• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Do post a pix, always wanted one, but could never figure out when/how/where to wear it. It will look great with a horsey head! And to keep it on point, a pair of AE shoes or boots.
I was hoping to wear my Navy Shell Fifth Streets for the thing, but that's definitely not looking like a probable outcome.

Guessing the micro houndstooth suit (the trousers from which you were asking about in another thread), a light blue shirt, and this bad boy would be a proper level of peacock. Oh and I have a lapel pin that's got Skeletor on it and says "Live Laugh Love". Maybe the black Shakers a certain someone sent my way.... :hide:

Well, thought I'd share the list of my AE shoe purchases plus a couple vintage models that I finally jotted down today.
Did all start with the Boulder but otherwise not in chronological order. Next step will be to fill in the blanks plus add more details like last#, sole type, etc. then transfer to a spreadsheet for handy viewing and updating.
Did I just mention, "updating"?! Hoo, boy.

Edit: I see now that I wrote "Kenwood" for Kenmoor. Ah well, first draft. lol.

Over on the Alden thread some folks started posting their "Favorite 5" pairs from their collection at the suggestion of @mdubs. Most are well behaved and include only Alden. I bucked tradition and included 3 different brands. So, what are the favorite 5 in YOUR collection?

I’d say you were autocorrected to kenmoor, but it’s piece of paper

Good question and easy to answer now that I have a "list".

1. Boulder in blue. My first AE!!
2. Fifth Ave. in dk. chili. The staining and shading is just masterful.
3. Surrey in brown. So well made and nice to touch plus it's on dainite (sorry).
4. MacNeil in brg. crdvn. My first and only shell!
5. MacNeil in oxblood. B/c.. It's oxblood.

Well, that's my AE "Top 5". Look forward to reading all of yours and I know you're going to have a lot tougher time narrowing it down. lol.

I'll do this, but I'm actually going to have to think a bit more. Right now, I can easily say my brown shell HMs will be near the top.
