atleast the cigar indys I also received look good. 1 out of 2 aint bad smile.gif  
what is tiger striping? Not sure I've seen that term yet. Agree your cigar Indy acquisition is more than sufficient and, added to your recent ravello scores, you should be pretty happy I suspect. Pics of Indys needed.

I would have preferred a Cigar Indy or NST, but this Cigar Full Strap is quite nice. I really don't have any loafers, so it mixes things up. I have never had a loafer fit TTS, but gambled since this was the Aberdeen, and it may work perfectly (hate to crease it testing any slipping).

indys are looking good, one step closer to wrapping up on my purchase frenzy lol

 

 

tiger striping can kind of be seen on these old NST boots I bought (and returned). those were purchased close to a year ago. weird that the NST shoe that arrived today suffers from it too, but both pair of ravello I got last month, albeit an entirely different shade of ravello, do not suffer from it.

 

some might be okay with it and chalk it up to personality of the shoe, but I'm not a fan.

 

 

the good thing is, shoemart had a pair of whiskey NST still in my size. so they'll get swapped for the ravello and all will be well :worship2:

Are those 10.5D? If not, there may still be a pair available in that size.
post #63912 of 87360

Thanks again everyone...and these are the 10D, so the 10.5 may still be there. I have a Lindrick coming tomorrow, and now my wallet is hoping the boot doesn't work.

^ Great Indys. Not helping my resolve to not buy RL/C&J Gianni, though hoping my size is gone by the time I get home. You've had quite a run - now you'll even throw some whiskey into the mix.

Once you see the LIndrick you will be fired up if the sizing works for you and miserable if it doesn't.

Fantastic as always. I keep saying that my next purchase will be a pair of monks in black or color 8 shell; somehow I always buy something else. Photos like this will keep me on the right path.
