Thanks for the input guys, appreciated. I was leaning toward captoe also. I like black wingtips but think that may not be suitable in some situations while wearing a suit (a funeral for example).

I think it's a 10% increase...not a big deal IMO.

There is nothing from Alden that I really want right now anyway that is available in my size. Just need some whiskey's.


Mediahound - I'm in the same boat as you are. I don't have a black pair yet, but I will be buying a black pair of captoes unless I can find wingtips. (Already have 2 pairs of longwings so I want to diversify).

You can get stock items (like a #8 shell chukka) from any Alden retailer (they might have to order them).

You need to contact Tom at Leather Soul about getting in on a pre-order for his special shell boot runs in the future. I wear a narrow size as well, and this is the route I've gone. You will have to put a deposit down, and then you have a commitment to buy the shoes as they are outside of the regular order run.

It's a bit over midnight on the east coast, granted I'm on the west coast, haha. (I'll be asleep in a few hours and won't have time tomorrow). My modest collection. All pairs were from Shoe Mart sans the J. Crew and Winn Perry. Currently have a pair of ravello boots ordered from Epaulet. Will probably add black captoe's and natural chromexcel Indy's and chill out a bit...unless I can find a pair of whiskey's I really like. Left to right top row: Winn Perry pebble grain boots, 405 Indy's, Cigar LWB's, #8 captoe boots Left to right bottom row: J. Crew LWB's, dark burgundy/brownish pebble grain wing tip boots.

I'm looking for something I could wear with a suit but perhaps also wear more business casually as well.

Should I get something like this?:



or a black wingtip or captoe? Those are the three styles that appeal to me the most. I don't really like plain toe shoes.

Any opinions? I don't yet own a pair of black shoes and need some.

Not a fan of plain toe shoes either, but wanting something to wear with a conservative suit when required, I compromised with a perforated cap toe. Gives it a little bit of style but still conservative. (Alden 901)

post #10815 of 97049
I've come to the realization that the Aberdeen last just doesn't work well for me, so I'm going to set free my size 11.5D cigar shell 6 eyelet NST ankle boot. Worn 3-4 times now - pics to come this weekend.

Purchased for $650 from Shoe Mart - anyone interested at $575 shipped?
