I have ravello LWB and an unlined color 8 PTB. Assuming my size exists, I might have to jump.

I haven't yet received mine from Alden NY, but I believe theirs and Alden SF's have dark edge trim.

Well, be a good boy...go there...RESIST a purchase and pick up some shoe bags, Alden defender, or polishing cloths. The fellas there are super nice there!

Was curious what y'all thought.  I like these navy chrmxl PTBs, but I also like the LS shortwing navy suede bluchers.  Given the choice, which would you choose??

SWB, love the edge trim and overall look.

There was one of the PTB on the TSM 2nd list , don't remember if it was 10 or 10.5.

I have the blue suede swb and love them. Navy chromexcel is not a personal favorite. I was not sure how versatile the blue suede would be but now I find a lot of chances to wear them. They are very comfortable as well, the sole is great.

Someone may have posted these way earlier in this thread, but a poster on Ask Andy ("Tom Rath") has a pretty impressive collection... What's most interesting is that he apparently uses black polish on all colors, including color 8, cigar and whiskey... The patina on these whiskey shoes is pretty unique

I'd go with the SWB also.

I'd choose the SWB.

Yeah, I'm a fan of the PTBs as well, but those SWBs are fantastic, and SWBs in general are not a terribly common make.

I would go with the navy cxl.  Unless you are in an always-sunny climate, there will be entire seasons and may days you cannot wear the navy suede.  And you cannot see the broguing all that well in the navy suede so you lose some of the impact of the design.  The navy cxl has a particularly rich color, it is versatile --goes with kakhis, jeans,cords of a variety of colors and the cxl is a hardy leather -- wears very well.  That particularly make-up, with the contrasting tan welt and stitching and the brass eyelets, I think enhances its versatility and its good looks.  ome prefer the more muted look, so only you can decide what is for you.

I have used black polish on non-black calfskin for years with great results. Whenever I have tried it on shell it seems to result in a less than optimal shine.

That may be the nicest suede alden shoe I've seen. Checks all the key boxes. Goes nicely with khakis and jeans, light welt, short-wings. Easy call for me.

LS Ultimate Jumper Boot in brown CXL, heading out for some apple picking and freshly made, piping hot cider donuts.

 

 

 

 

Haven't worn these yet this season after purchasing in the spring via B&S. Threw on a coat of VSC last week.
