split vs flat welt.

Thanks.  To my unrefined eye the difference is minimal but I think I do slightly prefer the Leffot version.  If I didn't already own that version, and was looking for a tanker, I'd grab these without spending another second worrying about the difference.

I slightly prefer the Leffot version (wearing them today, too) with the flat welt. There is a bit less antique going on down there with the flat welt. I think the split reverse is a bit too much for me.

My gut feeling is for the flat welt as well.

Buda, you are right. Just don't know when will the Leffot version be available again, plus you have to pray that you click fast enough to beat others and get your size (The last run sold out in Flash) then another many months for production......... I am satisfy with the NY version. :lol:

I do agree with mr.tifosi but congrats to everyone who's getting Alden NY Tankers!

I like the Leffot Version better as well, but am still extremely tempted by these as it was my intention to preorder the Leffot version next time they came up.

 

Wish I knew whether or not Viberg was actually going to release those Navy Shells.

Not to break up the Tanker talk (I do love those BTW!). Maiden voyage for my new King WT Boots with Commando (cold and snowy day here in MI)

Aside from the amount of antique. I think flat welt version looks a bit better because it looks sleeker.

Yeah it was for #8, there was lots of confusion about the Navy.

 

They were up in 2 sizes and than mysteriously gone. Noone really knows any details other than they exist.
