    i have no idea whether or not you are being facetious; but yes I believe he did , a pal of mine saw several pairs at a TJ Maxx in Bellevue,NE for about the same price mentioned.
    I'm serious. If they're straight legs with no funky wash (talking denim here, no chinos or anything), and if there is a pair with a 32" waist and 34" inseam (or longer) I will pay a nice finders fee for a pickup.
    Will do. [​IMG]
    You might like these, which are kind of indy boot like but more in line with your usual style: http://www.alden-of-carmel.com/index...t_Boot_228.htm No idea what they have left for sizes though.

    I recently picked up a pair of the rugged indys, i took a gamble on sizing by getting an 8, where as im usually a 9/9.5

    they fit perfect

    Those are really nice, but I'd be afraid to beat them up. Which is one of the reasons why I'm entertaining the Indy, because I like how they look worn in, beaten up etc. And I think a really worn in pair would be a nice contrast to what I usually wear.

    On the indy boots most people go down half a size. Definitely stop by an Alden store if you can.

    i thought the same, but they had me go down a full size and increase the width. better choice imo

    ^I've never been, but I know it's hidden away... maybe off the street? The entrance is a descending staircase...
