Been toying with the notion of some indys for a while, but not, so far, able to make the investment. The vintage indy from leather soul looks like the one I would want.

Honestly JD, from what I have seen from your WAYWT I couldnt picture you an indy guy.

wheres a decent place to buy aldens? don't say leathersoul because they've been nothing but super rude for no reason. i think they either speak broken english or have too many different people answering the e-mail's.

Several of those are from J. Gilbert. They have a decent and growing selection, and more will be on the way within the next couple of months.

Eh, I wear different things in different seasons... my waywts have been focussed on city stuff lately. I'd just like to see those indys once weather has taken its toll on them for a few years.
post #52 of 94691
Yep. The more modern/city fits were exactly what I was talking about. AF 60s would be great for your city fits.

I contacted Tom at leather souls to purchase the vintage indy's but he said my size was sold out, you may want to contact him and get on the pre-order list since he will get another batch.

Wow I've had nothing but pleasant experiences with them.... Alden-of-carmel.com, TheShoeMart.com are both good choices... Or New York and Frisco have stores.

I wouldn't mind getting my hands on three pairs of Aldens: the two I noted from Robin's collection and these (minus the blue laces) from Leathersoul:



For less than $1200 total for three I find them reasonably priced compared to some of the shit out there. Assuming of course that I can get them in person or proxied. I'm not paying $400 for shipping.
post #56 of 94691
^^^ how do you figure $1200?
Leather Soul Ultimate Indy and suede Indy are $450 each.
The Alden of Carmel tan wing tip is $435.

Leather Soul doesn't charge much for shipping to the mainland at least.
About what you'd pay in sales tax if you bought in person in Honolulu.
post #57 of 94691
Ok, $1300 ish. I was mistaking Alden's price of $320 for their Indy version for LSH.

As for shipping, again I was mistaken: taking Aldenshop's $135 for shipping a pair to Canada. Which is now a mute point since I've come to realize that Aldenshop doesn't carry any of those models.

thanks jonb27 i've looked at alden-of-carmel i'll check out shoemart. serious though i think i'm talking to someone who is rude because the person i talked to before said they would gladly take paypal and that the deadline for this particular shoe was july 2009. now this other person says they never ever took paypal and the deadline for the shoe already passed.

i don't want anything to do with leathersoul anymore after all that. they must be doing really good in the economy to talk to people like that.

+1 on alden of carmel and J. Gilbert. A of C was sold out of the boots I wanted but J Gilbert had them in stock and shipped them out immediately. Nothing but pleasant exchanges with either store.
