    Don L: awesome shade of whiskey. How old are they and where did you buy them, if I may ask...

    I picked up a whiskey LWB from their website about 2 weeks ago and it's a very similar darker shade. Probably from the same batch...very happy with them.

    1) I appear to be in the minority on this, but I have no issue wearing antique edging with cigar when it comes to many models (this Atom, NST, even LWB). When I owned the color 4 Atom, I viewed it as a dress shoe... The single sole and tremont last helped with that as well

    2) If you want a brown wingtip, a no brainer is the Marlow wingtip

    I wear chukka boots for travel... in and out (also carry one of those small shoehorns in your carry-on luggage).

    yes and yes

    The 2145 is one of Alden's most attractive dress shoes.

    Nice pick-up.

    Any consensus on sizing of the Alden for BB cordovan PTB versus Barrie (it's on the M58 last, right)?

    Also, how casually do you think the Alden for BB #8 cap toe blucher can be worn? Since I mainly wear denim and chinos, I think I'd be better off with a cap toe blucher boot than a shoe, but I'd be curious to get some input.

    This is kind of like the Tremont - in that some go TTS; some go down 1/2 size (like with Barrie). For me (TTS 9.5D), a 9.5D in the M58 was too roomy - but a 9.5C is perfect.

    Thanks. I guess the other issue is they don't seem to have many sizes of this model on the website. I guess it can't hurt to call.

    No need to post that. These POV "urinal shots" are bad enough as it is.
