I'm not doing any outdoors work, just want a great looking boot I can wear with chinos/jeans and that will look great after some wear.
I'd recommend the Indy in chromexcel. The chromexcel Indy looks unique (moc toe stitching stands out), the leather wears well and takes a nice sheen, and the boot is versatile (it can deal with a lot of weather conditions and looks good with both jeans and chinos in a variety of casula settings).
