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

Well @shirtingfantasy took care of that visual example of AM's cordovan shoes haha.It's a very American casual look. But this stying seems to be quite different from the AM type house style. Btw has AM made cordovan shoes before? I don't recall seeing any in the past?
Btw, what is your IG handle? Would be nice to see regular postings on your 100+ shoes.
You hit the nail on the head. It really is a non issue given the amount of shoes I have. Same thing with resoling. I laugh at the notion.. Har Har Harrrrrdeee har har (Ralph Kramden laugh for those with older fathers you will understand or some of you old farts yourselves ).alden shell has those acrylic finish though? How long do they last (I guess given your rotation that’s not an issue)
u lucky your wife asked you to give up social media with her instead of giving up wearing shoes!Well @shirtingfantasy took care of that visual example of AM's cordovan shoes haha.
Alden definitely is the blah American silhouette, along with AE. If you compare it to AM, it seems prehistoric. Although, I must say I like it because of that visual difference. Not to mention it holds sentimental value due to it being my first ever cordovan. Additionally, it demonstrates my progression on this long, sometimes absent minded & impulsive, shoe journey.
I remember at the time thinking I was crazy to spend so much for a pair of heavy a$$ shoes. How I have expanded those self-imposed restraints since.
I actually do not do IG, or Facebook, or any interactive social media. I guess I am old school. Plus my wife and I promised each other we would not engage in practices that would distract us from the kids or ourselves.
I found that, when we were on FB years ago, it was too much of an addictive behavior. It becomes part of the daily routine. Like me see what such and such posted, or what they are doing, who has commented, etc. It kind of becomes a vicious cycle where you are trapped in that loop.
I think I read somewhere your average person checks their phone 100 times a day. So if we were so wrapped up in our phones, our fear was something could happen with the kids and we would miss it (positive or negative).
Anywho, feels cool to still make those connections through personal contact, or a phone calI, or an email.
Saying that, I would love to show my shoes like some of the other fellas do. Probably will do once the kids get older. When I do, I'll let you boys know. In the meantime, you have to settle for me flashing bad pictures with my phone .
By the way, I appreciate you guys on SF sharing your IG posts. Keeps me up to date since I miss EVERYTHING cool haha.

Actually the other reason is for my safety. If I posted that many pictures of all my shoes, how on earth can I deny they are all my shoes.u lucky your wife asked you to give up social media with her instead of giving up wearing shoes!
Checking how shiny your shoes are may pose a larger distraction compared to social media. But then again probably a good thing or you will be making us boys waste a whole lot of time each day checking out your collection.
Believe you’re referring to the Hastatus 2, which we were just discussing above. Sounds like they’re starting to be shipped out. Members had the option of receiving their order without the peaked heel counter or waiting 2-3 months longer for their order to be corrected. For the orders that wanted a remake with the peaked heel counter, it’s probably a good guess that the original pairs will show up on AM’s website as outlet stock.pictures!
by the way wonder what happen to the gmto where heel counter was of the other design and people didn’t want that model, some future outlet stock or patina service?
Wow! These are fantastic. I only own one pair of shell cordovan (jodphur boots from another maker) in my collection and a wallet. I don't obsess over shell like some of my shoe friends, but I also appreciate it as a unique type of leather in my rotation (recently added waxed kudu, Utah hatchgrain, Russian calf from Bakers).Rare gems.
