Weather in Toronto today broke cold records. It was -21 at 5am when I got up for work. It is now a balmy -18.

I am really contemplating a move to Australia!

I'm torn between chukka or longwing for my first foray into shell. Any opinions?

I'm guessing most will say longwing but I vote Chukka.

Chukka's show off shell so well.

You make me sick! J/K of course.

It's like -6 here today and funny enough that sorta feels warm. It's so cold the deer are eating my pine bushes out front.

I'd vote LWB. I love my chukkas but I think LWB is just the quintessential Alden. The correct answer is: BOTH.

SF answer is get both, but I'd go for the longwings for their versatility and classic look.

I know it doesn't answer your question, but regardless of material, get the style you like more.

I sold my Whiskey Chukka's just didn't fit my aesthetic. I would go with the LWB.

For me, it really depends on how you dress. Business casual, I'd go 975's. Casual, I'd go chukkas. Unlike most, I've never felt completely at-ease wearing 975's with denim. And out of all of my color 8's, nothing shows the beauty of Alden shell like my chukkas.

I agree with this.....however, whiskey is another story!
