Perfect! Casual boot laces it is, good eye. A few pages back I said J Crew can piss up a rope and I'll never shop with them.. since then I have bough from them; 2 made in USA socks, Indys, Alden Shoe Trees, Timex Watch, and not laces.. maybe i need to re-evaluate them .

The J Crew reds look great IMO...

^ Those look awesome! I think I'm going to buy the casual boot ones, think those will look great too.

Hey guys, just recently found this forum and wanted to say hello. Love that this exists! My current Alden collection is:

#8 Wingtip Barrie Boots full eyelet
Chromexcel Brown Indy's
Suede Longwing - Tan

I am thinking about a pair of chukkas next and having a very tough time deciding between Ravello and Cigar. I do have a pair of Leffot natural chromexcel loafers so I do have some light color as well I know the likely response will be personal preference....but any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

I put the blue j crew laces in my J Crew-Indys. I love the look. If I wasn't so busy/dirty making red velvet cake pops with my daughter I'd snap a pic.

Not to worry. As a father of daughters, I can unequivocally say your time spent with her doing such things is much more important than a picture of your footwear. nod[1].gif

Not that I know of. There are a few shops that sell a very limited selection of basics (e.g., Hanig's in the John Hancock building). May be a few others here and there, but I don't think you will encounter anything rare or unusual.

There is Haberdash, which also has a fairly limited selection.
