    As for NRO:

    I'd never dealt with them, but have heard a lot of negative things about their CS...

    I placed an order yesterday, received an email today about being unable to process my order (I mis-entered my expiration date). The lady I spoke with on the phone was friendly enough and my unlined snuff LHS are being shipped to me tomorrow for just under $350.

    I'm pretty damn happy.

    I'd asked her about the availability of some stock and she explained that for most normal widths (D) they either have it or can source it from alden almost immediately.
    For some rarer items (a shell indy in a C width, for example) you're going to have that 12-14 week wait b/c that is the lead time for them to actually produce and ship you that boot.

    doesn't seem all that unreasonable esp when you're saving a buck and a half on a $600+ boot.

    Those look great worn like that. Thanks for posting photos of a makeup that doesn't get seen much. And, enjoy.

    Agreed, every time I've seen the stock photos of those I dismiss them, but they look damn good in that photo.

    If you ever wondered how the hand stitched and machine stitched indy boots look side by side. Both are cigar.

    I prefer machine stitched for the Indy. I feel ther should be a rugged utilitarian feel to the Indy boot and the machine stitching represents that to me.

    I am selling these to make room for different cigar. Please don't judge me.

    No, both are Trubalance - one is an old version, the left is the JC Indy from Leffot.

    Man, I'm so glad my shell Indys are hand stitched.

    Any good deals on #8 PTB's out there, aside from shady NRO?
