I own no calf aldens so I cant speak to the ruggedness, but CXL I can say is definitely great for a beater.. You could rub most scratches out with just your thumb. Anything left after the thumb treatment, a little VSC would make quick work..

 

This pair of 403s were 'fixed' with just some rubbing and a light application of VSC

I'd be more inclined to get something like a wingtip boot on chromexcel or natty cxl. See, e.g., Epaulet's natty brixton boot.

I guess I'll be looking out for a cxl wingtip then!

I was just looking at those...last time it was 2010...I'll shoot them an email now and see...

The tan calf wingtip boot is awesome, but not a beater boot. I plan treating mine like calf dress shoes (regular paste wax). They already get tons of positive attention

If they did, all pairs would be pre-sold to Tom's high school buddies, with the possible exception of sizes 5.5D and 13D  :violin:

I have had good luck with leathersoul a couple of times.....just called/emailed and got in for 11d....may have just been good timing but they have been great to me.

We tried something new with black calf and we would love to hear back from you gentlemen.  All feedback is appreciated!

:rotflmao:That is hilarious and sad for us. That said, if you're looking for a brown chromexcel wingtip boot, one should be in touch with Adam at alden of Carmel. He has a brown cxl wingtip boot on commando sole on Barrie preorder with an expected delivery sometime in April.

Please excuse this newbie but can you still purchase the Cigar Indy boots brand new or they no longer available new?  From all of the pics I've seen they are some beautiful boots!  I'm leaning that direction over the Brown ChromeExcel if they are available.  Thanks!

I don't think they're in stock anywhere right now.  Your best bet is to hop on the JGilbert pre-order if you can.  It might be a looooong wait though.
