    I tried to stop, but must have been infected with the whining bug by my 6-year-old :) Bryan from LeatherSoul told me that the Plaza gives enough width if you're on the border between D and E widths, as I am. (I can comfortably wear an 8.5D or an 8E; The leffot naval boot was an 8.5E and wears exactly like my 9D grant captoe boot).
    Glad to represent the Alden Out of Control Club and appreciate hearing I'm not alone.
    It's fun mixing up the laces from time to time. I have to thank BeSpiffington for getting me back into that style. My rubber sole, square-toe-wearing friends don't get it.
    Thank you, Uncle!

    Hi Alcibiades,
    1. My fellow Alden-heads always remind me of this. I haven't done this yet, although it occurs to me regularly that certain pairs barely see the light of day (e.g., Indy Boots). Do you find it easy to sell on the forum? I always worry about being a new seller and having no credibility and also worry about getting scammed. Still a newb after all these months...
    2. Thank you. I wish going purple on black shell was my original idea. As Nietzsche noted, all of the good ideas have been thought of already.
    3. I've struggled with the PTB issue. Heretofore, I had thought that shoes needed to have some ornamentation. Now, I see how useful the ptb is, especially if I'm wearing a busy-ish outfit, such as one that includes a colorful madras shirt.
    4. You may want to check out AofC's selection. IIRC, there were some black shell boots on sale as overstocks...

    5. I've been meaning to ask: what type of oysters are those in your avatar?

    The oysters are likely Kumomotos or another West Coast variety from the Pacific Northwest (I like West Coast oysters)... The photo was taken at Aquagrill, my favorite NYC seafood restaurant / raw bar ever since I moved here

    Anybody? These posts get drowned by pics. I thought this was the Alden thread.

    Thanks for the funny (sad?; pathetic?) story. :D I don't think it stops there. :slayer: I have color 8 plaza boots in WT, plaintoe, and NST; and burgundy shell captoe boots from C&J (made for BB). Color 8 boots are splendid. And the Plaza is one of my favorites. Oh, and BTW, nice acquisitions pictured above. :nodding:

    I am not an E width, but your post makes a lot of sense to me.

    That's odd! I could have sworn you were a native New Yorker. Your accent sounds sounds so authentic.
