    Thanks, DV.
    The pants faded a ton, unintentionally. Epaulet does make some awesome stuff, though.
    I even had to use a color fixative on them. However, they now pair with the antique edge very well.
    Throw in the 1911 jacket today, and the look is complete.

    Winn Perry runs a preorder for the Natty CXL on Commando right now. You may want to check it out.

    I am still kicking myself for not jumping on the preorder last year. Love the look much better than my 975 on Commando.

    The color of those is outstanding! Would love for the next batch of Alt Wiens to look something like that after some wears (i.e. like Don L's...).

    I popped into Leffot several years ago looking for something else. They didn't have it, but Steven produced a random pair of cigar Indys. I'm not much of a boot person, so I passed. That picture makes me regret my decision.

    Similar make up can be found here:
    https://www.thebureaubelfast.com/shop/2214/color-8-cordovan-long-wing-blucher

    It's a little bit more expensive shipping from the UK. But I got mine from them anyway, no idea when the next pre-order is coming and how long I would have to wait for it to be delivered.

    I know JG does a lot of Plaza, but I didn't know they did an Indy.

    What are you making room for now that the Ravello captoe is sold?

    Nothing. Just trimming the rotation a bit. Not sure if anything else is getting cut yet...but maybe.

    Gotcha, how deep is your current collection? I keep saying I would like to stay around 15 pairs but it keeps growing and cutting stuff gets harder lol, maybe 20 is a better sounding number anyways.

    I have considered a further culling, but I don't know what I would get rid of.
    I just unloaded a pair of MTO AEs that never fit correctly.
