    I like the idea of having a shoe that I could wear practically every day, versatile enough to wear with anything from slim denim to rolled chinos to trousers. Which would you choose? Alden [​IMG] Tricker's [​IMG]

    I don't think suede will withstand the beating I have in mind for these. I'm leaning toward the aldens because I think the cordovan will continue to look better with age and because of the beauty in its simple design. May end up going with the #8, which would be closer to my comfort zone of brown and may be a more interesting color overall.

    No8 would be much more versatile than black. Suede is surprisingly tough though...

    Should I buy these? I've been looking for a nice black boot that can be used for work or casual drinking/going to shows. Or should I be good and buy my wifey a better TV or baby dresser? I have to consider it will be 80 degrees here by the end of this week, moving slowly to the 90's. These are Alden for Blackbird Ballard and run about $650 [​IMG] http://uptownseb.tumblr.com/tagged/C...y_Milkman_Boot

    i hate that thin sole, especially on dbs. but that's probably why you like them, so go ahead.
