    ReppTiePrepster: I actually haven't figured out how I want to execute the use of these shoes. I like Uncle's advice... wear what you like with them, stare at the mirror, and repeatedly tell yourself, this works for me.

    Alcibiades: My whiskey shortwings are among my least worn shoes, but every time I wear them, I love them, so I can't even think about selling them. I need to force myself to wear them more. I'm gonna get a good pair of olive chinos for the fall, I think whiskey shoes go well with them


    I have been in this boat, and I have actually sold some (not all) whiskey models. I don't regret it. My style of dress just doesn't call for tan footwear very often.

    I still have a few whiskeys (love the LHS), but, beyond the LHS, the others get very little wear.

    I do concede that whiskey, however, is unique.

    100 yrs: Color #8 Plain Toe Boot, Plaza Last on a drizzly day in Seattle

    I have this boot. In terms of demonstrating the striking beauty of Alden's color 8, this boot has no superior.

    And, from what I have seen, you have pulled it off quite well. :D I have no doubt that many would get plenty of use from whiskey models - just not me, save for the LHS which I wore a decent amount this summer, and mostly with shorts.

    I wear my whisky short wings with a grey suit every other week. They are very easy to pair. Light and mid grey tones blend very well with these shoes. I also have worn them with navy chinos quite regularly. Hope this helps.

    That's just working sazon. Your socks are almost as impressive as your shoes. Almost. Very well played.
