    Well after almost a week's wait, the shell Indy's arrived straight from the Middleboro factory today...wish my camera could catch the brilliant #8 color

    Do you all think they are appropriate for this style of dress? This type of trouser and shirt/sweater combo is what I typically wear in the office (no tie, no jacket on most days).

    Shoes: appropriate. Junk: inappropriate.

    Shoes look fine with what you're wearing.

    Thanks

    Will take some getting used to for office wear, as they are a much bulkier profile compared to any other shoe I typically wear to work

    Love the fit though right out of the box

    this is just a question of whether or not you like Indy boots. I don't. imo they are just clunky work boots

    Well I definitely like the Indy boot. I have the 403 but never wear that pair to work, unless I'm in the factory, which is rare these days.

    The shell, combined with the subdued stitching, is why I figure I can pass it off in the office. But I could be wrong.

    True, I noticed a pocket flare after wearing them for the second time. They're RLBL that I picked up on sale, but they aren't egregious enough for me to give em up

    WTF man??? This thread should be NSFW.

    Ditch the RLBLs. They're not for you.
