Your vey welcome shawnc. It was my pleasure. First, get that impeccable Uncle Mac, MrDV, Don L, repptie, sevenfold, patrick_b like shine, just to name a few of the usual suspects, then everything else is like eating ice cream.

On a separate note, do we all agree that this is not shell?

Our cat likes Alden, too.

Doesn't this defect change the fit?  The fact that it is on the vamp makes it a bit more obvious.

The tobacco LWB from J crew was my very first Alden.  Stevent is correct.  They were originally orangish, a little bit more so than the burnished tan, but the newer ones have a darker tan that looks to have a more matted finish.  I really like that look and wished I had it rather than the old one. I still enjoy this one (on the right)...

Not the best quality pic to show its color...

Are the dark brown also from JCrew? If so, which one do you like better, tobacco and dark brown? I actually ordered both with the recent 20% off coupon, intending to keep just one of them. I seem to like tobacco better, but your dark browns look stunning. 

Yes, both are J Crew and both were my first two pairs of Aldens.  TBH, I wear my dark brown more often because they are more versatile.  If I had the newer tobacco version that looks more dark-tan with a matted finish, I would wear those more often.

 

Tough decision, but can't lose.  Good luck my friend!
