    Thank you. Seems like the latest ravello produced by Horween has a redder hue right out of the Alden box.

    I like that belt and have that on my next-to-order list. Does this color go well with the Indy 403? I noticed Epaulet had two colors for CXL in belts...

    I'd go "this" with diff. laces. Have owned both soles and the "that" are slippery in snowy/icy weather. The true point of commando is stability, right?

    The standard Alden shoes (LWB, PTB, Chukkas) look beautiful in a more rugged way than the vast majority of expensive shoes I have seen. Many higher-end shoes have shapes that appear much sleeker (and perhaps more feminine than I would like) and don't work equally well with jeans and slacks. Alden shoes are a good compromise of quality, shape, materials, comfort, price and color. I admire other higher end shoes but only as objects of art. I have yet to find another company that does it better on all the aforementioned qualities.

    IMO Epaulet's Brown CXL belt complements the 403 perfectly.

    I don't have 403's but that photo is similar to the actual color, maybe slightly more red due to the flash.
