These look great. I noticed that you often wear bals with chinos and cords, and I like these combos. Are you always wearing a jacket when you do this? I guess I'm pondering how casually one can wear a bal (excluding suede, as I think suede bals can be dressed down a bit more).

Leffot just posted up an outstanding pair of CXL Pitt boots with brass eyelets and commando sole. I'm not a boot guy, but these are fantastic. Nice range of sizes too.

Someone just put these up in a size 8, though I'm not sure what color you're looking for.

I called Nick at the Ludlow store today, and someone snatched my size up. Oh well, wasn't meant to be. Hopefully I can get a Ravello Chukka from Shoemart sooner or later.

Then I take it that they are the chromexcel's then? Sorry for the n00b q's. These will be my first pair of Alden. My collection mostly contain RW's and Wolverines.

Looking for feedback on the following black shell boots (from those that own or have owned one or both):

1. Indy on TruB last with commando sole (Shoemart)
2. captoe on Grant last with commando sole (Alden DC)

I am considering one or the other. Thanks guys.

I believe the 401 is just standard calf leather, not chromexcel.

I owned the AF60 from Alden-of-Carmel, which is a captoe on the plaza in black shell, and ended up getting rid of them. With the commando sole, they were too military looking for my purposes. I thought the same of the Alden DC version on Grant when I saw them recently. All depends on the look one is going for I guess. I have the cigar version, and I am not wild about the commando sole on it, really, but I dig the Grant last.

Love the Shoemart Indy on commando. It's far more casual by nature though, so maybe that's why I don't mind the sole in that context. But I also recently sold a cigar pair on commando, and that was part of the reason I parted with them (along with the hand stitched apron).

#8 loafers on Grant today.

DC Captoe on Grant is one of the most comfortable boots I own.  I love the Commando sole given I live in New England.  Appearance wise, when on, you have no clue it is a commando sole.

I like that they have a lot available in "E" width. I hope they start doing this more often. If I didn't just get a pair of Wolverine 1000 Mile boots, I'd probably be all over this.
