    My small but growing collection.

    Chocolate Suede Tassel Loafer, Alden x LS Ultimate Indy, Alden x LS Natty CXL LWB, Alden 965, Unlined Blue Suede Chukka, and #8 LHS

    Started at the beginning of the year, and I have no idea how it got to this point haha. Doesn't help when Leathersoul is down the street from you as well either :)

    I'm cool with this. I have had some nice acquisitions since my last family pic. Looking forward to seeing the diversity of collections in this thread.

    Oh Okay I thought in one of your videos you mentioned being the same size in both the Barrie and the marlow. Thanks for the clarification.

    So . . . to paraphrase, To each his own, but in my opinion, you're pitiful and juvenile??? I don't think there is a need to insult the people who don't share you're opinion.[/quot

    Same size on both, 975 is wider in the toe box and slightly longer, but not enough to go up.

    8.5d in Marlow for me is about the same as 8d in Barrie.

    The gentleman whose post you are referring to has difficulty ,as does a large and growing segment of todays society ,understanding the difference between fact and opinion . As long as that difficulty remains any attempt to engage in intelligent debate is futile .

    Uncle Mac have you spoken to alex lately I haven't seen him post here or AAAC in a long time. His knowledge of shirtings was well appreciated and certainly very valuable.

    My new tan suede chukkas arrived from Rooney today. They're super soft and feel like slippers. I went TTS and they may be a bit narrow, but being so soft and unlined it shouldn't be a problem. Only one shoe bag made the trip and the soles were a bit scuffed (Rooney has concrete floors, if I remember correctly), but I'm not complaining at the sale price.
