The reserve is not met on these yet. I wonder how high the bidding will have to go before the reserve is met.

Great looking boots Don L. The argyles and the slacks make a good combo.

Can't wait to finally wear the 4060 (on grant last) tomorrow. I've been reserving them for more formal events, so I'll probably switch up the lacing style. And also, I prefer the fit of these over my other Aldens, which are either on the barrie or trubalance.

Now, do you think they're too dressy/narrow to be worn casually or is that best limited to wider shoes and maybe a little more broguing?

I plan on wearing my Grant captoes casually. I will wear any blucher style or open lacing casually, pretty much. Especially #8.

Well I'm having it shipped to mailbox and had a personal code. Had to do it online, back date till Oct 31 2013 - hopefully its more of the brown version. Thank you for taking the time.

Did you just Mac those new slippers or did you cheat and use a little Alden #8 wax a la patrick_b to get that shine? Lol. Congratulations and wear them in the best of health my friend.

beSpiff: Thank you sir. I am loving these on day 1! I wiped these down with a damp cloth and just buffed them a little bit with a soft cloth. So the shine is pretty much out of the box!

#8 Captoe boots today. Figured I'd wear them today since it's in the 70's and tomorrow will be in the 90's!
