    None of my two eyelet shell chukkas are too loose. Some find that to be the case, but not all.

    I'm considering a Suede Tassel. Already have #8 and have plans for Cigar Tassels, but thinking about suede in addition.

    I haven't bought a pair of calf shoes since I got my first pair of shells. That was 8 shoe purchases ago. I barely wear my calf shoes anymore, but wore a pair on Wednesday due to the threat of inclement weather. I have Swims, but just think of them as fit for occasions when I get caught in a bind. If I'm sure it will rain/snow I leave the shell at home.

    That is a shame. I would truly like to own a pair, but I have not found a comfortable size on that last.

    All of my Aldens were bought online. The only somewhat local place I have is LSBH.

    I don't (yet) own a pair of these, but I'd definitely wear them with jeans if I did.

    Absolutely. JGilbert's plaza lasted color 8 boot on the commando sole is my favorite high boot make up. I have various models in that make up. And I wear them all with jeans, and of course with many other things as well.

    Good advice here.

    I wear my snuff suede unlined pubs without socks in the summer all the time.
