    Here you go. This pic is a couple of months old and I have quite a few boots in my rotation so I may wear a pair once every three weeks or so. That's why they probably don't look too beat up. But I do try to take care of my footwear.

    I've never had the privilege of seeing it 'in the flesh', but thought I'd share these pics that I found for the others among us who have not been so fortunate.

    Oh man, Pebble Grain! Why does Alden spoil the Japanese while depriving their fellow Americans?

    More pics of the same shoe above.

    Edit: Here is the Lakota #4 for comparison purposes.

    looks kind of similar to the 3rd pic, but not identical.

    Pretty much any Alden retailer

    www.theshoemart.com/

    www.aldenshop.com/
    Once every 3 weeks?

    That sounds like one hell of an extensive line-up, Sir.

    Natty chromexcel is pretty cool, but hands down, the J Crew color 8 Cap toe boot should be the choice (imho). However, I suppose it depends on what your brother wants to wear with this first Alden boots. The J Crew boot is much more versatile; it dresses up much better than Natty Chrmxl, and can be worn casually as well. If he's looking for a casual more rugged look, the PT boot may be a better choice.

    the j. crew boot seems/looks much sleeker than a barrie last, it feels narrower than other barrie last shoes i own, especially in the toe box, but the length is the same.

    It was on the Aberdeen, but it seemed pointier, almost like how the tassel mocs look different than a normal Aberdeen oxford even though they're on the same last.

    Looking at all those old AoC pictures also reminded me of how much more attention used to be paid to the quality of the shoes. It's quite sad how much less of a shoe they are now compared to even 20 years ago. Such is life.

    Is the NRO snuff suede PTB like the Epaulet, since they're both Leydon? Any differences?

    my small shell collection. put some saphir on the two #8 pair while watching some college bball this afternoon. i took some photos in direct sunlight to show how much burgundy comes out. these pics make me realize i'm in need of some dark edge dressing. being in Seattle, i do not shy away from wearing in the rain. i had some #8 lwb at one point but they didn't fit in my wardrobe very well. i'm more than satisfied with these.

    unlined ptb - crease like crazy
    plain toe boot, plaza - probably my fav
    black cordo cap toe

    Suede PTB owners... How should the initial fit be. Mine feel like they fit well in the toebox with just a bit of heelslip. I cannot imagine a half size down would fit but wanted to ask my fellow nuts. These are on the Barrie and I went with the same size as my Barrie boots
