Which of these would you gentlemen consider to be more versatile? 

enjoy your trip my man! i spent five weeks on Maui this past summer for my honey moon and the only time i wore anything other than flip flops was going for jogs in the morning. it'll be too hot for anything else. aloha

That shoe mart email is comical. 8-12 dollar increase so you better spend 702 dollars now instead of 710 later!

I'm on the shoe mart email list for Alden seconds. However I did not get the email you just referenced. Is there a separate email list I need to subscribe to in order to get all Alden related emails from them?

My Alden problem.  All acquired since Fall 2015.  I have a pair of suede chukkas on order.  Black shell long wings are latest addition (below Indy boot - special ordered - I'm an AA/B width.  Worth the wait.). Big shout out to Jim and the guys at Alden SF.

I thought the same thing. In other news today, the sky is falling.

I too can't believe Shoemart sent out an email to announce a 1.4% price increase.

My thoughts exactly. Well said.

Not at all wide.  Fit perfectly.

Just a casual observation--not saying they look too wide for your feet, but they don't look as proportionally sleek as say, mdubs b-width examples.  I'd love to pick up some black gunboats.
