GOP, those Jeffs look kinda two-tone, like a saddle/wing combo. Just gorgeous! Congrats.

She obliged. I couldn't be happier with these at $349, and even happier with the quick production. The wingtip seems a bit lighter color than the rest of the upper, but I am really liking this slight color change.

 

Question: How would you lace these? Bar lacing or a modified criss cross lacing?

 

CHILI GRAIN CALF
DARK BROWN UPPER STITCHING
FLAT CHILI WELT 

WHEELING AND FUDGING

INDEPENDENCE LINING AND INSOLE
DOULBE INDEPENDENCE OUTSOLE
EXPOSED BRASS EYELETS

Do you notice any difference in the leather on this than a standard chili grain shoe? Since the independence line has a higher quality/softer leather, I'm wondering whether they have independence quality leathers in their non standard leathers (i.e. any leather not normally offered in an independence model).

There is a definite difference in the leather. This is a very soft supple leather just like the other Independence shoes I have. I am thinking that the leather is treated to soften it.
