    Truly a work of art. Magnificent. A generation ago (maybe a touch more) that shoe, and others like it, were ubiquitous in any shopping mall, or decent men's store in the States. I respect Alden and AE for hanging tough.

    Well good news UPS just showed up.

    The Green Shell Derbies from the outlet and I have no idea why they were outlet (maybe this little mark on the welt but need to look so close to even see it) really just perfect!!!

    Already on my feet and going out for the day.

    Whoa. I have a new need in my life.

    Were these a single MTO? How do I get my hands on a pair?

    It was a GMTO arranged by the GWelt guys over on Reddit. I happened to be in Ron’s store the day they were putting the order in. Ron mentioned it, I asked if I could get in on it, and he said sure.

    What was great about it was I didn’t have to wait forever for them. Put the order in in mid April, they were ready 2 weeks ago, but I wanted to pick up myself and just now getting around to it.

    I’m sure you could arrange for a single MTO, check with Ron and see if he’s got any more of the Horween Natural left. I’m not 100% sure, but he may have some. He’s making me a belt out of some.
