Alden Semi-Brogues on the Plaza last in color #8 from Leather Soul Beverly Hills. I tried these on last December but couldn't pull the trigger. Amazingly, they still had a pair in my size when I stopped by yesterday. Bryan wanted them out of the shop, and I wanted them on my feet. I almost forgot how good that rich eggplant color looks when new. I didn't realize how brown my old pair of 974 wingtips (on the Tremont last) had become until I laid them side-by-side.
Bals look much better with a cap-toe than with a wing-tip, in my opinion.
