    LOL, thanks - just been anxiously watching and waiting on the Lindrick's return. I missed them last year, as they were out of my size by the time I saw and considered them.


    + Marlow PTB

    I actually asked for the shell cordovan one when I called in and got my PTBs last year, and the guy said they don't carry that color. I said, ok, give me the brown ones.

    LOL. All this chatter has got me eyeing the Lindrick again...but it's unjustifiable in California.

    Yeah I called a store to check if they were available by asking what shell cordovan they had in stock, and the SA told me he didn't know of any stock like that. When I said brown wingtips he said yeah they had a FSR




    I've been wearing shell in the 100+ degree San Fernando valley heat, pretty wearable even in terms of boots

    I can't get used to the broguing across the ankle:

    Don't get me wrong, they are great looking boots but they'd be perfect without that IMO.

    I know what you mean but that's actually one of the reasons I got them. I already have the Carmina equivalent in saddle shell below:

    I wanted something similar but darker and it came down to a choice between the Lindrick and the the Carmina in cognac shell which is coming up soon in an Epaulet restock. I decided to go with something a little different, hence the Lindrick.

    Since you don't like the brogueing, the Carmina might be just what you're after.

    Last October was when most of the Lindricks were purchased. I believe I paid $650-$700 after shipping and taxes. Great price for a C&J shell boot
