    Anybody have a favorite shoe tree that is as good as the Alden ones? Leather Soul has good ones (that are made at the same place they make the Alden shoe trees), but they're currently out of my size.

    Tifosi, you have a sharp and thrifty attitude toward fiduciary expenditures. Bravo young conservative.

    I just got my first pair of raw denim back from the tailor. I'm hoping they aren't a gateway...

    The more I see the Indy boot in suede the more I want to add a pair to my rotation.

    Thanks green garden! I'd wait, but I've never had any luck buying cordovan on discount during those sales … they're usually excluded :(

    HA! That didn't even occur to me when I typed that :)
    Thanks Bakes! I thought about that, but subsequently forgot. That is definitely plan A.

    I've been using Rochester trees found here: http://www.onecedarlane.com/. I like the high vamp on the Washburn.

    Tifosi take a serious look at Gustin Denim for good raw denims, if you are interested at all let me reffer you and we'll both benefit.

    Hi Tifosi,

    I just started breaking in my first pair of raws this week. I went with Pure Blue Japan's xx-013 from Blue in Green. I'm pretty sure we're heading down a dark path, just like with the Alden addiction.

    And you guys with the timepieces, absolutely stunning! I feel ever more motivated to get decent pics of my watch, a Breitling crosswind that gets worn either on a stainless bracelet or colored nato straps. Working up the nerve to drop the change on Leffot's shell straps.

    Have a good one!
