I know there are Color 8 LWB with antique edge and welt, but Leffot had an Alden #8 LWB that had antique edge with black welt.
I am having an old pair of Florsheim Royal Imperial LWB resoled and wanted to know if I should step up and have B. Nelson replace the black welt with antique.
Mike - Thanks!! I probably could have gone 11B on the Aberdeen last. Cursed with skinny heels. The aberdeen fits ok. Not perfect. I'm going to try a pair on before committing so i'll let you know the results.
I actually spoke to Nick last week. Thinking about sending in a pair of close to NOS Florsheim Royal Imperial cordovan longwings in for a resole to red dainite and natural edge/welt. It was a $245 job. I think it would look great though with the brass eyelets as well!
