As I continue to cope with the shortage of the rarer shells, I've been eager to purchase fun Aldens for the warmer seasons. My question is about whether I'm committing an error of redundancy by owning several different Alden models in snuff suede. I already have the JCrew snuff lwb, but am in the process of contemplating adding the Leydon flex welt snuff chukka and the Van unlined penny in snuff.
I know there are other suede colors available. Although I thought about going with the tan suede for the chukka, its versatility ends up overshadowed when I think about trying to keep a lighter suede color clean. Am I wrong to think this way? Anyone with tan suede/snuff suede comparison pics? Also, I ruled out the brown suede because I was thinking the darker suede might be harder to pair. Indeed, I've been feeling that the snuff suede color offers a very versatile, flexible middle road between the lighter and darker suedes.
Please let me know if I'm on the right track or disabuse me of any deluded thinking.
