Well...after posting this I found the exact shoe on ebay in my size at just over $100 so I decided to give it a shot. So...here is the before:




And the After. Still brushing and adding a bit of polish here and there to even out the finish, but came out pretty good. Tried to get close to a RL Marlow color:




Thanks...JT

forum question: what is your go-to alden of choice for rainy days when you need to wear a suit?

post #32815 of 91770
^ thats tough. I dont like wearing a leather soled boot and the commando sole is too rugged. I think Alden would look great on Dainite

Is the Indy 403 a good "bad weather" boot?  I mean a good go to boot for rainy days with some puddles or slush when you don't want to wear your nicer shoes?  Or are they also delicate in bad weather?

Like Uncle says: Whatever I would otherwise wear, +overshoes.  I know that they are ugly, but when you get inside you can just take them off.
 

 

In my mind, that is a better option than wearing boots with a suit.

I personally wear overshoes for light rain but I have few boots that I do wear when the weather gets pretty bad (for those in NYC you know what it's like when it's pouring and the water gushes about ankle high). When it gets REALLY bad, that's when my wellies come out.

I keep a couple of pairs of shoes in my office so I don't have to carry shoes around on bad days.

Boots + suits: depends on the boot and the environment but I like the look (only the bottom are Aldens):

I don't actually wear suits to work, more business casual.. So, the Indy's would look ok on bad weather days..  I'm just wondering if they can stand up to the weather or should I be careful with those as well?
