I believe the Cigars are from Alden DC. Have no plaza boots, so I can't help you there.

I don't have much experience with cap toes and kind of feel they are a bit formal for the casual nature of the leather.

Any thoughts?

Finally got my first pair of shell: #8 captoe boots from Alden SF.

 

Working on breaking them in now!

Thank you. The brown (cigar) boots were sold by alden dc. I bought them from a fellow sf member. Plaza is my favorite boot last. Not too sleek for casual wear for my taste. Most pants I wear are altered to 7.5 inch opening and almost no break. Plaza may be too sleek when paired with wider leg openings.

How does the grant fit? Are the large or TTS?

Wow, you have this whole pant leg thing to a science. But I understand, you got to properly expose your Alden's!

It was a good day for #4 boots. Lots of sun in SF.

Gorgeous. And while I'm assuming the flower petals were incidental, they are a nice touch smile.gif

dubs: Grant, for me, fits TTS.

San Francisco seems like a great place to wear Aldens. Boots and suede can be an option basically all year.
