    Too many pics to comment on but great shots all around this week gentlemen. So much gorgeous Massachusetts footwear out there.
    I've been refraining this week, getting some wear out of my Allen Edmonds shell. GASP !

    I just wanted to note that some of them are seconds for very obvious reasons. I visited the store back in 2011 and the salesman pulled out a pair of whiskey LHS that had a gigantic black splotch on the toe, roughly the size of a quarter. He also pulled out a pair of color 8 NSTs that looked flawless to me. It is very hit or miss so I think the best policy for shopping seconds is to be flexible and very patient. Best of luck!

    excellent choice sir, i think ptbs show shell beautifully. i have gone as far as putting 3 pairs of marcolianis in my virtual shopping cart, i haven't been brave enought to purchase. same with the color laces, i first saw them at the frans boone site. i am tempted to try an orange pair on cigar lwbs.
    i got started on aldens a couple of years ago, i only regret the shoes i didn't buy. if you see something rare in your size, buy it, if you don't love it, one of us will buy it here or on the bay.

    Does anyone else get frustrated with find finding pieces of a make up they like but not the whole thing. If Alden had a EG style MTO program I'd be dead broke. If anyone has ever seen a six eyelet chukka (I know it's not technically a chukka) in ravello with antique edge trim please let me know. I guess if I had everything I wanted I couldn't dream anymore but I'm okay with that.

    Does anyone know what cordovan boots Alden DC usually stocks? I am looking for either a Tanker/NST or a perforated cap toe in cigar shell.

    Uncle Mac, thank you. IMO those boots are king of all Aldens. So many questions as I am relatively new to the forum. When and where did you acquire those amazing boots? Have you ever posted a photo of your entire collection, perhaps NASA could allow the temporary use of a satellite to do so? Additionally is there a pair of Aldens that you don't have? If possible what is your #1 alden make up? Again thank you, you are an invaluable resource to all of us.
