H there, Alden is an excellent choice, great quality brand. Welcome to our forum!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
