 Thanks! Would you say the AE photos make this color look darker than they actually are? I wasn't much interested upon seeing the color there but your photos changed my mind.
 These jackets are meant to be short in the body. The body and sleeve length looks about right on you. However you may want to try the slim version. I'm tall and slim and the puffy look of the regular version of this jacket doesn't look good on me. The puffy look is part of the style of this jacket but if your frame doesn't match it isn't flattering. As an aside, the Alpha tall sizes are bullshit for actual tall people. The sleeves are only 1/2 inch longer than regular,...
 In your photos the "Saddle" color looks lighter than in those at AE. Would you say your pictures give an accurate impression of the color of these shoes?
 I have the Reissued version and I wouldn't call it thin by any stretch. It works well enough as a winter coat here in the northwest where it doesn't get that cold. I wrote about the Reissued upthread. I'm wondering how this new Slim Fit compares.
I noticed that Alpha are now selling a Slim Fit version of the MA-1. Anyone have one of these?
 Thanks for replying but this is straying from what I was after. I'll try to be more clear: The McTavish has a thick double leather sole. Would adding the V-Tread sole to this look or feel strange? It's an available option so I guess it's ok but I wondered if anyone here had an opinion on this.
I have a question regarding the McTavish wingtips...   Would adding the V-Tread sole be odd on this shoe considering it already has the double leather sole?
 I missed this post at first... thanks! I was wondering about this aspect and whether the likes of McAllisters or Strands would work casually.
 I am open to trying other bluchers and will look at those you've recommended. However, after trying the McAllisters I was blown away by how much better they fit me than the bluchers I've tried. Discovering the blog posts I linked above confirmed it wasn't my imagination that the balmoral style worked better for my feet.
 Thanks. I am hoping to get some opinions on which of those casual balmoral styles (and which colors) are best suited for wearing with chinos or jeans. I've tried various AE bluchers in narrow widths but they are looser on me than the balmorals I've tried (McAllister, Strandmok). For example, the McGregor is the same last as the McAllister yet doesn't fit as snugly.
