I love these. Black shell is wildly under appreciated. Yours are in particularly beautiful condition.

Ugh I want! Where?! This is the Oscar last, right? I haven't seen this last very often, but it looks perfect for a PTB.

Nice pic! I'm beginning to really like the full traditional look of the Alden's. The Carmina's have that elongated European style which is very eye-catching. My question is which one is more comfortable?

100% true.

Leave it to the English to feel the need to employ an Anglo-Saxon usage in a blog URL about trousers. Fairly entertaining, though.

I kind of want to sell my AE PAs and replace them with an equivalent black shell Alden (9071 or 9016), but as I unfortunately rarely wear a suit, I think it would be a waste of funds that could be used elsewhere.

The Alden for BB PTB will get you that extra narrowness. It is not on the Barrie last. My Alden for BB PTB in color 8 is my only Alden PTB** I wear with a suit. One of my black shell PTBs - vintage Florsheim Imperial, purchased NOS - also makes the cut to be worn with a suit. It too has that extra narrowness.

** I realize many wear various Alden shell PTBs with suits. I have no problem with that at all.

I agree with this, but to each their own.

awesome! do you have any photos of well-loved tobacco chamois?

This post is in response to Sqroot3 request for photos of my tobacco chamois.

Sqroot3:
Thank you for the request to see some photos of the tobacco chamois. Here are a few photos I just took. It is now night in Africa so I am just using indoor light. I will shoot more photos tomorrow during the day outside. The one with more patina is the one I use for field work. The one that looks newer is of course the one I use for other than field work. My third pair of tobacco chamois is in its box in the USA. Enjoy!

A black shell captoe bal, of course, works great with a suit, but can also be used with shirt/tie/sportcoat or just shirt/tie. And Mac perhaps wears his in even more casual settings - I don't know.

I have the Alden for BB version of the 9016 - but on the Snap last. I really like it.

But it sounds like you would get more use out of the 2161:
