    Wow, first Jimmy Carter and the prime and now the proper execution of Perf Cap Toe Oxfords.... [​IMG]

    This makes for interesting argumentation and debate!

    In addition, the perforations may also lend itself to the more informal khaki pants.
    To each his own, my friends, whether it be a particular style of denim or shoe execution.

    I believe Alden wear was trying to say the essentially the same thing.

    Congrats, welcome to the thread, and it's good to know B Nelson is the place to go when Alden will not replace their soles with different materials. Post some pics if you can...

    I think that if someone with my overall appearance (age, haircut, build, ect.) and presence were to wear the 9015 with khakis they would look out of place, while someone with your overall presence could get away with it.

    Just as I said months ago that not just anyone can pull off the Tassel look, I hold that not just anyone can pull of the 9015 with khakis look.

    While I feel that I can pull off the Tassel look, I do not feel that I am able to pull off the balmoral with khaki look. You, Uncle, pull off both looks quite successfully.

    Even though I think that 9015s and khakis would look awkward on me, I do not think that the same combination would look awkward on certain personalities.

    Most men have the ability to grow a mustache, however, not every man looks good with a mustache.

    The Monopoly Man's monocle serves him well, however, I would look silly using one.


    I hope that I have communicated my feelings effectively with the use of these silly analogies.

    What is the general opinion regarding shoe cream/polish for alden #8 - coloured polish or neutral?

    No polish is the recommendation. Do a Search for the MAC Method which is the recommended practice

    Seriously, that has got to be the most insane price I have ever seen for a brand new Ravello LWB. The seller clearly didn't know what they had
