    thank you hill.
    thanks for the kind words rtp. aldens do help me feel better about going to work in the mornings. no one else at work notices them much anymore, but I feel happy wearing them.

    I very much agree with the wingtip comment, but not so much with the Leydon chukka. I don't care for sleekness in a very casual shoe, but that's just me.

    Black shell is great. The shine is unmatched. Wore my black shell Alden for BB tassels today. A wonderful shoe. :slayer:

    The C&J for RL dark brown shell is very nice. I own the Marlow and Lindrick. My tassels are to arrive tomorrow. Picked them up the last day of the 25% off sale. :nodding:

    This is my first Alden. Brown-calf wingtip boots with commando sole.
    Since it's the first pair, i need to risk ordering same size as my other boots, it turns out perfect fit to me.
    Let me save up for a while, i'll go for the Shell's.

    Remember that different lasts fit very differently, so the same size in a different last may not fit the same at all.

    I love the Leydon, and wish Alden used it more, especially with suede offerings. It only looks sleek compared to a Barrie shoe or boot; if you set a Leydon lasted shoe next to something that's actually sleek (i.e. something not made by Alden), then it looks pretty normal for a casual shoe. Also I'm biased because so far Leydon has been the best fitting last for my foot :)

    Great looking boots. Thanks for posting photos.
    I've always liked this saddle makeup. Good looking combination.
