    Thanks Chris! This is the AF79 from AoC. I love it. It's getting a lot of use this winter. It's a little snug on me even though its Barrie so I don't wear a boot sock, just normal OTC dress socks. It's primarily a dress boot for me as I am business casual (dress trousers, flannels, odd jacket, etc.). I've worn it with a suit once or twice, but only during inclement weather. It's got a 360 flat welt, so it's a little dressier than a storm welt, but not by much. Great boot all around. Also note it doesn't have brouging on the heel like other WTBs.

    Needed to get a few trousers hemmed, so wore my 975s out with some very casual chinos. First time I've tried this combo. I liked it, wifey not so much...

    That's the one, well said @postal007. This makeup checked off so many boxes on my want list; commando, antique edge and storm welt all in an NST. The pull tabs aren't exactly functional given their tiny size but they don't take away from it either.

    AOM will get them this year without pull tabs. You can put your name down for them. Here's the model:

    my favorite part about this boot is the fact that is has no stitching on the side panels. So clean. So smooth.

    did Alden once upon a time offer an option to get an A/D instead of A/C or B/D? I think they did and the combo last marketing is a carryover from that time
