    We are on exactly the same page - you are correct. I never thought otherwise.

    I'm not sure I would get much use of these Carmina Jumpers but they sure are purrrrty. Congrats on them!

    You can also count me as another one that enjoys all shoes. I have blasphemous brands like "Converse and Vans even a pair of Ugg's" still that are staples in my wardrobe.

    Love this shoe.

    This make-up is identical to one offered by Alden NYC, Leffot, and others except that the J.Cre make-up pictured here uses brass speedhooks whereas the ones I mentioned used brown speedhooks. I have the Alden NYC version and if I had a choice, I would choose the brass. This is a great looking make-up and it is very comfortable.

    ^ Is it fair to say this is a total Indy boot copycat? (it is not made by Alden)

    Throw me into that mix as well, I am continually puzzled at the "dry" shell reference to the visual representation of a plastic finish looking "wet"

    I have a completely unfinished natural shell Fat Herbie from Ashland that is packed full of oil, but doesn't have a nice Acrilyc top coat so isnt quite as reflective....

    It's definitely one of my favorite pick ups. Unique.

    Been wearing them more than my natty CXL Indys.

    Brutal day at work, but I got through it knowing that my Whiskey brothers were also out there in good form.

    Latest Alden boot from Leffot - in Navy CXL. Just got these in recently after a 9 month wait (pre-order back in Oct. 2013). The comfort is outstanding, and as long as the crepe sole holds up, I am extremely happy with this pair. Especially love the brass hooks (4) and eyelets (5), along with the natural welt.

    We only think that (and would never buy one of those boots) because we're Aldie aficionados. I actually don't blame J. Crew for piggy-backing off the popularity of the Indy boot. Pretty savvy of them.
