    Been beaten to it, but yes, Oxblood "Madison". Looks like a nice soft calf.

    I wouldn't wear indy boots with a tie. Would wear with modern trad or dress casual. Nice denim or chino and harris tweed? Surely.

    Perhaps a color 8 captoe or plain toe boot on the barrie, then. I prefer barrie to the grant because the grant is a little too dressy for me. I wear my grant boots with a suit when it's cold out. Most people have no idea it's a boot until I sit and the pant legs rise up. I originally bought them for double duty to wear with jeans, but I want something a little more substantial to stand up to my denim.

    I'd love to see pics of your boots for comparison.

    I think I have a mental block on the captoe boots. They remind me so much of my steel toed army boots from my motorcycle jacket wearing punk college days.

    Those are gorgeous! You get that much shine from just your brushing method? I can never seem to get it to shine up that much, but my current shell are all secondhand and perhaps that's the problem... or perhaps I don't brush long enough.

    Namor has some pics of his already on this thread somewhere. We have the same ones. I bought them in black. Think of a black captoe dress shoe like the AE Park Ave but with extra leather around the ankle. The edge doesn't extend much past the upper, so it is a very clean look.

    Top center left boot. The toe is more round in real life.

    Try Leegin and the long line of resale price maintenance cases. The pricing stipulations would be analyzed under rule of reason -- it is really contingent on how onerous the pricing provisons are and how good your lawyers can make up a compelling business justifications (and I want my prices to be high and make more money is not one).
