I found these yesterday. $9
Stunning. I'm familiar with the boning technique for shell, but what does 'intended spot' mean? dimpled?

The difference in stitching is actually pretty pronounced. I much prefer the stitching on the 40x, which seems somehow...faster.

Also does anyone know if there are any difference? I know the JCrew version has leather lining, not sure about the regular Chromexel Alden since my original 405 isn't leather lined. I put this question to a SA in the Alden...

They look terrible when paired with a suit, imo. The shape and leather quality make them seem okay--as long as you remain standing and you can't see the tops of the boots. These pics show how loony they look as soon as you sit down and expose the elastic and, worse, the pull tabs...
I think you open yourself up to ridicule if you dress the way he does in the above pics while writing books about clothing and style. It's like a mechanic driving a noisy jalopy with a crooked fender and the muffler dragging on the ground.

The Roy Boot with the pull up leather would be a nicer boot and of better value, imo, but some don't like the eyelets or the wide Barrie last. I like both...
That does look like a good, simple boot. The leydon looks a bit sleeker than the barrie if thats what you're after. And the dark brown calf is v. nice...I saw this color for the first time at the Alden Shop yesterday and I was impressed.
