Greetings Styleforum

I found this site looking for more information about Alden shell cordovan. I was gobsmacked when I first tried on the Alden 975s, it was as though heavenly angels sang as the clouds parted and the sun shown down upon my poor feet, which had wandered in the desert for so so long. I have a few pair in color 8 (the 975s, and a pair of V-tip bluchers) and the black captoe (9016) but was wondering how to break into the rare shell club. (I've learned you need patience). Anyway, Personally, I'm in Bucks County, Pa and the office where I work is more business casual with button down shirts and dress pants. I do like a to roll in with a vintage tweed jacket on top as the weather dictates. I wear suits maybe 8-12 times a year for board meetings and investor meetings. Having said that, I'm in the process of getting my first bespoke suit; a classic navy one to replace one whose race had been run. I can't wait for my toile fitting next week.

OK that's a start, have a nice day everyone
H there, Alden is an excellent choice, great quality brand. Welcome to our forum!

Looking to follow in the footsteps of the greats. Wilkes Bashford, R.H. Macy, Calvin Klein. Fashion is my passion, my vice, and my guilty pleasure. Sales is my blood, sweat, and tears. My vision is for anyone and every one who takes their appearance seriously to have unprecedented access to the clothes of the elite. Why must hand craftsmanship and natural, long lasting sustainability be characteristics of quality out of reach for 99% of people? The average amount an American household spends on clothes per year has dramatically decreased recently, while the average amount of clothes owned/purchased has increased. Less money, more clothes = cheap production and labor, less regulations equaling more damage to the environment, and a heck of a lot more waste. Steve Jobs famously said “People don’t know what they want until you show it to them.” The reality is there is an extremely high demand for quality and sustainability that is not being met, leaving an entire sector of the market untapped. SF is an amazing, living example. When greed is eliminated from the fashion industry it becomes an extremely supportive, value-inspired community brimming with creativity and confidence. If that kind of morality can be applied as a business model, the opportunities are endless. If I succeed in accomplishing my goal, it will bring an end to the era of quality exclusivity and launch us into a new age of style; the 2020’s- the new 1920’s. Thank you very much for the read.

Hi folks. Been lurking some for a few months and decided to join up. I'm mostly interested in vintage shoes (and watches of course) but I also enjoy classic and vintage clothing, particularly when thrifted. I don't typically spend much money on my purchases, which is why I purchase used. Looking forward to exploring the site more!

Ditto! The anti-Facebook for me haha!!
I love your shoe and sock photo! Agree about Facebook - at least you don’t call it ‘FB’!!! It’s what we call ‘naff’ on this side of the Pond.
