    To be clear, I am not a "balmoral only" guy when it comes to suits. For me, I just happen to find this shoe too casual for a suit, particulalry when it has antigue edging. This is not to say I find all ptb's too casual for suits (I don't).

    Others may see it differently - I have no problem with that. To your point about 98%, I will take it one step further: 98% of men don't even know the difference between a blucher and balmoral, let alone have an opinion on whether one or the other, or both, should be paired with suits. :D

    I thought that 98% of men were on Styleforum.

    New Aldens at J Crew.
    1) One preforated captoe boot in pebble grain leather on commando sole (basically a pebble grain jumper on commando)
    2) The other picture shows what looks like a tan suede norweigan split toe boot (all eyelets) on an Indy cork sole. However, the description of the boot is for the "hummus" dark suede boot on a red brick sole that has been posted a few times here.

    On the CTA
    If the picture on JCrew is correct and not the description, I'm really thinking about getting that suede NST.

    Sounds like the title of a really bad SF thread.

    Wicked excited that my Alden's came in today. Thanks for all the useful posts. It really helped in researching the perfect boot. Sizing down was key. I went for the J Crew collaboration boot.
