as usual!

nephew,
thank you
in the carter years-do you know what the prime rate was?

Don't have a Plaza show but my feeling is that the Plaza and Aberdeen are very close in fit...

nephew,
congratulations!

nephew,
based on your picture-your indy's just need mac treatment

evening uncle..

 

thanks for the feedback. I gave them a little reno treatment and a solid brushing this evening over some Breaking Bad. definitely an improvement, but my skills need honing for sure.

If I recall correctly, didn't it get as high as 19 3/4?

This one, for me, is easy:
Shoe - Aberdeen
Boot - Plaza

It would be a far better use of your time hitting the architectural boat tour down the Chicago River, walking the lakefront, going to the Shedd Aquarium, the Museum of Natural History, the Art Institute and the modern art museum, all of which are of the best around.  

Equally surprising and disappointing. I just assumed that Chicago would be one of the best cities for Alden shopping. The boat tour and aquarium are already on the agenda. Thanks for all of the suggestions. You have a few that I'm sure we'll add to our agenda.

I seem to remember getting on a list for a funky sounding pair of LWBs from LS ages ago, but I've completely given up on those. I believe they were #8, Plaza, brown edging, and brass eyelets.
Those Leffot Tankers have a way of doing that. They called to me too, and I answered.

It seems that all Aldens are excluded from J.Crew Coupons

For those of you into the Modified last, Browns of London has some shell cap toe boots and bluchers. They're expensive, so you might want to see if Moulded Shoe has your size first, but you can knock off 20% for the VAT and I also saw a free shipping worldwide shipping code.

typically, yes. but as of two weeks ago, 20% (IIRC) off did work.

good to know. I sent a recent email to moulded to see what stock, if any, they had in ML but hadnt yet heard back.

 

thanks for the heads up!
