Finally I have something to contribute in Aden thread
Alden for J.Gilbert makeup - nst boots model 45152HC, shell #8, commando sole, Plaza last. Fit is good, as I ordered US10E - my normal size is UK9,5E
I like the fit of Plaza much more than fit of Barrie and Aberdeen (the nastiest one I've tried).

Color is fantastic, rich and multilayer, my AE and Carmina Bordeaux shoes/boots immediately appears to be just brown. Only Vass Oxblood looks close.
Finish of the shell is also excellent, best among all my shell footwear - Carmina, C&J for RL, AE, AS and Vass.
The quality/details of the boots are just okay, comparable, nothing to talk about.
