    anyone have any pictures of the SF plaza last boot with some denim? Trying to decide between those and the cap toe dress boot (pictures of those would be great too)...

    Whoa, those buckle-chukka's are incredible, and are probably the only black shell cordovan shoe I would consider buying.

    Are there any online retailers that stock a selection of Alden balmorals (preferably in shell cordovan) in a 3E?

    Or will i have to resort to special ordering? Thanks.

    FYI: Alden DC has Wing Tip Bal's in Whiskey Shell Cordovan on I believe the Tremont Last. I picked up the last 10D. There were two 10.5 D's left when I left late yesterday afternoon. I have no pictures yet.

    I believe they also have Cigar Shell Chukka's and some stuff in Revello that I was not interested in. I always work with Joe Mancuso and he is great.

    Contemplating a first purchase of some Aldens. Don't have $600 to get what I want but just tried on a pair of the Shell Cordovan Plain Toe Bluchers Model 990, Barrie last, that fit well and were on sale for half price.

    This is the shoe:

    Is there anyone who has these shoes and can offer thoughts on what you commonly wear them with, whether you love them, etc.? Could they be worn with a suit or are they too casual?

    Thanks for the guidance and advice.
