    Thank you Spiff for your words of encouragement! I do feel more complete with the 986, as an Alden enthusiast. I only own 3 AE and each are solid in construction, comfortable, and look good. However, I can not say that for many AE. (No offense intended to our AE enthusiasts on this thread) Nevertheless, a nice, made in the US, more affordable alternative to Alden.

    Curious what AE you own?

    I've ordered two pairs(Neumok and Maccallisters) and was not impressed with the finish and comfort and ended up returning them.

    Very nice start to a Monday Johnniegold. I like the nice rolls you've got going on there.

    Good point about the 563. That certainly does complicate things and cause me to reconsider my argument.
