PSA: Need Supply has 25% off on at least some Aldens with code SUMMERTIME. http://needsupply.com/mens/summer-selects
It's funny how preferences change. I used to think that the split seem on the Aberdeen NST boots were too long, and then I finally wore my pair and fell in love. Extremely comfortable on my feet, too. Also saw a pair of WT boots on Aberdeen on AoC's Instagramaccount and they looked great.But you have a good point, I love Plaza-lasted boots too, don't think you can go wrong with any of those two lasts.
Good suggestion. I would add the Aberdeen last as another option to consider.
A pair of C&J Harlech Whiskey in the sun.
Looking great in your Whiskey chukkas, Mike! I need to find me a pair.
Another first = no more unworn Aldens in the closet. AldenxEpaulet Alt Wiens.
Would also suggest 9.5D to start with.Here's what I wear (have never tried the Van last, unfortunately):Barrie 9DPlaza 9.5DAberdeen 9.5DLeydon (suede chukkas) 9.5D but if I buy another pair I will probably go for 9.5EC&J 341 last UK8.5E
Speaking of black shell boots from Leffot, seems like there'll be a pre-order for the naval boot on Tuesday: https://leffot.com/shop/index.php/shoes/alden/40751-pre-order.html And the #8 Tanker boot: https://leffot.com/shop/index.php/shoes/alden/40349hc-pre-order.html
My plan is to take them to my cobbler and have them replace the original eyelets and hooks with brass ones.
#8 and brass look great together! First thing I'll do when I get my hands on my #8 Plaza wingtip boots is to brassify them.Great read, thanks for sharing.
