    is it correct to assume that the most likely way to get cigar indy's is through alden SF, DC or NY?

    Does anyone know of any year/2year/unknown length lists?

    I know JGilbert had a list going specifically for Cigar Indy's. No telling when it'll be confirmed, but it's out there at least.

    I'd say Van or Copley. Aberdeen is more pointy, but I've been wrong before.

    The whiskey PTB's were my first Alden purchase of 2014 too! I need to find them in cigar and Ravello.

    Yep. JGilbert. I'm on that list. Not confirmed, though.

    Alpine grain is is awesome, but Alden's version has historically looked too red for me. I've preferred the leather in boots from Alfred Sargent and Crockett and Jones

    Alden has alpine grain and cognac alpine grain, with the latter having more red hues. Perhaps you are referring to both .....

    I asked the Alden SF folks about this and they said it the boot may never be confirmed/made (not sure about the other shops though).

    While I'm sure there's some validity to what Alden SF says, I wouldn't put TOO much stock into a competing store's opinion. I'm sure the indy boot won't be confirmed any time soon, but I'm not sure about about never...

    Great combo mike.
    Great color on the ptbs. I would love to see a picture of them outdoors and next to another pair for contrast. Congratulations, awesome start to the year.

    Keep in mind that Alden SF and Alden DC are company stores and they, in my experience, have their fingers on the pulse of factory happenings more than any other retailers. As an aside, props to Jim at Alden SF for always being a true gentleman to work with.

    My new Mitch Rosen holster. Almost a perfect color 8 match to my new AoNY WT Boots. While i am sure it is cow hide, this holster 's finish is very shell like. By that I mean it has the shine and feel of Alden shell.
