More pics and info on where to buy on my blog.

These are gorgeous and the Bureau is awesome but are they seriously $900+ or is there some VAT discount I'm missing?

Thanks, gents. Took me forever to find these things, and I couldn't be more pleased. I like having all eyelets, the 360 degree welt and commando sole to differentiate them from my other Indys too.

I think for now, my Indy boot collection is full: cigar, whiskey, #8 and black shell, 405s, reverse chamois and brown chromexcel. What's next? Ravello? #4? Haha, yea right...

LS x SF boot in #8 on the Plaza last today.

false...i hate to say it but that's true. I was fortunate enough to snag the last nine and since it had been tried on around the shop (and not outside), Gareth was able to make me an offer I couldn't refuse...

You need suede! Tom mentioned chocolate brown coming soon.

Picked up another longwing, this time from ebay. Alden 639 on the truflare last. Shoe is surprisingly sleek for a longwing. Heel has the same trubalance rubber heel as does my indy 403. Another nice feature is the scotchgrain : )

Nice find, but there's nothing sleek about the truflare.

Those are great looking boots...and you're exactly right! I need those. Not in chocolate brown suede though, Ibut 'd love to get some tan or snuff suede. If Tom's gonna have those in the spring, I am just going to have to pick them up.

Compared to my Barrie last cordo LW, Grant last cordo LW, & Tremont last cordo WT, they are pretty sleek

Also consider the baroquing. The aforementioned shoes can look bulky regardless of last due to the thicker leather detailing.

Will a store in the United States please make up a batch of these?

Love at first sight!

Just wondering when sending in shoes for resoling, if Alden can change the welt on the shoes. (i.e. originally close heel welt ----> let's say, 360 storm welt)
