    I wonder if this also holds true for Unlined Suede LHS. Anybody have these to compare as well.

    I understand the appeal of the Indy (work)-boot, but have never grasped the shell cordovan Indy, until I saw the plaza-lasted ravelo Indy. The last certainly changes the character of the boot... outstanding! A fine trade indeed. However, I think you got the better end of that deal.

    Fine looking boots sir. I don't know who got the better end of that deal. Both boots are drool worthy.

    FYI, I'll be willing to trade $$$ for #4 wt boots size 10.

    Fyi2, alden family picture weekend is this weekend, don't forget to brush and post.

    I would state it in a slightly different way.

    I don't understand the appeal of the overall look of the Indy boot* unless it is in shell cordovan (no matter the last) and the plaza-lasted ravello Indy is wonderful.

    Plenty on here will disagree and I am fine with that. Reasonable people can disagree.

    * Unless it is literally used as a work boot.
