I'm sure others will disagree, but IMHO #8 is the most versatile. With that said, you are going to be very happy with any of the above, as brown shoes go with everything except for black.

Yeah but who would want a color 8 from another maker? THE classic shoe is the Alden 975.

Speaking of Black...







Alden of Carmel - AF43
Black Shell Cordovan
TruBalance Last
Commando Sole...
...made for stompin....

cigar is really just a shinier brown so very versatile. #8 is like a shiny brownish burgundy. both are VERY versatile, a long with black

What brands?

Feb has been a shoe blowout month.

Whiskey PTBs from shoemart.


Ravello LWB with crepe sole from AOC.

Zippy, love the PTB. My second favorite Alden after the longwings. How do you like the crepe?
post #10719 of 122416
I used to hate the look of crepe but I've become a fan.
The look doesn't bother me now and it's very comfortable..

Does anyone have a pair of wtb in cognac calf (burnished tan)? I'd love to get a pair in ravello, but don't think I can swing that much. Leaning towards these: http://www.alden-of-carmel.com/index...p_Boot_198.htm in the cognac or the cxl ones from Leather Soul. I do have the cxl indy's.

I've been wearing hiking socks with my Indy's. Was thinking dress socks for the WTB's. What do most people wear with Alden boots - hiking socks or dress socks?

Does anyone know where to find this shoe? http://www.blackbirdballard.com/Alde...tip_17123.html It is a snuff suede shortwing with redbrick sole. Digging this and feeling the need to have it in a 9D

Try Leffot if you're in NYC.

I've got a pair of wingtip shoes in that cognac calf. I like that color a lot. It's sort of between whiskey and reavello. If you're looking for a wingtip boot in that general color, another option would be the Tricker's Stow in Acorn. They're a bit cheaper than the Alden if you buy from Pediwear or Shoe Healer.

I never wear hiking socks. Sometimes boot socks but usually dress socks.

Speaking of crepe, it was slippery in DC today, so I rocked these Indys and the crepe came in handy.
