    Bah, why do I have such an issue with cordovan penny loafers? Alden or RL, I just can't fit into them without pain somewhere. Both companies' tassel loafers fit me fine...

    I finally broke and ordered the Cordovan LHS loafers from Unionmade.... if they fit perfectly, then the lady is going to be doing some yelling as to why I need more shoes.

    "High boots" and chukka boots

    Whiskey
    Chukka (Alden Madison) and Indy Boot (Alden DC - I will likely keep this boot now)
    [​IMG]

    Chromexcel
    Chukka and Jumper Boot (both from Leather Soul)
    (Great for looking sharp in wet weather with no worries)
    [​IMG]

    Cigar
    Chukka (Alden Madison) and Captoe Boot (Alden DC)
    (Low lighting as I took these a few minutes ago, but the chukka is lighter than the captoe despite it being newer, cigar is ligher in recent months. The captoe still may be my favorite Alden though, it is certainly my favorite boot)
    [​IMG]

    The cigar captoe boot is highly versatile despite it being on a commando sole (wore it with flannels a few times in the winter). I will imagine the captoe chromexcel will be a bit more versatile than I expect as well. The Indy shape is more of a true work boot.

    Now I can be patient and wait for the right ravello or color 8 makeup to pop up... Almost done with Alden boots (I also have an calfskin Indy on commando soles for foul weather / muddy tailgates / etc)

    Great looking collection! Wise decision to keep the whiskey Indy.

    I like crepe soles, but only on certain (casual) styles. It just doesn't seem right on a cap toe spectator with a medallion.

    I hate to quote myself so much but I wanted to complete the set. Last but certainly not least: cigars in the morning

    I stumbled across this picture. I remember back in the day when Adam at AoC did at least one model with the exaggerated pinking and large punch holes like these have. It's sort of a retro look that I think it looks great on the right model. I'd love to see someone do it again.
