Bravo on this purchase!!  This Short Wing is the BOMB, notice the less bulbous toe box that seems to be on every Alden sans NST, Aberdeen Tassel....

Chukkas don't a lot of love on this thread, but these and my whiskey chukkas are my most complimented Alden shoes. Chukkas really highlight the appeal of cordovan

I love'em. Some of the best looking beef-rolls yet!

My first two chukkas were cigar and whiskey. Both wonderful. Plaintoe shells are great for displaying the beauty of shell.

Yes sir! They were my first pair of shells. The beginning of an addiction.

My Alden for BB PTBs in color 8 are one of my favorites.

Damn, 7-fold, quite the Sherlock you are.  Well done.  But I guess you should be able to do that with the extensive collection you have!

Beef rolls? Aren't beef rolls a type of loafers?

I think he is referring to the creases in the leather

Some people are bothered by the creasing in chukkas, but I think they actually add character to the shoe (as long as the shoe is maintained well with brushing and such)

Is this the same result people get with B Nelson for Dainite? If so, any hesitation I have to get my 405s resoled with Dainite is completely removed.

This is borderline too much roll. Any more and I'd say the shoe doesn't fit
