I jumped on the Alden on Madison #8 tanker boot order, get them next week. My thoughts were the welt on this one should be a little more waterproof, which when matched with commando sole makes it pretty versatile. In addition I already have the NST dress boot on Aberdeen from TSM to fill the dressy boot category.
I've seen some awesome Alden's this week, keep it rolling! It got down to mid teens last night in Dallas.
