    I love it. Did you purchase the laces here on B&S?

    Nope, picked up a bunch in Japan last week in all sorts of colors. I may start stocking them at the shop...they're really nice quality actually.

    i like the laces Tom, but only for some occasions. my friend here with me, on the other hand, says "hell no." but what does he know? lol http://www.aldenshop.com/ has 405s in lots of sizes. they even have the ones with the cotton duck lining edit - the guy asked for 403s and i send a link to 405s. sorry i misread that.

    Nope, sorry.

    Yeah, just for fun occasions. I did it for today because it perfectly matches the leather bracelet I'm wearing and also the red chronograph hand on my watch. [​IMG]

    You have 3 times more customers wearing 7D than 10D?

    Aldens are popular with circus midgets and small asian men (hence The OneShoe).

    I have a few alden boots with double leather sole's that get really slippery on tile floors, even with the 1/2 rubber heel. My question is, has anyone applied 'oil" to their soles in order to make them slightly more weather reisitant & also less slippery?

    Go with the Indy, for your first. You'll most likely never take them off.
