Are you referring to where the laces part of the quarter is sown to the vamp?I'm thinking about them, but I like my #8 and cigar LWBs so much I'll probably hold out for a whiskey or ravello LWB. I suppose it may be a long wait.......
Agree with above, definitely too casual for a suit. I'd wear them with a sport coat, navy, herringbone, tweed, with and without a tie.
Are these some sort of special make up? They are part short wing and part long wing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ALDEN-MENS-WING-TIP-BLUCHER-SHOES-3131-TOBACCO-9-5-B-D-533-/360728869799?pt=US_Men_s_Shoes&hash=item53fd1dbba7

I think, by the time I paid it off, it was down to 13%, which meant I was able to pay it off early as less and less of the payment went to interest.
If I recall correctly, didn't it get as high as 19 3/4?
I am considering purchasing a pair of Daltons for the winter, likely walnut, maybe bourbon. I wear a suit every day. I am wondering how well they would go with a suit. Though I'd just like to have a pair, I would also like to get some regular wear out of them. Any thoughts?
I bought them in both black and dark brown last year when they were talking about discontinuing them. I ended up returning the brown because I couldn't get them to stop squeaking. I really liked the color, but wasn't sure I'd like wearing a boot so I didn't have them replaced.
