    Thanks Trapp.



    Correct.

    Pleasantly surprised that these hand stitched. [​IMG]

    Pardon the ignorance...but how can you tell if they are hand stitched or not? Is there a tell-tale pattern or something? thanks.

    This
    Handsewn looks like Frankenstein's monster stitches.

    A plain toe boot like the LS variant in this suede would be incredible.

    Nice. I was close to going for a pair of ShoeMart's #8 Indy boots (which look identical to those if I'm not mistaken) when I stumbled on the cigar leffot indy's I just got.

    That's because those ARE the #8 Indys from ShoeMart [​IMG]

    Ah right, I read those posts about J Gilbert and got confused. I think they offer the same #8 indy with commando sole, or did at one point. Riiight.

    I had the color 8 Gilbert's for a couple of months but sold them after sizing wrong. Unless J.Gilbert had a different run, theirs have eyelets and no hand stitching along the toe. That's why this particular offering from ShoeMart is so unusual.
