Burnished tan calf with light edge. Like the color and sole but I'm afraid the calf lacks the depth and richness of the shell.

 

And finally #8 with dark edge. Again would prefer the light edge and I think I want the #8 in the NST boot.

 

I am looking for a color that pairs well with light gray. I don't want to change the direction of the discussion but this is to dress down a light gray suit for a semi casual, early summer, northern Ontario, family wedding. I think the tan would be best but I really love the character of the shells and want the cigar to work. 90% of the wear will end up being at the office with jeans.

 

Thanks,

Color 8 pairs the best with light grey. I would get the 'normal' black edge ones personally, model 975:

Saw it in the sunday paper. I am going to try to go.

BTW: I read a little about Alden discontinuing the restoration service. What is the status?

Cigar with light edge trim if you can find it

#8 longwing actually looks better with the dark edge IMO. My first Alden was a #8 longwing bought a while ago, it still gets significant wear, goes with light grey, dark grey, denim, etc.
