You have enough Alden shops in the US to find what you're looking for.
My 2 cents.

They have rare shell colors on the Modified Last. No US retailer has this.

I purchased two pair from Charles, and he was excellent to deal with. But I knew my size, and sizing in shop is important with any shoe.

Yes, the overseas retailers can offer something we can't get in the US.  Odd as Alden is a US company.  You'd think they would honor a MTO.

IMO there is not much that Trickers does well. The quality may be good but they are not pretty.

+1 They look like clown shoes to me (which may be a plus, if you're a clown...)

I like the crease forming on the 'cap' of your right foot. You don't often see that on cap toes. looks less stuffy that way. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Thinking about replacing the crepe sole of my cigar PTBs on crepe from Winn Perry with a dainite sole. Thoughts?

I have some suede chukkas from Trickers that I purchased from STP.  They are very nice looking and comfortable.  Half of what Alden charges.  I like my Alden's too!  Some Trickers are very nice, same with Alden.

I was thinking the same when they wear out Alcibiades.

 

Look at Tom's for an example:

Thanks BC I just wear them and Mac Method them.  

 

I had the hooks removed in favor of eyelets and I think it makes the boot looks cleaner.

My order would be:

1. double leather JR
2. double leather flex
3. dainite (standard color)

Obviously if you are after something other than leather, the dainite is a great option.

Thing is I already have a cigar chukka on double leather sole. This PTB is sort of my "beater" / rainy weather cordovan shoe...

Thinking about adding a dainite sole in the standard color along with matched eyelets....

Alcibiades,

I realized I never replied to your "what to wear with whiskey monks" question.  I typically wear mine w/ jeans as well as lighter colored business casual fare (spring/summer tones).  I have also, on occasion, worn them with a light gray or medium blue suit, but never with dark tones.  I find that dark, formal wear with these makes the shoes "pop" too much, and I can rarely leave the house not thinking that my shoes are saying "hey, look at me!"
