I'm glad someone understands my alden humor.
Yes, I know that look. The clerks at the thrift store register run $20 bills by a machine, swipe a highlighter pen over them, and hold them up to the light BEFORE giving me the look.
I never know what to do while that's happening. I feel like my cell is being searched at shawshank for contraband.

Well I'm glad I've gotten some major shell purchases out of the way. Looks like my buying will be more calf oriented this fall/winter. Or maybe I will get some more "standard" shell purchases done. Or better yet, maybe I'll just go into buying hibernation as a couple MTOs and pre-orders should be trickling in...

Lady jeans.  Ouch.  Spoken like a man unable to fit into them.  (As I would not be able to even if my gigantic testosterone levels fell to the basement.)

+1. Great looking boots.

And Uncle, as to your Ravello gunboats, you've done it again.

tifosi, I tried the hibernation method. It required hibernating from SF as well. It works for a while. But then you get curious, want to see what's going on, who's offering what special make up...and soon your back, full throttle!

Good point. I have done quite a bit of ordering and buying the past couple months. Purchases that probably should have been spread out till almost next year, so. Once the shoes/boots start shipping I guess I'll be happy and I won't need this feeling of instant gratification (which I love) of buying stock items. In the coming months up until early next year I will have 2 shell Alden boots, 1 shell LWB and 2 shell Allen Edmonds custom shell orders trickling in. Sheesh when I write it all down...

Barrie-lasted shoes in 8D could not fit me any better.
As for the AE 1-last, I've got a sub-optimal fit on the 8.5D cordovan Leeds ... if it wasn't already too late to exchange, I would have gone for an 8E or even perhaps 8EE.

Speaking of non-shell, any love out there for the Ranger Mocc in reverse chamois? I pulled this one out today because I've been thinking about getting another make up of the Ranger (shell!)

Hmmmm, yea...I think I probably have a little room in the 8D barrie (but not enough to warrant a narrower size) so the cordovan Leeds still fit me very nicely in a D width.

It's political. Sazon disagrees w most of Ulysses s. grant's policies.

I apologize for injecting some historical politics into this thread!  Marxists and right-wingers are embraced on this thread so long as though appreciate Alden and its shell offerings.  (Although I suppose one could not be a Marxist shell-wearing tree-hugger, could they??)

J Gilbert was running a pre-order for these a few months ago. They may still have some sizes available? I think delivery time is roughly October.
