    Sweet snag. That's like an Ebay dream. Congrats - you'll love them


    For Color 8 I use Saphir Bordeaux.


    This. A lot of it has to do w/ personal taste and severity of wear, but try to err on the side of "less is more."

    A brand new pair of Cigar longwings, mail ordered from the Alden Shop. I was surprised they didn't have stacked soles, but I prefer these plain ones.

    Alright guys im thinking of getting another pair of alden... but not sure which one.. Im trying to get one pair which is versatile enough to pair it with denim,chinos,and suits and so..

    The Cigar SWB or LWB (epaulet makeup) or the Daytripperboot(ravello)?

    or any other pair you guys recommend?

    The two navy suedes side by side

    I think I will keep both. Indy I can wear with light denim, chinos, etc. Chukkas I can wear with lightweight grey wool pants, seersucker, shorts, etc. I really like how the stitching on the indy matches the welt and how the red brick sole (which is not as red as some of the McNairy shoes you see) balances it. I also like the tan laces on the chukka...
