Tassels are classy. My personal favorite is probably my black shell alden for bb tassels.

Ptb on Barrie or Chukka on Leydon?


Suggestions?

 

Snuff suede chukka FTW!

Then tan suede penny loafer.

That's what I did.

does the flex welt sole last as long as a single leather sole? it seems thinner.

I like the cigar tassels. May get them if the 13d NST lace up on Aberdeen fits OK. I think they look fantastic!

See Ya,

Thank you. I appreciate the recommendations, thoughts & the posted illustrations:

Glad I checked before applying any products to my boots.

Get yourself some Saphir Renovateur, and use it sparingly.

Also of note: Natural CXL will always darken over time with wear and subsequent care. Expect this. Embrace it. Meltonian will speed up this process significantly and turn the boots quickly to a more golden tone, away from the grey/beige they start out. A good, clean, stiff brush is your best friend.

This is an evolution of my NatCXL Indys using only Meltonian, before springing for Saphir at the advice of board-knowledge.

Thanks for the complements Uncle. I aspire to have a collection that rivals yours...some day. I think I've got a good start for only being in the game 4 months.

See Ya,

are these barrie lasted ones? they look quite wide. 

 

I just can't get into chukkas. They look like elf slippers to me. More for you guys.

I'll start off with Tan for the summer and time it to get the Snuff for fall.

Well if you wear snuff with black pants they are bound to look odd.

Same here. Whenever I see chukka I think of Will Ferrell in that Elf movie. But, I also think there's a time and a place for chukkas. Maybe I'll change my mind someday. I used to dislike NST's but now I like them

While I don't care for David Beckham, I think this particular ensemble is pretty cool.  I believe his pants are navy, which looks perfectly fine with more navy, and snuff suede chukkas.

Haven't posted any pics lately, so I wanted to show some J. Crew x Alden Ravello love.

As much as I love this makeup, yesterday I wore my Leffot 975s with the antique trim, and I'd have to rate those a bit above these.
