    ^ Those are sweet, AlanC. One of these days I will order my own. Still made on the Trubalance last?

    The ones from LSH are made on the Trubalance last.

    I suspected it might be. The NFB's that Shoe Mart has are on the Aberdeen but aren't in shell.

    Here is the photographic evidence. The stitching seems to end short, is frayed, and veers off onto the side of the boot. The other boot isnt quite as bad but has similar fraying/veering. Acceptable or not?


    just received my new pair of 405s. are great looking boots but i did have a question about the stitching on the sole. on the left side of both boots, the stitching clearly goes off the "stitching track" on the sole, and on the right boot starts to slightly go onto the lateral surface of the sole and is slightly frayed.

    obviously hard to describe without pics, but was wondering if these irregularities are normal or if i should return them for another pair. they are of course barely noticeable to anyone not looking for it but very noticeable to me.

    ^ I wouldn't worry about that, not one bit, and especially not on Indy boots. I would think that I would have the boot re-soled before something like that would be an issue.

    CunningSmeagol said it best some time ago:

    Are LS/JCrew captoes as similar as they appear, i.e. heel loops, speed hooks... any other differences? [​IMG]

    I am in the market for a dark brown oxford.
    I am debating between these two.
    What the advantages/disadvantages of the commando sole.
    I am looking for a shoe that is versatile enough to wear with dress pants, chinos, and denim.
