J Crew takes horrible product photos. They can make a beautiful shoe look like garbage in no time.

FYI - I returned a pair of Cigar LWB in size 10D (too big for me) to Alden SF if anyone is interested - they should be back in SF any day now.

I saw the NST on Citishoes but not Unionmade. Do you have a link?

You think I can wear these with business casual attire, i.e. khakis or chinos with polo or button down shirt? What about with a suit? Any other ideas for suede shoes or even boots?

The shoes in the link would work with a suit (depending on color). I would wear them business casual, but I do not wear oxfords with jeans. 

I'll agree with tifosi on this - it's not the suede that makes these shoes casual, it's the overall style. I actually have those 5 eyelet bluchers in the snuff suede from TSM and they are my go-to casual to wear with jeans, cords, and chinos, but I have a hard time even trying to pair them with nicer trousers and a sportcoat.

The Epaulet suede alt weins seem considerably more "refined" and I think I would find them much easier to pair with a a sportcoat or even a suit. I think the key to wearing suede with a suit is that the suit fabric needs to be a bit heavier with a bit of texture to it (although you could maybe also go the other way and pair a linen suit with something like a suede strap loafer in the warmer months).

Totally makes sense about the suede, thanks.

That's the word I was looking for about the Epaulet snuff suede alt wien..."refined." I also found these similar make-ups by Leffot...

http://leffot.com/shop/index.php/shoes/alden/d4506-snuff-suede-derby.html

The Epaulet snuff suede alt wien appear to be a little more rugged than the Leffot version, which I like.

What's the difference between the Aberdeen and Hampton last?

Nice, but per usual they can't be bothered to indicate the last.

Not much on the 11.5d/12d TSM list.

Just a couple of Barrie boots in colour 8

Probably in another 3 to 4 years (once the kids are old enough that I don't have to physically chase them around anymore), I will have my right bunion corrected (the left one was fixed in 2004), so I haven't bothered to alter any of my shoes in any way.

The only thing that I know for sure is that leaving the world of squishy cemented Clarks and Rockports has strengthened my Achilles' tendons tremendously. It's been two years since I've had a tendonitis flare up in that area.

Anyway, good luck!

 

Yeah that is kind of what I read too, honestly mine is very minor and does not cause any pain at this point. Only in the tightest of toe boxes can I even feel it rub, which kind of feels like having a bruise on your foot). If for somreason I cannot fit the orthotic in most shoes I am going to look into other options for now as I will not be replacing like $10,000 worth of shoes haha, at least not yet.
