    It's personal preference. Yes I am fanatical about shoes...but they are "just shoes".

    I'm VERY surprised that tifosi is even considering something with out STITCHING on the toes :rotflmao:

    You can't go wrong with anything in #8

    I agree with anything in # 8 would be a great choice. I never really thought about the chukka but as tifosi mentioned fall is right around the corner and the it would be a niice option to have. I think i have to try them both on to see what looks best

    Pick one:

    Alden for BB WT Color 8
    Unlined PTB Color 8

    Mostly for pants,grey suits and chinos,(comfort is important)

    I don't have any color 8 shoes and already have LWB in other colors so not interested in the 975.

    Thanks.

    Trying to catalogue the various Color 8 Indy boots available...

    Alden NYC - double leather sole, storm welt with close heel, speedhooks
    Alden SF - waterlock sole, Barrie last, unsure about welt/eyelets
    Alden DC - ?
    The Shoe Mart - commando sole, 360 storm reverse welt, all eyelets

    Any others?

    Looking for a color 8 boot with dark edging and considering an Indy (I had too many boots with antique edging and want to diversify a bit). Any other suggestions are appreciated...

    Unlined #8 PTB for me. Are there any of these available right now? I want a pair.

    Very difficult choice. I could go grudgingly with the WT but you can't go wrong with either choice. I have the WT and I will add a PTB (not sure if unlined or not) within the next year
