I apologize. I carried this too far. Stressful week at work I guess.
Thanks for the pic/caption--I can appreciate that humor.
It depends how conservatively you dress. Most any true MC guy (certainly nearly all the AAAC people) will tell you only bals with suits, but the last is really what matters. Balmoral lasts just tend to be sleeker, and more suit-friendly. It's just a personal style decision.
Now that I look again, the LS Hampton medallion bluchers really seem like the ideal Alden suit-friendly blucher: http://leathersoulhawaii.com/2011/12/26/alden-shoes-hampton-medallion-blucher-lsw/
I have the 403s and the 404s - Leffot is offering the 405s with a commando sole, and I was really tempted to get them but, to me, the 403s are nicer
