    Yeah that Plaza Indy looks nice. I'm definitely in for that. I hope we can get 12 people in on this.

    If the Plaza is TTS then I would be interested in a pair, since I can not get he Thor boot, since it is on the Barrie. Any one else interested in a tanker style? I want to get one brown boot with tan accent stitching and the Indy and Tanker both have the stitching.

    Can someone confirm what this mto has evolved to at this point? And is it suede? I heard mention of CXL before.

    As of right now it seems this is most popular:

    Dark brown suede Indy
    Plaza last
    Commando sole
    All eyelets
    Antique edge trim
    Reverse welt (360 or 270 - I think I actually prefer 360 for Plaza last, but I'm open to either)
    Leather pull tab (I'd prefer no tab but this can be removed easily)

    Nobody mentioned eyelet type yet, but I think matched eyelets would look best (not really a fan of brass or blind eyelets for this model). CXL I think is a decent option but there are already so many CXL Indy choices out there, it's much more difficult to find a brown suede Indy.

    I think brass eyelets could look good and give a bit of pop but I am fine with matched as well

    I would agree also with no pull tab for this makeup, but as you say it is easily removed

    I think the 360 welt would look better on the plaza as well.

    I'm good with no pull tab. I just threw that in there.

    I think the brass eyelets would look good too, but I'm ok with either.

    We are looking at 8-9 right now.

    I'm in, though I don't know if brass/gold eyelets will look good with dark brown suede, I prefer matched

    i agree.

    I wonder if anyone has offered a similar mockup in the past that can be pasted to this thread.

    I think the 270 looks slimmer, which I prefer, but I'll go with 360 if that's the consensus. I'm also good with no pull tab.

    I am in too and would prefer brass eyelets and pull tab (if that is the consensus). Everything else looks stellar.

    I definitely prefer the look of the eyelets on the LS version in the above link. This MTO will most likely end up looking pretty much like that except all eyelets vs speedhooks and Plaza last.

    Alrighty, it looks like the consensus is thus far:

    Dark brown suede Indy
    Plaza last
    Commando sole
    All brass eyelets
    Antique edge trim
    Reverse welt

    Still undecided is:
    360 vs 270
    Leather pull tab vs no tab

    Why don't we put these two issues to a vote and finalize the match up details...

    My vote is for:
    270
    No tab

    My vote is 270 and yes on the pull tab.
