Oh well. In any case, they look pretty sharp. If they were snuff, I'd be on them in a second. I too am worried about the light colored suede.

I also asked the same question because the sole pic looks like TB. But the the uppers looks like Barrie, tyey have no idea this is the answer I received:

Hi,

This is a great question and I am researching into this to find out for you. As soon as I receive the answer, I will email you again and let you know. This may take a few days, but I want to make sure I get the right answer.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out - I'm happy to help.

Best,

It's probably best to get the style number from inside the boot and then email Alden, as I did with the alpine grain cap toe bluchers which are Hampton. I sent the info to J. Crew who said they'd get this to their web team. I see they have top men on it.

I called, after ordering, and had the exact same conversation with a similarly confused/overwhelmed agent. We must drive them nuts smile.gif Once one of us has a question/interest about something, god knows how many of us (many of whom never post about it) make the same phone call on the same day. Lol.

After finally seeing these on a desktop, versus mobile device, I'm 99% certain they are trubalance as well.

Mr. K, the Leffot #8 Dovers are killer. Looking good! May I inquiry into what your pants are? I have trouble pairing my #8 Unlined Dovers with outfits, so I am curious as to how people sport them (beyond denim).

These pants are jcrew 484 chinos. I use lily wear chinos with these or white denim.

Apparently some folks don't have a proper grasp of the English language.

Just received my NST boots on the Aberdeen. This is my first pair. Wearing them around the house to break them in. There is a bit of heel slippage but not much. My foot is secure in the boot. Also lacings are almost touching. Just want to make sure they fit/look well before I can't return them.

Congrats JK! Looks perfect.

Alden NST is my favourite Alden style. I can't get enough of my Leffot Tankers. Still in a box, just waiting for cooler days.
