I was in the store on Tuesday and Wednesday. They are there but have a reduced staff right now.

Just got a response back.  Been in their shoes myself, no pun intended.  I was hoping there was a reason for a bit of a lag and that's certainly one of them.  All is well though.

Hah, yeah, it probably doesn't help when I go by there, because I usually spend an hour or so just chatting with Kathy or Joe... :-)

Is anyone else doing a similar makeup to this, or the LS Ultimate Indy? Dark brown on commando preferably with brass hardware? I might succumb to these but would like to consider my options. Just missed the Innsbruck Indys from Epaulet. Didn't someone do one in alpine grain recently?

Those Tan Unlined are looking good, but are a bit dark for Tan Suede. Interesting that that has this much color variation as well!

Although those bluchers are not as well appreciated here as the boots, I like my pair better than my boots and yours are just amazingly lovely as well.

These are due for a resole. I may go custom and do brick Danite.

BK, those are looking great, Danite would be a pretty good combination. What denim are you rocking with these?

You can actually see the rebrand stamp over the Nomos stamp. It's noted as brown cordovan from the seller but they are for sure color 8, just as beautiful as my other color 8 items.

Again, a beautiful watch and strap. That has a beautiful Color #8 color to it.

Also, just found out I like boots with purchase of an AE Higgins Mill, so looking I'm looking forward to adding a Black Shell Indy soon.

Thanks all for the great info in this thread.

Congrats and thanks for posting them! Your new Snuffs are lovely and look great! You have three amazing looking Aldens coming in! Boots and Aldens are a dangerous thing to like. It took me a while to get into boots too, but once you do...

Thats not a typical crease in my experience. It could have been done during manufacturing or you bent it really oddly when putting them on.

Really worth visiting when in Paris and meeting Pierre and Charles.
The two of them are very convincing about the modified last.

 

Nice looking collection that they have over there at Anatomica! Hope that you had a good and safe trip to Paris!
