    I accidentially posted this in the Epaulet thread...

    Looking to get an Alden boot, I figure I should get one for the upcoming spring season and then add another if necessary before the fall; no need to buy two right now

    I'm looking at these models right now, which one is best for the transition from cold to cool to warm weather (let's say February through early June)

    I love the look of the Jumpers, I bought it as soon as it came out on the site, called up LSBH. I think they're pretty versatile! Haven't actually gotten them yet as I ordered them yesterday but yeah!

    I love that cigar officer's boot, but I don't know if it's the best boot for warm weather - some people feel that shell "wears warm".

    The new jumper boots are nice... But they look almost identical to my AE bayfields +$200...

    I don't think it looks anything like the Bayfield. It's just the same 'type' of shoe: Quarter brogue brown boot. The Chromexcel is different and the style is also completely different.

    damn, the new LS jumpers look awesome. I'd be all over them if I hadn't bought the Kudu Indys last year

    Agreed! So glad I picked up a pair - sure they're going to fly off the shelves.

    Really tried to make it work but unfortunately, Barrie last is not for me.
    PM me if you're interested in 9D Pitt Boots (Black Shell Cordovan).

    I'll post something in B&S sometime this weekend.

    Price Increase Savings?

    Aldens will cost $40 after Feb. 26, but if bought before then they're only $20?

    Fail at English.

    So after deciding that the Epaulet Chromexcel Officer Indy was the Indy for me a few weeks ago, i emailed epaulet to find out there wouldnt be any more until next fall. Then last night, a new-in-box pair in my size hit ebay, which I quickly purchased the moment I saw it. Hooray!

    What the hell... just 1.5-2 years ago (or maybe even less) the standard 405 was only ~330, it's currently hovering around ~420 and it's soon going to be more?

    I wonder if this will affect LeatherSoul's stuff?

    Nah, that's bullshit. This increasing is web pricing. If you can find a place that sells Alden locally the prices will always be lower. There's a really great place near where I live that's an Alden retailer and they have the Indy for 385. Most of the calf leather shoes are below 400.

    lol, and where do you think these places buy their Alden's from? the Alden fairy, who is not effected by factory price increases? and do you know Shoemart is an actual store you can walk into? I've done it!

    Same here. If you are talking about H Stockton in Atlanta, I've already asked them about this and they say they will be affected by the increase.
