    Can you try them on? If so go with what fits best.
    If not go with your gut feeling.

    Unfortunately, no.
    It would be a VERY long distance, no returns possible, purchase.

    Another great pair of boots. Alden's seem to be expensive but worth it too. [​IMG]

    Thanks man. Definitely a good buy and I'm happy that I shelled out for the Aldens.

    Oh I'm sure bud. They look awesome and I'm sure extremely comfortable too. Nice insoles I bet. Not to mention they will last forever. :)

    I've never worn either, but as someone who was close to pulling the trigger on the Islays, I just looked up the AS Hannover and I find that I definitely prefer the look of the Hannover to the Islay. I am actually a complete neophyte when it comes to AS - I think I had always thought they were even more expensive than CJ. Either way, the Hannover looks great - I assume it's a good quality boot as well.

    First Viberg for me (Service Boots of course)..

    I'm very happy with them as a casual boot. Extremely sturdy and substantial feeling.

    @europrep Excellent. Do you wear your chukkas with a sportcoat or just trousers and a shirt?

    Trousers and shirt for me mostly. Could depend on the chukkas also. Some are a bit more casual than others.
