Probably... Though you could say wear the darker one with more formal gear, and the ligher one more casually. I feel that the light version would be an awesome spring and summer shoe.

One of these is likely going up for sale soon

They both look great, but very similar. Thanks for the feedback!

Hi there - long time lurker first time poster....lots has been said about Alden restoration, but I hadn't seen anyone address this question....when you send your shoes in do you have the option of changing the sole type...ie going from a double oak to a single oiled? 

 

thanks

i believe they used to do this, but will now only put what the original model came on. i haven't sent any in for restoration though so i can't say for sure. a cobbler can, of course, put whatever you want on there. many on this forum like b. nelson.

I feel the full strap is the most 'mature' style of Alden's lineup. However, as a 28 year old, I wouldn't think twice about sporting these. Beautiful.

I don't have LWBs but I will wear my PTBs with less formal suits.  For example, I have a casualish suit with patch pockets that I will wear my PTBs with.

Just curious to see if any of you guys have changed out a leather sole for a rubber sole of a sort? I am thinking of doing this to a pair of LWBs.

In truth, the answer is no, but mostly because I have plenty of other more formal shoes. Having said that, many do.

With respect to wearing suits with shell PTBs and shell LWBs: for me personally, I wear black and color 8 from time to time; I do not wear cigar, color 4, ravello, or whiskey with suits. This isn't to say it can't be done - it certainly can - except whiskey, IMO.
