I was going to guess Modified, but figured I might as well ask. Great Aldens and nice to know you've got the right width.

Thanks. Your input is very helpful in that I just found a dealer nearby that will order in the #8 LWB for me at $550. Hard to pass up that price.
Now, what should my 2nd pair of Alden's be? Cigar chukka or PTB? Something in Revello seeing as I have a pair of J Gilbert Cigar Indy's on pre order?

...didn't intend on getting any Aldens until maybe Christmas. But, already ordered some color 8 shell chukkas....
...and now eyeing shell LWBs...the question is, whiskey or cigar? man...
And here is my contribution to your decision process. Love the light edge trim on the Cigar LWBs.post #25761 of 1224163/27/12 at 5:39pmpost #25762 of 1224163/27/12 at 5:57pmpost #25763 of 1224163/27/12 at 5:58pmQuote:
I find Whiskey to be the least adaptable color shell. I've owned whiskey LWB, whiskey tankers, whiskey chukka, whisky LHS, etc., etc. The only whiskey in my current wardrobe is a pair of SWB from Tassels HK and I wear them infrequently.post #25764 of 1224163/27/12 at 6:11pmQuote:
Whiskey should look great with anything tan calf looks good in.
I find whiskey looks great with denim in casual outfits in any format (boot, LWB, etc). Whiskey also looks great with any light or bright chinos - Nantucket red, light blue, white...
For some reason, I think whiskey looks stranger in more formal outfits when the same "tan" calfskin shoe would work great. Not sure exactly why this is.post #25765 of 1224163/27/12 at 6:12pmpost #25766 of 1224163/27/12 at 6:15pm
These look awesome, though I think they are more on the ravello side of the whiskey-ravello continuum than the whiskey side. Alden seems to churn out a variety of shell colors in between "true" ravello and "true" whiskey
Edit - take that back, these have almost none of the red/orange you get in ravello. Pure butterscotch coloring. Awesome pair of whiskeypost #25767 of 1224163/27/12 at 6:19pmpost #25768 of 1224163/27/12 at 6:21pmpost #25769 of 1224163/27/12 at 6:43pmQuote:
