Jim at Alden SF is great to work with.

I have the captoe boot in color 8 - mine are on the Grant Last from TSM. I was hesitant at first to buy them (wondering if they would get enough use). I'm very happy with them - and they can be dressed up or down quite easily. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

The wt boots are great as well.

Correct.

As I type they are on my feet - Ravello.

I was indifferent to chukkas (regardless of maker) until I acquired my first Alden shell chukka (cigar). I liked them so much it led to the rainbow (and a lighter wallet!!), and the rest is history .....

They are very versatile. I dress them up with everything short of suits, and also dress them down with jeans, etc. With pant leg down they look just like the ptb.

Since you already have 2 pairs of chukkas, I would recommend something a little different such as an LWB. Ideally Cigar or Whiskey would be great if you can find it in stock in your size somewhere. Or if you want to stick with boots, then a wingtip boot would be a nice choice.

Well...after posting this I found the exact shoe on ebay in my size at just over $100 so I decided to give it a shot. So...here is the before:




And the After. Still brushing and adding a bit of polish here and there to even out the finish, but came out pretty good. Tried to get close to a RL Marlow color:




Thanks...JT

forum question: what is your go-to alden of choice for rainy days when you need to wear a suit?

post #32850 of 87415
^ thats tough. I dont like wearing a leather soled boot and the commando sole is too rugged. I think Alden would look great on Dainite
