I think one of the things we can agree on is the LWB being one of the three.

Styles mentioned in this thread:

Great shade of ravello uncle. Been busy getting ready to switch rotations and also moving; hope all with well with you.
Who has 10+ pairs? thumbs-up.gif

nephew,
thank you

My personal top 3:

#8 LHS
#8 Tassel Moc
#8 SWB

I might take some flak for putting the SWB over the LWB, but I find it a bit more versatile in my wardrobe.

My alden progression:

original indy boot
#8 lwb
whiskey lwb (returned due to vamp coming loose and alden botching the repair job)
whiskey indy
black grant captoe
dark brown unlined suede chukka
#8 ptb
hampton black captoe bals
#8 lhs

cigar captoe boot on order since 1980 it feels like...
next purchase will likely be a ravello ptb/sw or some other boot
I have learned that I don't like alden calf - it stretches too much and doesn't hold its shape. Yes, I use correctly fitted trees. I will just have to venture out for calf shoes in the future.

She was very apologetic over the ordeal, then she put me on hold went and talk to the owner to see what they could do for me. Amazingly, they offered to send me the LHS Ravello Shell Cordovan AND they gave me a 10% off coupon for a future order!! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif. Here is my new order confirmation in case you want to try the same approach.

I nearly broke my 'never post' rule, as your comments above really upset me, and then I hit your link, and all the anger washed away. then i broke my rule, so I could say thanks!

LHS

LWB

Would be my 3 staple Alden styles (these styles all have a casual and American feel to them, and my not be perfect for guys who sport suits 90% of the time)

seems like a lot of you guys consider the 403/405 indy to be pretty high up on the "My First Aldens" list.

hmm....

^ Gateway shoe.

 

From "...$400 for a boot seems like an awful lot...but it's supposed to last forever..."

 

To "...$600 is now the norm..."

 

To "...OMG...you might get some color 4?  Here, take my wallet.  I can also put my dog down as deposit..."
