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.

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.

Nice.

Mine arrived at BNelson today via mail for a full JR restoration with double leather sole. Nick called my cell phone to confirm the specs. on my order. Class act. He thought they would be in the shop for a week to ten days and then shipped out.

I use Alden and BNelson for restorations on my Aldens - and in this case I went with Nick since Alden would only do a restoration based on original specs (single leather sole).

I go down in width for all my aberdeen tassels, but keep the same size in length.

Amen to that.

Thanks for the dentist chair shot. I love that BB model. I had that model and had to let them go. For some reason they were killing my pinkie toe.
Bonus: You reminded me to cancel my dentist appt Friday morn! Thanks.

For me it's something of a new discovery - I think it looks absolutely fantastic - colour 8 boots are next!
