    You and me both, just confirmed that the delivery date is still late 2013. Was worried when I saw the new pre order with a date of hopefully mid 2014.

    I thought about jumping on the tanker they just announced, but I think I'll hold out for something on a last other than Barrie.

    I could be wrong but I believe that the stitching on the Indy boot is purely for cosmetic purposes. It isn't true moccasin construction so the stitching wouldn't change that and I doubt the stitching is pulled tight enough to change the shape of the boot in that regard either.

    Could someone with well aged #8 and Cigar LHS post them side by side? My #8s have a beautiful patina and the new out of the box cigar LHS look almost identical.

    Trying to determine if the cigar LHS are worth keeping.

    Ha! Say No To Toe (stitching) LOL

    I wonder what the time frame is on the LWB #8s

    ...would I be able to wear them to the 2016 Olympics? [​IMG]

    I "heard" that Leffot's shipping quotes are usually pretty good. First quarter 2014 sounds pretty promising!

    In my experience the Indy CXL fits fine while Indy Cordovan fits tight at the vamp, both in same size.

    Can any Tanker owners state whether or not they fit differently than their boots w/o stitching? I'm also thinking about pre-ordering. TIA!

    With the recent J.Crew coupon, got these white suede 10.5's for $392 shipped. Used Nano spray and it's amazing.

    anyone got a pic of suede aldens that they've left untreated and worn with reckless abandon? not purposefully abused, just worn on the regular.

    Looking for an answer to this too, I've been wanting a suede boot that I can carelessly stomp around in for the fall.
