    alden sf has the 97896 while the shoe mart is the 97894

    I didn't realize this and ordered the 97896 from SF in november and they edge was basically black. I sent them back and got the lighter edge from alden of carmel

    They come and go from the Ralph Lauren website. If you want a pair now, call/visit an RL store and they can more than likely track down a pair.
    They retail for something like $800-850 but they also go on sale several times a year.

    I second this: narrower toe box and looser heel. I love the look of the Darlton, and I think it dresses up nicely, but I much prefer the Barrie fit. The Darlton actually shows some gaping at the "waist" of the shoe when I walk.

    I believe one of the Alden dealers has the regular Cigar Indy but no commando... I just like the way the commando feels... the 404 is one of my favorite shoes, Also the J gilbert Wing Tip boots... both have the commando sole.

    ^^ Yes double leather oak sole.

    I'm taking them in after a couple of wears to get a Vibram topy applied by my cobbler. Figure it's best practice to break in a bit so that the topy adheres better with respect to how my foot bends

    Anyone know where I can find a Natural Chrome Excel Indy boot in 9.5? The Shoe Mart seems to be sold out. Where they the only ones carrying this boot?
