Newbie poster here, so I don't have a "one that got away" story yet for Alden's....but did just get my hands on these Tobacco Reverse Chamois Indy's from Alden SF. Beauties..

Those are really nice. I'm going to add a second pair of Indy boots, for sure in reverse chamois just debating between earth or tobacco.

Either one is nice, why not get both???
Is there a thing as too many Indy boots? hahah. It really depends on if I get a pair of Viberg's service boots in tobacco reverse cham. I also have snuff suede Indys, so I can't really warrant a second brown suede Indy, especially if I follow thru with the Viberg option.

Decisions, decisions...The earth ones with dark eyelets and speed hooks (not brass) seem like the slightly dressier option. I basically live in dark denim and occasionally chinos so the dark brown was a better match for my usage!

The correct amount of Indy's (or any Alden for that matter) is N + 1

Time to trudge around the property with an arborist. The remaining snow calls for the AT sole.

For all of you with a 13D, how have none of you purchased these yet?

They are another 25% off which means you can purchase a new and original Brooks Brothers x Alden tassel calfskin loafer for only $209.25. I am tempted to purchase them and then put them on eBay for twice the price.

And maybe get another 15% off if you sign up for BB mailing list. 😳

As long as they are "sufficiently distinct" it's hard not to keep acquiring Indys.

I have a pair of tan suede on red microsole. They are really light and great for spring and summer.
I have a pair of Color #8 on commando.
I have a pair of cigar on plaza last on commando.

The tobacco reverse chamois from Alden SF are definitely on my list. I'd probably have ordered a pair already had my cigar Indys not sated my desire for new boots, at least for the time being.
