I have color 8 with dark edging and I have color 8 with antique edging. I easily prefer dark edging.

Thanks for the info, but not into commandos on that boot.

uncle Mac : those cigar WTBs on the Plaza are drool-worthy.
These, and your Cigar Captoe boots on the Plaza are my favorites of yours.

Here's my almost 2 years old Cigar Indys with some hairy RRL Raw Low-Straight denim

I'm partial to antique edge trim to the point of eventually putting antique edge trim on every pair of Aldens I own when time to resole.

Interesting. Do you mean just color 8 or all shell colors? My comment was limited to color 8.

Dress shoes and shoes/boots used casually? Or just those used casually?

I'd say all shell colors and so far my Color 8s(aside from JGilbert captoe), Ravello and Black shell all have antique edge trim. I do tend to use my shoes in a more casual setting.

But to each their own.

Welcome to the forum.  This is indeed a great place to learn from the pros in a gentlemanlike environment.  

 

My first Alden purchase (a little over a year ago) was the Alden shell Color 8 Chukka.  While I love them, I find that the eyelets are not enough to keep my foot firmly fastened within the shoe.  That has not stopped me from wearing them weekly, but next time I will go for a six eyelet chukka.  If I had to do it over again, I would have definitely gone with the No 8 PTB.

 

Good luck and enjoy your visit to NYC.
