    Typical width is C/E though. My question was more about atypical combination of ball/heel widths.

    Also, anyone have that link to the spreadsheet with model numbers decoded? I can't find it.

    [email protected], my guess would be Aberdeen. Someone else may be able to confirm or clarify.

    I think you came out on top here. The color 8 cap toe boot is fantastic.

    +1. Typically models that start with 22 = Aberdeen last

    1) Offers the clean look of a plain toe with a bit of the versatility of a boot
    2) Easy to get on and off like loafers (great for traveling)
    3) The bit can be a bit looser (which could be a minus depending on your point of view)
    4) Looks equally good with chinos and denim. Suede versions look OK with shorts (some of Alden's boots, like Indys, don't look as good with chinos)
    5) More of an "all year" boot as opposed to some of the Alden high boots, which can get a bit heavy in the summer

    I have three chukkas (whiskey cordovan, brown chromexcel and navy suede) and am considering adding more. These boots get more wear then my Indy boots (whiskey cordovan, classic brown leather Indy and milkshake suede)

    You win. Color #8 over black shell in those would be my choice every time. Enjoy them!

    Selling a pair of tobacco longwings in order to finance another pair of Aldens. I'm thinking color 4 wingtip boots. Anybody have any input?

    Anyone know where I can find a pair of the Ravello shortwings in 10.5 D? I'm assuming they are on the Aberdeen last. Leather Soul had them a while ago, but not sure if they're coming back.
