Mdubs,

Those are amazing. Great pair! Looking forward to how the creases develop in that pristine shell.

PTB is more "like" a whole cut but with strips where the eyelets are. 

Dover is made of multiple pieces of leather. 

Take note of the stitching on the sides.

Mdubs,

Is this the unlined Dover they had with waterlock soles?

Yes. I think they are Flexwelt (single oil infused sole) vice the Waterlock (double oil infused sole). But, they are most certainly unlined.

Seems like Alden is mostly using the Brown CXL on the Dover. Is there a Natural CXL done before? Would love to see one.

The Brown CXL Dover is now one of their standard shoes. Almost every retailer should have them in stock. Natty CXL would have to be a design done by a shop.

Natty CXL Dover should be a nice looking pair

Or you could contact Unionmade. They could probably do another run.

I presume this could only happen with dry leather which Horween should not be dry. So I had J Crew send me a second pair which arrived today, they appear to have a similar "issue." Am I crazy, is this a defect or will it go away? I have treated with Venetian Shoe Cream and Allen Edmonds Cleaner/Conditioner. 
Crackling toward top left hand corner

Thanks for taking your time, I appreciate this thread and your help!

This is what CXL looks like. No issues to worry about.

I work in tech and live in NYC. Very casual. Business casual is over dressy for work (think big tech company) Thoughts on these 3 as a good starting set for Alden:

LWB Color #8 w/ Antique Edges (I have these on preorder at Leffot)
#8 CT Boots (probably DC's Commando Speedhook makeup. ideally I'd get Cigar but that's the game)
Ravello LHS

Thoughts/ideas?

Get what you like.  That said, it is a good starting three (a versatile shoe, a versatile boot, a beautiful loafer).  The problem is that it can take you years to get the Ravello LHS.

Those are good styles. You might consider something in suede since your workplace is very casual.
