nephew,
thank you
you are fortunate to have good mentors

Great shoes and combo Uncle. Of the rare shell colors, which is your favorite LHS?

Always nice, Namor. 

What are the trousers?

OK, I think I found a shop with my size in Cordovan Indys.

 

I'm concerned about the sizing.  

 

My longer foot is a 11 on the dot on a Brannock and the shorter is between a 10.5 and 11.  Both widths are precisely in the middle of D and E.  This is barefoot.

 

For what it's worth I wear a 11.5 in Asics running shoes.

 

I talked to J Gilbert while on the hunt for them (they don't have any) and they say that I should go down to a 10.  Popular opinion says I should be a 10.5 from what I've gathered...

 

I don't plan on dressing up these often.  More often than not I would be wearing medium thickness smart wool or people's socks.

 

I don't have anywhere to try Aldens on, unfortunately.  

 

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Same here.  Been using Reno for a few years now and thought I'd try the VSC for comparison.

Why is almost everyone in this thread a "Senior Member"?  Is it like the adult film industry, where you're automatically a "Star"?  

 

Maybe SF should start stratifying members by adding additional tiers.

What are the current tiers?

I agree. I am assuming you are targeting the Trubalance lasted Indy.

Yes the Trubalance last.

What is the best course of action for a defect on this pair of color 8 longwings that were purchased at Alden or Carmel a couple of years go but only have around 6-7 wears on them. As you can see from the picture, the stitching is coming off. Do I contact Alden directly or Alden of Carmel?

I could be wrong, but it looked like Howie Long was wearing NSTs during the Super Bowl halftime analysis.

Where's Tom and his TIVO. I didn't catch it if he was. But I was working the Chili.
