The best of this bunch is the snuff Conley boot. I have previously not purchased these because there were no E widths - that's no longer an issue...

To each their own.

I have sold my marble suede Indy boots, but they did get a lot of compliments when I did wear them.

I think I have to agree.  The ankle broguing pattern on the Lindrick is odd.  Also, looks like this Cigar is darker than the RL brown shell.  Such is not the case with my marlows and cigar LWB.  I wish my cigars were darker, but I suppose that is how/why my Marlows work in my rotation.

 

Lastly, I didn't know the Brixton didn't have a 360 storm welt.

I actually like the RL's better.

For me they are narrow in the toebox and wide in the heel. It's a tough last to fit properly. I would recommend that you try this one on before you buy it sight unseen. As always, YMMV.

Leffot's new pre-order page is very interesting, it seems you can request a non-stock size now. They didn't have this option back when I tried to pre-order the navy suede LWB. Hopefully they have this option open if they pre-order those navy suedes again

The version from Epaulet. Not the best photos, but you get the idea. I bought them in part because they aren't like anything I have. Oh, and shiny brass eyelets and speed hooks. nod[1].gif

Very Jazzy, Sir.  Especially with that hat!

 

Have you considered getting a cane?

 

 



This is just one of the reasons why I hate button-fly pants.

fly choice is srs bsns!

Duly noted.  Luckily I haven't had that problem.

 

Still I think the benefits of the zip-fly outweigh the risks.

I have a cane somewhere from my college days. Should look for it.

Agree with you on that second shot. It's a little racy the way the fly is presented. Apologies to the gentlemen here. A definite hazard of that style of shooting one's feet.
