I would like to buy a pair of Alden wingtips, preferably in a tan-ish color with double soles, but I am having a lot of trouble deciding which ones. It seems that a mixture of all three is ideal for me, but I can only pick one
. Does anyone have any pictures of all of the Alden colors and last examples irl? I am wondering if the colors on these sites are saturated and look different in person. And before you suggest, I HAVE used the search function an google, but cannot seem to find what I'm looking for. Here are the three;

Nice Color (+1), Double Sole (+1), Longwing (-2)

Single Sole (-1), Black Painted Sole (-1)

Single Sole (-1), Color possibly too red??

That picture of lasts/colors is towards the last third of the "Official Alden Thread", which I just slogged through over the weekend. I'd try to find it for you and link it but don't have the strength. In any case, you have to look at the shoes you like in person. Don't trust your internet eyes.

There is no substitute for this, especially if you're not familiar with the colors the brand offers.
