This was my first “expensive” shoe purchase back in August of 2010; the Alden Indy boots. Little did I know they were merely mid range.
Prices of Aldens also shot up quite sharply over the last few years. I think there are better alternatives from brands in England at this point. With that said, I have sold most of my non shell cordovan Aldens.
Anonymous asked: What kind of shorts are you wearing in your "Summer might be official over, but the warm weather..." post from early last month? Thanks in advance!
They’re Barneys NewYork’s house brand.
Still very in love with black footwear. Taking these Allen Edmonds Hanover wholecuts out for their first wear.
An interesting read on Hermes from the September 2014 issue of Forbes magazine, including neat information such as how the Birkin got its name and the firm’s own gator farms to make the articles.
Two more pairs arrived today including my first pair of Loakes. The colors and design of the box are really nice. At its pricepoint, the Hyde boot is a great find. The other pair is a Jodhpur boot by Alfred Sargent for Brooks Brothers.
Thom and Yohji. Opposite sides of the spectrum, but as equally awesome.
