Believe me, an AS "F" is an "F". Retailers call it normal, as its is their normal, but if you wear an E, stay away...
I have the same pair in Black, and I can see the same type of pattern. It must be in the construction. That said, the AS Handgrades are the most beautiful shoe straight out the box, but really the leather is not as it looks, and the wear is inferior to other shoes. It seems they have processes to make the show look good, but wear does not make them age well is my experience. The leather sticking into the top of my foot at the underside of the tongue just makes them...
My Black cherry and dark brown water buffalo      
These were mine, but sold them as Whites had advised me a full size  too large after tracings - they are bullhide and roughout. Ordered from Whites by phone, so they could have been non-standard one off colors - in fact I feel that was the case. Always worth a call to them to try one off colors.
What is going on Bingham!? Good of you to get this out in the open...
Agreed. It`s not a perfect science, and even the bookmakers can get it wrong depending on who is looking at the foot tracing (my personal experience with Whites, who sized me a whole size larger than I wear now). And they will err on the side of caution, so they can tell you to wear thicker socks if any issue surfaces. I`d go to a brick and mortar shop, and try a few sizes and settle from there. Or try Bakers, in a standard stocked boot, and return them if they don't fit....

Great ideas! The more color variation, the better in my opinion. Superb choice. That`s what allows White`s to stand out. Wear them in health!
Thanks B-ewing. This is the standard traveller 90 degree, before the mod. If bakers could offer this, I`m sure that they could snap up some good business, and we may even be able to convince Whites - who could have a great chance to develop new markets and opportunities under their new ownership.   I`m liking it more than the cuban, and seems to be a true timeless style for the classic american work boot. Here is some of brass`s work, including some...
Interesting discussion on the cuban heel - it`s been my wish as well. You may have noted that I took the boots above to Brass here in Tokyo to get an angle put on them, and they recommended that because of the issue discussed above (the fact that the two heels are in a different place, and a grind down would make the block smaller), they could only provide a small amount of grind-down. But even if Whites offered this much, I`m sure it would be popular. Another issue is...
