wtf is up with all these aldens recently???  I unsubscribed from the shoeporn thread so I wouldn't have to look at mac's old legs, and clunky aldens...  This is an Allen Edmonds appreciation thread. I don't mind the occasional alden vs AE post... but it's getting out of hand:redx:

yeah those are AE... wasn't referring to those...  Sorry about the whining, but there is nothing that bugs me more than "fill in the blank Aldens x argyles...  wear in good health, uncle/nephew"  Every time I see a pair of Aldens I have nightmares about Mac's old, age-spotted legs.

Agree.  Single sole works with flat welt.  And this example really looks good by the way.  I thought you were going to choose split reverse, that's why I made a comment that the double sole would make the proportion better.  Good luck.

lol, no worries.  I do find the uncle/nephew thing to be very creepy, to put it lightly.

haha...I see your point. I don't ever see a time where AE and Alden won't be compared/contrasted.

I've decided on all of the other details of my MTO outside of the sole/welt.  It's between a double butyl sole w/ split reverse, a single butyl sole w/ split reverse (think Neumok's), or a single butyl sole w/ flat welt.

+1!!!

Each has a place in my rotation. I appreciate them both for what they do well. I don't see it as one being definitively superior to the other. Each is different enough IMO to justify owning both.

Check my pics earlier in this thread. I have a pair of Niles in brown.

Anyone have any idea how Parks, Fifths, and Strands fit relative to the sizing guide?
