    High praise coming from one of my Alden idols! (absolutely love that ravello Indy on the plaza; thought your whiskey one was nice, this one's even better)

    Have you considered purchasing and then changing out the soles?

    I have. bought at current exchange rate, they'd be $800 + shipping + shipping to B.Nelson for a sole change out.

    too much blood for me..

    seems frans loves the crepe.. They have three pair that I'd buy right now, had they not been fitted on crepe

    Thanks, sftg. Baffles me as to what caused it. I will have to ruminate on this.


    Thanks uncle. Words of wisdom as usual, since the spot isn't that noticeable irl as in the pics. I just need to chill and not let it bother me. As you say, they're not rembrandts.

    Thanks rtp. One of the "suits" from work noticed and commented on my boots today. I thanked him and was relieved he didn't ask me where he could find a pair.

    Epaulet just got a restock of both the Innsbruck Indy (fantastic makeup) and the Salzburger Shortwing.

    This could be the best indy I've ever seen. Everything you'd want on this boot.

    Check out that Alpine Grain.

    Take them to a good cobbler. He'll strip them down. Sometimes repeated powder soaks up the oil. If you go to the right people, those boots can be fixed.
