I went to Alden in SF to try on some cordovan shell. I also tried on the Indy boots, but I didn't like them much at all...mostly because of the tacky white thread on the vamp and the "pointed" shape of the toe box when looking down on the boot.
However, it's very beautiful made and the side silhouette is nice. I'd definitely recommend getting the one in chromexcel over any other colorway -- for obvious aesthetic reasons.
My friend is trying to convince me to get the Clarks DB in grey leather. The stock photos are not at all what they look like in real life. They look more brownish and probably darken with age/polishing. Think they'd look good with the darkness of the contest jeans?
EDIT: Just found the Olive leather too. The top picture might actually be of the Olive color but I can't really tell. I included the stock Olive photo too.
