I initially thought about the natural edge but eventually went with the stock.

Thanks everyone! I have my share of "rare" shells but #8 is one of my favorites. I wear them more than my ravello, whiskey, or cigar for sure.

However, I'm still in line for a pair of whiskey LWB. smile.gif

I never had it as a problem on any of my shoes, no matter the material. Transfer of the indigo to the seat of my Jeep though was another issue. ffffuuuu.gif

For shoes it's LWB for me and just today I ordered the Tanker/ST boot on commando in king 8 from Citi Shoes. Can't wait to get them Tuesday.

Thanks for all the responses, just been a long time since I had indigo bleed issues. Shouldn't be an issue but just don't want to spoil my new whisky with denim.

Michigan Planner, I put trash bag on my e60 seats just to be safe today haha

Think I'm just gonna wash jeans a few times, not really trying to get any fades these days

CitiShoes was the source for both my No. 8 Tankers and No. 8 Indys.

Voltaire is wonderful to work with.

quick tip - the shoe trees they include are better suited to shoes rather than boots imo, so I ended up swapping them with pairs I had in shoes already.

Thanks, gents. Yes, Barrie last, double leather sole. A very classic boot IMO. Glad to be able to finally add it to my small, but growing collection!
