The LHS is literally the only Alden model where whiskey is my first choice. After that, probably a toss-up between color 8/cigar/ravello. And of course they are all nice.

Anyway, I will be employing a more extensive use of the Mac break-in Method thru the weekend with better pics to come.

9D Brannock and my 8.5D LWBs fit great. Otoh, the one pair of 8.5D Barrie boots I had were too small; I felt they ran short. If/when I get another Barrie boot, I'd def. consider going TTS 9D rather than up a width to an 8.5E.

Fantastic shot for the summer! It's your LHS images that have me strongly considering adding the LHS to my rotation. I think they look particularly nice in the lighter shell colors as pictured above.

I completely agree. I think my most worn Alden is actually the 986. I know it gets over looked for more rare models but when I cannot decide which shoe to wear to a meeting, out to dinner, etc. I simply go with the 986. I think it is such a versatile shoe. I also love what Tom at LS did recently having it re-soled with a natural welt and a red Dainite sole.
I would love to add a cigar version to my collection.

nephew,
I hope the break in method will provide the results you are looking for.

Nothing wrong with a #8 LHS, but I agree that the LHS is especially nice in cigar, ravello, or whiskey.
