Please help me choose just one:

I can only choose one for now. Please justify position based on versatility or complementarity with lwb collection that includes jcrew waxed brown, color 8 shell and snuff suede. Help!
Sadly there's no medication for this affliction of ours.
I have five Alden shells, two black, two #8 and one cigar. Of course, personal preference and needs enter into these decisions. For me, the cigar is more versatile than a whiskey would be. Mine is a LWB.
I have a whiskey LWB on my own wish list, also a cigar cap toe balmoral. Not sure which one I'll go for next, depends in part on availability and any deal, but I'm leaning towards the LWB whiskey as I have a pair of brown J&M cap toes that are really fine, made in USA, look good and are comfortable. Also, another issue for me is that I don't know how much use I'd get from the whiskey LWB, I just want a pair because they look like real cool shoes.
Eventually, I'll probably have both, another cigar and the whiskey.
