not new at all. These were tan cap toes until i got impatient with the color and had them turned to brown at a local shop. which is lovely. the previous color really adds some depth to the added color.

Styles mentioned in this thread:

What last are those on? Looks like the toe is a little chiseled, so maybe not our good and steady friend Barrie, then? I'm a fan of the cap toe.

Those are on modified last 8 eee. so it's a little bit odd in terms of sizing and last. they work well and are very comfortable. i wear a 8.5d Barrie... but painfully.

I was going to guess Modified, but figured I might as well ask. Great Aldens and nice to know you've got the right width.

Thanks for the help gents. Looks like the JCrew Indy's I have on the way are gonna go back faster than they got here. Those cordovan's are just begging me to give them a good home.

Both are good but I would go for Cigar.

#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.

Thanks. Your input is very helpful in that I just found a dealer nearby that will order in the #8 LWB for me at $550. Hard to pass up that price.

Now, what should my 2nd pair of Alden's be? Cigar chukka or PTB? Something in Revello seeing as I have a pair of J Gilbert Cigar Indy's on pre order?

...didn't intend on getting any Aldens until maybe Christmas.  But, already ordered some color 8 shell chukkas....

...and now eyeing shell LWBs...the question is, whiskey or cigar?  man...

And here is my contribution to your decision process. Love the light edge trim on the Cigar LWBs.

...but then the next question is...if LWB is taken, what style goes well with whiskey shell?


I personally think Whiskey shell looks best in the LWB. Without it I'd go with PTB or even the chukka.

whiskey captoe boot would be tremendous, though. who makes one?

SFer barabara knows who will (these were MTO though)

I find Whiskey to be the least adaptable color shell. I've owned whiskey LWB, whiskey tankers, whiskey chukka, whisky LHS, etc., etc. The only whiskey in my current wardrobe is a pair of SWB from Tassels HK and I wear them infrequently.

Whiskey should look great with anything tan calf looks good in.

I find whiskey looks great with denim in casual outfits in any format (boot, LWB, etc). Whiskey also looks great with any light or bright chinos - Nantucket red, light blue, white...

For some reason, I think whiskey looks stranger in more formal outfits when the same "tan" calfskin shoe would work great. Not sure exactly why this is.

These look awesome, though I think they are more on the ravello side of the whiskey-ravello continuum than the whiskey side. Alden seems to churn out a variety of shell colors in between "true" ravello and "true" whiskey

Edit - take that back, these have almost none of the red/orange you get in ravello. Pure butterscotch coloring. Awesome pair of whiskey
