Gentlemen,

 

I am happy to add the Alden Black Shell Cordovan Perforated Tip Balmoral (9016) to my collection.

Great pickup, Mike. Those look really lovely. Would love to see that model in Ravello or Cigar.

The Lobb fit well so I'm keeping those. Nice and sleeker/tighter looking as well which is a nice contrast to the Kenwood


makewayhomer good post. Are those Kenwoods Unlined? How do they fit sizing wise vs Alden's .. TTS? Thanks...

thanks. Kenwood is unlined, and at 9D fit me super well. I can slip them on like...slippers yet I have no slippage while wearing. my next best fitting shoe are probably my Ultimate Indys at 8.5 D in Barrie. I'm basically 9D in most TTS shoes like the Kenwood

Looking good Chippy. I totally understand your Whiskey LHS inclinations. I share your struggle with them! :-)

These look amazing! One of my favorite pairs of Cap Toe boots. Enjoy, boot season is in full force!

Hopefully someday they will look as gorgeous as those Citi captoe bals that Mike posted above, but for now they're quite dark in anything other than direct sunlight.

Denim is the Gustin Oxblood2.

Is it wrong that I like the way these look more than my Grant-lasted pair? Every time I see the AoM version, I dig the casual last a lot. Enjoy wearing them... great boots!

I'm a huge fan of the Cigar SWB and you wear them well! I have an AE in a lighter (walnut) shade that I beat on pretty badly, but I'd love to fill in the hole in my shoe rotation where I don't own a dark shell LWB or SWB pattern.

Nice wingtip a my friend!

Wonderful makeup; if I wasn't so full on shoes at the moment I would have snagged these.

These are also my first pair on the Hampton last. I went TTS - 8.5D, and find they fit very similarly to the Aberdeen last. A little rounder in the toe. Hampton is an interesting shape.
