    Basically all Alden shoes can be credibly dressed down with jeans except certain styles really intended for dress (balmoral wingtips or captoes, etc). Of course, many can be dressed up as well. At the end of the day, relative to what most people are wearing, almost any Alden will look "dressier" than normal with casual jeans and t-shirt outfits (most people are wearing converses or whatever with such outfits), but if it is your style, go with it.

    Congrats, they look great! I had a similar experience with a pair of cigar PTBs, in which the finish on the right shoe was "flaking" near the toe crease after the first few weeks. I brought them back to NY shop on Madison where I had purchased them, and they sent them back to Alden to have the surface refinished. Came back looking fantastic(and faster than expected), the finish was like glass. I was pleased, and very happy with the service from those guys as well. But I will agree the crew at TSM is very customer oriented and a pleasure to deal with.

    I love these! Every time I see them I immediately want to put my navy shortwings up for sale and get a pair of these instead.
