    The tan suede LWB is probably in my top 5 favorite pairs. I wear it with jeans, navy chinos, a cotton suit, and shorts of all kinds (when I wear it with shorts, I have no show socks). Perfect shoe for me from April through September. I wear it more than almost all of my cordovan models

    I am thinking about the classic AF53 from Alden of Carmel... I really like Trubalance last for casual weekend wear with denim and chinos. Owners, where does this model rank in your collection?

    I'm thinking of placing an order with 5 Guys later.

    I usually rub a couple fries on my shells, if I happen to be wearing a pair when I go there. Leaves a nice smelling residue and quite a glow.

    I find their peanut shells a good substitute for deer bone.

    Great idea - I'm going to give my deer bone to the dog, who likes to lick my shells when I get back from 5 Guys.

    I've had to replace 3 deer bones thus far. My dogs have a penchant for gnawing them.
    Moral of the story, I need to be more careful.

    I thought you had said, 'morsel' of the story at first. Try the peanut shells - much cheaper.

    (and I meant 'lick', not 'like')

    I did have a typo before which read morsl instead of moral...
    Also, I believe that 5 Guys is now top of the list for dinner now!

    +1 These are one of my most worn pairs of Aldens, I'd recommend them to anyone looking to get in on the pre-order with Leffot.
