    Exactly. It's just that Alden is being anal about replacing

    Ok, you've got me curious. Where's the missing perforation?

    They look great - my first pair of Indy boots will be here tomorrow. How did you get rid of/color the white stitching? I need to do that...

    Question; are whiskey cordovan boots really rare or do they just not look that good? I rarely see make ups of those.

    Whiskey seems to be the most limited in general. For example not even Mac has a pair of whiskey tassels, which I would love to get my hands on. The only "boots" i have seen with whiskey are tankers (leffot had them) and chukka boots.

    EDIT - I forgot the plentiful number of whiskey indy boots out there.

    After gawking at the pics, I am looking to make the plunge for a pair of cordovan LWB #8 in size 10E. What is the best place to order them?

    SF Alden and Shoemart should have 10e's stocked for #8 LWB. Also the DC, NY Alden might have them. There should be several retail options. I guess depending on where you live you can get out of the sales tax.

    ^ Do you know if these have the antique edge trim? I really like that particular feature.

    My belief is that this is also the policy of the Shoemart. They will ship everything out as "new" first. Maybe if they get 1-2 returns then they put it on their seconds list. Last year I received color 8 PTB from Shoemart with specks of gold paint on the right top of the toe box. Very visible even from standing. Did not have any issue returning them to Shoemart but it's annoying that it was knowingly shipped like that.
