    Shoes that look better with age...

    Might be worth trying 11.5 if you don’t have wide feet or high instep.

    @Broark I have alden LHS on the van last - I went 10E. I also have Indy boots - trubalance 9.5E that fit very well. And v tips - Barrie 10D that fit pretty good. I think I might be about a 10E on the brannock. My whites are 10E and attractions are 10. yes the strap was snug on my LHS at first and sometimes can get a bit tight after a long day especially when it is hot. I have a high instep though. fuck Patrick cox though - I remember those terrible things too.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I joined in 2007 and posted about seeking out and buying samurai jeans in Tokyo after seeing the original contest thread evolving. I didn’t even get flamed…. ive been wearing Japanese repro denim since about 1998 when I got my first pair of Evisu in Tokyo but sufu introduced many new things to me.

    I have a pair of Toys McCoy surveyor that disintegrated the welt after only a couple of years. Pictures in this thread somewhere. I don’t know if yours are going the same way but I wouldn’t have much confidence in that welt lasting long. a rewelt and sole cost me about £200 on those.

    Check out the alden Madison site too. They have quite a good bunch of makeups listed. Im sure I saw some tan brown ones in the store on Wednesday. I’m quite partial to some of the saddle shoe make ups around now. Leffot have some. And love v-tips hence why I bought some.

    I’m with @MJF9 on the Alden suggestion. I’m obviously a fan of them. But also the wearability point. I sold the C&J shoes I wore for my wedding a few years ago after only wearing them for a handful of occasions after the wedding. They were beautiful, from the hand grade line but would have looked stupid with my usual day to day style. Alden are way more versatile for my money. I wouldn’t go with the clunky trickers - they are too country for a wedding, I’d say. Ive had several pairs of truckers and moved them all on. Leffott in NYC have some nice alden make-ups available now or pre-order. They do some cool ones there. Also check out brick and mortar and brogue for make ups.

    Those look nice enough but I’m not sure I’d go to viberg for a shoe like that. I feel like you could do better.

    More Alden! Barrie last V-tips that I picked up in New York as well as the indies. Got these ones used but hardly worn. I’ve wanted some of these for years so I’m hyped to have found a good deal.
