    You should see if you can use Leathersoul B.H. as the meet up place. It's only right.

    This rule is broken by many. You are not alone my friend.

    +1. I do this on a regular basis and will continue to do so.

    Agreed. It seems silly to care whether or not a shoe is a bal or a blucher with a suit. It's a very minor choice. I wear bluchers in formal situations constantly.

    In SF for the weekend visiting a friend before we drive back down to LA tomorrow.

    Stopped by Unionmade to check out the McLaren in person. Decided to hold off and check out Alden SF. I was really hoping to pick up the #8 captoe boot but it was far too red in natural lighting for my tastes. I suppose it was just that pair.

    I went back to Unionmade and pulled the trigger on the McLaren's. They just continue to grow on me!

    Will take proper photos tomorrow in the light. All I have are a few quick pics I snapped on my phone to send to the lady to see what she thought.

    P.S. I was told that these were the last 8.5 pair. I just checked online and that seems to be true. Sorry if anyone else was thinking about these in that size! [​IMG]

    I'm glad you grabbed the 8.5:) The last thing I need is another pair of longwings, and I was trying to resist those.

    They look great, man.

    I think Franz Boone has quickly become the seller with the most innovative and interesting alden designs

    Really like the chamois PTBs with the eyelets.
    Not that I can afford them or anything.

    ^ is that in LA? Seems like it could have a great turnout

    Also, SF/bay area would probably have a great turn out as well.

    Hi Does anyone know where I can get a pair of these Alden Wingtip Boots in Shell Cordovan online as shown in the picture? I searched the net and the closest are from shoemart.com but it isn't really in the colour depicted in the picture and they are out of stock anyway with the non speed hook version. That picture came from a brick and mortar shop in Hawaii but they do not sell shows online (you have to contact them to buy anything and they don't seem to have that design currently).

    I am located in Australia and its hard to find anything decent in shops here.

    You might want to try The Stronghold in Los Angeles. They had a similar makeup a few months ago...can't remember if theres had speed hooks or not.

    Their site won't be of any help so I would call: http://www.yelp.com/biz/the-stronghold-venice
