Can you elaborate on "casual" and specify how you would wear them? Denim and chinos?

To get things back on track - here is a comparison of the Cigar Cap Toes and the recent LWB, the color is pretty consistent across the two lots















Where are those LWBs from?

Those are rather cool. I don't think that I could pull them off. Plus I think I would get them super dirty quick.

I hope they lighten up for you, the Ravello LWBs I got from DC in the summer was the same shade and has already lightened up a little.

Those are nice, but the white laces are rather contrast-y...

I really love tan suede. These shoes are awesome!

I doubt that I would wear $500-$750 shoes in a factory even if I did get them at a discount.

In an another Alden related story. I just got back two pairs from restoration in a round trip of 6 weeks INCLUDING shipping. Not bad!

Did you take any before and after pictures??? Curious to see how it turned out and the shoes that you had restored.

I much prefer the light antique over the dark with Ravello (and Cigar and Whiskey), but that is my personal preference.

Sir, I highly recommend either the Brown CXL Dover or the Tan Suede Dover. As a LWB buff hard to not mention the Natural CXL LWB.

Denim, maybe occasionally under some dress slacks...

I want to love the natty CXL LWB, but unsure how id pair it with an outfit.

Anyone have pics wearing them?

Or at least pics of them aged?

Exactly. If blue collar people didn't pay attention to detail, nothing would ever work, ever. Life would be meaningless.

I could be wrong, but pretty sure some of the most storied bespoke shirt makers in England and Italy aren't necessarily the most fashion forward people. Likely due to the public facing quotient of their profession: holed up in a shop all day, not in the spotlight like a public figure.

Less arguing, more pics.

PSA: I'm looking for a LWB in Ravello, size 8D.

I personally love my natural CXL PTB with denim, I think it's the perfect contrast with a pair of dark denim.

Nice. Is that a tapered leg?

I may hop on that Viberg derby MTO. Should age the same.

Do you find that you can wear the CXL shoe tighter than shell shoes?

Looking good! I have an order in with AoC for the brown alpine LWB, so it's great to see its big brother out in the wild. I've been digging the alpine grain recently.
