After I saw it on eBay I looked thru about 20 pages of the marketplace and couldn't find it. I had to google "Cigar PTB" before I found it.

Yeah, I had to take down the ad after I got the bid on eBay.  I didn't think someone would place a bid on it so early in the auction.  Anyway, does anybody have the Alden for J Crew navy cxl ptb?  The color and brass eyelets is starting to grow on me.  Damn it, I need help!  :)

$750, given the regular price of cigar and its lack of availability, is a very decent price.

Thanks, Seven!

Or a tongue pad.

Choices - buy a color 8 Indy from The Shoe Mart now with its 360 reverse welt and commando sole or get on the waiting list for Alden NYC's version, which has a double leather sole and close heel... Alden NYC's version should be restocked by year end...

I always prefer the double leather sole, especially with shell.  However, I suppose it depends how you plan to use them and in which part of our country you live (climate/weather).   I suppose it also depends on the immediacy of the itch to possess them. tounge.gif

 

BTW, I do prefer the closed heel also.

I'd be happy if they'd just offer more #4 - an NST boot would be great, or perhaps a LWB.
More 4!
THIS! #4 plaza boot. I don't have an nst boot...

Fortunately, I have not been bit by the navy blue shell bug. But if alden offered it I'm sure I would play.

Is color 4 darker than Ravello?
#4 is more red, ravello more caramel

EDIT: or maybe even #6 shell. Isn't that more reddish than #4?
I would jump on that. I like exposed eyelets. Grant last is great for boots.

3? Alden wouldn't return your email. They may even keep your deposit.

I'd do a Whiskey and Ravello saddle blucher, flat 360 welt, sigle waterlock sole, blind eyelets, antique edgetrim. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I really like those older pictures from aoc. That saddle blucher would be sick.

If you prefer the NYC version, I would wait for.  What's a few months for a boot that you will have for years?

Maybe I'll check with Alden NYC to see if they can get their hands on a narrow width suede LWB for me.

Alden NYC.

Wow...tough choice...any Indy 8 looks great to me. Favorite boot of mine and gets most compliments. Gook luck picking.
post #59010 of 99301
6 month wait for the color 8 Indy boot in my size... Would like to have these by January... Other option is a black cordovan Indy, which may be prudent given I already have the color 8 tanker. But I really like the close heel and leather sole on the Indy
