thanks for the kind words rtp. aldens do help me feel better about going to work in the mornings. no one else at work notices them much anymore, but I feel happy wearing them.

I very much agree with the wingtip comment, but not so much with the Leydon chukka.  I don't care for sleekness in a very casual shoe, but that's just me.

I think different shades of ravello on the same gunboats is pretty great. and ill say it again, I need that belt.

I know these aren't Alden's but these RL Marlows are fantastic, needed some brown shell since Alden is having a hard time getting me some Ravello..

Black shell is great. The shine is unmatched. Wore my black shell Alden for BB tassels today. A wonderful shoe. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

The C&J for RL dark brown shell is very nice. I own the Marlow and Lindrick. My tassels are to arrive tomorrow. Picked them up the last day of the 25% off sale. nod[1].gif

This is my first Alden. Brown-calf wingtip boots with commando sole.
Since it's the first pair, i need to risk ordering same size as my other boots, it turns out perfect fit to me.
Let me save up for a while, i'll go for the Shell's.

Remember that different lasts fit very differently, so the same size in a different last may not fit the same at all.

I love the Leydon, and wish Alden used it more, especially with suede offerings. It only looks sleek compared to a Barrie shoe or boot; if you set a Leydon lasted shoe next to something that's actually sleek (i.e. something not made by Alden), then it looks pretty normal for a casual shoe. Also I'm biased because so far Leydon has been the best fitting last for my foot smile.gif
