Took me 40+ days, 20+ calls, 10+ voicemails, multiple messages left with their B&M store, multiple emails with the Better Business Bureau, and a complaint on their Facebook page to finally get a pair of standard Indy boots delivered.

To their credit, the people at the B&M store were reasonably nice and there was a woman named Marie who actually got things done, but whoever manages their internet store/warehouse is literally fucking brain dead.

This made me laugh. Probably because I've interacted with them on multiple occasions personally. They actually have a nice little store, and a couple of the young ladies who work there really do seem to try their best. However, the management types are less than personable. I anticipate with glee the run on their next 25% off sale and the ensuing horror stories.

I recently had great success addressing some scratches on my dad's 405s with just Renovateur and lots of brushing.

This looks fantastic. Black shell definitely under rated. Feel like it makes up very nicely in a WT. Nagging feeling I will need some. Enjoy yourself!

Thank you. I can't wait to break in those longwings and see what Barrie will fit like.
Btw, I think I've mentioned it before, but I was inclined to go with cigar PTB (also from Alden NY, I was kinda assuming I'd give in and get a #8 LWB afterwards), but it sold out in my size in front of my eyes. Well, I thought, I'm good either way colgate.gif

Thanks, I tried to snap some indoors, but wasn't too successful with the iphone camera:

Just to clarify, The 405 from Alden is not actually Chromexcel. It's just 'normal' calf leather. The Chromexcel version is the 403. 

 

This is unless you got your Indy boots from JCrew which calls their version of the Chromexcel 403 Indy's, 405.

Not sure what the protocol is regarding the Softmart irregular list....

Anyhow, they have size 9.5D of the Natural Chrome Excel Barrie Last FD-97873 listed for $299.
