    Does anyone know where I could order laces like the ones on these snuff suede Indy boots from LS?
    I am looking for different colours. I believe these are waxed, right?
    Thanks.

    +1. Also looking for Alden laces. Would appreciate the help

    order these from the Alden SF shop and ask for 54" brown flat cordo-hide laces. They are the dark brown, flat, waxed laces that come with alot of the Alden boots. I just got 4 replacement pairs for my WP tanks and they are what they originally came with.
    email them and ask what other colors they come in.

    So I went into Renner's about a week ago and bought some Alden Indys. I wore them around for two days and unfortunately found that the stitching on the back near the sole had been faulty and that the back panel was coming loose. I took it back in to Renner's, they called Alden, and they asked that it be sent in for evaluation.

    Has anyone had any experience with this? The fellow at Renner's said they'll probably look at it for a minute and make sure its a manufacturing error, repair it, and ship it right back. Anyone have any idea what the turnaround time for something like this typically is?

    I had a stitching repair done on Indy boots at the Alden factory take about 10 days from shipping it out to receiving it back. That includes a weekend, so 7 business days. I included instructions to have them ship it back directly to my house, although Renner's might insist on having it shipped back to them. Either way, it should work out fine. Original factory work that fast is impressive IMO.

    my vote is whiskey for the wedding and cigar for the rehearsal dinner. the whiskey will be a fantastic contrast to the charcoal suit and cigar sounds perfect for the other outfit.
