Good eye.

Holy smokes what a collection Zippyh!!  I'm in complete and utter awe... 52 pairs of Aldens if I counted correctly.  Not sure I dare to post a pic as it would pale in comparison to both yours and MrDV's.  Well done my friend!

Zippy I may have missed this, but what size are you? You know shoes are for wearing not storing right? Prehaps I could remedy that somewhat.biggrin.gif

Yours isn't shabby.

Tough question.
If I had to pick 3, I'd go #4 boots, ravello wing tip boots, and maybe the #8 punch cap boots..
You could ask me again later and I'm not sure I'd pick the same three. I'd probably still go with the #4 boots since I like that color so much.

How about your faves?
post #51846 of 79179

Hi guys, I'm really interested in picking up a pair of Alden Indy's. I have reviews, opinions, and seen many pictures of them, I must say, I really admire the quality of these boots.

 

One problem I hope someone could help me out with is the sizing. I currently have Red Wing GT's in a size 8D, should I get the Alden Indy in the same size or should I size up or down half a size?

 

Thanks.

One of the best pairs of boots on this thread, period. More Alden stockists should be doing boots on Plaza with leather sole.

#4 and ravello boots are some of my favorites as well.
My favorite pair (at the moment) is ravello ptb.

Outstanding family pics, gents... Away from home so I may be late with mine

As I stand in my snuff suede LHS, I am determined to make a cordovan version work... Cigar here I come

I sold a pair of ravello PTB very early in my Alden phase. One of my biggest regrets.

LHS:         Cigar, Color 8, Black BB Unlined

(Implementing 'The Method' on each pair would have entailed over 90 min of brushing, so I simply wiped them down with a damp paper towel.)

I will be interested to see what biases everyone has in their collections.  I know RTP has a heavy weighting on the LWBs.  Hopefully we have a good turn out.

Nice collection.

Only own one pair of Alden at the moment, woe is me...

However, thought I'd share my family photo of brothers from different mothers on this memorial day.

The All-American Boot Collection:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Back Row: Danner Mountain Light II, Red Wing 8138, Red Wing Hawthorne Iron Ranger
Front Row: Wolverine 1000 Mile Rust, Alden #8 Wingtip Boots, Allen Edmonds Fifth Street

Please excuse the horrible carpeting, it's a rental and I have a dog with white fur...
