Like many of you I've caught the Alden bug!
I already have a pair of Alden 979 (Tobacco LWB), and am considering the 968 as a dressier alternative. I'm primarily business casual, so this will be my dressiest pair of shoes on rare occasion being worn with a suit. My other option is the 975, but I feel two LWB in the rotation may be redundant.
Any opinions or alternatives?
The 975 is an Alden classic. If you like the split toe then the 2210 is also a great alternative.
