RTP: ..... For me, the color 8 shortwings will have to suffice. I've been on the fence for the wingtip boots as they are very similar to this shoe. Anyone have any thoughts??
For nearly every shell boot I own, I also own the corresponding shoe. If it's a style you like, go for it.
Thanks Seven. I have it queued up behind a couple of other models. (BB wingtip bals, straight tip blucher, and NST)post #61850 of 1224169/30/13 at 6:48pmpost #61851 of 1224169/30/13 at 6:49pmQuote:Originally Posted by mdubs
You will have to post how they turn out in reality. I have always really liked medallion cap toes and they look awesome in their pictures.
In terms of belt, I personally would get matching suede if possible. But that is just me, you probably could be able to pull off a leather belt though. I actually like the silver square buckles, so my preference is towards the AE belt. But if you like the Rancourt buckle better, jump on it. I know AE will switch the buckle for you if you want to get a different buckle. I can PM you a number to call to get it MTO (should be free if you refer to styleforum)...
Thanks for your comments Mike! Will certainly post fotos when they arrive. I'd appreciate the contact info … please PM me brother.Quote:
Lookin' good KWL! Love the socks. What pants are you wearing there? The lighting makes em look like waxed canvas.post #61852 of 1224169/30/13 at 6:55pmpost #61853 of 1224169/30/13 at 6:56pmQuote:Originally Posted by Sombrero
Hello gentleman, lovely boots all-around. Purchased my first pair
of Aldens from ShoeMart. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Really liking them so far but the below pic has been nagging at me.
You'll notice the right boot's leather is...I'm not sure on the correct
term, "wrinkling" or aging differently. Is this to be expected?
On the one hand, they're work boots...on the other, they're
$500+ work boots (from ShoeMart).

Congrats on some fine boots! What's the denim?post #61854 of 1224169/30/13 at 7:09pmpost #61855 of 1224169/30/13 at 7:10pmSales Alert - Brooke Brothers F&F:
I was able to get the 25% on Alden cordovan shoes (wingtips) when I ordered online . The discount won't show up until the final page before you submit your order. Combine with 6% chase cashback and no tax shipped to NJ and you got yourself a pair of Alden Cordovan's new for just over $450. Hope some of you gents see this before its too late.
Some say you can get 30% during the corporate event - so this may not be the best price for Alden's at BB, but its pretty good IMO.post #61856 of 1224169/30/13 at 7:11pmpost #61857 of 1224169/30/13 at 7:11pmpost #61858 of 1224169/30/13 at 7:12pmQuote:
honestly, they're I believe some low grade lands end canvas chinos.. I'm probably the least dressiest member of this thread, so you'll frequently catch me in some horrible pants and Aldenspost #61859 of 1224169/30/13 at 7:19pmpost #61860 of 1224169/30/13 at 7:30pm
