                Great look, Shomas. Which Aldens are those? And is that just color no. 8?

                  Thanks! They're Halleck boots from Unionmade - and yes, they're color 8.

                    I wonder with the people that think American shoes are too clunky and like the sleek Euro shoes if they only have either shoes in their closet.

                    Shomas, you've turned into a halfway house for Aldens this past year, do you feel the need for the sleeker Euros?

                    I only have the "clunkier" Americans and the sleekest shoes I have are Park Aves.

                    EDIT: I take that back. I ebayed a brown pair of some Italian cap toes. Definitely pointier and sleeker and I only feel comfortable wearing it with a nice suit to a wedding.

                      Yeah, it's gotten a little out of hand with the Aldens. I need to stop looking at the Styleforum Alden thread. I don't really have more European-shaped shoes. I have a couple of pairs of Grensons, but they actually aren't all that "sleek" and I actually don't wear them much anyway. Dating back to when I wore Doc Martens in high school, I've always preferred more substantial footwear shapes. It's pretty consistent, actually, now that I think about it.

                        That thread can be a very dangerous thing...but damn those are some good looking shoes!

                              What are the Luxire shirts like? I follow a menswear blogger who seems to swear by them so I'm curious.

                                Once your fit is nailed down, they're great. You can make a shirt with exactly the details you want, so there's no "if only the sleeves were a little longer" or "I wish the collar was a bit bigger". So there is obviously a lot up to you to make it a great shirt. I have pretty much everything perfect on my third shirt, which is that white one and now my favorite dress shirt. Construction is excellent, and there is a wide range of prices and quality for fabrics, I've spent an average of about 70 bucks. The first two, one dress shirt, one a shorter casual oxford cloth, are plenty wearable, just not "perfect". I had to figure out my collar construction preferences, and realized that I had too much taper in the waist. As lower priced fabrics the sky blue oxford and lustrous fine white are excellent.
