With respect to the rich boys here, this thread is for the rest of us, to also enjoy our shoes too. As most men in North America (if not the world) cannot afford to buy Alden and up, we do have our own 'High End' shoe options; that being primarily Allen Edmonds. Welcome, Cruiser! I wondered when you'd start posting over here! You know that, for the same money, you could have gotten a pair of bespoke Lobb St. James, right? -- Two pair, given the current sale.
