    My new whiskey chukkas! Incredible.

    Sorry for the blurry photo, but you get the idea.

    Whoever said they don't look good with denim was wrong in my opinion!

    Whoa, those buckle-chukka's are incredible, and are probably the only black shell cordovan shoe I would consider buying.

    Are there any online retailers that stock a selection of Alden balmorals (preferably in shell cordovan) in a 3E?

    Or will i have to resort to special ordering? Thanks.

    FYI: Alden DC has Wing Tip Bal's in Whiskey Shell Cordovan on I believe the Tremont Last. I picked up the last 10D. There were two 10.5 D's left when I left late yesterday afternoon. I have no pictures yet.

    I believe they also have Cigar Shell Chukka's and some stuff in Revello that I was not interested in. I always work with Joe Mancuso and he is great.

    Contemplating a first purchase of some Aldens. Don't have $600 to get what I want but just tried on a pair of the Shell Cordovan Plain Toe Bluchers Model 990, Barrie last, that fit well and were on sale for half price.

    This is the shoe:

    Is there anyone who has these shoes and can offer thoughts on what you commonly wear them with, whether you love them, etc.? Could they be worn with a suit or are they too casual?

    Thanks for the guidance and advice.
