Personally, I don't like it at all.
Don't really like the full-strap in general, and I own 3 LHS and 2-3 Tassels (third pair is en route, might not keep em [666 from BB]), and the full strap is sort of a cross b/w the two (penny loafer on aberdeen)
Maybe if it were #8, cigar, ravello or whiskey, but I definitly don't like it in suede, especially black suede.
not sure I like black suede at all.
What would you wear them with?
That is a low price for Aldens, so I understand why they got your attention.
I'm probably the first guy in the 46905 posts that has tried to talk another out of buying a pair of Aldens.
Oh no...misunderstood. Would want them in tan, blue, or snuff, but NOT black suede. To me this is the closest Alden would get to a dress slipperpost #46878 of 1224163/26/13 at 7:38amQuote:
Tan, Blue or Snuff would be better.
Still not sure it would tickle my fancy though, but it doesn't have to in order for YOU to enjoy them. They make some slipper that is on the Aberdeen that is essentially a tassel loafer with no tassel or stitching that some people consider a formal slipper. Its not velvet, not sure if it needs to be. I am admittedly not very familiar with formal slippers or opera shoes or whatever they are called.post #46879 of 1224163/26/13 at 8:10ampost #46880 of 1224163/26/13 at 8:21ampost #46881 of 1224163/26/13 at 8:30amQuote:

I wear a 41.5 on the F last as well. I am a true-to-size 8.5 D. I just got on a preorder for a pair of Aberdeen lasted Aldens in a 8.5 D.post #46883 of 1224163/26/13 at 9:11amQuote:Originally Posted by Bakes11771

As Worn By This Gentleman (Warning: Spoiler!) (Click to show)
I wonder if Mike from Epaulet sold the gentleman his trousers.post #46884 of 1224163/26/13 at 10:18ampost #46885 of 1224163/26/13 at 10:23am
Never thought I'd care much for the Whiskey LWB, as i have the rest of the available shell rainbow in them (Ravello, Cigar, color 8, and black), but recently pics like this one ^^^ have made me regret not picking up a pair when I had the chance. Instead I have the wingtip bal on tremont in Whiskey. It will have to suffice...post #46886 of 1224163/26/13 at 11:00amQuote:Originally Posted by phormQuote:
Another vote for the Roy here. I agree that you can always find another pair of indy boots later.
i generally prefer toe stitching, but that roy boot looks great in cxl.post #46887 of 1224163/26/13 at 11:33ampost #46888 of 1224163/26/13 at 12:45pmQuote:
This would be great -
I think my favorite show is a LWB on the leydon, which is a fantastic profile. Grant would be really cool too.
Agree that Barrie seems more a "boot" last.post #46889 of 1224163/26/13 at 12:55pmQuote:Brooks Brothers Black Fleece Black made a pair of black Pebble Grain Longwings and Black Shell Longwings on the Grant last IIRC. I do not see them now though.
I have the Pebble Grains and I like them but I do not wear them much.post #46890 of 1224163/26/13 at 1:08pmQuote:
Yeah - the BBBF Pebble Grain LWBs are not available anymore - I checked with a bunch of SAs at both US locations and at other BB stores around the US.
