    Nice looking boot, Sir. NST on the Plaza last is a great combo.

    I get NO satisfaction from ironing my shirts or chinos (when they need it). But...I find that polishing my shoes and boots is almost like a meditation session for me. It allows me to focus on what I am doing and empty the restless mind of everything else. I initially worried about the "obligation" of maintaining my boot collection as it started to grow but it is something I look forward to doing now.

    IIRC, CTYGGG has the six blind eyelet dover cousin.

    Thank you Bakes11771. I did see CTYGGG's post from earlier this year & it sure looks similar (except the side stitching). I was just curious about the Alden NY four eyelet version - whether it really is just a four eyelet Ranger Mocc. It reminds me of an old Made in Maine LL Bean moc shoe that I own. Love to have something similar in shell.

    My natural CXL Alden Indy boots are breaking in nicely after about 3 months :D

    Nice catch Crat. I've never seen a pic of shell shoes and fly fishing gear. Some details please. What kind of fish did you catch on what tackle? It's kind of like president Warren G. Harding fishing in a three-piece suit. Nicely done sir!

    I like your boots. They appear to be breaking in nicely. Wear them in good health.

    Nice boots MrEsco. I've looked at this one several times, but I really want to get an Indy in a C width, which seems to limit the options to the 405 & 403.

    Makes two of us. I've tried the no-iron variety and it just doesn't feel the same as your typical cotton shirt that needs pressed. I've gotten so used to ironing and starching shirts over the years that I've never considered a steamer. Based on a few previous posts, I may investigate this option further.
