Alden MTO Boot Group Order via Alden DC - Page 27

post #391 of 476
I think the 360 welt would look better on the plaza as well.

I'm good with no pull tab. I just threw that in there.

I think the brass eyelets would look good too, but I'm ok with either.

We are looking at 8-9 right now.

I'm in, though I don't know if brass/gold eyelets will look good with dark brown suede, I prefer matched

i agree.

 

 I wonder if anyone has offered a similar mockup in the past that can be pasted to this thread.

Actually, I think brass eyelets looks fantastic with Alden's dark brown suede.  E.g. -- http://www.fransboonestore.com/store/alden/alden-x-frans-boone-humus-suede-plain-toe-on-flex-sole.  I can't find any dark brown suede Indys other than LS's previous version -- http://leathersoulhawaii.com/2011/10/15/alden-shoes-choco-suede-indy-boots-lsw-lsbh/.

I think the 270 looks slimmer, which I prefer, but I'll go with 360 if that's the consensus.  I'm also good with no pull tab.

thanks for the links. after seeing them both, I'd be happy with either

I am in too and would prefer brass eyelets and pull tab (if that is the consensus). Everything else looks stellar.

I definitely prefer the look of the eyelets on the LS version in the above link. This MTO will most likely end up looking pretty much like that except all eyelets vs speedhooks and Plaza last.

Alrighty, it looks like the consensus is thus far:

 

Dark brown suede Indy

Plaza last

Commando sole

All brass eyelets 

Antique edge trim

Reverse welt

 

Still undecided is:

360 vs 270

Leather pull tab vs no tab

 

Why don't we put these two issues to a vote and finalize the match up details...

 

My vote is for:

270

No tab

post #400 of 476
My vote is 270 and yes on the pull tab.
post #401 of 476
I'll vote 360 and no tab, and matched eyelets over brass if that was still up for debate. If brass eyelets win out I'll probably drop out of this.
post #402 of 476
360 pull tab
post #403 of 476
I would vote 360 and no pull tab. Will the toe stitching be a lighter brown or tan to give more contrast?

Sorry, I thought everyone was on board for brass eyelets.  I'd prefer brass, but I can live with matched.  I guess everyone should express a preference on this as well.

The easiest way to take a vote on this is for someone to create a google doc & then all interested parties can vote and see it there is a consensus. Someone did this when we voted on the whiskey Indy and it worked great.
