I like the idea or cordovan because it seems like the raw denim of the shoe world. What do you guys think?

cigar gets my vote, ptb or indy boot

Got excited until I saw the size (too big for me).  Thought the same thing about the following two...

I have another ebay gem arriving today.  Will post pics later.  Probably a good thing these three other Alden auctions didn't work out!

Color 8 or cigar in a chukka or Indy boot would serve your purposes well.

I'm leaning heavily towards color 8, but I'm stuck between the indy boot, the cap toe boot from j crew, and the chukka.

Started my morning off with my newest acquisition, a little whiskey courtesy of the guys at Alden SF.

As far as calf goes, there would be little argument that this model - indy boot - is the most casual:

However, there would be some Alden fans that would contend such a boot belongs on the work site and nowhere else.

As far as Alden's shell cordovan colors, whiskey is the most casual - and it's not even close. This PTB is a great casual shoe:

Of these 3 the captoe boot is the dressiest.

Does Alden NYC give free shoe trees?

Anyone know if these will ever come back anywhere?

Cap toe boot, definitely. You can wear that with anything.

Have you ever been sized? Are you sure you're not actually a half size smaller?

I'm going to conduct an experiment... I have a whiskey chukka in 9.5E coming (which is my true size in Barrie). I'm going to Mac break-in method them then wear then a few times and compare the creasing to my whiskey chukkas in 10D, which have gotten 20+ wears by now. I will then post some photos. Look for it in early January (I will also then probably sell my 10D whiskey chukkas if all goes well)
