Too many to list. It's very easy to distinguish which pair is made by AE and which pair is made by Alden however... even if they are BB branded. If you are not familiar with them enough to do so, post the link here and someone would be able to tell whether they are Alden made.

Thanks for the help!

All three seem to be on the Barrie last, judging by look at the shape of the bottom. At least their Alden-branded counterparts are Barrie lasted.

Mr Clemson, where did you get these whiskey LWB? Or can someone tell me which retailer has a whiskey LWB list for me to sign up and wait for a year or two?....

Mr. Clemson - those SWB are insane. Definitely one of my favorite shoes I've seen on this thread!

Nearly sold out after less than a week? I'd say they are pretty hot.  Maybe not LS-ravello-shortwing-bluchers-hot, but hot nonetheless.

Has the LWB ever come with a commando sole?

That's what's holding me back; I hate leather soles.

Stop torturing yourself already….just go ahead accept that you need to to keep both. The colors are different enough that you could justify them both.

Alden of Carmel commonly carries the LWB and many other models with the commando sole.

I've come around on leather soles but like you I prefer commando. The only LWB with commando I've seen is from Alden of Carmel. I believe they only have 2 or 3 sizes available and their website doesn't mention any new supply coming in. Good luck.

Thanks! I'll have to order from them.

The 7.5D in Barrie barely fits so maybe E is better. Might have to use an insole so maybe 8D is right. Unionmade and Alden would have Barrie shoes for me to try.

About 2 years, though they got a few weeks at the window sill which seems to have done the trick.

The snuff PTBs look like the unlined PTB (Dover) on barrie.  I'd bet they are the same ones.  I'd also bet the description is wrong.  From the looks of it, they are partially lined around the heel but not the forefoot.  I might be wrong but I doubt it.

Alden of Carmel has them but not much stock left...

Holy Mary mother of God. Will you look at that.
First, your whiskey sw are awesome, keepers for sure.
It would be really difficult for me to let the "natural" shell lwb go. Keep or sell, it's nice to have options.
