    Man, this past half year... been buying so many damn pairs of Aldens. Thank you LS for fueling the rage [​IMG]

    I don't put my shoes away because I like staring at them haha - that Plaza last is just incredible.

    I have one all ready to go, but can't post while at work, haha.
    You can edit it in later! Ten thousand posts and still so many last questions. Maybe it's a good time to put up a list of your Aldens so we can see what the most popular models are. Does Mac have a spreadsheet that he uses to rotate through his collection and decide when to polish? I have three with a few coming: Alden-JCrew longwing, dark brown (the gateway shoe) Alden longwing, #8 Alden unlined suede chukka, tan On order: Alden-Leffot longwing, Ravello (spring) Alden-LSH chukka, chromexcel (summer) With three LW and 2 chukkas I think there is room for some others. Probably PTB to start.

    why did I have to look at this thread...now that I know Leather Sole is 15 minutes away from me in Bev Hills....I thought my shopping was done for this month.Digging the Ultimate Jumper Boot
    man I've been on a clothing hiatus for a good year now...maybe longer. I manage not to buy a single piece of clothing/shoes. The jumper is sparking my interests again. [​IMG]

    Wanted to make my first post on this thread. I just ordered a pair of Alden Cigar Long Wings and a pair of Ravello Wing Tip Boots. Both will be here on Thursday. These are my first Alden's and my first Cordovan shoes. Can't wait to get them.

    Hey Fellas,

    Any of you had any experience with matching one of Tanner Goods belts with brown Chromexcel? I just scooped a pair of the new Jumpers and was checkin' out the Mahogany as opposed to the Havana belt. Mahogany looks like the color to go with but the variations in photos make me question it all.

    Nice selection of cordovan. Need a name for covering all four of the major colors (8/Ravello/Cigar/Whiskey). I guess #4 is super-rare.

    Quick question: For anyone who has the LeatherSoul Ultimate Jumpers in #8, do you think those boots are sufficiently dressy that they can be worn with suits or are they primarily a casual boot for jeans? Thinking of grabbing a pair before the price increase. Much appreciated.

    Edit: After looking at the pictures from 2-3 pages back, I think it can work with a suit.
