    Can anyone comment on the fit of Alden's Straight Tip Bal (#920)? As compared to Allen Edmond's Park Avenue would be ideal. If I were to have purchased the Park Avenue's, I would have bought the 10.5D--would I be looking at the same size in Alden's?

    I would like to order the 920s, but none of the local stores stock the sizes that I would need to try on.

    Stumbled across this suede NST boot from J. Crew for spring 2013.

    Wonder if the white shoe in the background is Alden. White suede LWB on a crepe sole?

    Actually the bstrds had the pictures up for a few days.
    But it was actually the chocolate suede/red brick sole Indy product page.

    At least it was an easy return.

    Funny, I jumped on the Americana bandwagon after seeing lots of Indys on blogs. Turned out I didn't like the aesthetic, but they were a gateway boot into other Aldens and Made in the USA products (not a bad thing at all).

    Indy boots (403 or 405) are probably the most common Aldens I see here. I have the 405 on commando soles, I see it as a bad weather boot, and it works well for that purpose, but in normal weather, I'm in other shoes and boots from Alden.

    My Cigar Indy was the gateway shoe to Aldens/shell addiction
