    Not much difference in versatility; they will be best worn with chinos or denim in casual outfits. Not much else you can do with either boot, and the shades of brown aren't terribly different. Maybe the darker 403 goes better with darker outerwear, but I find that after I put some Montana on my 405s, they darken anyway

    The laces are fine if he is wearing them with anything red up top (red flannel, sweater, scarf, etc). That's what colored laces are for, to match something higher in the outfit. The boots do need a good cleaning though.

    +1. The Indy's are not that versatile at all. In the 1.5 years that I've had mine I've worn them 3-4 times. Usually I just wear them with a t shirt and jeans/chinos or if not a t shirt, a flannel shirt. They're the least versatile out of all my Aldens.

    I think those laces look like junk, period. You can't convince me that a little red to pop them will make them look better.

    Sorry I don't, but they should go online in the next few days. if there's a style that sounds interesting, you can call or visit the shop to see if your size is available. I expect some of these to vanish fairly soon!

    I hope they do a good job, I am sending in my burnished tan short wings to have them dyed darker brown and have the welt antiqued. I might get the flush toe taps also.
