Agreed.  There were many disappointed SF members fishing for my Aldens.  They didn't seem to understand that I'm just as happy to keep them.  Aldens are always welcome in my closet.  Best of luck.

A lot of good color 8 recently. A good side effect of the rare cordovan shortage is that people are appreciating black and especially color 8 cordovan again.

a hefty consensus on here would say eight; I say cigar, as I prefer my olive brown tones out of the box, not ten years down the road.

Uncle, smart looking tassels.  The socks are truly excellent!

I'd say pick the one you lust after most, since cigar and #8 would work equally well IMO for your stated uses. Cigar with an antique edge can't be dressed up quite as easily as #8, but it would be just fine for business casual.
