    I have these same boots and they're absolutely fantastic. I wear 3-4 diff colour 8 boots and I usually wear jeans with all of them. Get nothing but compliments on them!

    On J gilbert's site they have the indy boots in #8 with what looks like the old MACHINE stitching. Is this correct or is it the angle? Can anyone confirm. I've been looking for the old machine stitching on either #8 or Cigar FOREVER. I thought all cordo indy boots were hand stitched now. If anyone can point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.

    I got my #8 Indys from J. Gilbert and they were hand stitched (see pic above)

    Patiently waiting the delivery of my new J Crew #8 Cap Toe Boots.

    Should have them by the end of the day.


    Did I say patiently?


    Well, maybe not patiently.

    Id honestly give up on your search unless someone has a old pair they are wiling to part with. Sadly Alden doesnt do machine stitching on cordovan indys anymore.

    looks great. the pink thread of the momotaro denim reads nicely with the #8.

    There's a grant last make up of this at alden nyc that looks pretty great as well.

    While I'm here I might as well share some pics of my now correct sized Leffot day trippers that I took a couple weeks back.
    Thanks again wigglr for buying my 10.5Ds to help me get these!

    No longer waiting.

    I need to take some pics probably a bit later on.


    Oops, I think this pair convinced me that Ravello would be a nice addition for my next pair.

    thanks guys. That Jgilbert picture is totally misleading but I will continue to search. At least I know I'm not going crazy, for a second I thought was seeing things.
