    The color on these is stunning! What an amazing shade. Great boots my friend!

    I don't reach for this boot enough! A definite grail boot that I'm afraid to scuff up. Your picture shows how nice these look in use. I might have to break these out tomorrow!



    I love this! Great boots! On commando with hooks? Perfect makeup - where are they from? The shade on these is killer.

    I was wondering if the group would mind helping me make up my mind on the next shoes I will buy. I want something versatile (can be worn with biz casual, suit and jeans as well). I'm heavily leaning towards the Alden 990 Color 8. I love the simplicity of the plain toe but am worried it makes my foot look to big. Just wanted to get some thoughts from the group on the 990 and/or anything else you think would be a good choice. This will be my first paid of Shell cordovan shoes.

    I don't see how you'd go wrong with the 990 PTB. They are indeed a roomier (especially in width) shoe. They are a great business casual shoe and fit the bill just right. For something more dressy I assume an Aberdeen or Van Last shoe would be in order but that's not to say that you can say dress them with a suit.

    Citishoes and Context both offer color 8 NST boots. TSM does as well but they're on a different last, IIRC.

    Granted, my suede Dovers are a different cut, color, and vibe, but they're still Barrie plain toes. I'm an E width, and going into the acquisition, I expected my shoes to end up a lot blobbier than they actually are. IMO YMMV etc. you'll be fine, especially relative to the general population. If your frame of reference changes from staring at a lot of sleeker lasts, well...[​IMG]

    Beautiful coloring.

    If not the 990, the 975 is great or the 4060 for a boot option

    Thanks. Yeah TSM is on Aberdeen.

    Context was out of stock, but Citishoes and Madison appear to have them.

    Thanks again!
