    Hi All,

    I am considering getting something for casual wear (mostly jeans) and leaning towards the Indy boot on Colour 8. Any thoughts or other suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    You can't go wrong with colour 8 Indy for casual wear.
    Colour 8 Tanker boot is another great option.

    Key differences are...

    Leffot - 360 storm welt + All eyelets
    Yenni - 360 flat welt + Speedhooks

    I believe they were snagged off the TSM seconds list. The leather soul did this makeup in black and color 8 on at least two occassions and the last time was around 2012. I've been attempting to find a pair for at least two years. If anyone can get LS or Yenni (plaza is her specaility) to make these again- I'd be all over it. Plaza last is by far my favorite dress shoe last.

    PSA: I have a pair of B+M color 8 wingtip boots (Grant last, commando sole, flat welt, antique edge) in size 8.5D that will be for sale; includes box & everything as new. Just tried on, never worn out, but a faint crease shows from when I tried them on & walked around in my room/carpet (tried to not flex them, but full disclosure it's there). Wanted to mention it here before I put it up on the B&S later this week. Message me if interested.

    Only selling because I ordered the Leffot (Plaza last) wingtip boots, which I prefer the last & leather sole

    Yes Sir. These were a SMU fro LeatherSoul that I indeed scored as irregulars.

    I would be interested in getting another pair in #8 if the opportunity presented itself.

    Thanks.
