I've never even tried on an indy boot, but whenever I see Amlai's cigar indies I immediately visit my checking account and start doing creative math to determine how to afford some.

What's the general wait for cigar indies?

Only way to find out is to ask... I don't remember how long I waited... 6 months?

Anyone know if the Alden suede chukka/desert boots are likely to be on sale anywhere soon?

Depending on your size there was some 9d's for sale in the b&s forum this morning. Might still be there.

Here are some pics of the Context Tanker boot. Just figured I'd throw some up since I haven't really seen this boot in this thread yet.

So mad that I missed out on those whiskey Indys. Absolutely beautiful.

Which Alden cordovan leather develops a more deep red, almost-burgundy patina? Is it cigar or #8? i'm interested in some cordovan boots that will have that black-cherry color or something like it. EDIT: i did more searching and think i found my answer (#8)

#8

Having never owned a pair of Alden boots before I have taken the plunge, after much indecision, and ordered a pair of Leather Souls' NST Tanker boots in #8.
Alden are all but impossible to get in the UK so my only option was to order fron the US.
Tom at Leather Soul was very patient with me over loads of emails as I was really unsure of my sizing.
I am a UK9 in Crockett & Jones but a UK81/2 in Trickers, I think I am a UK9 in C&J as the last is narrower than Trickers.
The C&J I have are their Harlech boot in dark brown cordovan, C&J call it dark brown but what would Alden call it. Would Horween supply C&J a unique colour.
My Trickers are their Burford boot.
Tom said go for a US9 in the Barrie last so that it what I have ordered. UK9 = US91/2 = Barrie 9.
I hope it's right as the option of returning them to Hawaii is not realistic due to return shipping costs etc, by which time they will all be sold anyway !

I would say this is about right based on my own experiences with C&J and the Barrie last.
