Yes I got them as seconds at TSM. I actually prefer the color 8. A work colleague has them and they look great. My hampton balmoral family is cigar straight tip, black straight tip and color 8 perf tip. I would buy the color 8 straight tip but I don't love the hampton last on my foot. I'm waiting around for someone to do them in Aberdeen.

Don't worry - the picture is 11D, so I didn't take your pair!

Quick question how do I post pics using my iPhone 6 thanks

Thanks for suggestion Dillardiv,

I called up jcrew and they gave me a really nice discount. not sure if it's because I never buy anything from jcrew or if the customer service is just that good; maybe a bit of both... either way.. I am loving jcrew today!

Just a follow up to some advice I asked for on whether to go with the Snuff LHS or the Tan a while back.  I took the advice of everyone here and got the snuff because it would be a bit more versatile and loved them when they came in.  The very next day I found the Tan LHS on Ebay in my size for  $220 NIB and I couldn't resist so I ended up with both, much to the dismay of my wife! Really happy with the fit and color.  Only problem is I am not sure I have a good belt to wear with the Tan...  Anyone have recommendations for a belt for the Tan?  I know the belt/shoe match is frowned upon here but I really do like to have both match if possible.  Can't seem to find a suede belt in the right shade... Tried the Epaulet and a couple others so if anyone has a recommendation even if it is not matching I would really appreciate it, I am open to anything!

Take the Metro North Train out of Grand Central to South Norwalk and you can have them in your hands in an hour. But shipped, yeah, you should have them no problem.

While I watch the board very regularly, I rarely post (the quiet type I suppose), but I have to remark that these are the best looking pair I have seen yet.  I have to get a pair of these for my very own!  (I've acquired five pairs of Aldens since joining the board.)

I prefer the Snuff over the Tan as I feel it is more versatile. I try and match my belts. Kathy has Tan Suede Alden Belts. Give her a call she wants to get rid of them and may give you a better deal.

Hah! Wow, thanks! I try and take good care of them for the community. I wish these were available. I plan to make another pair out of a Ravello LWB and sending them to B. Nelson for the Brassvello conversion. :-)

Thanks sir!

On the subject of belts - anyone have a good option for matching reverse chamois tobacco?  I think a similar color suede belt would be nice - but no like finding one!
