So looks like I have exactly a dozen if you don't count the several pairs of Jack Purcells I use for the most casual days.

    Feel free to make comments or suggestions about what might be missing or feel free to share yours.

    Thanks, in hindsight I should have used better lighting, but I was just cleaning and reorganizing my closet and decided to snap these!
    @LosRockets, I'll let you know once I check. I'm pretty sure they're 9.5C though (although I wear a 9.5D usually).

    My collection has changed since I started this thread but I do still have those rider chukkas. Rider puts out a great product.

    I had actually totally forgotten about this thread.

    This thread has been dead for a while, but I'm pretty curious about the size and variety of members' shoe collection still. So let's bring it back! This is where I am right now, and I believe I'm in need of paring in some areas and expansion in others.

    (Always top left to bottom right)



    1. Florsheim Veblen long wings 2. AE Lubbock monks 3. Lands End Archer bucks w/ laces via Bespoke Post 4. Velasca Saccent suede oxfords w/ Vibram studded rubber sole



    1. AE Strand in walnut 2. AE Fifth Ave in dark chili w/ Dainite sole 3. J&M made in Italy bluchers that I've had since high school 4. Loake Langdale w/ studded rubber sole



    1. JCP Stafford Deacon 2. Loake Kempton suede chukka w/ Dainite sole 3. Clarks Bushacre 4. J. Crew Kenton Pacer boots w/ Benjo's laces



    1. Woolrich Yankee (unlined) w/ Benjo's laces 2. Wolverine 1000 Mile Addison w/ Vibram rubber half sole and Benjo's laces 3. Red Wing 8880 moc toe w/ RW waxed laces 4. Red Wing Iron Ranger 8119

    1. Danner Light 2. Danner x Beckel Canvas Danner Light 3. Ugg Kaldwell (Yes, I know. But I've worn them around the world and and beaten the hell out of them and they're still fantastic) 4. Sebago Docksides in Horween leather 5. Superga Cotu Classic 6. Tretorn Nylite in linen 7. Espadrilles from a shop in Barcelona

    Not pictured are a few more utilitarian pairs, like Salomon backpacking boots, athletic shoes, etc.

    ^^^ nice collection.

    I have a recent pic of my Aldens, which I've moved to from AE.




    (Top Left to Bottom Right)

    1. Alden x Unionmade Byron Plain Toe in Regina Grain 2. Alden x J. Crew Plain Toe Boots in Camel Suede 3. Alden Unlined Dover in Brown CXL 4. Alden x The Bureau Belfast Color 8 LWB with Antique Edge 5. Alden x J. Crew Perforated Cap-Toe Blucher in Alpine Grain

    I also own AE Strands in Bourbon, Fifth Avenues in Dark Brown, and Park Avenues in Black. Aldens are much better constructed (as they should be considering the price premium) and the styling is much better IMO.

    Finally posting my collection

    Top L-->R: Alden x JCrew #8 PCT Boot, AE Fifth Street Black, AE Malvern Brogue Suede, AE Eagle County Grain GMTO (boots closeup) AExRL Slaton Snuff Suede, AE Macneil #8, RL Marlow (bluchers closeup)
    Bottom: AE Patriot Brown Calf, Alden Snuff Suede Flex Penny Loafer, Meermin Navy Suede Tassel, Florsheim Imperial #8 Tassel (loafers closeup), Carmina Choco Suede on Simpson, AE Park Ave Black Calf, Andrew Lock Brown Calf (bals closeup)

    Incoming: Carmina split toe blucher on Rain in Vegano Marron.

    Very happy w/ where the collection is at. Don't really have an urge to add anything, but the weakest part of the collection are definitely the balmorals since I don't have to get super dressy at work. I would appreciate a wingtip balmoral like the McAllister and a quarter brogue like the Strands but I'd prefer to buy something from a brand other than AE going forward because most of them aren't very comfortable to me. Apart from these additions, which I don't think I'll make for a few years unless there's a screaming deal, I'm going to try to only do 1:1 swaps.

    Most worn are probably the Patriots, Alden Loafers, Marlow, Macneil, and Malvern.

    Awesome collection! I love the fact that you have only two black shoes in a 14-shoe collection.

    I've been on a no-buy challenge since the end of November, but it comes to an end in 10 days time, and I'll be picking through AE's offerings to see what's left in bourbon in my size. I love the color and don't own a shoe in it. I do agree, from trying them on in the store, that Alden are much more comfortable, so after I pick up the bourbon, I'll start saving up for my first Alden.

    By the way, the Strand's a half-brogue, not a quarter-brogue. I'd say it should really be considered a three-quarter brogue, as I think a half-brogue should be a shoe with brogue detail on the toe cap and wings along the back but not a medallion. Or it could have a medallion plus brogue detail along the throat (similar to the AE Cornwallis. I believe this style is called an Adelaide). To my mind, the Strand has so much brogue detail that calling it a half brogue is just not going far enough.
