Ravello LWB today, love this pair on double water lock soles from Alden DC. Wore these to work today and switch to the Tan suede LHS for this evening.

Where can I get a pair of black calf (or shell) captoe boots with exposed eyelets on commando sole?

post #114515 of 122416

so I am sure this has been asked a million times, but can anyone help me find a belt to match my whiskey lhs that I can wear with a suit? Especially one that I can get delivered next week.

 

Also, how does the plaza last compare to barrie? Do I need to size up 1/2 size?

You already asked and got an answer to your Barrie/plaza question a few months back.

In short, over the last 3 yrs I have lost around 85 lbs.

 

Initially, my foot shrank in length and girth from an 11EEE to a 10E...

 

Then, last year, as part of my weekly regimen, I started trail running about 10 miles a week.

 

My foot gained almost 2 more E's worth of MUSCLE girth.

 

I am now a solid 10.5E and/or 10EE.

 

In closing, the #8 WT boots on commando were Barrie 9.5E and too tight...so, I sold them off...

 

85 lbs huh? Quite the impressive accomplishment Watchman. And I thought the most impressive thing about you was your shoe collection and knowledge. Congrats!

So question for you gents what shoe or boot would you guys recommend next by Alden. I have gotten LWB shell color # 8. So far and seeing some awsome shoes you guys post figured to ask.

Very solid standard offering choices. Could also consider going MTO for something truly unique

+1

I'd add a natural shell LWB with natural edge and welt and a double leather sole.

I think the color 4 dub monk is the way to go here.

I personally went with the AE basic wide dress belt in burnished tan to match my Whiskry PTBs. Not exact match, but good enough. It will likely be a little lighter than your LHS depending on how they have aged. They can likely get it to you quickly as well.
