Having an internal debate about the 990. Everything about the shoe exudes class, it i well built, shows off the cordovan well, etc. But the shoe can look huge, especially in my e width
To me, the proportions of the unlined PTB look more balanced, especially with thinner wool pants. These PTB would look OK with chinos or heaver flannel or denim... But to me a similar chukka would look even better. So in the battle of the plain toe, it would seem that for me 990 would be behind the unlined and the chukka... Thoughts?
This pair looks great and telling from the rolls (or lack thereof) fits you very well. The unlined PTB might be Alden's sleekest sleek shoe and frankly I don't think it could possible be made on the same Barrie last above.
