    Very simple. My humble contribution to Ravello Super Tuesday. Chukkas from The Shoe Mart taken without flash in natural, defused light.

    I also only buy Aldens in cordovan or suede. For regular calfskin I buy Allen Edmonds or Crockett and Jones, with a strong preference for C&J. Wish I had some Vass, too.

    This seems right, both C&J and AE make great shoes.

    I have strongly considered Alden's burnished tan, though (which I guess is "regular calf")

    Had a set of Christys put on my 8m old 405

    I'm in uni, and I couldn't deal with the block heel in classrooms and libraries. Someone please tell me if this is sacrilege; I find them rather attractive.

    Never liked the look of christies, but this turned out pretty good.

    Haha. I like it. The Indy is considered a "work boot" so why not? Btw, how much did it run you?
