***The official Alden thread *** Share enthusiasm, reviews, sizing, advice, and photos. - Page 8054post #120797 of 12241612/6/15 at 7:22amI really wish more retailers would do that blucher with the hand stitched apron. I've seen pictures of them on Instagram in black/color 8 shell and they look amazing. It seems like that model on shows up in Asian dealers/markets but it's such a great looking shoe.post #120798 of 12241612/6/15 at 7:28ampost #120799 of 12241612/6/15 at 7:38ampost #120800 of 12241612/6/15 at 8:02amI'm going to consider this a PSA due to the desirability of the makeup. I have an 8.5D color 8 longwing w/antique edge from Bureau Belfast that I don't plan on keeping. Anyone interested in covering my cost, PM me by tomorrow. Otherwise, back they go. They are perfect and completely flawless.

I know it mostly comes down to personal taste but curious what people's opinions are on which style is a better looking and/or more versatile shoe for casual wear (jeans, chinos, cords)?
Not sure if it makes a difference but I'd be looking at Leffots makeup of these shoes.
I put in a preorder for the Navy Chromexcel LWBs, they've come in, and now I'm just trying to do due diligence to make sure I the Leffot suede LWBs aren't the ones I should be waiting for.
I've never owned Chromexcel shoes so any insights on good or bad peculiarities associated with the leather would also be appreciated.
Thanks for any advice and info!post #120809 of 12241612/6/15 at 12:28pmpost #120810 of 12241612/6/15 at 1:39pm
