    Those came out nice. FWIW, AE's chili edge dressing would serve you well in the future. I use it on essentially all of my shoes and boots with antique edging.

    I have and wear both styles. Each is a good choice. Comes down to personal preference.

    IMO, the PTB is probably easier to wear casually.

    I concur - nicely done RTP.

    The black shell LWB was my first Alden shell LWB. I paid full retail price for it, and I don't regret it for a minute.

    Thank you my friend! The pic of the PTB is from when they were brand new; they now have some nice character with a little creasing. The LWB has some wear and some minor creasing also. With about ten bluchers in the rotation, they all tend to remain looking fairly new. I also baby them a little bit also.
    Thank you my friend for the kind words! No, I'm 10D. The PTB is a little narrower than the LWB. Additionally, if you're looking for a sleeker looking PTB, I would go with the Alden for BB PTB, if you don't mind the eyelets. With a sleeker last and no 360' storm welt, it looks much dressier. I probably would have gone with it, but I found the 990 and 9901 with significant discounts (about $490 each shipping included and no tax). Best of luck...

    Were the Tankers available in shell other than #8? Love split toes.

    Just sent my Whiskey LHS I purchased on ebay to Alden to be recrafted, took pics so will have before and after.

    Nice collection, especially the whiskey boot. Wish I could figure out how to post pics without the need for cloud,URL. If u sell its just a simple upload button ... Search your device and upload. I must be retarded... New pad
