My cap toes arrived today too. I'm curious to see how the brown CXL ages. I have no clue.

I think this is the key consideration. Get the unlined pub in navy suede. I worn mine (from Leather Soul) all last summer. No socks. Its a great summer shoe. But get the other one too if you feel so moved.

Brown CXL ages great, I just called Alden NY to see if they had these in 10E, they did. I have to make a decision.

Sound advice (and advice that I - and, I'm betting, Kippy - could have benefitted from years ago...)

It's pretty amazing how good brown CXL can look in non-Indy configurations. If I didn't already have the CXL chukkas I probably would consider these.

these are superb. If I hadn't given up buying Aldens for Lent, i'd be all up on these. for those out there who are anti indy but still want an alden workboot, this is the one! These are better than the context Roys in my opinion.

Thus proving it literally takes an act of God to prevent the Alden from domination of man

Ok, I believe in giving up something for Lent - but did you have to go this far? A little extreme don't you think?
