I just got a pair of these. The Whites I ordered a year ago have been a perpetual issue, and are now being replaced with a completely different boot. Since the new build time hasn't been specified yet, but is likely to be in the 8-16 week range, I went looking for a pair of shoes to tide me over and found these. Just have them on my feet for the first time today. I ordered a 10 which is my normal size and they fit fine. Obviously, they're a far cry from the out of the box comfort of a made to measure shoe (Whites based me off a 8.5FF) but they're close enough, and I'm sure the fairly lightweight leather will break in quickly. The TBC shoes are no where near the quality of the Whites or Nicks, but for $200, they're actually quite good. The finish work is all very clean, and I expect they'll exceed the normal performance I get out of a $200 shoe. To be honest, if TBC existed when I went looking for shoes last year, I'd own three pairs of these and no pairs of Whites. While the Whites were a far superior product, they've been a pita to own, have spend at least as much time at the factory as they have on my feet, and at the end of the day, I'd rather have a $200 shoe that I can throw out when I have an issue with it, than a $500 shoe that I have to treat like some kind of investment.
TBC, if you're reading this - great job identifying the market and executing.
