I totally agree with this. The heavier build/ look of Alden's double sole Cordovan bluchers suit my build. I have a suit drop of 8 and need somthing solid on my feet to anchor my look.I also wear my shell shoes with denim or chinos 95% of the time. A blake constructed, calf bal would look out of place. And just wrong IMO.I've also found that most companies like Carmina have very few "roomy" lasts available at any given time. Not to mention a poor selection of width options.
