    Henry, looking good my friend! You have a nice collection, that is well rounded. Love the AoSD in your listings... HaHa.


    Reverse Chamois boots are awesome. I love my pair in Navy. Enjoy them my friend!


    Welcome to the Alden club! You have a superb collection of Aldens already. Enjoy them all. Your PCTs are looking great. Don't look down... ;-)

    Nice mixture of shell/suedes/cxl and some commando soles for this MI weather. That's one thing about my Alden collection is that it's very shell/leather sole heavy so most are shelved right now :(

    Damn, 4-5 preorders?

    Meant to include my Blackbird Saddles here, but I guess that they are going with Color #8 now...

    Thanks, definitely. Haven't worn many leather soled Aldens recently unless completely dry, so putting the commando soles through its paces.

    Yeah, nothing crazy just a few non-shell things like a Reverse tobacco chamois WTB from Yenni, Black alpine grain captoe boot from Leffot, Snuff suede WTB from Epaulet, and the Context Color 8 tanker boot.

    Is anyone going in on the Leffot PTB? How is that crepe sole in inclement conditions?

    if you mean just wet, I have not had a problem with the Crepe.. Not getting the PTB though. One hell of a comfortable sole though..I have noticed that my heel wear area happens faster on the crepe than other heels.

    Frans Boone has some PTBs on crepe with brass eyeles in stock right now, in case you're interested.

    Cigar Indy Boots after their first coat of paste wax. Probably the best pair of Alden I have owned. I could see wearing this pair of boots for 20 years

    Great collection. I've never owned whiskey LWB. I may have to get on a list.

    Your Cigar Indy Boots are looking terrific and will look even better if you keep to that promise! :)

    The Whiskey LWB are a great makeup, definitely recommend adding it to your shoe fam.
