I really enjoy @Roycru posts with his sardonic wit and general disdain for life itself so I think this graphic is a great way to honor his contributions to StyleForum. I only hope to be as cool as he is when I reach that age.

I got bored of my coffee Loafers very quickly (colour, not the style) but I love my Oxblood Macneils a little more every time I wear them.
I almost mentioned this. I recommended coffee because I think it's the shoe equivalent of a swiss army knife. It's great if you are starting out and want shoes you can wear with anything.

However @NYCTechNerd seems like he's going to end up with a sizable collection and someone like that won't want 60 swiss army knives, he's going to want 60 specialty knives

I think that's part of the reason AEAT members like green shell so much. Once you have 40-50+ shoes you start really valuing the exotic or unusual.

Oxblood is probably more likely to continue to be worn as part of a large collection whereas coffee might transition to foul weather shoes or the back of the closet

Details on the briefcase??
Purchased from a Romanian dude on etsy
The leather masks he makes are .... something else

I'm not in the market for this sort of thing but I do like the craftsmanship and am fascinated by this aesthetic, like eyes wide shut meets Bane.

These would be great to wear to Costco during COVID

I have mentioned it before but I will again for purposes of this interaction: I live in a small 789sqft apartment with my wife, by choice, which means we have very little closet and storage space for clothing and shoes. As such, I wanted an updated and multipurpose but small shoe collection. One of the reasons I joined SF not that long ago was to seek advice on that very subject and goal. What I got was much different.

I have encountered a wonderful community of shoe enthusiasts, especially in the Alden, Allen Edmonds, and Carmina threads I frequent the most. Unfortunately, what comes with it is an onslaught of pictures of shoes that I never thought I would "want" let alone believe I might actually "need". So as my collection will probably grow beyond what I had planned for, I blame all of you for that. :brick:

If you don't have at least 20 pairs of shoes, are you even an internet dandy?

I feel your pain. I’m now on the other side of that struggle. For a while I bought WAY too many pairs so I now have an oversized collection. I’m slowly reducing and replacing to come down to a smaller but more distinguished collection. It’s likely that at some point the only AEs I own will be from trunk shows or GMTO.

I could use a bit more coffee and Sullivan Streets. I find the coffee color extremely versatile and well this boot fits so well. Unfortunately it is my only coffee color shoe or boot.
Was the SS made in burgundy? I would grab that in a split second.

The Sullivan Street's life was cut too short. I believe it was released in dark brown (not sure on the AE name), coffee, and black. I, unfortunately, had to pass my OG dark browns on to a new home as I ended up going with down a half length and up a width leaving me with just the coffee and black. @ae_ashley These would be a great pattern for a mixed material (shell + calf/suede/exotic) trunk show. A burgundy shell pair would be an instant purchase.
