    Anyone here own both Indy 403 and 405? If so, can you post a side by side picture? Thanks.

    I might be forgetting something, but off the top of my head:

    Indy boots: 405s, #8, black, whiskey and cigar shell, j crew 40510s, tobacco chamois
    LWB: cigar, whiskey, ravello, #8 and black shell
    captoe blucher in black shell
    #8 monkstraps
    chukkas in #8 and whiskey
    #8 pebble grain shell NSTs
    #8 SF boot
    #8 wingtip boot, grant last
    #8 captoe boot, grant last
    cigar NST loafers
    #8 and black shell low vamp loafers
    natural cxl plain toe boot

    on order: natural cxl tanker

    Also interesting is the long list of fit mistakes I've made over the years to get to get to the current state. Here are the ones I have purchased, worn and remember getting rid of. This list doesn't count ones I've purchased and had to return for fit-related reasons:

    LHS in whiskey (2 pair), #8 (3 pair) and black shell
    chukkas in whiskey, cigar (2 pair) and #8
    black shell plaza captoe boots (2 pair)
    perf captoe bals (black calf and #8 shell)
    whiskey shell nst
    black calf wingtip bal
    #8 tassel loafer (2 pair)

    Oh and I know someone mentioned Mac having a spreadsheet...
    It's funny what some people will do to combat insomnia... like counting a forum member's pairs of Aldens...


    Correction: I speculated whether or not he had a spreadsheet, I have no idea if he does. But it would be interesting to see the list!

    What a great collection! I have one pair of Indys but I'm hoping to get some scratch together for more Aldens!

    I can dig up a picture for you.
    I would appreciate that. I have the 405's already, but thinking about buying a pair of 403's.

    there not aldens though ... so you can attain the grand slam without #6 [​IMG]

    You need the shell Grand Slam - it's not much of a challenge to collect Alden shells. [​IMG]

    What's the turnaround on sending a pair of shoes to Alden for repair? Some of the stitching is coming lose on my longwings (bought a month ago).

    Despite the issue, I love the shoes (the glow is great). This is my first pair, I probably will add the cigar indys from Epaulet, a pair of the leisure handsewn moccasins and the J Crew tobacco longwing.
