    I bought a pair of 990s from eBay for $450 or so (very lightly worn, probably three times). Probably my best Alden purchase to date. Very few Alden models look better after a fresh buffing

    it's a rainy day here, so i'm rolling with a pair of CXL CT boots/commando soles/barrie last (i think barrie; some have said grant) from hanig's footwear:

    i feel like i don't see a lot of alden CT boots (as opposed to PCT), but i really enjoy this makeup and think it's pretty versatile. although i personally like CXL, seeing @JSO1 's CT boots in ravello shell had me drooling. wow, those are stunning.

    also, now that i'm looking at my socks in this picture, it occurs to me that spring has sprung, and i might need to put away the fair isle stuff for now...

    nice. I think compliments are more a function of color than material-- so my tan calf shoes get a lot more compliments than any other shoes

    The pattern is not exclusive. That's the standard semi-brogue pattern; the brogueing on the cap and last vary.

    i received the seconds list in multiple sizes/widths yesterday. there were 2 pairs of color 8 shell balmorals in 9.5 D (hampton last), but i didn't see anything else that really interested me. it seems like there was more variety in the past 2 seconds lists i received.

    Your Black Shell Norwegian Split Toe Bluchers are great! Aberdeen last? I've been eyeing those for years, every time I get ready to buy something flashier pops up.
    How do you find the fit?
