    I was not a huge fan of the Indy, but the more pics I see like yours makes me think I need to add a pair to my collection in the future.

    It's a little late in the game, but I couldn't miss contributing to collection day.

    My collection so far
    [​IMG]

    Non-shell boots, LS Ultimate Jumper, 405, and Barrie snuff wingtip

    Cigar Indy & LWB

    #8 PBT & #8 NST

    #4 and black saddle & whiskey LWB

    The only thing missing is a pair of snuff plain toe boots that I'm planning to put on B & S.

    The Modified last is awesome. My Modified NSTs are at Alden for repair. Otherwise I'd post another photo.

    10.5D LS CXL Jumpers (new in box) will be going up on B&S as soon as I get around to taking photos.

    Renton - very nice collection! I especially like the saddles - where did you get those and are they still available?

    I got them from J. Gilbert and even though they look great, I don't find myself wearing them that often. They'll probably be making a trip to b & s soon.

    A lot of handsome shoes, Renton. I especially like the snuff wingtip boots. Was that a Leather Soul make-up?

    Very nice C&J for RL Wingtips Uncle. Thought for a second they were the Edward Green brown crup WT that Leather Soul had a while back but the RL WT is lovely.

    Can't get the RL WT in my territory but am expecting delivery this week of it's cousin, the ready to wear C&J Pembroke made on the same last but in tan grain calf on a dainite sole.

    Perfect for wet Northern European pavements!

    Bit the bullet on the JCrew captoe boots yesterday. We all know what they look like but I'm still excited enough to post a picture [​IMG].

    Looks stunning, uncle. My pair unfortunately doesn't fit me as well, I should have sized down a half.

    Anyone interested in a pair of 9D RL Marlows? Should be a good fit if you are 9.5D, I also put Topys on them.
