    Regarding the Alden bb wingtip, someone mentioned that like the other BB offerings, the last used is different from standard BB offerings. This shoe looks like plaza last but fits alot like Tremont last. I take a 12 in plaza, 11.5c Barrie, 11.5 grant, 12 Aberdeen, 12e Leydon, 11.5 Tremont, 11.5 BB wingtip

    A true testament to why an Alden noob would be utterly confused as to what size to get. :nodding:

    I'm looking for a black shell shoe that can be both somewhat dressy (suits) and casual enough for khakis and a blazer. I have narrowed it down to a PTB (9901) and a straight tip blucher (2161). I also considered the perforated Cap Toe Bal, but I'm not sure it would be as versatile. Any thoughts, suggestions, or other options? Thanks in advance!

    Your posts are very valuable as they show off the dressier uses of Alden shoes

    What are your thoughts on a black cap toe blucher boot or NST shoe or boot?

    I haven't purchased boots yet. I guess i'm open to the idea. I like J Crew's color 8 Perf cap Toe boot. I think the NST might be too casual, but not sure.
