Mine are for work/business so I went for black bal wing tip, #8 cap toe and black cap toe. Got I deal on black saddle. All are shell. Now after cigar cap toe and LWB and #8 LWB, no particular order, depends on what I can find in my size.

i've paired down to only 4 Aldens, after buying and selling off a few pairs along the way:

#8 unlined ptb, flex welt, barrie from Alden SF
Snuff suede chukka, flex welt, leydon
Black cordo captoe boot, double leather, barrie from Alden SF
#8 plaint toe boot, commando, plaza from J. Gilbert

i can wear pretty much whatever i want to work, and i find these 4 models give me options in all seasons and a chance to rotate during the week. i wouldn't mind adding something in cigar somewhere down the road, but i'm pretty content with my little collection.

#8 LWB

#8 LHS

Whiskey LWB

 

These are my top three players in this line.

Very tough to limit it to three because of the wide usage case for these shoes

Captoe boot
Longwing
There needs to be one cigar, one color 8, Doesn't really matter which
Ravello tassels

-Color 8 Longwing

-Tassels Ravello Hunting Boot

-Epaulet Milkshake Indy Boot

if i was starting over and had unlimited choices:

unionmade beale cigar dovers
#8 punched captoe boot from j crew
BBBF black shell longwing (can't believe nobody has these on their top 3)


if i ever find a decent deal on the j crew boots, i'm going to sell my #8 wingtip boots and get the j crews instead. i think one pair of brogues is enough for me given how business casual my workplace is.

Thanks. Of course... Pretty faded though...

I had a little surprise waiting for me when I got home today.  Unfortunately I don't have time for a proper unboxing right now.  But I think this will be a good one.
