As said, the second pair is a v-tip and not an NST, and it looks like how a v-tip should look. Alden v-tips are fairly rare so consider yourself lucky.

I keep hemming and hawing about these myself

MrDV, great family photos. Congrats on the Ravello LHS. Where did you get the #4's? I need a pair to match my one-piece Horween belt. The blue laces on your whiskey PTB's are awesome, kinda almost pretty.

Game, set, match to them! All that said, as others have already expressed, I am simply amazed at the shine on those PTBs of Macs. Excellent and beautiful.

My friend, just about everyone of these Alden shoe models we glorify and drool over are classics, shoes that have been around for many decades, beyond the 60s and 70s.  Not much if anything has been done to alter or "modernize" our shoes.  No one says we have to dress as some did 40 years ago.  But the fact of the matter is there are many in the business and legal world today that wear the tassel moc and even the full strap as a dress shoe with suits as well as business casual.  Ridicule them all you want, it is a reality whether you choose to wear them in that context or not.  To each his own...

Cheers friends.

All of these are great, but the color of those ravello PTBs is particularly nice.

This is an amazing collection (and picture). If only I had started down this path a little earlier in life. BTW, what's a #4? Never heard that one.

Enjoy your Aldens and let us know how they are wearing for you.

They are, and are available at Moulded Shoe.

With Alden, "whiskey" is one the colors of its cordovan leather - horse ass - shoes. A durable, great-looking, easy-to-maintain leather. "Burnished tan" is one of the colors used for Alden calf leather -cowhide- shoes.

The ravello LHS is quite nice too, and looks less red than the PTB. I go back and forth between wanting a whiskey or ravello LHS.
