    Agreed. The J Crew version is nice. As is, of course, the Leather Soul Hawaii Ultimate Indy. Both with chromexcel.

    that is what really sets it apart for me. iirc Alden is dropping some Indy's with chromexcel (403's i think?) for a smaller price surcharge (like $395)

    Wondering if anybody has applied Obenauf the the above and what were the results like? Wondering if I should just pick up the above and darken it with some Obenauf.

    Thanks

    anyone know what last the Orvis Aviator boots are? And how do they fit? The orvis site says TTS, but the Indy v. aviator thread or some other thread I read said that the aviator and indy are on the same last?

    pretty sure its a plain-toe indy on trubalance last. many websites claim everything is TTS. be careful.

    Waxed indys look amazing. Does anyone have a picture of what obenauffed indys look like? I tried the sufu boots that look better with age thread but after the first hundred pages gave up. Nevermind found one [​IMG] Looks about the same as the waxed indys.
