    Shoe and Boot Storage

    After years dealing with dust getting on my shoes that I wear less often, I decided to buy some enclosed shoe storage boxes. Most of these kinds of boxes are very flimsy, hard to assemble and don't stack very well. But I found these Antbox units which have almost no assembly and are sturdy...

    The Official Alden Thread for 2023 - Share Reviews, Sizing, Advice, and Photos.

    Thanks for the great info! I think I'm going to give the pair of 379x's a shot and see if they work for my feet, so hopefully they aren't too bad or I'll be testing out the brogueshop.com return process.

    The Official Alden Thread for 2023 - Share Reviews, Sizing, Advice, and Photos.

    I'm a long time Barrie last fan, but really want a pair of Aldens built on the 379x Military Last. Has anyone tried or owned both and can comment to their differences in daily wear? I love the wide toe box of the Barrie, while it being narrow enough in the heel to not slip around. Alden X...

    HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014)

    Random Ebay suit found by searching my measurements, avoiding having to buy and tailor suits until I drop some weight to fit into my closet full of pre-covid sized suits. (Be quiet, it will happen :) )

    Closet inventory - is there such a thing as too much

    At some stage it becomes more about the hunt than about enjoying what you have. And that can turn into an appetite that is never satiated, so you have to ask yourself why you're doing it at all? I have a lot of experience with this and have been liberated by letting go some of my collections...

    Caring for Dark shoes with Lighter Welt?

    How do you polish and care for dark dress shoes with a contrasting natural or lighter colored welt around them? Could you ever trust an average airport shoe shine with shoes like this on?

    Best common, highly available dress sock - I'm throwing my socks away!

    I'm throwing all of my socks out! In a house with teenage boys I'm tired of hunting for a sock match so I'm going to buy 20-30 pairs of identical black dress socks and throwing everything else away. Tried these gold toe windsor wool socks but they aren't nearly as good as the old gold toe...

    I've tried so many shoes over the years but the only ones that seem to fit me well are Alden Barrie Last 10 D. Longwing bluchers, Plaintoe Bluchers, Chukkas.

    Cordovan restore/care on shoes that are used - Video Request?

    Update: Spent 5 minutes using deer bone on left shoe in this pic, after applying renovateur and letting it dry and brushing it. I was not gentle in any way, I really got after it and am surprised at the difference it made. I'm a believer.

    Cordovan restore/care on shoes that are used - Video Request?

    There are many videos out there on caring for and polishing cordovan. But, most people willing to do shoe videos seem to show shoes that are new or extremely well cared for. Are there any videos out there that start with well-worn or beat shell cordovan shoes with deep wrinkles, whitening...

    Road Salt, Ice Melt and Leather Sole Shoes - Save Our Soles!

    Tried that, ended up with these on: But in seriousness, I do have "Salt Shoes" that are still leather soles but that I care less about. I wear them when it's wet and salty. When it's dry it's tempting to wear nicer shoes and do my best to dust off the salt each time I have to go outside.

    Road Salt, Ice Melt and Leather Sole Shoes - Save Our Soles!

    Anyone else have to deal with salt like this and what do you do about it? They spread it here when it's icy, making things salty and slimy when wet then when it dries up, it looks like this. And for some reason they tend to throw a bit more on top of it for good measure. I've considered...
