    So as not to search through this entire super-long thread, does anyone have any pics or links to pics of Alden shell cordovan shoes/boots that have not been pampered, but beat up and "lived in"? Thanks in advance.

    * so am I unless exotics pop up, you have to be ready to pounce when the opportunity presents itself.

    click in the top right corner and you'll see all the pics posted in the thread in a grid format. surely there'll be some more well worn pairs in there

    Is it Cigar Thursday? Sure is. Snapped this on my way to a meeting off Hollywood this afternoon. BTW, tons of great pictures today gentlemen.

    Excellent duo, kwhitelaw. :cheers: Does Alden Madison Ave carry very many styles in store that are not on the website? Thanks.

    My experience is yes, the madison store rarely, if ever seems to update their website. I scored both of my exotics from them on a cold call. I believe the cigar indys I was able to obtain were gone in 48 hours.

    Yes, I've heard very good things about Shoe Healer and Richard. But their B&M store is up in Yorkshire, isn't it? Or do they have a store in London, also? Not sure I'm going to make it as far north as London on my way back, unless I can convince my sister/brother-in-law to take a trip up there. Thanks for the input.

    The Galway does look quite amazing and other people have raved about this boot as well. I'll try to see them in person in London. Thanks!

    Random question/remark:

    I found out that dark brown suede PTBs exist! I had only seen white, navy, snuff, and tan thus far, but apparently Harrison in AL has them, but I was able to track 'em down from the DC Alden store. Perfect for autumn and IMHO suitable for summer - basically year round shoes here in Texas!

    If you like the Harlech, this thread may be of interest.
    http://www.styleforum.net/t/362536/crockett-jones-modified-brown-cordovan-harlech-mto

    If you like the country boot style with blobby lasts that make the barrie seem sleek in comparison then Tricker's are for you. The AS country boots aren't bad but the country boot is Tricker's bread and butter. Tricker's also do sleeker boots like the Harlech but they're not usually standard production models. The Jermyn store might have some special make up though.

    I'd personally concentrate on C&J but that's because my closet is already full of Tricker's.

    Pricewise, don't forget to do whatever it is you have to do to be able to claim back VAT which is like 20%.
