One of Alden's best
This may be blasphemy, but I prefer the NST pattern with more rounded / pointed toes, like Barrie and Aberdeen, as opposed to the Plaza, where the main moc toe looks too square to me. I think The Shoe Mart Aberdeen NST boots look a lot better than the Plaza version, and I prefer the Barrie Tankers over the Plaza (and Trubalance) versions. However, people love the Plaza, so carry on
I think I agreed with you until you said this. The plaza seems to me to be at its best on a boot. I am particularly infatuated with the plaza-lasted Indy in any shell color. That may be the one plaza lasted Alden that I will pursue vigorously.
