CIgar indys have been pretty popular lately and I feel the same way. I am not completely positive but It seems people have received them from TSM, JGilbert, Leffot (JC indy), Epaulet, and I'm sure the retail shops have had them in the past. I am a fan of the TSM version for the all eyelets. I don't know what TSMs list situation but Id imagine a pretty serious wait like anywhere else. I however, don't mind a wait. Im heading over to TSM on Saturday to see about some chukkas and will see what the deal with the lists are now. A man can dream

I am an 8D in the Indy and an 8D in Barrie. So depending on how the Indy fits, you should be an 8D in Barrie as well.

Spring is solidly here, wearing my Alden of Madison not-yet-dirty-enough bucks today. Today's stains are brought to you by rusted-chain grease/water from an old bike I needed to throw out.

Maiden voyage. From the recent bb corporate sale. I originally ordered the snuff tassels but when they came in I decided I didn't like the colour. As luck would have it, they had these sitting in the back.

There are two ways to wear white bucks: you either try to keep them white and nice, or you beat the living crap out of them. Both are fine, but you've just got to commit one way or the other. I bought these knowing I'd be beating the crap out of them. If you want them to stay pristine, wearing them gardening, doing lawn work, or with raw denim is definitely not recommended. smile.gif

If you use nano protector or invulner, white bucks will stay very clean whether you subject them to mud and dirt or not.

There's nothing wrong with beating them up, letting them get dirty the natural way in my opinion. Enjoy!

Now with the warm weather hitting and casual loafers coming back in my rotation these will see even less wear.


How do you guys with really large collections deal with this? Are you just ok wearing things once a month or less? Maybe I need to take a hard look at sizing down my collection








I love these! Please excuse my Alden education as I'm still learning, but is this the color that is referred to as 'dark burgundy shell cordovan'?

I bought my first pair of Alden's (NXT Indy) and mail returned them yesterday as I could fit a finger between my heel and the back of the boot (8E). I'm guessing a 7.5E will do the trick, but I found a pair of these in 7.5D and am wondering if they will work. The 8E felt like a perfect width though. It's a pain living in the middle of nowhere.
