    I admire those monks. They look like they are the LS Plaza last versions, yes? Wish they would have stocked more than one pair in my size, though I suppose my bank account is happier this way. Are they as sleek as the look in the LS photos?

    I got the #8 cordovan cap-toe boot a few weeks ago, during the last sale - very happy with these on the barrie last. Actually, thinking of the black wingtip next fall.

    Got my first (and certainly not last) pair of Indy's today from Leffot. Man these boots are great and real comfortable.

    You are not the only one. No matter how many pairs I see posted, they still do not do a thing for me or make me want to add a pair to my growing collection.

    I was not loving the Indy's at first, but if you see them in person and try them on I guarantee you'll like them, if only a little bit more. Great lines, construction, fit. I am not saying you'll be a believer but you will appreciate them more.

    Whiskey Indy boots are weird (Alden on Madison has them). The Indy is a strict casual boot (the trubalance last and moc toe make it so); the whisky version on double leather soles is too fancy for its own good. Indy boots are good casual workhorse shoes- I wear mine when I want a nice durable shoe in muddy/rainy conditions (like a tailgate on wet grass / mud). They are also good general fall/winter casual boots with jeans. However, they work best in chromexel, camios, and other thicker leathers, and only on commando or the original cork sole... The only cordovan Indy that I've seen work is the cigar version on the commando sole
