    This is pretty basic stuff so you may very well know this already but in the event you don't, for reference here are a couple of images to illustrate commodorewheeler's post above:

    Picture #1: Oxford or Balmoral

    Picture #2: Derby or Blucher

    Generally accepted that a bal is more formal than a blucher. I find that my high volume/high instep feet work much better with bluchers. Therefore, many of my shoes fall into that category.

    Thanks! The pictures of your black DBs pretty much sold me. I have to say, with black shoes being <20% of my collection, I do like this pair!

    Read your post about the faux cordovan... my condolences NAMOR

    Hey guys, quick question...

    I am somewhat interested in some Alden's with a Hampton last and being that I have only ever owned a Barrie I wonder if I really need to size up at all for the Hampton if my Barrie's always fit me a little loose, keep in mind that the Hampton's I'm looking at would be worn with no socks most of the time or with thin socks at the most. Anybody think I can pull 10.5D Hampton if I'm a 10.5D Barrie in this instance?

    Just e-mailed Tassels to inquire about their Whiskey Tanker... then I scrolled down and saw that they are already sold out :brick:

    I wish someone will do a re-order on this style! I really want a Whiskey NST!

    Is there a list somewhere of Alden sellers that offer custom store-runs? eg, Leffot, LSH, Frans Boone, The Bureau, Unionmade, etc.?

    I always thought that with a suit, only a lace up shoe was proper. I too work in NYC too and personally abhor the look of loafers with a suit. To me, they look like slippers.

    Be a big boy and get some proper shoes with laces to go with that Hermes tie, Mr. Trader.
