    Haven't considered suede previously, but these might change my mind! Great pickup and sounds like you got an amazing deal!

    I don't understand the part of the Mac Method where you wear the shoes on carpet so that you can return them if they don't fit properly. Is there a way to wear them for several hours without creasing the vamps, or are you just selling them on ebay if they don't fit?

    I'm actually a easy fit and know pretty well right off the bat if a shoe is going to fit. This is good since I get through day 1 of Mac method and I break down like a child with a new toy and off I go. Now I also believe it helps the toe by the sole breaking in a bit before you gouge the toe due to stiff sole.

    Very nice choice on those natural CXL LWB's El Argentino, looking forward to see how they age! I really do need to pick up a pair of those myself.

    They are from Leather Soul. A make up they did in the summer I believe.
    I believe they have a few sizes left. I just exchanged these for a pair of 10.5 D.

    my new cxl indy boots with brass eyelets/commando soles from Epaulet....

    I was always on the fence about picking up a pair of the ubiquitous 403s, whether the stock model or the slightly modified J. crew version, so I'm glad i held out for these bad boys.

    I can't tell if the brass makes these more casual or dressier than the stock 403, but either way i like them a lot.

    Great snag. Just saw those go up. Reminds me of the Officer Indy from two years ago aesthetic-wise. That similar dressy standard. Love it, looking good. Enjoy!

    Are these Color 8 LWBs? Black shell? In either case, well done and congrats on your gunboats! I love the smell of brand-spankin' new shell, fresh out of the box; nothing like it!!
