Moulded shoes in NY may have the #8 cap toe boots, but in Modified last.
Should also consider the BB C&J #8 boots. Real nice. They retail for $998, but will be close to 50% off during the Thanksgiving Sale.
yeah they look fantastic, w jeans especially. still waiting for a ntl cxl LHS on leather sole.
i have the unionmade blue suede tassels and they are fantastic too.
Alden Defender is your friend.
I treat all my shells with it prior to wearing (and my existing shells once the product came on the market). I too got caught in some light rain today wearing my black shell monochromatic saddle bals. No spots.
I am looking at buying a pair of Epaulet Rivet Chinos possibly. I mainly dress casually - button downs, sweaters, chinos, jeans - best describes my style.
I'm not quite sure which color to get. I don't shy away from navy/indigo too often for pants . Comfort zone!
I have cigar LWBs, just bought alden x leffot ravello cap toe boots, cxl indy, and chocolate suede shoes (AE)
What do you all think about these with that line up?
(I could only buy one pair from epaulet, and those are two options)
Taupe - for sure.
that's how i feel about penny loafers such as the LHS. maybe when i'm 55, but not now. if i was going to get a loafer, i'd rather get something sleeker and less preppy.
only possible exception i'd make on alden loafers would be these blue suede tassels, but i wonder if they'd look too feminine:
Does anyone wear tassel loafers these days, (Uncle Mac notwithstanding)? Thinking of getting the BB cordovan tassels. I like the full strap loafer but after trying a couple different sizes, the Aberdeen last does not work for me with a vamp that low (heel slip). Thought maybe the higher vamp tassels would be a good trade. But tassels?
I personally love the tassel moc. From what I've read, most shoe connoissers view the tassel moc as Alden's most classic make up. The aberdeen fit is excellent and seems dressier than the LHS. Can be worn with a casual look as well as a suit. I've never been a loafer guy, but I'm a fan of the tassel moc.
Me = TTS 9.5D or 9.5E, low volume, ectomorph. Still trying to figure out this line ... LWB @ 9D if unlaced, I can slip my foot forward enough to put my index finger between my heel and the back of the shoe. Barrie Lasted. Is this right? Haven't worn a Blucher in some time.. like eons.....My LHS Lined is loose (heel slip) at 9D. But my BroBro Unlined LHS is a perfect fit, slightly snugger than the LHS Lined, w/ no heel slip. Wondering if anybody goes down a whole size in this line to get a perfect fit. Maybe I should order some 8.5D LHS's. Would kill for some feedback before I invest any more $$ in this line. Was looking at the Chukka #8 next.
LHS Whiskey 9D
LWB Whiskey 9D
BB LHS Unlined 9D

C&J for Ralph Lauren Marlow Shortwing 9.5D (US) a little loose
C&J for Ralph Lauren Tassel similar to the Arberden last 8.5D pretty tight
C&J for Ralph Lauren PTB (beautiful PTB) 9.5D great fit
