I mean, I am very happy to have gotten my whiskey shortwings, but the laces touching --the same with the Brooks Brothers shorwings-- as there is so much room is a pet peev.post #76924 of 1224163/24/14 at 6:10pmpost #76925 of 1224163/24/14 at 6:17pmpost #76926 of 1224163/24/14 at 6:24pmThoughts on the newest Indy from Need Supply?

I think some go down a half size on Tremont. Seemed like too much room with a high cut around the ankle when I went TTS.post #76928 of 1224163/24/14 at 6:26pmpost #76929 of 1224163/24/14 at 6:29pmpost #76930 of 1224163/24/14 at 6:29pmQuote:Quote:Originally Posted by smoothie1

Hello all. I promise I searched and searched trying to find the info but searching for 'Indy 403 type of leather' was like looking for a needle in a hay stack. I am looking at a used pair of Indy boots. From the pictures, they appear to be in good shape. When I asked which model these are, the seller responded with 'Style 403, "Mocc Toe Blucher Boot. Brown Aniline' - I cannot figure out are these the chromexcel or classic brown. They look dk brown in the pics but lighting can be so misleading.
BTW, what leather is the classic brown?
Thank you very much!post #76933 of 1224163/24/14 at 6:48pmQuote:
Even though I have enjoyed perhaps hundreds of Mac's posts, due to his succinct comments, I actually know very little about him. I had started to create a Bill Brasky-like persona for him in my head.
It is interesting to know members' backgrounds, as we all share an addiction that is questionably more expensive than some street drugs, and have to pay for it one way or another. Further, although many of us are posting periodically throughout the day, I suspect many of us are checking in between meetings and deliverables. We should create a LinkedIn group:Dpost #76934 of 1224163/24/14 at 6:49pmpost #76935 of 1224163/24/14 at 6:51pm
