    Gentlemen, is there a preference amongst the faithful for either the Alden for Epaulet Innsbrook Indy or the TSM Alden #8 Bootmaker Indy, both with commando soles, Innsbrook has speed hooks and the TSM has eyelets? Chromexcel vs shell.

    I don't own an Indy but if I did my 1st preference would be the Epaulet Innsbrook or the LS Ultimate.
    Personally, I see the Indy as a CXL boot but if offered in exotic Shell ever again I might reserve that judgement...

    I try to buy shell whenever possible. I do like the Innsbrook Indy and as said above I believe it is similar to the LS Ultimate Indy. I have some #8 shell Indys coming from J.Gilbert soon (fingers crossed for Sept. delivery) and I also have a deposit in for the LS Ultimate Indy whenever they restock. So the answer in my case is BOTH!

    Do you have any Indys already?

    Simply gorgeous Uncle. I think Ravello is my favourite colour.

    I know, I really want to. I'm in the same boat as tampatravel...I'm moving into a new house in 3 weeks so there's a lot of big expenses going on with that right now. I'm trying so hard to resist any big clothing purchases in the meantime. But if that code stays valid for much longer, I don't think I'll be able to hold out...

    If it helps, most everything is very limited in sizing or on backorder.

    Yeah, my size for the captoe boots is on back order, but it would be nice to lock in this price. The only way I could beat it would be if J Crew had a 30% off sale and forgot to exclude Alden...not sure how long I'd have to wait for that to happen.

    Beatlegeuse --> Chances are those boots will arrive the same week you've bought something else in December = DOG HOUSE!

    I've refrained from asking what last those boots are on. I don't wanna know [​IMG]
