    Ruby Gator Tassel. They don't get a lot of wear but still nice to look at.

    +1, welcome aboard friend! I believe my first shell purchase was the cigar LWB also from AoC.

    Patrick! Welcome and congratulations! I would like to reiterate the sentiment here. I am glad to see that you survived the upgrade!!! Enjoy the many great resources or as theBeebs would probably say addicts, here on the thread. A Cigar LWB is a great way to get started here.

    @ReppTiePrepster thank you sir. Glad to be among some of the best. It is an awesome shoe and my first cigar!

    @mdubs glad to be here. I know what @thebeebs means. I seem to have caught the alden bug as well as I already own 7 pairs and have 2 preorders including the whisky Indy boot from alden madison.

    @csmitty Thank you sir. They were actually from the recent preorder I had got on back in May through Adam at AofC. I also pre ordered the Ravello LWB through him as well.

    @mcarthur Thank you sir. It's your collection of pictures which got me noticing alden shoes in the first place. Much respect.

    @tifosi thank you very much. You seem to have a great collection yourself.

    Finally pulled the trigger on a pair of 403 boots after looking for a while. Very pleased with the CXL, which has a nice rich tone and none of the loose grain you sometimes see on CXL. But like many I guess, I am not entirely on board with the stock laces. Anyone have suggestions for replacements? If be interested in either flat waxed or leather, though with the smaller eyelets the latter might be hard to find in the right thickness. Open to suggestions...

    I didn't care much for the stock laces either and got a set of the flat waxed laces when I got my Indys. I like the look much better with the waxed laces.

    Did you get them from Alden do you mean? Didn't know they had them as an option.

    CIgar LWB from AoC was my first Alden purchase as well. The Cigar is great and seems to develop the most interesting and unique patina of any of the shell colors IMO.

    DonL, I really like that whole outfit. I may have to try that sometime. But your Ravellos are killer.
