    Definitely miss my Cigar Indys. Will have to get them in the right size some day, but I need the Madison Ave or Epaulet version, so I've got to be on the ball.

    And I hate Alden's laces - I swap them out on pretty much all my boots.

    I do not know if these have been posted already, but they are so tempting. Even with a 30% off coupon I do not dare to buy them, my wife would kill me :embar:

    I am SHOCKED that those boots are offered at only $1127.00. Do you actually have access to a 30% off code for these. That would make them $788 for a pair of EG boots. I couldn't claim to have a detailed understanding of EG pricing but that strikes me as a bargain. Are these constructed to normal EG standards?

    I have not seen them IRL. I'm afraid the code will only work with my account. The Matches customers probably received similar 30% off codes.

    As I am in Switzerland, VAT is deducted and the price without shipping would be 583 euros. Still a bit too much, I am not familliar with EG sizing, so I would not take the risk. Sounds like a good deal indeed

    imo, the flat laces are not a good choice on the wingtip. i don't care for the indy - it's a hideous boot, imo. unless you use it for his distinction.

    this amount is quite steep for a gemmed shoe?

    I do.


    One shoe size smaller, and I would be under some financial attack.
