Would the Alden last experts confirm my hunch that these are Aberdeen? I'm starting there because most tassels are on that last, but I know JCrew favors Barrie. 

In a related note, where might one find dark brown suede tassels?

It is stock model 666 and is available for order (and perhaps in stock) at any of the Alden shops, plus TSM, etc.

Does anyone know where I can find a dark suede indy boot with either a cork or a commando sole? Any retailers offering this makeup currently?

A reverse Tobacco Chamois at Unionmade.(Great Shop)

A Chocolate Suede at North River Outfitters (I have never bought anything from them but I hear mixed reviews.)

Snuff Suede on red brick at Alden Madison. (Have had many favorable experiences with them as well.)

 

All 3 of those are on cork. Not sure of anything offhand in a dark suede on commando.

I think Sazon has a chocolate suede on commando. Could be wrong.

any of you own the Alden+Context Roy boot? got any pics?

If you're looking for photos of them worn-in, I see there's a pair listed here...

Not my listing.

Thank you very much.

The unionmade makeups are pretty nice .. they have the dark suede I want but the boot has brass eyelets frown.gif After seeing their chamois boot and the NRO suede indy with cork sole + lighter welt, I am mostly now inclined to just go with commando sole )or get a leather sole and put topy on).

That light welt looks good on ligher bots but look out of place here:




Ah, the search continues.

Seven, thank you for pointing this out. I'm not sure how I missed this. Perhaps it's partially due to not seeing many dark brown suede tassels on this thread. :embar:

 

I'm interested in hearing opinions regarding the relative versatility of snuff vs dark brown suedes. I realize that the versatility of snuff suede has been thoroughly discussed. Along these lines, I initially thought about purchasing the snuff tassels debuting on JC today. However, when I think about the specifics of my own collection, I already have quite a few snuff models (including a wt boot, a longwing, the upl's, and a chukka). Accordingly, it seems to make sense to branch out into other suede colors. The dark brown suede jumps out as a solid alternative, especially given its usefulness when paired with white jeans, stone colored chinos etc. Is there an overwhelming sartorial reason that snuff tassels should trump the dark brown suede? In other words, is there a reason I may have overlooked that dark brown suede tassels would look disastrous in person? Also, am I being silly to outright bypass tan suede tassels? (The shoes in question would likely be for spring / summer business casual wear and possibly for pairing with very casual linen and cotton suits in warm weather). Yes, I know one should buy what one likes; I'm just curious how others have approached these questions.
