Good to be back RTP my friend!
Glad you like my shoes. My Cigar NSTs are from Alden SF. Got them in end 2011. Been wearing them about once or twice a week. These have never been polished only brush n wear.
No, the calf version of the tassel moc (663) is built on the same last as the shell cordovan version (563), Aberdeen.
There may be other slip-on Aldens built on other lasts like the Copley, van, etc... but the standard tassels are on Aberdeen.
i would like to ask you what your brannock size is? what size do you wear in straight tip bluchers (Aberdeen) & Barrie last?
i am a 10,5c in Brannock sizing
