If the guy who bought the Whiskey Indys in sz 12 today on eBay is here... letme know if those don't work out. I went to a movie this afternoon rather than wait around to snipethem and I figured you'd come back and get them from me.

With that endorsement, I just ordered a pair.  It might be delivered by boat...

I was looking at them also and decided to hold off - if you ever are looking to move anything in size 12 let me know

I scanned past his description, and assumed from the top stitching that those were shell.  If those are natural CXL, they've darkened quite a bit.

I really wish I could preserve the lighter shade of my natty CXL..not that I don't like the darker patina but I have boots in that color range already.

Thanks, Uncle Mac. I do have a pair, but they are loafer shaped, so don't cover the entire shoe. I should invest in the boot shape, I think.

Btw, your black cordovan boots are outstanding, sir.

As per
@M635Guy pictures of his new natty CXL vs my pic, they darkened quite a bit. That's the beauty is natty patina. I don't think there is a way to preserve the original look of that leather.

So was part of this makeup a raised stitch or were they made like that sometime in the past? I've only seen that stitch on shell Indy boots before this, though I'm pretty new to Alden.

These were a special makeup for Epaulet a few years ago with hand stitched toe box (normally reserved for shell).
