Agreed. I really hate that model and don't know why it is so popular (but they make a lot of them, in many variations, so it must be). Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
imo, it's a great casual style and I assume it looks great in whiskey shell.
UPS just delivered the Indy natty CXL boots on the Modified last.
Notice the laces are different on each foot. I got these from Moulded Shoe and they were nice enough to include an extra pair of different laces. I think the laces on the right boot are the "usual" laces shipped with Indys but I think I actually like the narrower waxed laces on the left boot. The wider, darker laces on the right boot seem too "in your face" and distract the eyes from the boot, while the narrower laces on the left boot are more subtle and allow the boot to show itself more. At least, IMHO.
These boots just confirm that the Modified last is really my favorite last, at least from a fit and comfort standpoint. They are such a good fit and so comfortable out of the box. I'm excited to wear them but I promised my wife I'd wait till my birthday.
Moulded will do it. We can get the neo-cork sole no problem. Alden may or may not do a commando. We won't know until the order is ready to go in. The problem is weak interest.
List with the above additions is as follows
4. FrankCowperwood (strong maybe)
5. CBtoNYC (maybe)
As you can see, we need to generate a little more interest.
