    Mine was actually a Carmina in Dark Cognac.

    I did do boots and Chukkas as well in the brown you are referring to :) I think you would be pleased

    carmina too rich for my blood shame to say. atleast in cordo. i wear very little calf, so I don't even pay much attention.

    I just want a cigar boot (indy, wingtip, tanker) and I think I'll be good to go.

    Great looking shoes Jason. Nice to see you still lurking around here. You deserve a lot of the credit for some of Unionmade's finest Alden make-ups.

    Speaking of suit worthy shoes, has anyone seen a ravello balmoral shoe? Google doesn't show any... Looks like the "dressiest" ravellos that have been made are NSTs, the medallion captoe blucher, and I guess tassels (Mac has all three I believe, lol). There have been at least two whiskey balmoral models (captoe and wingtip).

    It wasn't kwhitelaw, who has monster feet. I'm not sure it was anybody here. I had been told by Alden DC that they had received two pairs of each size, with only one or two exceptions. They told me that there were two pairs in 8.5D. However, several days later, when you posted that you were not accepting your pair, I called Alden DC (within 20 minutes of your post). They said there had only ever been one pair of 8.5D and that it had shipped already. There weren't any others. End of story. Period.

    Infer from that what you will. I am quite curious to see who got what, not that it really matters at this point.

    Curious as to whether anyone has had luck wearing substantial arch-support insoles with Indy boots?

    I ask mainly because I really like the Innsbruck indy at Epaulet, but I missed out on my size, which is 9.5E or 10D. But I see that they have an 11D in stock. Wondering if it might be possible to wear that size with a pair of orthotic insoles, which I like to use anyway, but which don't fit in the low profile Indy my size. Anyone have any experience...
