    Looking forward to picking up a pair of the J Crew Indy Boots. Unfortunately, they're sold out of them for about a month, which gives me some more time to save up!
    I'm a 10D in Allen Edmonds Wingtips...would this make me a 9.5 for the Indys?
    I figured I'd ask, though I should also go to another store that carries Indys and try on a pair...


    You should be fine with a 9 1/2D

    I can deal with living vicariously through you. [​IMG]

    I'm looking for a 35mm belt to go with my #8 Alden Longwings. I want it to have a silver color buckle, if possible. Anyone know where to get one? I looked at Ben Silver's belt and I'm not sure if it is 30mm or 35mm, plus it has a gold color buckle.

    Has anyone noticed that all cigar indy boots are storm welted while the color 8's seem to omit the storm welt? I wonder why that is...

    Maybe there are some color 8 indy releases that do have a storm welt. But I haven't seen it.

    Has anybody purchased either of the 2 J Crew versions of the Longwings?
    Real life pics? Do the colors look similar to what is posted on the site?


    Ones on the left are close to the j crew pics (but shinier), ones on the right are not.

    Anyone know the "key" to decipher what the series of numbers on the inside of Alden Shoes/Boots means?

    I know the Size and Model number. I am referring to the other long string of numbers.

    Thanks .

    Thanks for the pic.
    About to order the tobacco ones.

    Ones on the left are close to the j crew pics (but shinier), ones on the right are not.

    Leffot calls their cigar boots the 'J.C. indy boot' but they are no longer taking orders for it (according to the site).
