For a "sleek" choice from Alden, check out the top row of boots on this page
from The Shoe Mart website. Much more of a chiseled toe than I'm used to seeing from Alden (at least based on this picture). It appears that these boots have been made exclusively for The Shoe Mart - probably not the best choice for conservative business attire, however. As an aside, I recently purchased a pair of shell cordovan "irregulars" from The Shoe Mart. As far as I know, this is the only retailer that deals in Alden "irregulars" (I guess there is some sort of minute defect with regard to the shoes I purchased, but I can't find it). Great service and a great price. Highly recommended.
