    Just received my Roy pre-orders from Context, they are easily the best looking pair of boots I own. The pull-up leather is amazing. [​IMG]

    I haven't had a chance to take any shots yet as the UPS man literally just delivered them, but I'll post some soon. If you've been thinking about picking a pair of these up, do it. I was on the fence and am so happy that I pulled the trigger on them...

    You should have taken pictures with the UPS man. Like you putting them on and him pointing towards you, then him trying them on and you pointing to him. You wearing the left, him wearing the right high fiving each other. [​IMG]

    I have the Leather Goods Connection bridle leather belt in light brown with side stitching and a brass buckle. It's nearly a perfect match for the 405
    +1 if you send them a link to a few pictures they can also find a good match and make it for you. They are easy to work with and that is how I got a belt that matches my whiskey shell.

    Should I get the 403 or the new brown tankers?

    For those who wear Alden tankers, any cons about them? Was gearing up to buy some 403's (which are readily available and which I've tried on), but now i'm waffling between those and the new LS tankers in brown chromexcel. I'm leaning towards the tanker because they're less common, but I've never had a chance to see a pair in person. Anyone care to talk me into them (or out of them)?

    Get the Tankers now before they're out in your size! I'd prefer them to the regular 403 for the same reason you stated plus Commando Sole > Regular Cork Sole. ...and Ahab. You're disturbed. [​IMG]

    What?! They certainly are if they are waffling between two Aldens.

    I personally prefer commando soles myself but the Barrie does not fit exactly like the Tru-Balance and there's a chance the Tankers won't fit as well as you'd like. Tankers are definitely a good looking boot and very unique, however Indy's are not all that common in real life and I've gotten tons of compliments on my Indy's so I can't really decide which one looks better. My ultimate plan is get a pair of commando soles put on my 2 1/2 year old Indy's at some point in the future. Of course the smart thing to do is to get a pair of the tankers now (or pre-order them) and ALSO get the Indy's as well so that you can rotate the two and get more mileage out of both.

    tankers it is.

    Yup, tankers it is.

    I just put in my order, and should get them by the middle of next week. I'll post pics when they come in (in case anyone wants to see them in more detail in time for the current preorder.)

    I like Mini's idea of eventually picking up the 403 as well.
