    Indeed, I do get suited & booted at least 3 times per week: PT boots, cap toe boots, and WT boots.

    Will do. At the moment, I have an attachment to them and I am just going to put them aside. My first pair of shell tassel loafers served me for over 14 years and I wore them several times a week. Not sure I can let these go.

    I have the Alden for BB tassels in color 8 and I like them.

    Your new ones, which turned out great, are quite similar - :D - so I would suggest you get a different model.

    A captoe blucher boot on a leather sole is easily more formal than the LHS. Even if said boot had a commando sole I would consider it more formal than the LHS.

    Yep. I can't think of a single situation where I could wear LHS with a suit and not feel out of place. With boots on the other hand, barring black-tie events, I can't think of a situation where a leather or dainite soled boot wouldn't be just as appropriate as shoes, assuming it's a sleek enough boot. This is especially true of balmoral boots, but even cap-toe blucher boots.

    Thanks, SevenFold. I tend to agree, but I am going to put this decision off for a while.
