Speaking of black, I just got some pimp-tacular A. Testoni zip side boots in black. Will share with you guys Saturday which is when I plan to take them out. Justin they are right in your wheelhouse. Hope I can pull them off.....
Stitch thanks they are new old stock brooks brothers made in USA from eBay. Got these, navy and burgundy all with paisley action. They are terrific OTC and stay up all day, very thin toe seam so no irritation. One of those nice eBay experiences
Yes exact same size, they fit a little snugger in the vamp/ lace up area and heel.
Marlows are a bit looser there and the (albeit small) difference makes the overall fit better.
Plus I'm very enamored with the pebble grain.
