Get to know Mac...
























For those of you Non-Alden obsessed individuals, this gent may not be well known, but to those of us who are a fans of the brand or even just goggled for an image of Alden's, you've undoubtedly found images from Mac McArthur.  The guy even has a method for taking care of cordovan leather named after him, which is of course called the Mac Method.  Anyways, the Alden collector of sorts must easily have the largest single collection of anyone not working at Alden, and probably more than any of their salesmen. I couldn't even attempt to count the number of shoes posted on Ask Andy threads, but if anyone knows Mac or anything about him, I'd love to learn more.  But for now, just look at some beautiful shoes...

*Added a few more photos...

Evidently he is a really big fan of argyle socks as well.

What a sick collection of shoes.

Those last dark brown loafers are the best

Wingtips, 8th from the top, worn with the pink/purple/orange socks — those are incredible.
Great post.

Can you tell me which model is in picture 5? I am a huge fan of plain oxford toes, and those shoes look a bit like a leather version of J.Crew's MacAlister's.

Thanks.
