    Yeah, I had to take down the ad after I got the bid on eBay. I didn't think someone would place a bid on it so early in the auction. Anyway, does anybody have the Alden for J Crew navy cxl ptb? The color and brass eyelets is starting to grow on me. Damn it, I need help! :)

    Choices - buy a color 8 Indy from The Shoe Mart now with its 360 reverse welt and commando sole or get on the waiting list for Alden NYC's version, which has a double leather sole and close heel... Alden NYC's version should be restocked by year end...

    I always prefer the double leather sole, especially with shell. However, I suppose it depends how you plan to use them and in which part of our country you live (climate/weather). I suppose it also depends on the immediacy of the itch to possess them. [​IMG]

    BTW, I do prefer the closed heel also.

    THIS! #4 plaza boot. I don't have an nst boot...
    Fortunately, I have not been bit by the navy blue shell bug. But if alden offered it I'm sure I would play.
    #4 is more red, ravello more caramel
    I would jump on that. I like exposed eyelets. Grant last is great for boots.
    3? Alden wouldn't return your email. They may even keep your deposit.
    I really like those older pictures from aoc. That saddle blucher would be sick.

    If you prefer the NYC version, I would wait for. What's a few months for a boot that you will have for years?

    Maybe I'll check with Alden NYC to see if they can get their hands on a narrow width suede LWB for me.

    Wow...tough choice...any Indy 8 looks great to me. Favorite boot of mine and gets most compliments. Gook luck picking.

    6 month wait for the color 8 Indy boot in my size... Would like to have these by January... Other option is a black cordovan Indy, which may be prudent given I already have the color 8 tanker. But I really like the close heel and leather sole on the Indy
