I have these same boots and they're absolutely fantastic. I wear 3-4 diff colour 8 boots and I usually wear jeans with all of them. Get nothing but compliments on them!

the pic above is also #8 and denim...just plain ol' Levis...post #36948 of 12241610/30/12 at 2:17pmOn J gilbert's site they have the indy boots in #8 with what looks like the old MACHINE stitching. Is this correct or is it the angle? Can anyone confirm. I've been looking for the old machine stitching on either #8 or Cigar FOREVER. I thought all cordo indy boots were hand stitched now. If anyone can point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.post #36949 of 12241610/30/12 at 2:51pmQuote:Originally Posted by rolling green

I got my #8 Indys from J. Gilbert and they were hand stitched (see pic above)post #36950 of 12241610/30/12 at 2:54pmpost #36951 of 12241610/30/12 at 3:04pmQuote:Originally Posted by rolling green

Id honestly give up on your search unless someone has a old pair they are wiling to part with. Sadly Alden doesnt do machine stitching on cordovan indys anymore.post #36952 of 12241610/30/12 at 3:12pmpost #36953 of 12241610/30/12 at 3:13pmQuote:
looks great. the pink thread of the momotaro denim reads nicely with the #8.
There's a grant last make up of this at alden nyc that looks pretty great as well.post #36954 of 12241610/30/12 at 3:25pmWhile I'm here I might as well share some pics of my now correct sized Leffot day trippers that I took a couple weeks back.
Thanks again wigglr for buying my 10.5Ds to help me get these!
First pair Ive gotten that has the lucky stamp inside!post #36955 of 12241610/30/12 at 3:46pmpost #36956 of 12241610/30/12 at 4:28pmQuote:
No longer waiting.
I need to take some pics probably a bit later on.
Oops, I think this pair convinced me that Ravello would be a nice addition for my next pair.post #36957 of 12241610/30/12 at 4:28pmpost #36958 of 12241610/30/12 at 5:33pmpost #36959 of 12241610/30/12 at 5:46pmpost #36960 of 12241610/30/12 at 5:58pmQuote:
I think those are the same pictures they and Alden of Carmel have been using for a loooong time.
