    Michigan Planner is taking names and kicking ass. And his wallet has suffered a beatdown as well. :slayer:

    Very nice.

    After seeing these photos, i've decided i'm in dire need of a straight cap toe shoe/boot. I have the whiskey balls from alden NYC but that's it, and that grant boot in #8 looks amazing.

    I stil think that the straigt tip blucher is an amazing shoe--the best stock shoe in my opinion. that in #8 with antique edge and welt would b:slayer:e

    perhaps a b nelson trip is in order....

    I took advantage of the 20% off promo and bought a pair of No. 8 pert tip boots (which they call cap toe), my confirmation said they would ship the end of this month, but received an update a couple days later that the order has been delayed and they now expect shipment in late March...LOL... that's the Alden world...

    Agreed.

    The Alden for BB captoe blucher (straight tip) in color 8 is one of my favorite Aldens. I'm not a huge fan of color 8 with antique edging though. I recently converted two of my color 8 models with antique edging to color 8 with black edging - 6 eyelet NST on Plaza, and tassel on Aberdeen. I prefer the black edging.

    But there seems to be plenty of gents who like the antique edging ......

    Typically Alden's shell captoe balmorals are on the Hampton last, so it could be tough finding such a picture. But if one is out there, I'd like to see it too.
