    And horse bit loafers, right?

    Why do I know a stranger's shoe collection so well?

    Agreed. I do, however, find the modified last to be more comfortable than the barrie.

    These are my recent acquisition from Alden DC -- Alpine Grain LWB on Commando Sole. I love them and get lots of compliments.

    My weekly PSA:

    The Shoe Mart has a few pairs of Whiskey shell PTBs available, in sizes: 7, 8, 9.5, 10.5, 11, and 13.

    Get 'em while you can, this is a rare shoe!

    I have various models in Alden's color 8 and various models in AE's burgundy shell. If I had to pick one, it would be color 8 hands down. But I definitely like both, for different reasons. In many ways I have a hard time comparing them as they are so very different. Color 8 has more purple hues, is dressier IMO, and is shinier by any objective standard. AE's burgundy is more muted, has some brown hues, and, IMO, is more casual.

    I can't even remember the last time a retailer had whiskey PTBs in numerous sizes at one time. Mine, from TSM, in size 9D, are slated to arrive tomorrow. :D

    Yes - from this restock. Ordered on December 2 via website. I came upon the restock prior to Beeb's PSA.

    Yes. I ordered them 5 minutes before I posted my PSA. Why?
