Very nice, DV. On commando too? Where from?

And the trousers might be even sweeter.

Super under-rated.  I have the Kirkwood Color 8 Cap Toe boots on Commando from Unionmade 2014.  They ran them the last time they also ran the Halleck with dark edges on commando.  

 

It's a barrie lasted boot, which I know some/most prefer the Grant version (4060 or 4060HC), but the Grant last doesn't work well for those with a narrow heel and low-instep... atleast in a non-custom size.  These have speed hooks and commando so they're a great boot for everyday use.  I'm a huge fan!

Size 12D Grant lasted color 8 wingtip boots with antique flat welt on commando are on their way back to TSM. Unfortunately the grant last is not a good fit. It's a bit narrow in the toe box but sloppy in the ankle, which is exactly the opposite of what I need with my duck feet.

These were on the irregular list, so they should be available in a week or so. Here are the defects:

Wonky stitching on the back:

Those are Monday Boots...

Wow, those look pretty messed up. I guess it makes sense...you hear folks talk about getting seconds with such minor defects that there not noticeable at all. There had to be the opposite of that....

I'd jump on a pair but I already have a some with a black edge.

Thanks!

These are superb, IMO ravello is the best shade of cordovan. Its unfortunate that they are so difficult to acquire. This is the only piece of ravello I've got my hands on yet..

Nice looking WT Boots Henry! Glad that you got to make the rounds. You hit up some mighty nice stores! :-)

Wow, glad that my NYC post was useful! Glad to help! Citi and Madison aren't that far apart. :-)

Thanks guys!!! The pants were their maiden voyage, a recent MTO from Epaulet. I was soo excited to wear them, that I thought that they deserved the pairing of the WT Boots. :-) Your pair will be along soon Steve! I think Ravello can't be that much further out!

Those look great Chris. Really like the whole combo in picture number 3, but I really like purple and blue in general for some reason.

Hi everyone.  New to the forum.  Long time wearer of Alden LWB's for corporate wear.  Recently got into boots.  Hooked!  Does anyone apply taps/plates on heel/toe for protection?  Thanks!

Thank you ironclad. They're from leffot. Commando is my favorite sole. The epaulet pants are a pretty sweet.

I wonder if a similar stitching issue is what caused my black shell PT boots to be seconds. They have black calfskin patches over the back ankle area, though, on each boot, which is really wonky. Although the pattern is somewhat different on these - the Grant boots have a stitched seam running up the middle of the back of the boot, whereas these have a long and narrow piece of shell running up the back.
