    Whiskey LWB came in today from Alden of Carmel, and I am quite happy. I need to get shoe trees though. I'm thinking either the Alden shoe trees or Ultra shoe trees listed on the HangerProject. Any suggestions? Would a size S or M be better for a 7.5 Barrie lasted shoe?

    Does anyone know how much the Alden price increase will be? I've been thinking of picking up a pair of Indys for some time now and just recently heard about the price increase.

    Cedar shoe trees are a good idea in any Alden. Not just for helping keep the shape- they also help draw moisture out of the leather in the interior of the shoe after wearing them all day. The way I understand it is that If shoes stay moist all the time without fully drying, the leather can eventually start to decompose somewhat and could have a shortened lifespan.

    Mac - put down the horsehair brush and go see a movie. Renee Zellweger says it to Tom Cruise in the movie Jerry Maguire.

    Hello guys,

    I bought a monkstrap cordovan in #8 used from eBay.

    It has some strange fields which make me worried.

    The creases aren't looking like cordovan, it looks cracked.

    I did the macmethod on the shoe but no shine comes out, on the other shoe(right one) the shine came out nicely.

    Rob,

    That is an awesome picture. Love the pants. I wish I could justify a pair.
