    Is there any difference other than the stitching pattern on the back of the heel, between the BB tassel moc and the standard Alden tassel moc? Are both on the aberdeen last? Any recommendations between the two? Wanting to pick up a pair of color 8 in either version. Thanks in advance...

    It was tan paste. If I had to guess, I would think brown paste would go with the cigar shell.

    My first thought was APC Harris tweed jacket too.
    Looks good.

    On the CTA
    

    Agreed. I bought a pair of color 8 LWBs and wasn't so sure about them at first. After a handful of wearings, I really started to like them and I like them more each time I wear them. Making me think a black LWB would be a good purchase. And they look SO good with dark jeans.



    Thank you for posting. I have been considering a pair like thisbut wanted to see how they looked with some wear.

    when folks use an insole, do you remove the alden heel pad?

    (intrigued as I have a roomy shoe problem - see sig. tongue pad helps some)

    An ebayer gave me a deal I couldn't refuse; RL's Marlow short wingtip, NIB. I know, I need to expand beyond the blucher. That will be my New Year's resolution!
