Completely agree ATL. Whiskey is the exception.

I like alden longwings with jeans.
I'm sure it depends on your personal preference and work environment, for me, jeans and alden longwings go like peas and carrots.

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 wouldn't know how to handle the cold. I pretend I would like a month with a few 50 degree days only so I could wear my thicker jackets and Shetland sweaters.

My vote is the longwing. I like the look of the shell chukka in pictures but not on my feet. Alden generally (always?) uses the Barrie last for their shell chukkas, and although I am usually a fan of the Barrie, I just don't think it works for the chukka.

I think my biggest concern with the chukkas is fit given only two eyelets

I love my Ravello LWBs with antique edge and jeans. Fits my style to a T.

Even when your temps are similar to ours, it's nicer there due to Houston being so much more humid.

 

With it being 'cold' here today I wore the 4060's for one last time. I forgot how nice these things are and am now reassessing whether I really want to sell them. I'm now leaning 70/30 towards keeping them.

chukkas look good to me, but I hated the pinching feel from the quarter seams on the side. longwings are classic. I would go with those.

I think ravello looks great with jeans....my #8s have the dark edge trim which I don't like with jeans on me.....looks great when worn by others on the forum though....especially with the lighter edge

I preordered the Alden x Leffot natural cxl Indy boots a few weeks ago. It is my first (hopefully not last) preorder for Aldens and I have seen on this thread the long wait times for some models. I know there is a tremendous amount of work that goes into them and don't expect it to be too quick but I was wondering if anyone else who has felt with preorders for a particular pair of Indys from Leffot or not, if the 14-20 week wait time is a pretty accurate estimate? Thanks!

The PTB 990. biggrin.gif


I would have thought you'd say BB PTB, but I suppose they are no longer in stock for the foreseeable future.

 

If anyone is interested, there is  black shell LWB from BBBF (Brooks Brothers Black Fleece) on the Grant last, BNIB in size 9.5D on ebay.  I would have snagged it had it been my size.

 

@dieselrocket, my vote is for the LWB in any of the shell colors.  Chukkas are nice but not nearly as fabulous as the LWB, imho.

Ive had a couple pre orders through Leffot and their estimates have been pretty accurate. Usually on the long end of the estimate.
