    Thank you sir, and good luck with your hunt.

    The 5512 with pointed crown guards is definitely a great watch for sure.

    How would you guys fill in the below?

    #8: NST Tanker Boot
    Cigar: ???
    Ravello: Cap Toe Day Tripper Boot
    Whiskey: LHS

    I'm interested in answers that are not PTB, chukka, or LWB.

    With whiskey LHS already in that rotation/collection, I'm thinking Cigar medallion cap toe blucher or maybe wingtip boot.

    I saw some love for shell strands a few pages back. Which would you prefer... Burgundy shell strands or Alden for BB medallion cap toe blucher in color 8? I know one is a balmoral and the other a blucher, but indulge me; I'm curious... [​IMG]

    I have the brown shell strands. I sold my alden medallion cap toes when the aes arrived. The shell on the Aldens is superior, but the strands look better.

    Both would be nice, but neither is currently offered. Alden's factory medallion captoe blucher in color 8 - the 2145 - is one of Alden's best looking dress shoes IMO.

    If I had all lwb or wt boot I'd be pretty happy. Moving away from Aldens now though so maybe not too practical


    They do preorders for sure. And when I have, delivery times have actually been earlier than expected and you get surprised by a package at your door


    Wingtip boot? or Alden DC captoe?
