    Looking good BK, but those rolls are giving me a migraine. ;-)
    A lovely model indeed don! Looking dapper as always.
    Congrats on picking these up from someone. Figured that these were an older run. The Grant is a very nice medium last and is just superb with the Cap Toe Boot pattern. I am glad you found a good fit as it is a lesser known last and several vendors avoid it due to the typical lack of customer knowledge of it.
    JD, glad to see you enjoying your modified Indy boots today!
    Looking good NAMOR in your banana boot. They do indeed have one of the nicest heel counter pattern Alden makes. The Ravello PT boot I shortly had had the same heel details and it was gorgeous. It also had the bellow tongue and unlinedness. I hope you are able to make em work.
    Sorry to hear you had a long week, but hope your Whiskey at least gave you a momentary smile and reason to be thankful.
    Looking good DV in your Bloom free WT Boots. I am more curious about your Cigars bloom situ. Whiskey to date has been pretty bloom tolerant.
    Thank you uncle Mac. They are a great and commonly overlooked model here. A terrific suit shoe.
    Congrats on your first Alden. Please avoid this thread if you don't want them to reproduce. They look very nice. They shouldn't need too much product on them. You may want to consider getting a deer bone. And just work on brushing and buffing. :)
    Very nice. Madison is a great shop and will be my second store spotlight. I wanted to get their band, but just couldn't. Rios for some absurd reason doesn't seem to carry a Color 8 band. At least in 22mm. They just have Black, Mocha, Cognac and maybe Natural (don't recall now). I am currently planning to get a Black and Mocha strap as well to be able to match my footwear more accurately. I think the Mocha will pass the 3 foot rule for Color 8 and Cigar and Cognac will pass it for Ravello and Whiskey. :) Have a good one, Mike

    Great make up, I have the brown cxl version of this boot from Leathersoul and it's a great boot.

    If you can gather 12 interested parties, Alden of Madison is a good place to get a gMTO through. I got a gMTO for chocolate suede boot done recently with them, they were great to work with.

    Agree. These are very cool. I never would have considered a black indy until I saw these. Wear in good health.

    That's great news. It sounds like there is some interest, so I'll get a new post going in the GMTO thread and link to it in the next couple days.

    Vintage Indy action today.
    These are from July 2013 and have gotten a TON of wear in the bad weather.

    3 weeks after reluctantly selling my Leffot JC Cigar Indys due to sizing issues, I was fortunate enough to track down another pair in my appropriate size. Karma? Perhaps.

    Navy CXL WT boots x B&M today. Somewhat more casual boots for a Friday. They still dress up pretty well, though.

    This leffot make up is close to what you want, Tobacco Chamois, not reverse though. And I think they look super bad ass!!

    Alden should automatically put a "Made expressly for mdubs" stamp on shoe orders that come in in 10B (or whatever size you are).
