If you had to pick one cordovan shoe from Alden, what would be the iconic one?

Most would say the 975

Can anyone post  some pics of well kept Kudu leather and CXL shoes or boots?

 

I am currently in the fence of either getting a pair of LS UI in Kudu or Leffot's Natty CXL Indy's but I will like to see how they look after some use since I plan to use them as business casual boots as well as with jeans.

How does one find out about an Alden pre-order through J.Crew.  I recently came across a pre-order for a the PTB dover in natural CXL.  I would have loved to get in on that but the pre-order is sold out.  Do the pre-orders just randomly show up on the J.Crew site?

I'd think it'd be the Indy, right?

The OP was asking about cordovan, which I'd say the 975 or maybe the tassel loafer (but 975 being the most popular).  In general though, the Indy boot is definitely an 'iconic' makeup that Alden is known for

This was my first thought as well. If not this, than the LHS.

Got to remember the tassel loafer.

Oops - somebody did.

Among the small subset of people who even know what Alden is, you could make the argument that the Indy is the most pop culturally iconic.  But for the sartorially iconic, I'd say it a tossup between the color 8 LWB, the tassel moccasin, or the LHS.  Of those three, the 975 wins the popularity contest here and probably comes out the winner.  

 

Edit: sorry for the simultaneous summary.

I remember the tassel loafer being described as best worn by those younger than 10 or older than 50, and I agree with that

I would say the same could be said for the penny loafer....can't recall anyone wearing tassels in grade school, other than my friends parents

I know of no other way than randomly checking jcrew's site. I actually got in on that preorder, I really like Dovers, and natty CXL will be fun. When I ordered, it stated delivery date as August 8th... It was pushed back to November 24th via a personal phone call from jcrew. I suspect they were pretty swamped, got in a 2nd order with Alden, and then pulled the plug.

I think other retailers have similar make ups; anyone know of another place to find a natural CXL Dover on flex sole with antique edge?

Most iconic is definitely the color 8 gunboat, but if one asks what is the most desired makeup, I'm think most will say xyz in ravello.
