If you are trying to go with a dress boot, the NST with the darker edge is more formal than the Plaza Medallion CT Boots. The Plaza Boot is definitely a lot more unique whereas you can get that NST Boot relatively easily. Frankly, either way you are in a win-win situation. Also, you can darken the edges and welt rather easily on the Plaza Boot if you wanted to dress it up even more. Most consider the Plaza due to the more chiseled toe to be Alden's most formal last, especially since their Black Patent Leather Dress Balmoral is on the Plaza Last.
They are looking absolutely lovely.
Your Whiskey PTBs are looking great and even better with those well paired slacks. -Mike
Him and I both. Looking good!
So I went on Grailed due to my man Burzan the Alden enabler in my life much love. I was split towards Longwings and Wingtips but I wear a lot of denim so I pushed towards Longwings.
$235. Including the shoe trees and shipping.

Congrats on your purchase. Sounds like you made the right choice and it sounds like you got a good deal. Enjoy them in good health.
Looking good Ben. Nice boots and nice combo. That's some heavy denim. -Mike
@BenLeaman Surprised the repeated shock from the impact of the axe into the trees doesn't affect the GS's accuracy...
If you are itching for a reasonably priced natty shell LWB, here ya go. Not Alden, but for the cost...solid option.
not a bad price with the 20% off.
there's too much vamp space though
I agree about the vamp.
A little snowy today, so Color 8 WTBs
Maiden voyage. That whole one-in-one-out didn't last through 2016.
Thanks, it's a favorite combo of mine.
3/5 of the year denim, things get awfully sticky during those other 2/5!
Nothing can affect the GS accuracy! Spring Drive FTMFW!
Too HOT to spoil !
Alden of Madison?
