Thank you CA.

The 975 is a main staple to any wardrobe... Why not just buy it directly from Alden via one of their company stores (DC or San Francisco) or is your size the issue? I believe thats a style they readily keep in stock (unless the rumors about a shell shortage that have been circulating on the forum have come to bear reality).
agree. i think alden sf has most sizes of the 975 in stock right now.
Wear on good health, Sazon! Just one question: didn't we both get these a couple months ago? I'm impressed with your ability to restrain yourself; I wore them out to town the very first night!
Happy maiden voyage...
I have two color 8 Florsheim imperial shell models from the1970's - LWB and PTB - and one black shell model from 1981 - PTB. I wear them all TTS. I like each of them as well as my Aldens. They fit like a glove and are of wonderful quality. American made.
Wore my black ones tonight .....
where did you find my florsheim's. those were the equal to aldens and more costly
My camera doesn't do these shoes justice. I assumed I would use these exclusively for casual to business casual, but these SWB's look outstanding; they could easily be dressed up with a suit. There are those though, who believe bluchers should not be paired with suits. I'm not one of them.
The commando sole is subtle enough for a dressy boot, imo.
i agree with your conclusion that they could and should be worn with a suit and tie.
