Anyone here own both Indy 403 and 405? If so, can you post a side by side picture? Thanks.

I might be forgetting something, but off the top of my head:

Indy boots: 405s, #8, black, whiskey and cigar shell, j crew 40510s, tobacco chamois
LWB: cigar, whiskey, ravello, #8 and black shell
captoe blucher in black shell
#8 monkstraps
chukkas in #8 and whiskey
#8 pebble grain shell NSTs
#8 SF boot
#8 wingtip boot, grant last
#8 captoe boot, grant last
cigar NST loafers
#8 and black shell low vamp loafers
natural cxl plain toe boot

on order: natural cxl tanker

Also interesting is the long list of fit mistakes I've made over the years to get to get to the current state. Here are the ones I have purchased, worn and remember getting rid of. This list doesn't count ones I've purchased and had to return for fit-related reasons:

LHS in whiskey (2 pair), #8 (3 pair) and black shell
chukkas in whiskey, cigar (2 pair) and #8
black shell plaza captoe boots (2 pair)
perf captoe bals (black calf and #8 shell)
whiskey shell nst
black calf wingtip bal
#8 tassel loafer (2 pair)

It's funny what some people will do to combat insomnia... like counting a forum member's pairs of Aldens...

Correction: I speculated whether or not he had a spreadsheet, I have no idea if he does. But it would be interesting to see the list!

What a great collection! I have one pair of Indys but I'm hoping to get some scratch together for more Aldens!

I would appreciate that. I have the 405's already, but thinking about buying a pair of 403's.

You need the shell Grand Slam - it's not much of a challenge to collect Alden shells.

What's the turnaround on sending a pair of shoes to Alden for repair? Some of the stitching is coming lose on my longwings (bought a month ago).

Despite the issue, I love the shoes (the glow is great). This is my first pair, I probably will add the cigar indys from Epaulet, a pair of the leisure handsewn moccasins and the J Crew tobacco longwing.
