    This has been my mindset.

    I've also gone as far as making sure that each shell color is also on a different upper/pattern

    Jeez, double digits in the same shell color??? I don't even want to think about it! If I ever get to that stage, my wife will have to work till she's 80 to support that expenditure! [​IMG]

    Quick question. Where do your toes seem to fall within a pair of Alden 975's? I just received a pair and at first thought they seem a little large, but I am worried that if I go a half size smaller they will taper down where my toes are too quickly and be tight around the sides of my toes. Right now my big toe ends just a bit before the decoration begins on top of the shoe.

    you don't know the size, but you ordered shells? You should probably have gone in for a professional fitting. Are you into that whole "Yale" thing btw? [​IMG]

    IMO, wearing the Barrie LWB, the tip of your longest toe should be approximately 1.0-1.25 inches from the end of the shoe. A thumb width is another good rough measure. By decoration, I assume you mean broguing [​IMG]

    Beautiful! I bet you're going to get a comment from Sevenfoldtieguy -- he loves the Alden BB shells in color 8, as do I. They are more of a purplish/eggplant/Grimace from McDonald's color

    Who cares, so long as you're not the one working? [​IMG]

    BTW, this is my 100th post -- do I get some sort of promotion or title for this?
