    With a suit? Neither. You want a balmoral shoe, not a blucher (look at the way the laces come together at the bottom on this one as opposed to the others. I like these:

    But you shouldn't be wearing any shoes every day. Every other day, at the most.

    I asked this in the quick questions thread and I received no response:

    Any thoughts on Leather Souls Alden Vintage Indy? Fit pics?

    I am curious about it, especially compared to Leather Souls Alden Ultimate Indy.

    I really like it.

    I'll probably grab some. I would love it in a darker suede. It's probably the one indy boot I love the most.

    Has anyone thought about seeing if we could do another leathersoul Alden for styleforum boot?

    I would love the vintage Indy in a grey / charcoal / dark brown oiled nubuck.

    Could be cool.
