    Has anyone thought about seeing if we could do another leathersoul Alden for styleforum boot?

    I would love the vintage Indy in a grey / charcoal / dark brown oiled nubuck.

    Could be cool.


    I actually PM'd about this and just got lazy and never pursued it. my idea was a plain toe boot in snuff suede, speed lacers, commando sole, plaza last

    welp apparently its a go then :p I don't think it was anything 'official' though, I just emailed and went 'this would be a cool idea for a boot, why don't you do it!'

    maybe if you have a good idea you should do the same thing!

    Hmmm...

    I love the Indy, it's just the colourways don't really work for me with what I wear.

    I'll have to look at seeing if Tom would want to do a SF Indy, it could be awesome.

    I'll have to see if I can do a poll or somehing after contacting Tom. I'll give him a call early next week.

    EDIT:

    Teger your idea sounds pretty good, it will be good to see how that turns out.

    Next year is going to be an Alden year. I can feel it already. I love the chukka, vintage indy, and the balmoral wingtips in black and #8 cordovan.

    Just plain awesome.

    I would totally be down for a LSxSFxAlden boot. I was planning on buying a pair of chukkas in the fall but I'll gladly wait for this.

    I would also like to see a plantation crepe sole chukka boat in sand suede but I think it has the potential to be REALLY ugly

    I was thinking a crepe sole on the snuff suede plain toe you mentioned early has a lot of potential too.

    look you smarmy little traitor, some of us like to buy AMERICAN. do you know that means, you upjumped cabin boy? that means we bleed red white and blue and while you and your pansy friends are buying 'crocket and jonesssss', some fancy tight lipped lisping british label, we're buying U-S-A

    In my mind this is like saying "Why fuck beautiful classy women when stupid street whores will suck you off?"
