That sounds like a pretty sick make-up.

I appreciate you sharing your experience.

^ I almost forgot about the Thor boot...I wonder if that will ever get confirmed. There was a huge number of people on the list for that, around 25 I think.

35 iirc.  I'm still hopefull that it will get confirmed, however, I don't expect it anytime soon.

 

I just hope they don't mess up the details and give it speed hooks or something. (I hate those things!)

Does anyone play fantasy bball? You guys want to get a bball yahoo bball league going? We can do $50 buy-in with 12 people. 1st place would get $400 or so, etc. thats enough for a pair of alden shell from the shoe mart seconds list. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Which begs the question... What is your next grail, Doc?

 

What's your current Alden Line-up?  It has to have gotten pretty big by now.  (Don't include your AE make-ups, they don't count)

 

...and of course, wear your grail LWB in good health.

 

My next grails, Bakes, would have to be (in order of preference) a ravello brixton, ravello lhs, a cigar shell boot of any kind, and maybe a secondhand #4 lwb (I'm told by either Alden SF or DC iirc that Alden will no longer be making #4). It's scary how this list just flowed out naturally; I've been scarce on this thread lately, trying to quell the purchases as of late as dear wife and I just moved into our new house this summer and she decided it would be a great idea to install a koi pond. The koi are great to watch, but I still calculate how many shells that could have purchased :)

 

Current lineup, off the top of my head includes the following (I'll try to follow up with pics someday, especially after missing out on the family pic fest during Memorial Day weekend):

 

LWBs:

-Cigar from AoC

-Color 8 from Citi

-Ravello as of today

-Snuff suede from JC

-Tobacco waxed fake CXL from JC

- Natty CXL on Leydon from Epaulet

 

Boots:

- Ultimate Indy from LS

- Alpine Grain WTB on Barrie from LS

- Color 8 Cap Toe on Grant (DC)

- Color 8 WTB on Plaza (LS)

- Black shell Naval from Leffot

 

Other:

Cigar PTB (Alden of DC, purchased just before the summer. NB - I was told they still had several in stock. Hurry!)

Cigar LHS (my first shell purchase after encouragement from you, Bakes!)

Black shell cadet perf cap toe blucher from JCrew

Unlined snuff suede penny from NeedSupply (always good for the SF discount. don't forget to ask them for it!!)

Unlined snuff suede chukka from Citi

 

Thanks for not making me enumerate the AE collection and reliving the fact that I foolishly purchased not one, but two pairs of the AE larchmonts in succession last summer just before Aldenitis struck. :violin:The money spent on those two mistakes could have covered most, if not all of the cost of a ravello boot. You live, you learn...

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

A bit darker than most cigar, but perhaps appropriately so given the formal nature of this shoe, as JermynStreet has pointed out in the past.

 

 

 

 

 

Wow, those pics sell them better than any stock photo. I'm still in the occasional suit, but I'd still wear them just with dress pants/shirts to get use out of them (no one is calling the fashion police around here). I have other choices for the chinos/jeans days.

Looking forward to seeing all the captoe plaza boots.

 

So,  who's waiting?

That's cool. Ours is ordered so the worst record and/lowest points is first and goes in order from the bottom up.

We will get something organized next year

I would love to take a look at the color 8 saddles but I can't seem to get the website to translate for me. Any chance you could post a link?

Namor, I'd be down for fantasy bball. Auction is the way to go if you haven't tried it. Checkers v. Chess.

Those are nice. I think I like the Leffot alpine grain saddles a bit more but those are quite nice
