Not sure if you've considered a tanker, but the brown CXL that Leather Soul recently restocked is a great makeup that can be dressed with jeans or chinos very nicely. Plus it's on commando, so it meets that requirement. Take a look if you haven't already made your purchase. Here's a pic of mine with navy Rivets.

Oooh, thanks for bringing these to my attention. If they were natural cxl I would jump on them so quick. Might still...
I cancelled my AoC order. This photo of a user here's plaza lasted wingtip boot is what initially had me itching to get a pair, but I noticed the ones on AoC have a different design on the toe, and I'm not a fan of it.
I was originally only going to get one Alden shoe, but now I'm looking at getting a boot and some natural cxl longwings so I have three to rotate....ffff
