    I have the 405's and I do like the lighter color but CXL is pretty awesome as well. But since I already have the 405, getting a 403 doesn't make sense. If I get another Indy boot, it'll probably be a #8 with a leather sole.

    Also, I guess I'll be differnt in regards to the hand-stitched vs machine-stitched. I prefer the subtlety of the machine-stitched boot.

    The Indy boot on a leather sole has always been a weird thing to me. I can't see why one would want a work boot with a leather sole.

    Then again, I'm the guy who gets a Topy on all leather soles.

    Can someone explain the crepe sole? I understand the various reasons to have a leather, Dainite, or commando sole, but I don't get the purpose of the crepe sole.

    - More "cushioned" feel when walking
    - Good traction in wet weather (and a lot of other conditions)

    I need to visit Seattle now - this 90 degree weather and humidity is getting annoying. I was walking around midtown all around manhattan yesterday in a suit, cordovan wingtips (RL), etc, and was burning up. Now I understand why a lot of guys wear these lightweight gucci/ferragamo loafers with suits in NYC

    Looking good 100yrs, this has been a boot friendly summer for sure. I need to line up their #8 plaza cap toe boot sometime soon.

    Beautiful pic and coordination.

    Ditto. Totally out of place on that makeup, too, IMO.


    Beautiful boot. Tone looks awesome in that light/pic. And people not wearing their boots because of the weather is ridiculous IMO - rock 'em!

    Not necessarily Alden related, but on my trip to Brighton Beach today I saw this, and couldn't help but think of you guys:
