Not sure it'll be of any help, but I am pleased with size L in my 10.5D Indy. If it was a narrower last, I'd be more concerned, but the TB has a lot of volume.

It's quite a bit cheaper if you order from Paris.  I saw a superb ravello PT boot at the same shop, $1800.  It sells for about $1000 direct from Anatomica Paris.  I'd say the navy Indy boot would be around $800 plus shipping if they have it.

Thanks J. Gilbert and Yenni!

Congrats--they look awesome! I got the cigar version and fit and finish were perfect (except for the "Made for Tassels by Alden" heel pad as I got them from JGilbert). i am thinking about the color 8 makeup for the next run.
Did you order the same size as your Grant captoe boots? how does fit compare?

I am a bit new to shoes but I have grown very, very fond of Aldens. I have some cigar LWBs and just bought the 403. I always hear that color 8 is the most versatile, but I don't own color 8 nor can I see that being true (through my novice eyes). I am a college student, who typically wears dark denim/chinos/button downs. Does it still work so well for my situation?

Yes absolutely.  Color 8 matches just about everything, with the possible exception of black pants, though I've been known to wear them with black slacks given the right outfit.  You can wear Color 8 with denim, grays, navys, olives, khakis, earth tones, you name it.

Hm, I considering I own the cigar and Indy, do you think a color 8 option is a good choice? I'm trying to feed my budding shoe addiction here :P

And, where are my manners, thank you very much for your response!!!

Color 8 matches well with everything, but for me I've never been a fan of burgundy. Got the 975s as well as the lhs in #8 and ended up selling both as I didn't find the color pleasant. What area do you go to school? Personally I think ravello or C&J brown would be a better fit. Didn't see anybody wearing any burgundy in college ever.

There is a bit more #8 then, I guess get what you like, all Alden colors will match pretty well and be useful for you if you're building up a collection

I think it would fit in given the location, too. I'm a huge fan of Alden. Sadly, my wallet isn't. Anybody want a dog? JK he's awesome, coulnd't do that

I remember your post. Did you ever get that issue fixed?

 

Also I ordered half a size down from my Grant size. Fit is quite similar with the color 8 Indy a tad bit roomier.

Color 8 matches everything cigar does...but color 8 also goes with charcoal.
