    As I am Asian, the general rule of no shoes in the house applies even to Alden’s. Given the fact I benefited greatly recently from the Brooks Brothers sale on all their Alden made cordovans (4 pairs), I’ll put in a rec for their Peal and Co slippers which are very comfy.

    I wear very thin merino wool OTC dress socks from Pantherella and Marcolianni but I used to have very skinny but long feet. Now gets a little swollen at the end of the day due to blood pressure medication. I asked someone at Brogue before I placed my order and the advice was spot on. I’d even...

    If you wear thicker socks than dress socks, Barrie would work. Otherwise, I would go down 1/2 size from your Barrie size for dress socks or no socks.

    I only have 4 pairs of Alden boots and numerous lace up shoes. Living in Princeton for the last 20+ years, I consider temps in the teens to be cold requiring boots. Moving back to Santa Monica which is my home town, I imagine that within a few years, just like all other Californians, I’ll...

    I'm moving from the East Coast to SoCal at the end of this year for good so instead of Alden boots and lace up shoes, I've collected 9 new pairs of only loafers over the winter. They are either Alden or Alden for Brooks. There are some duplicates as I got the Aldens first and when the Brooks'...

    Just ordered these this morning after a poster let me know they were back on the BB website. Shipping quickly and I will have them by tomorrow. They will go along with my color 8 tassels from Alden, Milano loafer and Statesman loafer, both from Brogue. Presently, I am on a cordovan loafer kick...
