Okay, that's good to know. I guess the price difference stems from the style - eyelets vs hooks? TSM has them in stock now where J Crew has a Feb ship date, maybe that makes the decision right there...

Pebble Grain Chukka with Commando Sole
Someone out there is enjoying the 9D Ravello that I gave up. I actually find myself wearing the Alden Chukka models more than the boots.

I'd wear those into the ground...such a durable and well made shoe. In fact, I'd try and find an excuse to wear those everyday, just on general principal.

Does anyone know where I can get a pair of natural CXL PTB like this? Thanks in advance.

These will cover the bases.

Well if they won't do it for you I don't think they would do it for anyone. The Aberdeen is a tough last for a slip on. I know you can get shell loafers on the Grant and I may give them a try.

It's funny how everyone's feet are different, my tassel loafers (10E) in Aberdeen are my best fitting Alden shoes. I'd like Alden to produce the LSH on the Aberdeen last as I have failed so far in attempting to wear the LSH in Van.

Call the Alden Store on Madison Avenue in NYC, they may have it.

I like the pebble grain. Don't have anything in it, but feel as if I will someday. Those look like very practical chukkas, that are also very good looking. Enjoy wearing them.
