    My first ever family photo!  

    FYI, I built this entire collection, except 3 pairs, during 2012 - I may win the award for most dangerous shoe habit.

    Enjoy, and let me know what pair you think I should get next!

    very nice wardrobe
    consider tassel

    Cross-posted from the thrifting thread - here's my haul from today, which included two pairs of Aldens. They look like shell cordovan but was wondering what the Alden experts thought:

    Good haul today - EG for RLPL plain toe with elastic side gussets in what I think is burnt pine; Berluti brogued loafers; two pair of burgundy Alden loafers - a full-strap and tassel loafer, I think both are cordovan; and a pair of tassel loafers from Grenson for Paul Stuart; and - the real shocker - all in my size (US 10), although its probably all going to eBay. Also found $1.00 ties from Polo Ralph Lauren, Hermes, and Turnbull & Asser, and a pair of PRL suspenders:

    Now I'm not sure if I like those more or the cigar you posted the other day more. Both gorgeous.

    Been hit or miss for me. Received the list once and have not seen another, but have heard of people getting it. So missed one already this year.

    I just started with TSM seconds list. I received the last two emails. Seems to be going fine so far. I also get misc marketing emails from them.

    Have a camping trip with my students coming up, brought out the 404 Kudu Indys from storage. These have been through multiple camping trips, broken glass all over bars, a few feet of snow / ice /sleet and normal everyday wear. My first pair of Aldens (damn you Barney's for introducing me at such a great price) and still looks pretty new and lug sole is showing just a little bit of wear. Only care I've down is wipe down and a light coat of neatsfoot oil before putting the boots away. These are probably my best fitting boots as well, fits smaller than my 403 Indys and is literally the best fitting shoe I own with a pair of merino wool hiking socks.
