    Whoa...nice thread!

    And I hope I don't get a verbal beatdown for posting this twice, but figured I may get a better response in here:

    Yes, no? I like them, they look good/good for summer, but they're not very versatile, I don't think.

    Also, what's the deal with bucks? Do you guys think they would look good with light blue jeans, worn casually? With like a gingham shirt or a plain blue vintage Gitman OCBD or Jcrew shirt? Or does the bucks-with-khakis rule heavily apply here?

    Both would appear to be keepers, assuming they fit

    they do. my wallet is the one complaining! note to anyone in the vicinity of Norwalk, CT: do not walk into the Shoe Mart if you are trying not to spend money

    for Tom from LeatherSoul: when I walked in, the 2 sales guys immediately noticed the boots I had on and loved them. Your Kudu Ultimate Indys

    Are there any non-cordovan versions? Im not opposed to cordovan, but Id like to keep these <$500.

    It's usually like that for me. The only time I have fast loading is at 3am in the morning. But then again, I live in Canada, so [​IMG]

    The code "Janelle" will take 10% off at Sherman Brothers bringing the black cordovan ones down to $514.

    There's also the black pebble grain Black Fleece ones for $550.
    You can go to bordersrewardsperks.com and sign up for the Brooks Bros corporate discount card which will take 15% off.

    Thanks for that great info.

    ...and I thought my 500th post belonged here (since I've been on a dogged mission this past month to find my proper trubalance fit) [​IMG]
