Hopefully that's not a sign of things to come - only going up to 11M.


My friend, it's just louder than ten, it is!  :rotflmao:

I've recently made a foray into other brands and interests and, accordingly, have begun perusing other sf threads. While I've also appreciated the information and pictures I've encountered in those other threads, it's been my experience that there is much more flaming and trolling if not overt snippiness, passive aggression and hostility there. We here in the Alden department seem to be able to share our enthusiasm and even our conceptual disagreements without getting catty or losing civility (even when it comes to the calf vs. shell debate). Thank you for the camaraderie and for supporting my ongoing habit. Good day, good sirs!


+1, you're a good man Doc...

Somehow both of these statements are true.

after sitting on the fence for almost two years about buying a pair of shell LW, i finally picked up a pair.

they arrived today, and on closer inspection (i tried them on at the shop, then had them sent to save on taxes) i noticed a small roll/bulb/on the toe, where the upper meets the welt.

it's really nothing, and i realize that these are handmade shoes, but they're not exactly cheap. am i being OCD and overreacting?

i also noticed some minor asymmetry with the broguing.

Those look fine to me. They will look far worse after being worn outside for 30 minutes

+1.  If you look at any pair of new Alden shoes long enough, you'll find slight imperfections.

I agree. That is the reason I hated SF for so long and might have come across a bit blunt myself initially - because I was expecting the snippiness that is prevalent in the majority of SF. If I did, I apologize since everyone here has been helpful and not holier than thou at all.

What size? If they're 8.5, I'll trade you a pair of 10.5's for them. :thumbs-up:
