    Well I just bought a pair of captoe #8 with all eyelets that I plan to wear to work. I wore them for about 2 or so hours at the office and I would not hesitate to wear them all day. That is my only experience.

    As far as the captoe and chukka. I would have both with no issues. I actually have a plain toe and a chukka in the exact same make-up in the works. Still 2 totally different shoes. IMHO

    I cant speak to shin fatigue but I will say I see no redundancy in shell #8 in a chukka and captoe boot. Both have their own unique style and color #8 is the king for a reason.

    At the very least it's fun to poke around the bolts of fabric at the Andover Shop. But yes, salty attitudes abound there to say the least.

    And, if we're just talking about general Boston / Cambridge men's shops deserving of visits, I'd also head up to Drinkwater's between Porter / Davis.

    Finally, I totally forgot earlier, but Ball and Buck does carry some Alden models now (three to four tops). I was surprised by that when I was in town and dropped in a couple weeks back.

    I meant to include this post in the reply above. Tampatravel was right on the money. B&B has Alden, just not on the internet.

    Called Citishoes and the closest they had to my size in a Cigar PTB or NST was a 7.5E and 9.5E respectively. Oh well. The hunt continues.

    PSA Jcrew has a navy cxl ptb up on their site, along with a navy wingtip suede boot and two tone, suede and leather brown lwb.

    There's also a white suede LWB that I don't recall seeing before. They just announced a new 25% off code, but of course Alden is excluded.

    Pretty much everything is back ordered, but expected ship is Sep 2nd, so not terrible.

    edwinl: Anyone found themselves having to go a half size up on the brannock size for the Aberdeen last? Trying to figure out if a pair slightly bigger than my usual would fit.

    Not me. I find the Aberdeen is TTS.
