I'd say a braided belt. In leather or rope/fabric of some sort. Keeps it casual and suits the warm weather.

or this

It scares me how you "just happened to have that picture hanging around..." rotflmao.gif

I've been wearing a leather belt or a braided belt and they look ok, not great. Thanks guys!

Thank you for the info Tom. Do you think there is a shortage of shell supply from Horween or not enough production capacity with Alden that is resulting in the rarer colors being less available in stores? Or perhaps both are issues?

You are correct that they should arrive some time in July. With Alden, delivery times are not an exact science, but that's the information we're receiving from their factory.

Thank you!

Did not know TSM was on SF! I think this is the first time I saw a post. Great service by the way! Your customer service staff is excellent.

really?! I didn't realize that Moulded Shoe carries the actual Alden Commando sole - actually, I would prefer that to the full Commando sole (more aesthetically pleasing) - the boots came in (they  are perfect), I'll give Moulded Shoe a call in the a.m. - thanks for the heads up!

Anyone have any thoughts on the Alden Milkshake Indy boot?  Thinking of getting a pair, but worried about keeping the suede clean, seems like I'd be walking on eggshells all day in these things...anyone have a pair or have an opinion?  I could probably get lots of wear out of them since I live in Los Angeles.  Thanks :)
