The only place that I've worn saddle shoes in the last thirty years is on the golf course. But those #4's are eye catching to say the least. Looking good MrDV!

I have never consider using wax on CXL.  First time i have seen a really nice shine on CXL
I'd love to know the answer to this as well.
I feel like my natural CXL Indy's are getting a bit dark.

I agree -- too close to your others. I like the Cigar Atom but the antique welt is not as good for me as a dark welt when wearing to work. Still hunting a brown wingtip in a non-Barrie last....

Not true.  Sherman bros. has a sale on all Alden's every year after Christmas.  


In addition, NRO frequently advertises a 20% sale (with the operative word "advertises"), J crew has done 20%, Steeple Chase Clothiers in Cincinnati, and Brooks Brothers to name a few have all done 15-25% off at some point during the year.

I wish J Crew (or someone) would redo those saddle shoes with suede and #8. I would love a pair of those

I agree with BeSpiff...  you have the casual cigar in the LWB and Brixtons, and the more dressy medallion cap toe bal in Cigar.  The atom would be very similar in use to the LWB which I think is a better shoe (but that's just me).  The tremont last is sleeker, but not by much at all.  It still has a fairly rounded toe.  That coupled with the antique edge trim makes it much more of a casual shoe than not.  Still, that cigar atom looks really cool.  If you have the dinero to burn, go for it! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

J Crew did one in snuff suede with a color 8 saddle.  That was the finest suede Alden makeup I've seen, imho.  I was a fool to not pick it up when I had a chance.  That window though, was very small.

 

I might prefer camel /tan suede with cigar saddles.

I'm looking for suggestions that are definitely not SF-approved.  I pretty much wear lace-up boots all the time and they are a real pain at the security check points when travelling.  So....does anyone know of good quality (preferably Goodyear-welted but Blake-stitched would be okay) lace-up boots that are good-looking, of a casual style and that are comfortable and that have a side zip (Horror of horrors!).  There you have it.  And I'm not really interested in Chelsea boots.  Thanks.

Quick question: where can I get some waxed laces for my Indy boots? I think they would look better than the regular laces.

Why not get some shoes for your travel days?

I've never used wax on my Indys. Just brushing. TBH, I don't buff a ton either.
