I've had the AOC chukkas in that leather, and it's definitely dark brown.

Thanks for your experience!!

Hey all, got a bit of a flaw issue with my new PCTs, and wanted to see what people thought. It looks like the welt stitching on the right boot is a bit further away from the welt, cause the tip of the sole to bend downward slightly. Wondering if this should be returned or over time will it correct?

Both boots


Left boot (appears normal)



Right boot (slightly off)



Welcome any thoughts the group might have

Sounds like you no longer have them, I'd love to see pics if I'm wrong!

Granted, I'm far from the pickiest person on the site but these look perfect to me.

Nine times out of ten when I see a thread on here asking about a possible or perceived flaw with a pair of Alden, I end up considering making an appointment with the eye doctor.

Update on my issue with whiskey PTB that had shading issues. I decided to keep them. I think with wear and some polish they will be fine. I appreciate all of the opinions. I did reach a fair compromise and I'm happy.

See Ya,
Steve

Congrats Steve

 

I would have kept those as well. I have a pair of AE shells that has similar issues. It's not even an issue anymore. Enjoy!

Steve those Whiskey PTBs are amazing. I would've kept them too. I'm glad you whole. Now go wear the heck out of them!

I just received a pair of Alden Shell Cordovan Chukkas and I know these fit a 1/2 size large, but I still went with my normal size of 7.5D. If i wear thicker socks they fit very well but if I wear thinner socks they leave a little too much room than I am used to. Should I go down 1/2 size or just stick with the size I have now?

Henry, I think those are cool boots and the natural welt is a good compliment to the brass eyelets and hooks. Definitely not a suit boot though. Your current attire is a great combo for the boots.

Steve, glad that you were able to work it out. Those are great Bluchers and in a while, you probably won't even remember this... :-)

If you throw in a thin green Spenco insole I'd guess they'd fit better and might even be more comfortable.

These are what I use http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000S6JTMQ/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?qid=1417579979&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SY200_QL40

I'd buy the 8-9 and cut it down to fit to insure full coverage. I hope that helps.
