    +1 on the buckle trig. I prefer the square steel buckle on my #4 belt.

    I'd think in manhattan you'd see the 2161 black shell straight tip balmoral more often. But what do I know, I live in fly-over land.

    Was at nettleton while visiting the family in pittsburgh and saw 2 interesting alden make ups. A barrie last brown chrome excel chukka on leather soles, very rugged looking, and a barrie last dark brown calf (with slight reddish undertones) LWB on waterlock soles.

    Yeah, Park Avenues and Strands pretty often walking around. At work, it's clogs and Danskos dominate.

    Sazon, I assume I haven't crossed paths with you yet. :D

    I saw my first pair of egs in the wild last week sans the ones that were on my feet. The gentleman was shocked that I recognized them. I have only seen aldens a few times in the wild down here its crocks and boat shoes.

    You will want to be careful about divulging the purchase price to certain relatives. They may have you committed. :D

    both ebay and sellers like sniping since the items get bid up to a higher amount.
