    I actually used to agree with this - that whiskey was the ultimate LHS color. but I realized that I wear so many khaki/tan colors in the summer (when I wear the LHS the most) that having a bit more contrast was better for me. now I think ravello/cognac is the best LHS color. for me anyways

    Here's a photo from July but updated just now to reflect the deletions from my collection. #8 Chukkas from AoC and whiskey wingtips from Epaulet are currently on order...

    Today's footwear choice is the LSxSE "Conservation Boot" in the upper left corner.

    Is the 2nd from right, bottom row, a #8 LWB? How long have you had it?

    That's a kudu longwing from Leffot. It's about 10 months old. That would be one very old, waxy build-up having, #8!

    It doesn't look as waxy in real life as it does in that picture, I think it was a combination of the flash and the sunlight streaming in from the big window right there.

    Alden Madison impressed me with their selection, lwb and chukka in shell rainbow.
    They have pct boots in brown cxl with commando, very well fitted for today rainy day.
    Navy waxy and suede indy boots are coming in months... I didn't ask for other model since I'm more into boots.
    Also according to Aniello (alden madison) whiskey stock is depleting bad, similar to ravello

    I agree with this as well. My ravello lhs goes nicely with my charcoal, khaki and blue suits. With that said, I do have my eye out for the whiskey lhs as well.

    The Alden DC e-mail blast just went out. But instead of putting all 1000+ recipients in the BCC, they were in the To field and are all exposed. I called and told Che about it, so hopefully they will fix it next time. [Edit -- due to the large distribution, you might need to check your spam folder to find it.]

    Can someone forward me this? PM me for my email. You can delete everyone on the "to" field. I just want to see the deals. Thanks.

    I got it too. I'm nowhere near as observant as you though. I hadn't even noticed (but did go back to confirm and yep, all the emails are there). Oh well.

    The email was just to inform people on the list that they were on the list. It did not contain any information about any special make ups. The email was from [email protected], so I guess email them if you want to be put on the list.
