    Before this thread I thought my shoe collection was getting too big, but now I see many things that I want so the shoe collection must grow!

    So you're a big fan of bluchers, monks and loafers?

    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.

    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.

    C&J Clifford, from the handgrade line: http://www.crockettandjones.com/Prod...n#.UiAHIBuTh8F
    It really is a beautiful shoe. Got it 50% off from Barneys last December I think.
