    In the Alden family now. Bought those shoes for a ridiculous discount. Recall I was looking at the 990 Shell Cordovan a few days ago and they look slightly worn in stores?

    The manager was about to give me 25% off from the gate given my haggling but I talked about tax so she gave me 30% off so I saved 216 bucks maybe more. I'm pretty happy with my decision.

    I say it's fine typically. however, if I remember correctly, you have yours shined to a very bright purply red. so your feet may "stick out" a bit, but will look cool.

    Thank you :) Can't believe I got an even better deal than before. She said "I will give you 30% Off...but you have to buy them now." as the store was closing lol.

    Mac, I think you are right. Earlier than the late 70's for sure.

    I really wish more retailers would do that blucher with the hand stitched apron. I've seen pictures of them on Instagram in black/color 8 shell and they look amazing. It seems like that model on shows up in Asian dealers/markets but it's such a great looking shoe.

    Thank you, sir.

    Your black shells are also very nice with the pants and argyles.

    I'm going to consider this a PSA due to the desirability of the makeup. I have an 8.5D color 8 longwing w/antique edge from Bureau Belfast that I don't plan on keeping. Anyone interested in covering my cost, PM me by tomorrow. Otherwise, back they go. They are perfect and completely flawless.
