Ok, so these are my first shell purchases, which were largely funded by money I shouldn't be spending right now, given the fact that I'm still in grad school...

Each photo is a first time wear.

LWB #8


WTB #8


Cigar chukka (received via trade)


And I'm hoping it doesn't get a little redundant with the #8 shell when my cap toe boots arrive sometime in August. satisfied.gif

Congratulations on some great acquisitions.

It's great to have a lot of color 8. You'll love the cigar as well

Black unlined cordovan dover PTB from Alden DC

I'm really liking these. Surprisingly light and flexible for a cordovan shoe. The flat welt and single leather sole make it sleeker looking than your average PTB as well. I find the shape of the shoe suits black cordovan very well...

"2 much coffee",

I'm patiently waiting on mine as well. I'm also still waiting on my color #8 and brown alpine grain saddle shoes that I was hoping to get early in the spring.

Very cool. Definitely seems a bit more adventurous than the vast majority of the Aldens on the market.

i agree with my nephew and by the general rule of thumb you would need on the aberdeen last a 9.5 D

Barrie last

Many have reported unlined PTBs fit a bit snugger than the lined versions. I agree, but it's not enough to make a difference in sizing IMO. These are my standard 9.5Es.
