    They're just plain tan calf on a double leather sole. J. Crew says "waxed" to make them sound fancy. I've grabbed two brand new pairs to have as beaters off eBay in the last month for $300 a crack.

    My chocolate suede Modified last PT boots are a favorite if mine. They fit so well and look great. I'm tempted to wear them everyday. On the other hand, my Alden 1494s are lightweight, comfortable, and cool. It's like wearing air conditioned shoes. I lean on them heavily for my summer rotation. Those are definitely my top two boots, both suede. The Kudu Indys I also enjoy, but I lean on them for foul weather, hiking, and other heavy wear and tear activities.

    Shopping at Moulded shoe is still much, much cheaper than Anatomica or Lakota House.

    thanks!

    sadly, I don't think whiskey is going to find room in the stable.. would love some #4 eventually and a brown between ravello and cigar, so I think I'll be giving some monies to Carmina shortly

    I'm going to guess that the stock levels at Moulded likely aren't extensive. That may save you some money. :) That being said, you should absolutely stop by for a visit. I've been in very briefly and they were nice about letting me try on for fit. Of course, then I called and got on an order for a pair and I'm in on the Kudu Indy too, so that worked out for them.

    I think 10% - 12% annualized, but I can't cite that. Also, it's composition has changed.

    They are the ones to the top right^^^ You can kind of see how they compare to the ravello LWB (2nd from the the top left)

    Both of the above are J Crew calf LWB (tobacco to the right)

    ^^^In the wild, but poor quality pic, sorry

    As REguy put it, great beater shoes for a good price on ebay... cost the same as AE but much better than the calf McNeil (imho).

    Thanks and great pictures, I really like how the dark perfs on the tobacco stand out. Light bottom has a lot of character as well
