    Indys look out of place paired with any pants with a sharp crease... odd trousers, suit trousers, etc.

    Cigar Indys with dark raw denim and a sport coat work excellently.

    Those are on the plaza. Soft square toe'd. Grant is a much rounder toe....

    And I just received my first Vass, priced near Alden. Oh, boy.

    That's fair enough. Perhaps I should've said that I couldn't see myself wearing them with wool pants and a sport coat. Chinos or denim and a sport coat I think would be fine, just on the casual side of course.

    OK I had to share this picture. It was on Leffot's Facebook page. According to the owner of Leffot, this collection includes 72 pairs of shell. I am just dying to know if this is really McArthur. McArthur, can you please chime in? Is this you, one of your rivals, or one of your accomplices???[​IMG]

    Agreed. They need some Mac treatment. However, Mac is the only member that I know who has posted pictures with such a vast amount of different Aldens. If this isn't Mac's, he and Mac must be the number one or two collectors in the world. I just can't believe how used a lot of them look. This guy has to have been wearing some of these shoes for 20 years. If you were to do a full rotation, you would only get through this collection 5x a year. This owner must have started a LONG time ago.

    And I'd really like to know when Alden offered a Cordovan-leopard combo. [​IMG]

    Alot of us can't either. It's a deal breaker for me everytime.


    But it has its fans. :nodding:

    I know it was discussed previously but I'd really like to see if "we" can get an order together for a six eyelet chukka.
