My Alden collection just started a few months ago. Right now, I only have the 403.

Sorry but I see basically no difference.

I just got some Alden irregulars delivered, one of which was the Navy CXL tanker boot. Honestly I can't even see what the defect is.

Anyway, what do you wear with these? I'm not sure I can actually pull these off.

I'm sure they would look good with any pant that is a shade of brown(khaki) or denim.

 

What size are they? Just in case you decide not to keep them. I'm assuming they are the Epaulet ones. All eyes and contrast stitching.

Lots of things. Navy is fire man.

Then I would just go with whatever model you fancy more at the moment. Without any worry of overlapping or redundancy, just go with what you like more.

 

They are both super versatile and you can't go wrong.

Size 11.5D

It's odd because I've ordered new first quality Aldens that were in far worse shape than some of the irregulars I've ordered.

There were actually several on the last round of irregular emails, so you could always call TSM and ask about style FD-D3904C.

Yeah, they look exactly like the Epaulet ones. All brass eyelets, antique edge, commando sole, contrast stitching, but one inconsistency is that Epaulet website says they're in Trubalance but the Alden email says Barrie, so I am emailing Alden to inquire.

[edit]

Alden replied in record time. They are indeed Trubalance, which sucks because I know they won't fit well. My 403s in 11.5D had to be replaced with 12C.

I see a pretty discernible difference. It's gone from blindingly light to a mellowed out tan. Perhaps the pictures don't quite do either end justice. I can see a difference even in the pictures, though.

Here is the defect, not sure what it is. Perhaps laceration in the shell that was repaired

 

This might be the perfect casual shoe.  Congrats!

Alden SF Natty CXL chukka on double waterlock soles OR
Leffot unlined Natty CXL chukka on flex soles?


I personally prefer the greater support and stability of the double leather or double waterlock soles.  The single leather/flex soles are thin (slipper-like) and make my feet and ankles (and knees for that matter) feel terrible at the end of a long day.  I try to avoid wearing them when I know I will be on my feet all day.

 

Good luck!

Repp, those brown cxl look great. Particularly on that commando. I find brown cxl pair exceptionally well with white pants.
