Six more inches of snow on the ground today for the winter that never ends. cloud.gif That's no deterrent to wearing the whisky Indy boots though.

Crazy demand for these tankers. I remember purchasing mine in 2012 and my size was available weeks after the initial e-mail, it was also much cheaper!

Great boot though, probably the first shoe I reach for.

What I am trying to do is made a concrete list of shoes that would work in my collection and stick to it, buying only when a sale, used pair or pre-order pops up. 

 

So far:

RL Lindrick

Alden 975 (probably pick up used)

Alden Leffot Tanker

AE brown cordovan Strand (Waiting for a pair of seconds on sale)

Hahaha, that is the exact pic I have saved to remind me about the Leffot Tanker!

Can't decide if I should pre-order these or wait for the NST boot on the Plaza last from J Gilbert. Whenever those become available... Would prefer a Plaza last but really like the antique edging... The more I look at the Leffot Tankers, the nicer they get.

That makes so much sense not that you say it! Thank you!

Haha. Tampa never lets a NST discussion go without mentioning me!

Wow those Tankers sold out quickly! Amazing. They did not sell out that quickly last time.

Exactly what I was referring to. That's an awesome picture, I want some of that. My #8 plaza boots w black edge are great but feel dressier than the tankers.

Sweet looking boots Erik. I hope to share photos of mine in a few months. Our grass stayed green and I didn't get to wear my new heavy trousers. Winter skipped us this year. musicboohoo[1].gif I am bummed about my tweeds and cords. there's always next year, just hope my waist size doesn't change.

Do you guys think it's completely ridiculous to preorder the tankers if I am already getting very regular use out of the Plaza king indys? The only differences are the plaza vs barrie last, antique vs dark edging and split toe vs non-split toe. I just really like the antique edging and the shape of cordovan boots on barrie, of which I have several. Is this too much of a redundancy in the collection or should I save the money? Please don't answer in the negative simply to eliminate my 8.5 size from the competition wink.gif

Not completely ridiculous. Not even kind of ridiculous. biggrin.gif
