I would like to do a natural or tan leather with the tan vibrum soles.

If you guys have any 8.5 plain or round toe Alden's you want to part with please hit me up!

 

This is a pretty close makeup to want you want it is from Allen Edmonds and does not have a full rounded toe but is tan leather, natural welt and big fat rubber sole

Pretty sure they were once Burgundy....and if those fit great there is no reason to get the LWB in #8 go for the NST boot

Pick three to sell out of this selection:

990
Whiskey PTB
Black cordovan unlined PTB
Cigar captoe balmoral
Cigar LWB
Cigar Chukka
Leffot color 8 / alpine grain saddle
Brown suede LWB on commando

Rule: at least one of them has to be a rare cordovan model

See above. Trying to be completely objective as I think we are the same size and there are a couple of models in your list I would love to have.

Alchibiades beat me to it with the Leathersoul suggestion - the wedge sole is the closest to a ripple sole I've seen on an Alden. I have the Natural CXL version and they are super comfortable. Good luck on your search (I know StyleForum member New York RangerIslander had a pair too and I believe he was around an 8.5 so maybe he can be persuaded to part with his...)
 

Thanks for the heads up! I think it would be a great combo! I am going to try and pick up a pair of the natty CXL round toes and have them resoled! I think they will look great. I love the combo of Traditional and Contemporary. 
ALSO I'm really getting obsessed with the ripple sole.

Wow! This is nice. This is getting closer to what I want.

I have 2 pairs of Alden so far -
- shell LWB in 6D which initially was a bit tight overall, but after 20-30 wears feels comfortable with thin socks
- Brand new 403 Indy in 6E, which feels a bit roomy in the toebox even with think socks

I have a couple more pairs on order from Leffot (cigar shell indy and black grain LWB) - both in 6E, and now concerned that they might be too roomy after several years... If so, I will probably be selling them off

If you haven't already, try the 6.5D. I am a 9D in barrie and trubalance but have tried on 9.5D and 9E. I found the 9.5D slightly too wide and the 9E way too wide. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the comment and thoughts! 

If anybody has any round toe Aldens in 8.5 that you would like to part with please message me! I have been looking on ebay but picking is pretty slim...

Super excited about today. Maiden voyage for both my new pair of jeans (Iron Heart 301S) and the long-awaited Leffot LWB. To say I'm happy with these is an understatement biggrin.gif
