 Right, close trim means one row of stitching, which as you note these have.  But as others have said, this "shelf" is part of the White's build.  I thought at first that it was weird and kind of goofy, but after wearing White's for a while I've really come to like it as a distinctive marker of the brand, and as something that makes the boots stand out a bit from all the fashion "work" boots you see.  And my 17 year old daughter just the other day said she thought it...
Thanks anyway..
@wonsmithr8, Am I right that you have a pair of Trench Chukkas..?  If so, how do you like them?  Do they feel/fit any different from your 6" Trench boots?  Any pics with wear?  THANKS!
^^ I still love the old monkey socks! Wear them all the time (Rockford).
 I have to say, that oiled shoulder looks really nice to me...  Never seen either one in person however.
That leather is a little too gnarly for me. But the "oiled shoulder" (whatever that is) looks really nice.
I find Iron Rangers to be slightly long and very narrow, so might depend on how wide/narrow your feet are...
Thanks for responses above guys.  Now I am curious, does anyone have the black moc toe 6" (the 9874 I think...)?  If so, how do you like the leather?  Any pics of a pair with some real wear on them?   Thanks.
Anyone happen to know what last the older Bobcats were on..?  Are they their own last..?
 Yes, just the sort I am looking for, though I'd be interested in another leather and would to find a dealer in North America who offers them. But thanks!   Yeah, I know that's always an option, at least with a cobbler (not sure about local RW stores, whether they all would do it, and in any case I don't have one nearby).  But it'd be nice not to have to go through one.  But appreciate the suggestion.
