For those who have or have seen both the Alden 966 shortwing and the Carmina Fitzgerald Cognac Shell, are they too similar to each other? I have the Alden 966 and would like to add one more brown/dark brown shoe to my work wardrobe. Maybe I should go for the Rand Monkstrap in Cognac? That baby would have to be VERY comfortable for me to drop that kind of coin on a monkstrap... The double-monk would be neat but I am in a rather conservative work environment and I think that shoe looks best in the saddle shell.
I'd be special ordering a small size so both the upcharge and the wait will kill me.
Any advice is appreciated!
