Also, I guess I'll be differnt in regards to the hand-stitched vs machine-stitched.  I prefer the subtlety of the machine-stitched boot.

The Indy boot on a leather sole has always been a weird thing to me. I can't see why one would want a work boot with a leather sole.

Then again, I'm the guy who gets a Topy on all leather soles.

Can someone explain the crepe sole? I understand the various reasons to have a leather, Dainite, or commando sole, but I don't get the purpose of the crepe sole.

- More "cushioned" feel when walking
- Good traction in wet weather (and a lot of other conditions)

I need to visit Seattle now - this 90 degree weather and humidity is getting annoying. I was walking around midtown all around manhattan yesterday in a suit, cordovan wingtips (RL), etc, and was burning up. Now I understand why a lot of guys wear these lightweight gucci/ferragamo loafers with suits in NYC

Looking good 100yrs, this has been a boot friendly summer for sure. I need to line up their #8 plaza cap toe boot sometime soon.

Ditto. Totally out of place on that makeup, too, IMO.

Beautiful boot. Tone looks awesome in that light/pic. And people not wearing their boots because of the weather is ridiculous IMO - rock 'em!

Not necessarily Alden related, but on my trip to Brighton Beach today I saw this, and couldn't help but think of you guys:
