No pics today, but wore my CXL Brixtons because of the rain. But I see shell in the forecast for the remainder of the week!
Agree heartily with @Sazon that the 405 is the best (non-shell) Indy.Why? It develops a lovely patina with age, the color is much richer in real life than in stock photos, and it doesn't crease like CXL. My pair of 405s is now pushing 10 years old and still going strong. I would buy the same model again in a heartbeat. And this is coming from a guy who owns and loves my two pair of CXL Aldens (ptb, Brixton boot).

They don't sell winged Mythological goddesses...

They also feature speed hooks for easy lacing and unlacing.   These rugged boots have been worn approximately 20 times. They have been stored with Alden trees (trees not...
Gentlemen, Great looking shoes all week. Many of your posts over the years have inspired me to upgrade my trousers in a big way. My photos tend to look like a bum in crummy khakis or old jeans robbed the Alden factory. So today I was very active online at Epaulet and snagged a few pair of Walts. Still haven't been bit by the raw denim thing, but Epaulet makes a damn fine trouser. Can't wait for them to arrive. Upgrading my wardrobe slowly from the ground up! Dave

Gentlemen, congrats. These are amazing. I love the shortwing and trust you will wear them in style.
