Preordered the Leffot Cooney boots... Alden NYC is holding a pair of black Indy calfskin boots, in still undecided on those - owners, how much do you wear them? Next up are a dressy color 8 blucher, a black blucher (I don't see the Leather Soul shortwings getting made anytime soon) and maybe black tassels.
I'm playing around with the idea of adding a casual Alden or two over the next few months... Choose between Alden Black Indy (401) Leffot's tan country calf PTB on commando Leffot's Cooney Boot The Indy and Calf PTB have the advantage of being able to be worn from now until summer, during with both models would get tons of use I also think it may be time to add a black tassel and a color 8 NST...

I am thinking about the classic AF53 from Alden of Carmel... I really like Trubalance last for casual weekend wear with denim and chinos. Owners, where does this model rank in your collection?

I am examining the commando soles on my color 8 wingtips from AOC (which I basically use as my dress boots on snowy / icy days like this), and I don't notice the treads wearing down or separation on the sole. These have gotten me through one and a half harsh winter. The Alden commando sole isn't as durable / rugged as a true Vibram lug sole, but that is because of the low profile of the sole... I think they are meant to be "dress casual" commando soles as opposed to the...
For some reason I used to dislike the cordovan Indy - now after owning the Leffot Cigar Indy, seeing all the photos of black, cigar and color 8 indy boots on this thread, I really have come around on them. They are brawny but elegant boots and stand up well to chinos, denim and flannel...
Are these new? Really liking them. Works well with your denim (what is it, by the way?)
Really thinking about getting the vanilla bean linens to pair with last year's brown windowpane Vittorio sportscoat.
