    The Alden shop on Madison usually has these in stock in various sizes and colors (brown and black).

    This still seems to be the easiest place to get them online, at least in the US. I would assume any decent men's shoe store would have them as well, but perhaps I put too much faith in men's shoe stores. I picked up a couple of pairs in black.

    I was just placed in the same endeavor for Flat Waxed Laces and emailed http://www.shoelacesexpress.com, they say that the following (despite the poor quality photos) http://www.shoelacesexpress.com/waxeddress.asp

    are what we have been searching for, will order a few and confirm.

    anyone have any luck finding these? I need several pairs for my Aldens. From experience, online retailers of Alden will not sell you laces unless you purchase a pair of shoes

    Those would be perfect, but delivery outside of the UK is 5x more than the laces.

    Are there any disadvantages to these? Is it harder to lace them up, after you take off the laces each time to polish the shoes? Do you have to iron them? I read that Prince Charles has his valet do that.

    I posted that before I found my flat laces. I'm happy to report that they require no maintenance and there are no disadvantages to using them. I might be able to sell you some. Email [email protected]

    I'm not sure why Prince Charles would need to iron his. Perhaps they're wider, or simply that his valet is extremely fastidious.
