HaHa. Unfortunately, this rain was actually very hard for us, as we do not seem to have the drainage to support it. Several of our freeways even flooded and clogged the traffic!

But, noted, I will try and complain less. ;-)

At $199 for chrmxl boots (PT, CT, indy look-alike, etc...) they seem like they're worth a try.  Has anyone given them a try?

Sorry if this is blasphemous, but I was intrigued.

I got in on their kick starter for their plain toe black boot.

The quality was not great. The last is not great. I ended up dropping them off at good will.

I'd not recommend.

FYI Ben Silver Clearance has a size 32 Whiskey shell belt for under $200. I think it was $189 or so..
Some banter today about Suede Alden Chukka's on Leydon last. Might I offer these for a comparison. Duckie Brown Double Leather sole, lined, Tan, Goodyear welt. I believe they were $475 initially, but if you look hard enough, they can or could be found for $150 or so. Not a bad alternative, very roomy last as per Florsheim.

You'll be pleased to know that after looking over my current shoe collection, I decided a natural cxl chukka was a better fit. Partly, because I forgot I have a color 8 PTB from Epaulet coming at some point.

Wore my Indys for casual Friday. Finally starting to really develop some character, I've had them for two years.

A couple of Alden styles on sale at Sid Mashburn.

#8 Full Strap Penny - Size 11 - $495 - looks like it may be a lower vamp model (similar to Brooks Brothers), but I'm not sure.

These don't get enough wear. Snuff suede plain toe boot from Unipair paired with my favorite denim in my rotation, 3Sixteen ST-100xk.
