    Amazing non-Japanese shoes

    These might have been the shoes in the old joke: A guy is walking with his girl down a winter street in NYC when he steps in a puddle that wets him to mid-calf. "Damn! He says. There goes a thousand dollars!" The girl replies "Your shoes cost a thousand dollars?!?" And he says "That one did."

    Alden boot with crepe sole ?

    This one? https://www.newsobserver.com/news/business/article220943130.html How's the selection at Fairclough? I'm primarily looking for the tanker boot in CXL or possibly an Indy boot in CXL, styles that seem unlikely to be on the shelf at either of these stores.

    Shoe trees for loafers

    They changed shape to match the tree, including the curve on the bottom and the point in the toe.

I have plenty of experience also, you're not the only person to own leather shoes you know.

I ended up buying an adjustable pair like this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00WJIRLSU/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and even sanding the point off of...

    Besides sneakers, what shoes under a polo and dark jeans (or chinos)?

    I only own one pair of jeans and generally wear my chukkas or penny loafers with them. A polo versus a button up shirt makes some difference as I would generally forgo the chukkas for loafers or NSTs. I wear various boots or NSTs when wearing a flannel shirt or work wear and jeans. My only pair...
