Thanks for a great picture

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!

On 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.

I got my #8 Indys from J. Gilbert and they were hand stitched (see pic above)

Patiently waiting the delivery of my new J Crew #8 Cap Toe Boots.

 

Should have them by the end of the day.

 

 

Did I say patiently?

 

 

Well, maybe not patiently.

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.

that's my impression too, though the j gilbert photo def has machine stitching...

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.

While 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!

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.

thanks guys. That Jgilbert picture is totally misleading but I will continue to search. At least I know I'm not going crazy, for a second I thought was seeing things.

Who knows, they may have an old pair in stock?

I think those are the same pictures they and Alden of Carmel have been using for a loooong time.
