I have a wool Derek Rose robe and love it.
I don't have any Alden shell to compare even though I do have a pair of Allen Edmonds shell. I do have a couple of other pairs of Aldens however. For me, the 2 brands are similar in quality but the Aldens do tend to fit big so I need to size down.
I think you will find that both are going to have their fans as well as those that aren't big on them. From what I've seen, both put out a decent product (in general). If you like the looks of one better, that is the one you should choose.

Well, I guess the first thing to do is step back and talk about Style versus Fashion. Fashion is thrust upon us by designers and labels. It changes often because they want to keep selling new products. Fashion generally doesn't take into account different body types, work needs, or anything else other than the ever changing whims of the industry.
