You are likely to waste WAY more time time on this thread in the future.

I think you have the right idea starting out with a bang with the Cigar Indy.  The 403 is great, but it's such a gateway boot.  As soon as you get it you are going to want something in Shell.

J.Gilbert also sells the Cigar Indy with commando sole. I've seen them at Alden SF with double leather sole too. Best bet is to call around and get on a waiting list. I was on the J.Gilbert and Alden of NY lists last Summer and luckily got them in early Fall when someone backed out of a pre-order from J. Gilbert. Alden of NYC then contacted in the winter that their order was in. Good luck!

Team SF - thoughts on the offerings on J.Crew? Any that you would pick? I'm digging the LWBs in suede... just can't pick between the darker and lighter ones.

I like the cap toe color 8 boots best:

I really like the color. The example of the indys on J Gilbert's site makes them look a lot darker.

Contrary to how they may look, I neither baby nor abuse my aldens. Most get regular wipedowns and application of reno every month or two depending on how much wear they get. My cigar indys are my most casual alden and usually get the nod for a weekend trip to the park with the kids or a romp in the woods with the dog.










The saddles win. We lose.... icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gifnod[1].gif

Nicely "beat" boots... What's the sole?

There's a shot a few pages back of mine after a hike. Yeah, I am actually trying to beat up shell. Problem? biggrin.gif

Hey everyone - thanks for the feedback; just wanted to be more specific, I'm looking for a LWB. I actually have those Color 8 Captoe Boots already and they are phenomenal icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Glad we seem to all share the same taste there. So, what about them LWBs? biggrin.gif

I recently received the #8 on crepe sole. be cautious should you end up going that route, the welt is not natural colored, it's dark

B Nelson can do it, but the welt will still be dark. Don't know if that's a hang up for you or not.

Hrm, I don't see any LWBs that are just Chromexcel - maybe I'm blind? I know Leffot carries a pair though.

I have the suede longwings from J. Crew and really like them. Mine are the darker shade (I think that was the only shade offered when I got mine) and really like them. I haven't gotten much use out of them over the past few months because of the salt on the roads, sidewalks, and parking lots but in the summer and fall they are one of my favorite shoes to wear around the office with chinos and a madras shirt or a polo.

Just adding onto this, B Nelson will replace the welt for $40 in addition to the cost of a resole.
