Not the most versatile IMO - I have a pair of the boots from Blackbird that I use when I need a pair of black shoes but the weather is crappy (too often here in Chicago) but I'm finding that I don't wear black shoes/boots that often.

A slight exaggeration to make a point: if you have 20 pairs of Aldens they might fill a niche; if you have 2 pairs there are others I would get first.

I have the black wingtip boot, leydon last/commando pictures a few pages back. I think it goes wel with the usual suspects, but can't quite fit a worsted suit properly. Having said that, I have worn one with my navy interview suit and it didn't look too odd. But it's a bit chunky. tbh, I was contemplating the same boot, but will probably go with the Black indy instead due to fit.

Another great make-up by Tom and the LS crew. ( And normally I don't like NST shoes)

Came across these brogued chukkas from alden of carmel from a while ago, I think they would look awesome in whiskey shell, ravello shell, pretty much any kind of shell.

Thoughts? Tom...? Bueller...Anyone?

For those mornings when you can't decide between a LW boot and a suede chukka!

I am interested in these. http://www.theshoemart.com/cgi-bin/c...SHELL_CORDOVAN But they look a bit too plain, but they are the only ones in my size at this time.

Looks like it's trying too hard. Still, they could look great with the right (read: suitably funky) outfit.

Plain as they may be, they're almost a staple. (I say "almost" only because they're bluchers, not oxfords, but that shouldn't stop anyone.) They'll complement nearly any outfit, and with their open lacing, they'd go well with denim, methinks. - K

Thanks. Actually it was the Oxford I was interested in. Should be a bit sleeker.
