    Alden for J. Crew Longwing Bluchers, item# 18580. I wear progressive lenses now, so without my glasses I use echo location.

    I'd go with the snuff suede (darker) LWB over the camel (lighter) LWB as I do not care much for crepe soles. (Both available presently.) Their calf LWB offerings (tobacco, dark brown, and black) all have double leather soles and are solid choices but overpriced imo ($525). You can find these occasionally on ebay brand new for much less.

    Speaking of LWBs..
    This is my whole (modest) Alden family, consisting predominantly of LWBs [​IMG] I just love this style.
    I dress almost exclusively casually, the cigar LWB w/ dark welt being at the "dressiest" level I may occasionally want to take myself to [​IMG]
    I think it's been about a year now since I first heard of Alden.

    Great looking collection.

    Looks like you've got a good deal of diversity within the Alden brand.

    Beautiful, can you show me more pictures of the Natty CXL? Would love to see how that pairs up with outfits too..

    Despite what the J Crew description says, they're not CXL.

    HAHA - Jeez, just saw them. The picture's pretty awful so it came up as pretty much burgundy and I assumed it was shell. Do you know if this is the same shade as brown they use on the Indy's?



    Thanks - I'm going to take a better look at the snuff - I think the color is more versatile but the single leather sole is a little unfortunate, as I am a fan of the hardier soles :)
