Thanks RTP. You're right! They're not online. It's this boot (same price & specs) but in Nat. Chxcl: http://unionmadegoods.com/product/alden-mccoppin-norwegian-front-boot-in-reverse-tobacco-chamoise-40207h/
Hi gents. I'm chillin' at a resort in Newport Beach for a couple of days and was wondering if any of you left-coasters know of any nearby Alden retailers. May not be the first choice of many here, but I brought my new Natty chrmxl LWB for my resort wear. Absolutely gorgeous here. Can't wait to hit the links tomorrow morning...
I did size them the same, however the chrmxl LWBs will be a smidge roomier as they break-in/stretch. The Shell LWB will not break-in in this manner. In sum, if the shell LWBs are a little roomy for you, you may need to size differently for the chrmxl make-up.
I have the color 8 Indy, but I would take the cigar over it. Why? Who has them in stock?! Tell us man! : )
The color 8 is great, but in my opinion, its identity is a little confused: the color scheme is more formal, but the boot is very casual. It's a bit too polished for denim (for me), but way too casual for much else. My best pair-up has been with chinos. I don't have the cigar, but from pics, I think they'd be more versatile and interesting looking.
