^ Speaking of a black Indy...how about one with a little toe character?

 

Barrie Tanker gets the love, but a black shell Trubalance one with Commando and hooks means business in a different way.

The cigar's are indeed getting darker and darker... The ravello x Epaulet wings are one of the best color ways I have seen....

Hadn't heard it - but assumed it.

Won't be surprised at all if that happens.

I have gotten information that leads me to believe that production is now the bottleneck as opposed to shells on hand. Designs requiring hand stitching are even more behind. I also think Alden is going to be closing for their summer break soon.

I think there will be at least a few more waves before the shells disappear again (unless Horween can keep up).

That is what I heard. The runs should flow until the end of the year or so. What is being produced now are orders that were submitted 1+ years ago.

I see Frans Boone has color 8 shell parajumpers

-#8 cordovan
-Brass eyelets
-flat cordohyde laces
-360 welt
-grant last
-d- width

Anyone in the state carry these? Trying to figure out if $819 after -21% tax then adding shipping is worth it. Thoughts?
