    Very nice collection. Can you elaborate what wingtip this is on the bottom to the right of the moc, with natural edge finish (looks unworn).

    Hermitedge nailed it. It is the Atom. Incidentally, the LWB to the right of the Atom is a Cigar (from Alden of Carmel). That was the first Alden in my collection a few years ago and is still probably the pair I wear most often. It started out about the same color as the Atom and you can see it has faded quite a bit and developed a nice patina to it.

    Thats what I was guessing, not too many light edge finishes like that around. Nice pick up, enjoy!

    Is anyone else waiting on an NRO order from their last sale one month ago? I was told on Feb 14 that my shell tassel mocs were in production and would be completed by March 16. I received an e-mail yesterday that said my shoes have shipped. I have to say that this transaction has been pretty solid. I suppose I should wait until I actually have them in hand before I praise NRO for their improved customer service.[​IMG]

    I can't make promises for them but just call. They are easy to reach and deal with.

    To the poster who asked about Alden belts a few pages before.

    I was in Alden SF 2 months back.
    Saw a bunch of belts in the store.
    You might wanna give them a call.

    Question:

    When you guys say you guys brush alot after the cleaning and conditioning.
    How much is alot?
    5 mins non stop brushing?
    10 mins non stop brushing?
    30mins non stop brushing?
