About time I put up a picture of my own Aldens.  Color #4 chukkas.  Nothing better than color#4 in the sunshine.

I should have bought whiskey longwings or PTBs when I had the chance instead of wingtip bals (which are harder to wear). Whiskey is an awesome casual shade.

No... The 975 is more versatile as it can be both dressy and casual while dark cordovan longwings over antique soles (color 8, cigar, etc) tend to look very casual. Those longwings are awesome weekend shoes, but they can get lost in the rotation if you have a lot of other weekend shoes/boots (as you do). I find myself reaching for the 990 more than the Leffot LWB these days, which is kind of shocking. I expect to wear the Leffot LWB more when I break out the heavier tweed pants (antiqued longwings really excel with those).

Plus, the Cigar LWBs and the Leffot Antique LWBs are more or less the same shoe, and you have both. Cigar probably my favorite shell color but I sold my cigar LWB due to lack of wear.

Those look like black cordovan naval boots from Leffot

I would like to see a color 8 shortwing on the Aberdeen for all those who aren't cool
with the Barrie last.

Oh yea...the naval boots. Duh. I completely drew a blank there for a second.

I guess I'll just keep reading these threads and dream. (I do have four mto boots that are pending that will have to keep the addiction satiated.)

 

 

Persian rugs make a great backdrop for photographing classic shoes and boots.  :bigstar:

That is correct. 

It was a toss up between these and the Color 8. 

Either choice was a win IMO.

No wrong answer in that scenario!

8/13 - order placed, boots on backorder
9/14 - order shipped (to my old address unfortunately)
9/19 - delivery attempted, then forwarded to new address
9/29 - processed through sort facility in Greensboro, NC (keep in mind I live in Florida)
9/30 - depart USPS sort facility

And then no updates since then. I literally moved about 5 miles from my old place to my new place, but instead of forwarding the package directly there, it somehow got forwarded to North Carolina and now I don't know where it is. I used to like USPS but they're really pissing me off here.

 

This happened to me once in a very similar setting (moved about 5 miles from the old place; order sent to the old address but USPS had the address change in file). My package shipped to my old address in NJ ended up being processed by the Greensboro center. I never received it but it was subsequently resent to the sender. This took about 3 weeks in total.
