Ha...thats funny...I never knew my boots were famous
I think I may have been one of the last MTOs Alden did before their moratorium...and it only took 6 months believe it or not.
They are great- really love the cigar and the antique edge trim...
PS: the Indy's on the previous page are #8 not cigar...
My mistake on the #8.
+1 on the cigar over antique edge trim
They are informally known as the "Thor Boot" in the MTO thread. Apparently there were others that coveted your make-up since having seen you post pics of them a while back. Many have referred to it as their "Holy Grail" of Aldens. They are unlike any other Alden boot, as most are sleek in appearance, and your make up looks more rugged and casual. I suppose you could describe the Indy as having those same aesthetic qualities, but still, yours is certainly unique among Aldens. Props to you for an excellent design. I'm glad that your not mad that we are trying to eliminate their one-of-a-kind status.
BTW, about when did they stop doing MTOs?
