+1

That was exactly what I was thinking -

however, looking at that sole, I could see these being wildly comfortable -

I jumped on the preorder, but now I'm having second thoughts - really torn -

I think I'll wait until they actually arrive, let me see them in person and give them a chance

I have no clue if this is against the rules or not, but check my signature for a pair of ravello PTBs and a pair of tan suede PTBs on sale in B&S.

Great for guys in L.A. who wear boots and 21oz denim in July, and for whom Danner boots are too plebe.

A good choice. Additionally, LS recently had a black and #8 shell Hampton last makeup -- PTB with a medallion, I believe.

I am not saying Alden is not good, but I just feel Alden is not those kind of boots.

Mayyyyybe if you go by looks alone, but the difference in comfort between the two brands is night and day!

I should know, I'm wearing a pair of Red Wings right now.

I guess they are supposed to look industrial. I think I'll stick with my Indy boots. What some may not realize is those were originally work boots. And Harrison Ford wore them as a carpenter long before he did for the movies too.

Isn't that a fairly well-worn tale?

Indeed. It seems that anyone who has been around here for more than a minute knows this story.

Likewise, selling a pair of natural chromexcel wingtip boots.

What are people's thoughts on the Indy 405 vs 403? I have the 403 but sometimes have second thoughts and wish I had bought the original. I've also heard that the 405 color can sometimes be too orange.

I see Leffot has the 405 with commando sole, which is tempting my wallet.

Is there a place online to order the wingtip bootsin #8 with a rubber sole in a size 12 or 11 1/2 D? I'm looking on Alden of Carmel but they only have up to 11. Anywhere else?

bluchers and suits? i thought that was shunned or something
post #23430 of 86540
^ I don't own a balmoral shoe - only bluchers (and I've managed to evade the fashion police when I wear suits, at least up to now).
