Dang, I want this boot with just a plain leather sole. I live in the desert. The J Crew version cap toe doesn't have storm welting I believe, cool shoe but kinda minimal that way. Pass ... any suggestions ?

Heads up for anyone: Alden SF has color 8 Indys listed on their site under the Indy boots. Sizes 6.5D and 8.5D-11.5D still in stock.
AoC has a similar make-up sans reverse storm welt, broguing at the heel, and eyelets... could always send them to B. Nelson to have eyelets installed, but the other two not so much.
Uh Oh, this is the boot.. sorry.post #32973 of 1224168/9/12 at 10:00pmput together some Alden pics

Next time you guys lose it over 5% increase on rare shell...think of these puppies.
Pretty sure thats just a ravello PTB...in non horween shell..
I love BCs stuff...but they are always out to lunch on pricing.
ps. love how they call it 'smooth italian calfskin' in the description.
they also call it an oxford when it's clearly a blucherpost #32978 of 1224168/10/12 at 5:22ampost #32979 of 1224168/10/12 at 5:29ampost #32980 of 1224168/10/12 at 7:15ampost #32981 of 1224168/10/12 at 7:57ampost #32982 of 1224168/10/12 at 8:28ampost #32983 of 1224168/10/12 at 8:33amGents:
In the last few days there has been some back and forth about shell v. calf on the AE thread. I added a comment or two about it. Below I am reproducing a post I made over on that thread earlier today. I would highly recommend each shoe pictured, particularly if your dress is of the business professional variety.Quote:This is not to revive the shell v. calf topic, but I thought the following link (picture) was apropos in demonstrating the shine each gets:
I have both the shoes pictured, albeit on the Hampton Last, and not the Plaza. So the comparison is one I know from personal experience.
A good Friday to one and all.post #32984 of 1224168/10/12 at 10:55ampost #32985 of 1224168/10/12 at 11:31am
