true...and on top of that the price alone makes it very desirable

Noob question: I don't have any nice shoes, just some beaters for work, runners, and some canvas sneakers for summer. Should I pick up the Indy boots or will there be something that's more versatile with my wardrobe (some chinos and jeans?) I've only really seen the Indy fit with jeans which raised this question. Thanks!
Black shell is desirable because for one, you need at least one pair of black shoes for things like funerals, and Black shell is way better than Black calf. Way easier to keep a shine on, lasts longer, doesn't get nasty looking cracks/creases over time, etc, etc.
Shell is not just about color variations. It's a better material any way you look at it.
PM me if you are interested. Thank you.
A black calfskin shoe is essential, but I'm liking how black cordovan PTBs and chukkas look in the sun. I rarely wear my black balmoral cordovan boots (hard to get on and off, too chiseled of a last to wear casually), but they look good when I do
Really depends on your feet and what you want to do. To keep things simple, you could get the same size in all Barrie Aldens and could wear a thicker sock with the LWB and be fine.
Or, you could size down on just the LWB and probably also be fine. For me, I can wear 8.5D in all barrie Aldens except LWB, which I can wear 8D with thin socks, or 8.5D and thick socks.
Cool. :) I'm actually working on a video on my Lyr amp as we speak. Should be up in my channel tomorrow.
