Indy Hummus Suede (I know they're not terribly well liked around here)
the suede snuff boots
the perforated cap toe oxford boot (been eyeing these for a while, but they have been out of stock online for ages - limited edition - but maybe I'll get lucky!)
I'm also considering the plain toe boots... it will really depend on what they have in store and how I feel in person. Either way a pair is coming home with me!
And so it begins...
First things first. Put your name on a list or tell whomever is "the guy" to talk to that you definitely want a pair of color #8 Alden x J Crew cap toe boots. Next get some LWB's, preferably in #8 shell cordovan, or anything that strikes your fancy. Most importantly get the right fit. Try on everything in every size. I'm not kidding! Good luck.
