    Posting items for sale in the discussion forums is usually discouraged.

    (I can only speak for myself, and this is not a shot at you personally MH, just a response to your post) Personally, I don't care if David Beckham wears Aldens or Leonardo DiCaprio wears black PTB.

    In my eyes, it does not make Alden any cooler, or make me want them any more.

    I think it is silly when people idolize celebrities. Beckham is good at soccer, DiCaprio is good at acting, but they are otherwise just normal people with lots of money. Just because they wear something doesn't make it cool, at least not to me. Just because I respect them for their professional achievements does not mean I need to imitate them.

    It's a beautiful shoe, and I've got a tan pair in the mail, but man -- I'll really think twice about anything that guy touches.

    I understand how you feel but in defence of MH i gotta say that posting pictures of celebrities of every sort be it fashion ,sports, royalty, media or just well dressed gents on the street then observing , analyzing and commenting on what they are wearing is kind of the core of what styleforum is all about . That may not be the raison d'etre of this thread but it certainly is for a large part of the community as a whole . So agree with it or not it does matter what David Beckham Leonardo di Caprio or the peacocks at Pitti Uomo wear otherwise they would be of little or no significance at all in this forum .

    they're very choice indeed. i've been considering them for like a month. i just can't convince myself enough to buy them at full price.

    I wore my snuff suede Leydon chukkas yesterday for the second time in several days. IMHO the buttery softness, lightness and ease of walking in these makes them worth the $. Everyone just buy them already--whether you appreciate David Beckham or think he's a tool.
