Once it arrives, I'll then have the lace-up mocc in color #8, snuff suede, the tobacco, and natural CXL (the CXL from Rancourt though). I know folks love the LHS but I've never been much of a loafer guy. However, the lace-up version is quickly becoming my go-to shoe for all occasions. I wish I could find it in whiskey or cigar...

I thought my commando-style shortwings were the most comfortable shoes ever made.........then I picked up a pair of longwings from jcrew on crepe. Easily my most comfortable shoe. I hear all the noise about how they will look once the sole wears down but I'll worry about that when the time comes. For now, simply enjoy what will likely become one of your most comfortable shoes. I was seriously considering the very same shoe. Nice pickup.

if by some miracle it were available, I'd grab something in cigar, be it a chukka, PTB, or LWB. very easy color to match pants/jeans to.. problem is, it's near existent at the moment. might be able to call around to all the alden flagship stores and get lucky if you're an oddball size, or hope on a preorder

 

 

if you want something more present time, could grab natural cxl offerings from leffot (preorder it seems on the LWB) or possibly shoemart.

 

 

 

 

jcrew brown LWB is another good choice. great with jeans/chinos and not priced tremendously like shell

 

 

hmm or suede. could do snuff PTB on flex sole. sherman brothers, mouldedshoe, epaulet

Amazing reply! Thanks bro! How about whiskey? You think that would be good?

whiskey is nice, but I only own a single pair in that shade so I've never wore them casually. someone else can hopefully chime in, even better with a pic or two, of some whiskey in a more casual setting. I could see a PTB or LWB with some denim, but you'll be hard pressed to find any stock, same as ravello and cigar right now. skyvalet shows whiskey PTB in 12 (barrie assume), but I've never bought from them so not sure how accurate their online inventory is

 

if you're 11.5-12 in barrie, fransboone has whiskey LWB currently. exchange rate hurts tho if you're in the states..

I wear my whiskey LWB casually all the time with denim. I think they look phenomenal. I don't know if I have any pics, but I'll check tomorrow. Or maybe I'll just wear them tomorrow and take some!

Many on this thread, myself included, will tell you that you would be crazy not to buy something in Color 8, specifically the LWB (Model 975) or PTB (Model 990, or else the Brooks Bros version), given your needs and existing wardrobe.  I certainly like all the suggestions you have gotten thus far, but I'm not alone when I say that Color 8 is King.

For me Whiskey is inherently casual.  My one pair of whiskey is a wingtip bal which I suppose makes it more dressy.  However, I have never worn these with a suit with the exception of seersucker.
