I've been waffling on these. If what you say is true, I might have to pull the trigger. Zipp, I'm assuming the plum color comes out more when they crease?

That's my assumption.
I'm pretty sure you need them.
Buy or buy not; there is no waffling when it comes to Aldens.

^ So true. It's not that i don't want them. My dilemma of late stems from not NEEDING my 40-something pair of Aldens. I swore I'd move more into other brands when the quality and wait times got crazy recently. Just when I feel committed to that, I find a deal or must-own new make-up. My love/hate relationship with Alden continues.

If there are other brands you'd like to try, then you may want to pursue that.  Move outside your comfort zone so to speak.  You might something you like just as much.

The BB LHS and factory LHS are each on the VAN last. I'm positive of it.

I own them both, and the unlined BB version is definitely more snug.

Alden and I go way back, plus they're an easy fit with my casual style. I've got plenty of EGs for business wear. I haven't been able to completely warm to most of Carmina's lasts, but I'd like to move toward them or Vass. Looking forward to Epaulet's partnership with them.

No doubt Alden fits a variety of styles.  I'm still a big fan but would like to branch out.  I have a pair of George Cleverlys on order (thank you Leather Soul), I'm in the process of ordering a pair of boots from Viberg, and 'd like to try Carmina and Trickers.  At least one pair of each so I can diversify a bit.

I've been thinking about a pair of tricker's stow for a while now, but can't find a reputable retailer that I can experiment with sizes like shoemart does. I don't like dealing with oversea shipping.
