    By the lofty standards of this forum, everything here is pretty pedestrian. Still, I wanted to add my small voice to the many fine examples of shoe collections that have been posted. Two of these predate my joining the forum. I haven't included my black shoes because I own only three pair and am generally unimpressed in general terms by black footwear.

    Back row (left to right): Sutor Mantellassi chukka boots; Sutor Mantellassi suede monkstrap chukka boots; Johnston & Murphy calf and canvas spectators; Grenson suede saddle shoes; Ferragamo David

    Front row: Polo Tellman; Peal spectators; Loake Norwich; Allen Edmonds Fairfax; Shipton & Heneage Chairman

    Love it, VG. The specs and Grenson saddles are fantastic. All are very handsome. I really need to get some suede shoes.

    The fairfax looks great -- better, in fact, than it ever did on the AE website. They should employ you to take better photos for them!

    Nice spectators! I also have some canvas and calf, but they are AE's. I love them.
    I just tried some Peal &Co. fro BB, but the last did not work at all. Nice collection VG.

    I'll echo the rest.. nicely rounded collection! Love the spectators, VG.

    As for the Fairfax, I must also say that the website pictures are really awful compared to the actual shoe.

    Thanks, folks, for the kind words on my modest collection. I agree with the thoughts on the Fairfax; AE's photography does it no favors, and it looks quite a bit nicer in person.
