    Nice combo MrDV, very eye catching. Do all Alden for BB offerings have exposed eyelets?

    Looking to buy my first pair of cordovan shoes and wanted some opinions on a pair of chukkas vs longwings. I want a versatile shoe that can be worn with a suit as well as a pair of jeans.

    Get the PTBs in #8s. It's the most versatile shoe they make. The "Swiss Army Knife" of shoes. I suppose if you must, the Chukka in #8 would work, but personally I can't trust a shoe that doesn't know if it's a boot or a shoe [​IMG]

    I think both of those shoes can pull double duty. I think it may depend on the color also.

    Probably can't tell the difference between PTB and Chukkas with your pant leg down! It just adds a little flair when you flash some ankle!

    Since fall is coming up, I say chukka. Still extremely versatile.
