I shop at their store. They are good guys. Check them out.

One last question please. I came across these Alden cordovan bluchers and for the life of me I cannot decide if it's No 8 burgundy or dark brown cordovan. Do the internal marking inside the Alden shoes give the official cordovan color?

Hope you won't mind helping me out.

Thanks once again!

 

Steve provided you with a lot of good information, I thought that I would chime in a few things though..

 

The Shortwing Blucher is slightly more formal of a makeup due to the Aberdeen Last (Sleeker versus Barrie), the Flat Welt, and the Single Leather Outsole. The Longwing Blucher is slightly more casual because its a heavier shoe.

 

With that said, they could essentially be worn under the same circumstances without repercussion.

 

Enjoy,

Mike

Nice pants too.

Thanks! I'm typically not a huge TB fan myself but the Indy seems to lend itself to this last, especially in shell.
