this is a beaut. tried it on recently.
although my wife would never let me spend that kind of money on a "seiko"
Good afternoon. I am a long time reader, first time poster. I am continually amazed by the assistance (and wit!) offered to new members of this forum. I have some posts I would like to make and intend on doing so at my earliest convenience - inclusive of pictures , but first I ask permission to impose upon you a question. I am trying to decide on a cordovan #8 short wing blucher and both Alden of Carmel and Leathersoul has one with AoC being on commando with dark edging and LS on I think double leather with antique edging. Props to Adam at AoC who has been unbelievably responsive. No doubt Will at LS will be as well given the time difference, he certainly has been great in the past! My intended purpose for the shoe is to be paired with trousers and an odd jacket in a work environment inclusive of business casual as well as traditional business dress. Do the folks on this forum generally believe that the commando sole is appropriate for this type of use? Additional information which may be useful is that I live in Florida and so the shoes will see a bit of rain, travel to main cities such as NY, Boston, Atlanta, DC, etc… and am in the banking profession, commercial currently not IB.
I appreciate the time you take to respond a new Alden fan! BTW, DANG what an expensive, but great hobby!
TSM 4060 does not have speedhooks either and is on leather sole. The superior makeup in my opinion.
