I know some of you will think this just plain wrong, but I wore these SW Commando Boots today with a charcoal suit and tie. I had a court appearance and then lunch with a group of clients/commercial bankers. I think it made for a great look.

I'm sorry Michael Haines.  I in no way meant to insinuate that you plotted deception.  I am 100% behind what you said and am very impressed with J Crew.  Enjoy those awesome pair of 975s...  Alden's quintessential American-made blucher (imho).

 

All the best to ya my friend...

I intend to snag the NSTs fairly soon!

I also get excited when I wear aldens I haven't worn for a while. Feels like awesome new shoes.

Thanks DV.  I need to balance my shell usage better.  You are correct though; when you wear a shoe that hasn't seen daylight in while, it's like wearing a new pair of shoes!

I too would recommend the 2210 before the 994. But certainly get both eventually. biggrin.gif

Thanks SevenFTG.  It's nice to have such friendly and supportive gurus such yourself and MrDV at hand.  Will post pics while I finally acquire the King NSTs.

Awesome boots, and I have no problem with your choice of attire.

The 2210 s are next up for myself as well. There aren't enough photos of the 2210 on the thread IMO.

Here are the pics that I promised. I just found out another defects. The shoe lace on the right shoe is not alighted correctly. BUT I only found out after I started trying them on at home and already have small signs of wearing. Now should I call alden SF to send it back or just keep it?
How do they look when on and laced? I can see in your top picture that the bluchering is off. Might not hurt to send SF a picture.

I've done this a few times with those exact boots. Worked great.

They look off.

I guess I'll send Alden SF a picture of it and see what they say about it. I was too excited to pop my feet in and not even thinking about it until later....Darn it.

I guess this is what happens when you are so happy to see your first Alden...ffffuuuu.gif

Wear in good health, they're beautiful, but they're just shoes so enjoy.

+1, wore my J Crew PCTs today. Mighty fine boot and will last forever, so don't worry about putting some miles on them!
