Give them your size.

Been hit or miss for me. Received the list once and have not seen another, but have heard of people getting it. So missed one already this year.

I just started with TSM seconds list.  I received the last two emails.  Seems to be going fine so far.  I also get misc marketing emails from them.

Have a camping trip with my students coming up, brought out the 404 Kudu Indys from storage. These have been through multiple camping trips, broken glass all over bars, a few feet of snow / ice /sleet and normal everyday wear. My first pair of Aldens (damn you Barney's for introducing me at such a great price) and still looks pretty new and lug sole is showing just a little bit of wear. Only care I've down is wipe down and a light coat of neatsfoot oil before putting the boots away. These are probably my best fitting boots as well, fits smaller than my 403 Indys and is literally the best fitting shoe I own with a pair of merino wool hiking socks.

I'm not familiar with the chromexel leather, but the leather my calfskin Indy boots are made from feels plenty thick. It's likely that they use varying thickness of leather for different styles of shoes/boots. The leather in these Indy boots feels like proper, burly work boot leather.
