Don't sell - PTBs are a must have for any alden fan! You'll regret and buy a new pair later

You skinny footed types. Pfffft.

Not skinny enough perhaps. I bought a pair of AE Wing tips a while back at Nordy Rack for ~50% off of the retail price, even sized .5 up to have the length fit properly. I thought the width would stretch out a bit, but no good. The width is too restricting so now it's just collecting dust in the closet. Perhaps I'll throw it on sale here when I get a decent amount of post counts.

And those Longwings are ordered! Estimate time of delivery is mid October, lol.

They're the J. Crew Alden LongWings in Tobacco. It said the estimate shipping time is around Mid October, although they did state that it can be earlier, later, or on time. I think they overestimate the time frame so customers won't get pissed off. Either way, I can wait. Too hot to be rocking them in the summer anyway.

srivats- What last is the Longwings? Looks a bit narrow to be TruBalance or Barrie, no?

^Gotcha. Great rotation BTW. I'm trying to slow down now, but I fear Aldens will become a habit.

^ Thank you ...

And here is some whiskey for the afternoon -- I am not a big fan of the lighter whiskey shade, but these shoes are darker and they are darkening to a beautiful shade of brown.

(aberdeen last captoe bals in whiskey shell -- my favourite shoe in my collection)
