//edit//
Key points that I'm looking for are black, commando sole, cap toe, in anything but cordovan.

 

Call Yenni @Brick + Mortar

That's the exact makeup I am looking for (all eyelets, Aberdeen, black shell)...

Gotta figure out who makes it. Let me know what's on the heel pad, if anything.


Unfortunately they're at the cobbler (picking them up tomorrow), but I'll check the heel for sure. The stats per TSM were Black Shell on Grant however!

The tan country calf cap toe boots have arrived from Yenni:

 

 

(I'd do a full photo set on them but general lack of enthusiasm with my previous efforts has sort of discouraged me from bothering anymore.)

Very nice and would love to seem more pics!  I was drooling over the LWB and Medallion Tip Yenni carries in the same tan country grain.

Really? I love seeing your photos. Hope you'll post them if you've got time.

Which 3 do I sell? (Keep in mind I’ve already sold snuff suede Indys and Blue CXL Indys)

1. OG 405

2. LeatherSoul Ultimate Indy (commando sole) modified with all brass eyelets

3. Leather Soul Vintage Indy (similar owned – none)

4. Ep. Nat CXL Innsbruck Indy (similar – Nat CXL PT boot)

5. Ep. Ironside Reverse Chamois Indy (similar – B&M Reverse Chamois WT boot)

6. Color 8 Shell Indy - modified with all brass eyelets (similar – Color 8 shell Tanker)

7. Black Shell Indy - modified with all brass eyelets and mid brown edge trim (already for sale) (similar – Black shell Tanker)

8. Color 4 Indy with Unicorn horn eyelets (similar – color 4 shell flip flops)

Thanks !

To be honest, I would keep three - color 8 Indy (IMO, a color 8 or cigar Indy is a must own), one of the Ironside/Vintage and one of the Ultimate/Innsbruck.

I know people love Color 4, but for my money the rest of your collection is much more wearable. If you must keep the Color 4, go ahead. You already have substitutes for almost all of the other boots you have.

Gents,

Do you think adding the Frans Boone Paratrooper Snuff Captoe Suede Boot to this collection is too much?

Snuff Collection
Snuff Unlined Chukkas
Snuff Plaza Wingtip Blucher (Yenni)

Captoe Collection
Black Cordovan Captoe Boot
Color 8 Cordovan Punch Captoe Jumper Boot (Leather Soul - Unsure if I am keeping this)
Leather Soul Conservation Boot in Chromexcel
Color 8 Straight Tip Bal
Black Punch Toe Bal
Tan Calf Medallion Punch Bal (Moulded Shoe)

On top of the Snuff Captoe Boot, I am also looking into adding additional LHS (natural CXL, cordovan), a Barrie Cordovan boot on Commando soles, a "rough" leather boot, and maybe a brown suede model.

Is it going to render your Snuff chukka's to the never worn category? Only reason I ask is that I have a pair of Carmina Snuff/brown color cap toe boots and between my Alden X Brooks suede boot on crepe and my AE Gobi suede chukka..I do not seem to reach for the Carmina's....and from a pure build quality if you put all three next to each other your eye goes to the Carmina...yet still for some reason I just do not reach for it.

I would agree 2, 4, 7....My Ironsides have become one of my favorite boots across all that I own and actually have put my Black CXL Vibergs to second choice when reaching for a blackish boot...something I never believed would happen.
