Concur, but it really comes down to your personal style. I know that you tend to favor the casual styles, so I would keep the more casual style, the Cigar Indy. It doesn't hurt that the Color 8 PCT is readily available if you direly regret it.

There used to be a store that was in Buffalo that carried Aldens.

Alright gotta make a decision. Let go of the Cigar Indy's or the J Crew PCTS?

 

It is my understanding that the PCT boot is being phased out and replaced by the new #8 Indy on Crepe....

O'Connells. Got my first pair of Aldens there. They still have some models...... If you like opera.

Interesting.  Not a great choice in my book.

So I finally got my first pair of Aldens! I super excited but as this is a decent investment for me I am overly anal about things. Overall the boots seem perfect but I tried on a pair of 403s at the shoemart and didn't notice this short of distress or cracking. I know creasing is unavoidable with CXL but I only wore these for a 2 minutes in my apartment and say the cracking (like super dry skin). Is this something i should just ignore or would it hurt to put some VSC or neatsfoot oil on it to condition it back up. Think sitting in a cold warehouse for weeks could be the cause?
