    @ Rydenfan - The Cigar PTBs tend to go best with casual attire (denim) because of the light/antique edge. Sounds like a good match for you. They are more difficult to pair with a suit, imo. I would go for it! [​IMG]

    I think there is absolutely no reason why this wouldn't work. PTB's are versatile enough to be able to be dressed up to wear with a suit, but they are more casual first by nature.

    People wear their PTBs suits, slacks and jeans. The cigar PTB I think works really well with denim because of the antique sole. Give it a shot.

    Thanks Roguls. Yep, calf, LeatherSoul build. They are my favorite Alden build, black on black on black is perfect, and the sole is the smartest sole going in my opinion, understated and feels great to walk on. I really wish a 10 or 10.5 would pop up, but I must sell instead (unless a buzz rickson peacoat size 40 spoke up)

    Alden-of-Carmel makes the exact same build, and they have your size.

    I am as lazy as they come for shoe care and I believe you should wear your shoes the way you want to since you paid for them, but it seems to me as if you could get a pair of calf LWBs to look like this just as easily and at less cost. Motivates me to put a little work into a few pairs of shell I've been wearing recently.

    There's a Plaza-last chukka? Seems like an unusual combination.
