    Going to DC in two weeks, and will definitely pay Alden DC a visit.

    Are there any special model that are only available from Alden DC? :)

    My CxL Indys came with dust bags. Also, if anybody needs a pair of Alden dust bags, TSM sells them for $16 shipped I believe.

    Ok, I thought they looked ugly back when they were first listed with a pricing error.

    Now I think they look hot and I regret not pulling the trigger.

    I think they look really good in the context that he is wearing them (Charcoal slacks).

    ...but I don't think I'd like the way that they would look with say, no socks and skinny jeans.

    So I guess it depends on how you usually dress or plan to wear them.

    The shell ones do and the others don't.

    Yes... I was on the fence too... missed the price error opportunity, but later rebounded with a 30% off promo code... so it all worked out. I would definitely not wear these barefoot or with very casual dress... business casual seems to work just right with this look... (and not with a suit either, shoe is too casual looking IMO).

    probably special make ups including shell and chromexcel include bags. but the standard stock indy boots do not.

    I wonder if shoe bags are only offered through certain vendors? Either way, I don't really care that I didn't get the bags as my CXL's are gonna be my knock around boots
