    Perfect! Casual boot laces it is, good eye. A few pages back I said J Crew can piss up a rope and I'll never shop with them.. since then I have bough from them; 2 made in USA socks, Indys, Alden Shoe Trees, Timex Watch, and not laces.. maybe i need to re-evaluate them .

    Hey guys, just recently found this forum and wanted to say hello. Love that this exists! My current Alden collection is:

    #8 Wingtip Barrie Boots full eyelet
    Chromexcel Brown Indy's
    Suede Longwing - Tan

    I am thinking about a pair of chukkas next and having a very tough time deciding between Ravello and Cigar. I do have a pair of Leffot natural chromexcel loafers so I do have some light color as well I know the likely response will be personal preference....but any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

    I put the blue j crew laces in my J Crew-Indys. I love the look. If I wasn't so busy/dirty making red velvet cake pops with my daughter I'd snap a pic.

    Not to worry. As a father of daughters, I can unequivocally say your time spent with her doing such things is much more important than a picture of your footwear. :nodding:

    Not that I know of. There are a few shops that sell a very limited selection of basics (e.g., Hanig's in the John Hancock building). May be a few others here and there, but I don't think you will encounter anything rare or unusual.

    There is Haberdash, which also has a fairly limited selection.
