If the AE Aberdeen has become your go-to casual LWB for wet or durable wear, I wouldn't recommend the kudu or chamois LWBs unless you were looking to replace the Aberdeen. All three seem to be similar as far as function.
I'm a huge longwing fan and have dabbled with different models. I have come to the conclusion that the Alden's barrie-lasted LWB is really all that I want. I have it in just about every available shell flavor but whiskey, as well as suede and calf versions. While the last is reputed to be "chunky," it really doesn't stand out like a sore thumb. I wear them casually and dress them up with jackets and ties from time to time, even with less formal suits.
I appreciate the lengthy response.
The LWB would be to replace the Aberdeen. As you've noted, AE lasts aren't for everyone. I've gotten rid of all my AEs except the Aberdeens. They seem to fit me best out of all the AEs I've owned but still not as good as the Barrie last. Granted I've only worn the Dovers for an extended period of time but those are perfect for my feet. I'll confirm that when these chukkas arrive tomorrow. That's the main reason I'm considering replacing them with the LWB.
The 2 pics you recommended both appear to be shell. Of non shell versions, would you recommend this Leffot makeup or is there others that you prefer more that you think would be more versatile. I should note that I really do like the mini lug sole on this Leffot makeup since it means I can wear them without fear in sun or rain.
