    Those look great Alcibiades. Definitely worthy of Leffot's posting.

    Haven't posted much this summer as I've been I Europe for the past month, just getting some free time to burn here and there, my two cents...

    I have mostly Alden footwear, but do have a number of AEs that I quite like. My favorite?

    I own a chocolate pair of AE Seven Mondavio's that are fantastic. Despite all my Alden's and having four pairs with me in Europe, the shoe I go to the most, the Strandmok in tan suede. I also like my black Rutledge that I picked up at the outlet store.

    For shell, it's Alden - for calf, I'm not likely to buy Alden shoes....

    Cheers,
    BN

    I had to "unfollow" because of all the obnoxious food selfies.

    Allen edmonds are very nice I've owned about 10 pairs. I haven't bought a single pair since I discovered Aldens.

    If I buy Alden shell WT boot, I'm almost positive it will be on Plaza. Is that a boot I can wear with denim and nicer slacks?

    I like the Barrie on commando, but it doesn't have the same versatility.

    I own the Plaza WT boot on commando in Color 8, from J. Gilbert, and it is my favorite Alden boot. (And I own a fair number of exotics: Color 4 captoe boot, Ravello WT boot, Cigar Pitt boot, Whiskey chukka boot, etc.)

    Versatile and works with everything except suits IMO.

    I am certainly in the vast minority here, but I just can't do shiny shoes, sockless with shorts. I've tried my whiskey LHS sockless, and just can't pull it off. Maybe it's b/c I live in Los Angeles, and we're not a preppy town. Bless you all.

    These look great! Is that the recent Citi Shoes run?

    I agree with pretty much all of this. Most of my AE shell has been at the $299-$399 range and I feel like they offer amazing value at that price point.

    Here are my style preferences so far, though will likely change over time:
    AE Dundee Chukka
    AE Strand
    AE McAllister
    Alden PTB
    Alden LWB



    I really prefer the look of my truffle cordovan McAllisters compared to the Alden shortwing.

    I'm still deciding between the WT or NST color 8 boot on Plaza. I have too many Indy/NSTs, so I'm leaning WT.

    Thanks for updating this. Would be better if it were more accessible.

    +1. hard to do shiny shoes, sockless with shorts in san diego as well. I will get there with time.

    thank you ryden. yes recent purchase from citi. difficult for me to pass on alpine + nst + brass + commando.

    really nice examples, your brown strands and mcallisters look great.
