I already gave my family the speech this weekend that should I get in a car crash tomorrow and not make it, they are to log in here and offer my collection to those in this thread.

Did you mention the collection might be worth the equivalent of a nice little insurance policy? Sleep with one eye open!1159[1].gif

All are good options (along with Cordovan and Horween).

I hope to have a son some day, to go with my twin girls, Patina and Shell.

not alden related, so please forgive, but I spend the bulk of my time in here.

 

i'm working on some custom shoe bags and need some drawstring "pulls". material and drawstring yarn has been procured. 

 

the brass style from alden would suffice, as would the simple lace lock style that other manuf offer..

 

any recommendations?

 

thanks in advance!

my fathers eyes popped when the conversation came up today concerning investment lol.. I keep pushing him to head back to NE to visit family (so I can hit shoemart and the other shops up there :rotflmao: )

Namor,

 

via google images I stumbled on this post - found your sizing pretty interesting.  

 

 

 

Especially the +0.5 same width between Grant and Plaza captoes

- i was a bit hesitant but this is what i felt i probably was

(complicated by the fact that I only had access to Grant sizes that where either just to big or just too small and sold out the D and E sizes in between and the only Plaza I have had available was a Loafer).

 

Your Barrie and TB sizing makes me suspect that sizing C in Barrie might work for me.

 

Sometimes I feel like developing an Alden Habit (especially somewhere where they are not easily accessible) is like a kind of masochistic Treasure Hunt in which you hunt for something that  represents what you want (a shoe / boot shaped on the same last as what you desire) with the prize being "CONGRATULATIONS! YOU CAN NOW SPEND ALMOST $1000!" !!!!

.... There is the bonus additional kicker/booby trap when because of variations between models it might still not fit meaning "UNLUCKY!  WASTED MONIES!".

Got a shipping notice for my J Crew PCTs, so I'll be posting a maiden voyage shot of those as well pretty soon. Although, they shipped to my old address, so I'll have to wait for them to be forwarded to me. Probably won't get here till mid-next week.

Got these recently from the Shoemart irregulars sale.  Clearly from the stitching and darker welt they were made for J Crew, but instead of the Jcrew logo inside there is just the Alden stamp, which I prefer.  Interesting that they ended up at the Shoemart though...  Now just to see if they fit.  If they don't I may end up listing them for sale (10D).

If anyone has the 9.5E ShoeMart irregular list, could you please PM me? Thanks

I'll be leaving work early to attempt to intercept these of course :nodding:

Lovely as always...Where did you originally get these? I know most shops seem to do the dark edge trim with Ravello, but I really love the lighter color.
