The color is fairly accurate in the photos as well, for anyone interested - a very nice caramel shade, not a light or yellow shade at all...

LoL on NAMOR. I think he said it was a girl he photographed in NYC. I think I remember seeing that a while back.

I feel secure after being fitted at Alden DC that I have the right size, it is the actual style --bal-- that I find marginally off-putting. But, it may be because I have always worn bluchers. Are there people that prefer balmorals over bluchers? If so, what is it about them that you like that you cannot get in a blucher?

I heart Balmorals! I prefer them to Blutchers. To me they are cleaner looking due to the closed nature of the shoe. I also typically wear my Alden's with suits.

HaHa. There is a soft spot in my heart for LWBs and LHSes in particular.

the matching color thread makes it different than the brown CXL, but again, if you have that then stay calm.

Good luck!

I forgot to add that I'm looking for The Bureau Belfast Kudu boots with commando soles. The similar models on their website have Vibram and plantation crepe soles.

DV, my mind is blown! I don't care what you say, you will always be your badass avatar in my mind.

And I agree with you - Sazon will always be the happiest dude in the world, perpetually in mid-laugh.

2. Alden of Carmel Color 8 Wingtips (worn during the work week under the same conditions)
3. Alden NYC black captoe boots (worn on cold days with both "dress wear" and denim).
4. Leffot color 8 tanker boots
5. Viberg service boots
6. Alden DC Cigar captoe boots (I wear these more in the spring and fall)

It's interesting as the Leffot Color 8 tankers and the cigar captoe boots are my favorite, but I reached for other pairs more.

Interesting to see how the J Gilbert Plaza captoes and tan wingtips will fit into this picture next fall/winter


This is an awesome boot collection A! I like the way its both varied in product in practical. Thanks for sharing

Traditionally, bluchers were not worn with suits, but that rule has gone by the wayside in recent years. Most people in this thread seem to prefer bluchers, but most people in the thread have fairly casual dress codes.

Have you posted your black CT bals here? And, are they model 9071?

No, mine are the perforated captoe bals, the 9016. I think I have posted them in here a few times; Bakes has posted photos as well, his are better
