I bought that pair 1 year ago and it hasn't been removed since. I even called to 6 months ago to ask If it was available and they said it was a mistake

Haha awesome. It seems that no Alden retailer has great inventory systems. I just checked if they had cigar Indys in my size...nope. I then clicked on every single other size to see if anything was available...nope.

So I just signed up for the 11 C list, and they sent me the 11.5D list (which is slightly different than the one I posted above) and the 11 C list. Here they are.

11 C


11.5 D


Those cigar cap toe bluchers in the middle look interesting.

Hopefully someone is buying or has already bought said cigar bluchers, because I could wear those.

They're probably the right size for me, but I'm going to pass. Otherwise, I would've ordered them and then posted the irregulars list. smile.gif

I've had good luck just brushing the scratches.  Otherwise a small dab of Venetian or Saphir.

Just to clarify, The 405 from Alden is not actually Chromexcel. It's just 'normal' calf leather. The Chromexcel version is the 403. 

 

This is unless you got your Indy boots from JCrew which calls their version of the Chromexcel 403 Indy's, 405.

Either here or email them at shoemart@theshoemart.com.

These are excellent. A #8 perf cap toe is probably what I would get if I needed another balmoral. It would be awesome if Alden made a few balmoral boot styles.
post #34934 of 86586

Just picked up a pair of ravello plain toes on modified off the Shoemart irregular list. This is my first pair on the modified last so I'm interested to see how they fit. From what I've read they work well with high arches so I'm optimistic.
