Pardon me.  Thanks PapaD, that is what I meant. The flat welt gives it a sleeker/dressier look than the storm welt which you would find on the 990s and 975s.

Alden newbie!  My first pair of Aldens arrived from Shoe Mart today.  Shoe Mart was great to deal with + I am now on their mailing list for cosmetic blems.  

 

I was all set to get in on the Kudu w/modified last MTO but ended up really needing a more aggressive sole.   

 

The first word that came to mind when I unboxed the boots was "substantial".  The fit is great out of the box, but I am still interested in ordering a pair of boots on the modified last.  Natural PTB's are next I think.

 

One question for you all:  I was kind of expecting to have a nice pair of the white cloth bags I see in a lot of photos in this thread.   Do Indy's come in plastic bags? (see picture).

 

Last, sorry for the bad iPhone pics.

Thanks for the info!

Is the M58 a narrower last? I think I'd have to try it on to know for sure how my foot would fit.

It's a little narrower. Myself I wear the same size as Barrie last though YMMV.

I was curious as to what navy cxl looks like... it's quite nice as a moc (from Oak St Bootmakers):

With cordovan becoming harder to get, looks like retailers are experimenting with suede, calf and cxl a bit more

You read my mind. If you notice, Shoe Mart now has many models in calf that appear to be replicating the same models/colors as their exotic shell cousins.
