Cigar Indy's are one of the most beautiful products Alden's ever done.

its more than that. final value fees are about 10 percent alone.

Hi,

Looking at mine now (from Roden Gray), single flex welt sole for sure. As for lined or not, I'm not sure. The heel part has a leather lining but the front does not. Does this mean they're unlined? For your research, the model number on the box is 29331F.

Velomane, thank you for the info, that helps a lot. Can you confirm that the shoe is on the Barrie last?

For some reason LS' model looks sleeker than J. Gilbert's even if they are both on the same last.

I like that they are exposed- less 'polished'

I do believe they are. I sized mine accordingly and they fit fine. Also, Alden Madison has the same model listed, top right corner.

Probably more like 18 mons. The MTO Leffot Cap Toe boot w/Leffot was sent in in Aug last year and still hasn't even ben confirmed by Alden yet.

On the photos for the 9-eyelet wingtip boot on TSM, the #8 and Ravello show 4 hooks and 5 eyelets for the laces, while for the #4, it shows 9 eyelets (no hooks). Does it actually differ per color? My preference is to have the hooks, and I don't understand why the #4 shows no hooks.

The Ravello has hook. The #4 does NOT.

IMO, no hooks = cleaner look, more dressy
