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.
Bourbon shell dundee
Shaved shell 1st Ave
Natural CXL HM
Burgundy shell leeds
Merlot calf 5th Ave (surely soon to be replaced by chili shell 1st Ave upon arrival)
Great responses, but it would be better with pictures if you have them.

Like @smfdoc I will “buck tradition” and list my current Fave Five without regard to brand. No particular order. Not coincidentally, these have gotten the most wear in 2019. Apologies for grainy photos:

* stock Indy 405
* Dublin MTO Long Branch
* C&J Galway II’s
* McGraw in truffle shell
* C&J Cavendish II’s

All finished with the anal probing at the airport. All because I have no bag.

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?
At the moment here are my top 5.
1. 1A Navy Shell
2. Dundee Bourbon Shell
3. Winter Strand with lug sole
4. Maxfield in Chili
5. Madison Park dye job.
Honerable mentions:
1. Magnanni Appollo wood color
2. Mezlan Lizard and Calf moc

Wearing MTO (rubber soles and heels) black Rutledges (and grey flannel trousers) today.

IMG_2874.jpeg


For fans of "A-E In The Wild" pictures, with one of the several poets I met tonight at the VIRGA, a Poetry Ritual event at Diehl Marcus & Company in East Hollywood.

IMG_2880.jpeg


Tonight's discovery, noticed everyone else's cell phones took better pictures in low light than my iPhone 5c.

For those who want to see more poet's pictures in shoe threads, here are two more poets.

IMG_2888.jpeg


For those who want to see still more poet's pictures, here's one more.

Unfortunately didn't get a picture of the poet whose works were full of allusions to classic (mostly Greek) literature.

For those who don't want to see poets but do want to see food, here's some of the food (before I ate several of the cookies) and, on the off chance anyone in this group is an organ grinder, what may be a nice new uniform jacket for your monkey.

You sure this wasn’t “The queen of the undead poet society”?

I won an ascot from Spoo on ebay. It's my first ascot. I'm quite excited to find an excuse to wear it....maybe Thanksgiving dinner....
Ascots are the best, I have 5 or 6.

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:

A very nice combo to be sure! It should look great and "peacock" enough. I would have to google how to properly wear an ascot, but damn that looks nice.

Basically a four-in-hand directly around your neck with the top one or two buttons open on your shirt, and the ends stay inside the shirt.

Non-shoe related:
I decided to try a leather band with my new Seiko. Someone last week said that when a leather band is worn with a dive watch, it looks best if it’s a simple band. I had a simple leather band — it was tan, and just didn’t look that great in my opinion. I wanted a band that had some dark brown and reddish hues to it, like the original NATO strap. Well, you know what that means.... I went to work with some leather dye.

Original NATO strap:

How does that combination look?

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
