On Saturday I went by the Alden store on Madison and tried on a pair of Indy boots. Great, incredibly comfortable, but I didn't love the color. I decided to wait until the J. Crew version Mr. Mort had predicted was released. Well, on Sunday I wandered into the liquor store, and they were right there on the front table! First, the bad news: There was talk of these being ~$200. They are not. They are retailing for $450, a $125 upcharge over the standard Alden 405's. But the good news: They are INCREDIBLE. (Yes, I have ugly carpet, great). I wore them out of the store and so they have about 5 miles of wear on them. Incredibly comfortable, great collaboration.
