Does anybody actually have Alden bags that fit boots? I have probably 5 pairs of bags that don't get used since they don't fit the bootst they came with

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).
My 403s and 404s didn't have bags

Still people are asking for more discount.
We do this because obviously the market is smaller for sizes over 10. The most common size in the US is about 9-9.5 and in Asia about 8-9. Yet we always get complaints that we don't have enough large sizes. Now you know the reason.
Thanks this is interesting. If you don't mind sharing how are the margins on Edward Green and GC?
