All the best and good luck!

Thanks RTP, good comments. I too am in the market for a suede LHS now that the weather is warming. May go with the Snuff as it's never that warm here and I'd like to wear it through the fall. I'll probably stick with my 986 size of 10D as they are pretty snug on me.

Looking great! A pair of snuff LWB is in my future. Hard to see the color on a lot of websites, but yours is fantastic.

The question is what happens when you have set the crease where it isn't supposed to be. Does it stay? Will there be other creases? I'm just curious.

But don't get me wrong, I love my Aldens WITH rolls and creases! That is actually why I bought a Chukka for my first shell.

However I prefer ice in the Whiskey rather than under it!

Which color are the JCrew LWB's? I am having a hard time finding pics of tobacco, I keep hearing the newer batches are a bit darker, which I wanted...

Anyone buy Alden's from European suppliers this week? I'd have to imagine there are some good deals right now with EUR / Dollar basically flat.

Interesting, I wear the exact same sizes on the LHS! 10C lined, 10D unlined. :-)

Unlined shell LHS's, in my experience, fit as if they are one width narrower than marked (9C feels like 9B). This appears to be consistent with the above.
