    I remember seeing the description on the Trickers thread. Trickers does a great job with the brouging. An Alden makeup would be awesome, but Trickers is just as good if not better. I may steal your specs if I nail down my Trickers' sizing.

    Just got my first pair of Aldens -- the J Crew version of the Indy boot. Don't have to tell anyone here that they are very high quality indeed...

    I think this question has been asked before, but I will again: Any recommendations on replacement laces? I am open to either leather or a nicer waxed cloth or something, though I guess a leather workboot-ish sort of lace would be my preference.

    Thanks.

    i would order the flat waxed laces alden provides for the dressier boots. Epaulet did this on their most recent Natural CXL Indy and they look perfect. I can tell you from experience that leather laces are quite obnoxious as they stretch immensely and then become thin and stringy eventually.

    I second this. I have the flat waxed laces on my Epaulet Brixtons in Natural CXL, and they look fantastic in my opinion.

    A solid pick up looking towards spring/summer. I wear a ton of boots in the summer, and not just suede. I think boots, jeans, and t shirt will always look good.
    I'm not a big fan of a brick sole, no matter the make-up, but i like this boot a quite a bit.
