    arch support on the Barrie is decent but nothing like the modified, which by any standards is very high. If you need modified type arch support nothing else will do.

    whiskey varies from quite light (see this thread) to approaching revello mid-tan. In Alden there is no lighter color though Ron Rider I believe was making some in a color called "natural" that some likened to scrotum. Too pink for most people's taste. getting to a color that transparent requires perfection that is hard to find in natural hides.


    Who the hell said that? And who has a pink scrotum?

    Does anyone currently sell the Indy for cheaper than the $344 list price at Shoemart, Aldenshop, etc?

    I was at the Alden store in NYC today and they had the regular Indy tagged at $325 and the black at $365.

    I think those were the numbers, I remember thinking the regular Indy was cheaper then I had expected. Also had a great selection of cordovan including a nice #8 longwing that I tried on and liked a lot along with #8 cap toe boot and cigar shell chukka boot.

    To celebrate our 3 Year Anniversary, we created the Whiskey Cordovan version of our extremely successful #8 Cordovan Norwegian Front high boot in Commando sole with heel loop launched back in early 2008.

    My new whiskey chukkas! Incredible.

    Sorry for the blurry photo, but you get the idea.

    Whoever said they don't look good with denim was wrong in my opinion!
