    My list is based on your pictures from top to bottom, left to right. I like the boots and oxfords, dislike the monks, and am ambivalent about the loafers and derbies. But they're all nice. I was just being overly critical for comedic effect.

      I need to save the link to this thread for the next time someone accuses me of owning too many shoes (I think I've got 12 or 13 pairs, including athletic shoes). Actually I will count:

      1. Florsheim Haviland wingtips
      2. Black AE wingtips
      3. Brown AE Park Aves
      4. Brown Fratelli Rossetti wingtips
      5. Grey J&M suede bucks
      6. Brown Timberland suede mocs
      7. White Converse sneakers
      8. Brown Chippewa boots
      9. Trail shoes
      10. VFFs
      11. Chaco sandals
      12. Chaco flip flops
      13. Schnee's pac boots


      So, 13, only 8 of which are everyday shoes.

          I'm a sucker for chukkas and wingtips myself. Which is strange because I never liked wingtips until a few years ago.

          I'm close to 50 all told. Those 33 above plus Asolo hiking boots (lived in these 9 days this month in Maine), Orvis fly fishing boots, Bean boots, Solomon snow boots, NB trainers, Pantafola d'Oro canvas sneakers, Pantafola leather sneakers (my "dress" sneakers), Camper sneakers, Camper brown derbys (almost included them above), Adidas Sambas (coaching kids soccer), Keen water shoes, Tevas (really old), Soludos espadrilles, Adidas flip flops, and Havianas flip flops (always left in gym bag).

          EDIT: ... and I just sold three so I guess I was over 50.
          I think I have 15 shoes that I would say I wear regularly and then about 7-8 more pairs of athletic shoes that I haven't worn in a long time but can't bring myself to throw away because they could come in 'handy' someday.

          Fred - What is the model name for shoe #3 (2nd one in the left row)? I think that's my fave out of yours.

          So I want to get a pair of Rancourt beefroll or venetian loafers next year and I did order the Alden Indy's from JCrew when they had the 20% sale recently. Not sure if I'll keep them once I see them or maybe even I'll cancel them before then. They're not expected to ship for another 2 months so I have a while to go.

            It really is a beautiful shoe. Got it 50% off from Barneys last December I think.

              I wore the hell out of my Oak Streets this summer, much more than the Rancourts. My next semi-casual shoe will likely be something else from Oak St. I've kind of been lusting after the AS Moore in black, so that will likely be my next dress shoe purchase, and I sold off 3 pairs of black shoes this week to make room for 'em. Kinda bummed they never went on sale during the last AFPOS sale.

                I didn't know you've owned both. I've tried googling oak st vs rancourt but can't seem to find much. What are your thoughts on which is better?

                  I placed an order for the Oak St Beefrolls a few days ago while checking them out at Independence in Chicago. They were really beautiful shoes. The leather was excellent.

                  I've shopped the Rancourts (and own other Rancourt shoes) and I don't think you would be disappointed with either, but the Oak St seemed a bit nicer to me (justifying their higher price).

                      I have 53 pairs of shoes but only 26 are dress shoes or boots. The rest are skate shoes or casuals of some sort.

                        For me it sort of came down to fit. Like everyone recommends, I sized down in the OSB to a 9.5D and the Rancourts are 10D. The OSBs fit great and the Rancourts are a bit narrow. I probably should get a 10E in Rancourts in the future. It's a bit unfair comparing calf to suede but OSBs leather is really nice, thick, and almost a little like cordovan. I know Rancourt uses Horween too, so they are probably the same, but I can definitely say the Oak St leather is pretty incredible.

                          I just added the Indy boot. Couldn't resist posting my collection:



                          From top left to bottom right:

                          1. Alden x JCrew 405 Indy boot - new
                          2. Alden x UnionMade burnished tan perforated captoe boot- infrequently worn
                          3. Alden brown flex welt loafer- gets regularly worn in the summer
                          4. Alden burnished tan captoe - bought one year ago but never worn yet
                          5. Alden x JCrew brown calf long wings - gets regularly worn throughout the year
                          6. Alden black calf perforated captoe - gets worn with suits only.

                          Now, hopefully done adding more shoes!

                            Sounds like you need to wear those suckers more often! Good looking lineup.

                                Hey Vicious, you'll have to update this thread once your shell Aldens come in and you sell off all those you have on eBay. I know mine has changed a bunch since August. I've sold/selling 8 or 9 of those, and have had several adds too. I had forgotten about all of LCDRs Aldens. Dang!
