    Personally I had to go tts on these boots. No biggie though, Alden made quite a few pairs.

    Rtp, you hadshared pics of your new black shell ptbs 9901. I would love to see how they have turned out with wear. If you could share pics of your black ptbs that would be wonderful.
    Cheers my friend!

    Because of the doubled up leather on Wingtip shoe design, do you find them warmer to wear than say a PTB or Cap Toe makeup. I know .. Silly question ... but I live in a very warm climate and wondered if anybody had a take on this. Would apply for boots as well. I thought the Indy stitching might be cooler overall as a boots go? 109 here today:)

    Chipshot, I've noticed no difference in comfort temperature wise between my wingtips, ptb's, and my cap toes. Seeing as its 109 today where your at a pair of suede unlined Aldens sounds like a good option. I like your new moniker specific icon.

    This is actually the "official" sizing advice as per Alden's sizing guidelines for its lasts.

    It's too hot to wear anything at 109. :D

    Thank you my friend. With my wife, it's always a great date. The medallions are great, but wanted to get some wear with my tassels. Much appreciated...

    My fellow Alden enthusiast, I certainly understand your perspective. I have asserted in the past on this thread that tassels are dressy enough to wear with suits and have been met with quite a bit of flack from those that say that tassels are inherently casual. Furthermore, I have also suggested that bluchers can also be worn with suits despite the conventional/traditional view that bluchers should not be used in that manner. In the end I've come to the conclusion that not everyone can be pleased and that attire is simply an individual's means of expression within the confines of an evolving business and professional world. I suppose as long as I'm not too far out there to where people may think I stole someone's dress shoes, I should be ok.

    I appreciate the comments and the compliments. Good day good friend!

    I don't think the double leather sole makes a shoe hotter/sweatier(??). If you're in poor physical shape and the slightly heavier shoes are wearing you down [​IMG], then maybe a lighter single leather sole is for you. I prefer the double leather sole for its support and comfort, even on a 100' day. I'm guessing you're inside in the AC anyways.
