I'm pretty sure the Cigar LWB is my favourite Alden shoe.

On a whim, popped by the local thrift shop today (hunting for vintage Barbours/Levis/Schott jackets) and found these old girls. 663s.

Admittedly they have some toe damage and need a resole...and...are a width to small for me..and ...are not shell shog[1].gif

I just couldn't leave them behind, who knows where they would end up.!?!

I'll spruce them up a little and they can become my "Training Tassels"...As it has been hard pulling the trigger on a new pair of shell tassels


They were $12!




Maybe $12 too much...confused.gif

Those will be fun to work on. You can practice sanding the edging and whatnot.

Heck you can probably doctor em up and throw them on eBay for $50 too.

Great collection Moosic! It appears that you do have an affinity for #8 on Antique. Never saw those SWBs before this. Interesting. Always learn of new makeups! :-)

Too many great posts to quote Gents. Still can't belive I passed on Hallecks..

Found a few minutes of spare time and decide to use SLR instead on ip6+ to snap a few pics that these models deserve.

Given the way you've asked your question, probably too obnoxiously round for your liking.  I have a pair of the "military last" boots and it's kind of like the Modified last --- you either like it or you hate it.  It's different from most of the other Alden lasts, as is the Modified.  More of a work boot shape.  So if you like rounded work boot type toe boxes, you might like the 379X last.  FWIW, the 379X last is very comfortable for me.
