    Such a great lookin' boot. Headed out to the bay area in two weeks...so tempted to pick up something like this when I'm there.
    I really shouldn't...but it's calling my name...

    Regardless, I'm definitely stopping by to check out Alden SF in person.

    Both boots are awesome. I may have to call Alden SF about these. I need more color 8, and fall is 1 month away...

    Jim at Alden SF is great to work with.

    I have the captoe boot in color 8 - mine are on the Grant Last from TSM. I was hesitant at first to buy them (wondering if they would get enough use). I'm very happy with them - and they can be dressed up or down quite easily. :slayer:

    The wt boots are great as well.

    Correct.

    As I type they are on my feet - Ravello.

    I was indifferent to chukkas (regardless of maker) until I acquired my first Alden shell chukka (cigar). I liked them so much it led to the rainbow (and a lighter wallet!!), and the rest is history .....

    They are very versatile. I dress them up with everything short of suits, and also dress them down with jeans, etc. With pant leg down they look just like the ptb.

    Since you already have 2 pairs of chukkas, I would recommend something a little different such as an LWB. Ideally Cigar or Whiskey would be great if you can find it in stock in your size somewhere. Or if you want to stick with boots, then a wingtip boot would be a nice choice.
