    Possible silly question alert.

    You know those lovely flat waxed laces on so many Alden boots? Yeah. Is there any way to keep them flat? Are they even supposed to remain so? It certainly looks much more visually pleasing, but I wonder if I'm doing something wrong or if they just naturally get twisted around over time.

    You are doing something wrong. Keep them flat when you lace them. OCD helps.

    I've kept mine flat for the month or so I've had my boots. I just laced them with the laces flat, and whenever I untie them I make sure to flatten out the laces after the top eyelet (just sort of pull across the whole thing).

    I've found Alden boot laces to be pretty shoddy in quality. (all of mine have broken within a couple months)
    Red Wing offers a flat waxed boot lace that is outstanding, and I think you can still request a free pair from them.

    Does anybody actually have Alden bags that fit boots? I have probably 5 pairs of bags that don't get used since they don't fit the bootst they came with

    My 403s and 404s didn't have bags



    Thanks this is interesting. If you don't mind sharing how are the margins on Edward Green and GC?




    Hmmm......

    Most of my Aldens are boots and easily fit within the bags that came with them. The only smaller bags I have came with some chukkas, and is a squeeze to fit them. NAMOR got me sorted on some boot bags though for them. [​IMG]

    Does anyone know where I can find a pair of ptb boots in Plaza last?

    Preferably danite or commando sole. Not even going to be picky about whether its calf or shell!

    J Gilbert in Seattle stocks the #8 PTB boots on the Plaza. I think the next batch arrives in the fall. Call Yenni and ask to get on the pre-order list.
