    an eyelet from my indy's got caught on my door today while getting out of the car and ripped the leather. fun


    It pains me to see these babies hurt, as if some ruthless bully just punched my favorite son in the face and gave him a black eye + a permanent scar.

    A lot of sizing questions on this thread. Since most people know what their sizes are in nike, maybe it would be useful to compare your nike size to your alden size.

    To tell my experience. I wear a 13 in Nike, Adidas, etc. I wear a 11.5 Alden 9901 using the barrie last. I also wear a 13 in the Alden 1494 unlined chukka -- though I think I could wear a 12.5, but I bought them as a newbie.

    I would be curious to know what other experience in how their nike size translates to Alden in Trubalance and other Alden lasts.

    For the record, Jcrew still has the Indy but its $450 and you can't use education discounts. Same price as Leather Soul but without the commando and not from an independednt dealer so...

    I used the education discount on mine. The Liquor Store in NY, in August.

    I don't know if you need to pull off an Americana look to wear these. They're pretty good for any look, or just generally looking good. ^ Suede long wings only exist in dreams... Just got these in the mail http://www.inventorymagazine.com/updates/?p=10211
