She does however have a predilection for upbraiding me in public about how much golf I play, and she verbally horse whips me about my obsession with shoes made from a certain quadrupeds rearend. Invariably people, especially women, look down at my shoes and want to know who makes them and where they can get them. I dare say that I've made a couple conversions to our shared appreciation for Alden footwear because of her teasing.

I also find myself in this situation in social gatherings. I tend to over enunciate the word "Alden" so people don't think I'm wearing Aldo !

blue collar, simply unreal is the amazing commonality of experience. I'll try saying ALL-den when asked about the brand, because when I say Alden the response I get is a quizical "huh"?

Here are pics of the recent 405s I got from the Shoemart, with the slightly odd leather.  Pics don't really show it I don't think, but here they are anyway. I had just tried on some 405s in a couple of stores in recent months, so had in mind the stiff slightly textured cowhide, and these are softer and (again) look sort of like fake leather in person.  Anyway...

i haven't read anything good about the jcrew version due to the shape i think.

Color 8 brogues. The Leffot X Antique longwings have more of a "brown" tone than the other two, which are more eggplant
