My first Aldens were cigar Indys, and it escalated quickly from there.

My first three would be:
Shortwing balmoral, color #8
Plaintoe blucher, cigar
Longwing blucher, whiskey

I appreciate the Leisure Handsewn loafer love, but I find the Van last unwearable and prefer both the last and shade of brown shell used by Crockett & Jones for their Ralph Lauren loafers.

My current top three are:
Medallion captoe balmoral, color #8
Longwing blucher, cigar
Wingtip boots, ravello

I just picked up a pair of snuff suede chukkas on a crepe sole from j.crew. I've been looking for that exact makeup for years. They were sold out of my size online, but a store search found a pair in 8.5. Heading into fall, they are #1 with a bullet.

Considering the lead time of many MTO, that's a lot of dog years for waiting. colgate.gif

Impossible to narrow down the top 3, particularly if we are not narrowing it down to categories, such as: shoes, boots, dress, casual.

With that said, I would throw out these 3 for consideration:

cigar LWB
ravello SWB
color 8 captoe blucher (Alden for BB)

It is at this point (bold text) when a guy knows he has been had. And for those of you who have not reached that point - be patient, your time will come. biggrin.gif

Killing it! That carpet demands tough boots.

Hi Guys

Anyone know if this shoe on eBay is ravello or whiskey? Similarly, could it actually be a 10.5 D rather than a B width?

Thanks...

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

My top 3 save #8 Short Wing Bal as #3...
