I'm ready to pull the trigger on some cordovan Aldens through the NRO sale. I'd eventually like to own a LHS, NST, and LWB (this one in #8, I think I've decided), and perhaps a PTB -- though I think I like NSTs more than PTBs, and I'm not convinced that I need both shoes. My current dress shoe collection is black AE PA, walnut AE Strand, and snuff suede AE Neumok. I plan to add a dark brown suede chukka boot, but haven't found the right one yet. I'm leaning towards a NST in #8 and/or a LHS in #8 or cigar. I think if the soles on the cigar LHS were dark brown instead of natural I would choose them, but I'm not sure about the natural soles, and the pictures I find online of cigar LHS uppers seem to vary considerably from medium to very dark brown. However, since I think for the NST and LWB I prefer #8, it might be nice to have one shoe in cigar. What would you do?
