    Fantastic shot for the summer! It's your LHS images that have me strongly considering adding the LHS to my rotation. I think they look particularly nice in the lighter shell colors as pictured above.

    I completely agree. I think my most worn Alden is actually the 986. I know it gets over looked for more rare models but when I cannot decide which shoe to wear to a meeting, out to dinner, etc. I simply go with the 986. I think it is such a versatile shoe. I also love what Tom at LS did recently having it re-soled with a natural welt and a red Dainite sole.
    I would love to add a cigar version to my collection.

    nephew,
    I hope the break in method will provide the results you are looking for.

    Nothing wrong with a #8 LHS, but I agree that the LHS is especially nice in cigar, ravello, or whiskey.

    Friday means whiskey, and whiskey means Bourbon, but since this is a thread about Alden shoes, here are my gunboats, with a bit of a burnished look (denim = RRL, low straight, Raw)
