    Tis a good thing! For what we pay for these shoes, they ought to fit right !


    Superb acquisitions ! Congrats!



    These are perfection. Color 8 Tankers were the first pair of shell Aldens I ever bought and I think to this day they're my favorite model. Maybe color 4 tankers could convince me otherwise...

    Looking great Elj! Enjoy them Chamois!


    Your new LWBs are looking great!


    Your Color 8 PCTs are looking superb Henry. Those slacks are great as well.


    Master D, always killing it. That is just a great combination Don!


    Howdy, those are looking good. B. Nelson does a good job on stuff in general. For Toppy's I just got to a local cobbler, which for me is this place called San Marcos Boot Shop. They did a great job, despite being a smaller, not internet known shop. They actually told me that I should wear them once or twice before bringing them, because they have to sand them down anyways in order to get the glue to stick. So I might as well just naturally sand them down.


    Nicely done Alpina, your boots and bluchers look happy! Yeah, the eyestays definitely will cause an uneven color wearing... :) Which makes for fun comparisons.


    Awesome. They look even better on your feet than they did in your house.


    Looking great in your Ravellos. Did you convert the edges? The welt is dark...


    Looking good Buda! I think that this particular makeup, has to have been the most popular design for customers in 2015... NST in 8 on Antique.

    Gentlemen,

    These have been slowly introduced here over the past few weeks, but I am happy to share with you more pictures of what I like to call the "Semi-Brogue Boot".

    Made by TheShoeMart on the Plaza Last in both a dressy Black Shell Cordovan and its fun Color 8 Shell Cordovan on Antique Edge cousin.

    Those old cigar captoes are incredibly cool. Good color.

    @mdubs - I'm glad you were able to acquire a boot style you like. Well done.

    You will have to share some top down pics, on your feet or not.

    I have seen this "semi-brogue" boot style without the brogueing on the toe, which is excellent as well! Cheers.

    Hey, thanks guys! As much as I like the Color 8's, the Black is just absurdly awesome. Very happy to happen, took over a year to get them...
