    Did you have to do some yard work before leaving town? Love the PTB's.

    Wear those great looking boots with everything, just not by themselves when in public.

    It looks like someone might have to start a stand alone Alden shell boot thread. Nice boots sir, how do you like them?

    Really REALLY like these boots. Wish they still had my size. Apparently they are planning another run, but not in the immediate future.
    Wear in good health, sazon!

    I like these a lot! I really like the way the grant fits. These, I think, are a nice balance between dressy and casual. The finishing on these and all Alden shell is just amazing.

    I guess the Alden boot thread could be seasonal...haha. I'd imagine it would go pretty dormant in the summer except for incomings.

    Nice boots, tifosi. I have not tried the Grant last yet, but it looks great in your photos. I'd also like to try the Modified last. I was checking out online photos of the Alden v tip/Algonquin shoe (most of which are pics from Japanese blogs or stores) and it looks kind of interesting - and supposedly very comfortable.

    P.S. as I sit here writing this, in a pair of Color 8 Indys, and with 3 of my last 4 Alden purchases being shell boots, the idea of a separate 'Alden shell boots' thread makes perfect sense to me.

    One of my main tasks this past weekend was to start breaking in these color 8 Indys. Not that they need much breaking in. They are the most comfortable boots out of the box I've ever tried.

    Ugh, CEE...you are killing me. I'm still waiting for an update from JGilbert on my #8 Indys. The estimate last week was end of this month or next month. Yenni was supposed to be finding out from Alden.

    I feel like the Grant is a nice shape right between something like the Barrie and the Plaza. Not quite as bulbous as Barrie. I am jonesing for a Plaza boot. Alas, nothing to be had.

    Good, I mean great, looking color #8 Indy's. Are they the TSM Bootmaker Edition makeup with commando soles?

    No, Be. They are on leather.
    These are my black pair. Same soles.

    Haha, I sympathize, tifosi. I felt the same way when I saw sazon's post earlier today (Color 8 Naval Boots).

    Here's to getting good news very soon!:cheers:
