I've posted on the AAAC forum as well, but really need all the help I can get. Â I'm looking for a lace-up wingtip, preferably in burgundy, and am considering the Alden shell cordovan bal, #974. Â However, it is a massive shoe with the double sole and all. Â Is it too big and clunky to look good and refined with a suit? Â (The 975 blucher is even larger it seems.) Â Should this shoe be worn only in a casual context? Â Or with bulky jackets like tweeds? Â Any thoughts on this would be really appreciated.
