    The only one I have seen is from their IG account and it was horribly oversaturated.

    Speaking of J.Gilbert, a fresh arrival from Yenni at Brick & Mortar today - Color 8 Indy on Commando from J.Gilbert's final run.

    For shell yes, for calf not so much. We're pretty much at $600 for calf boots, so that's an almost 100% increase in 8 years, which is nuts. Reminds me of Rolex

    Decided to reach past the shell today for some calf.
    Brown straight tips on Plaza. The fit in calf is always a tad snugger than shell.

    Haven't seen any. Visited the store last week, sadly they didn't have my size.
    The boot was superb! On the list for the next round.

    Although I buy them sometimes, I believe Alden calf shoes are a pretty darn bad value. For some reason, all other shoe makers have a significant price difference from calf to shell (think AE, C&J). But for Alden the price difference is almost not enough to not get shell.
