The J. Crew makeup is similar but doesn't have the all eyelets or pull-tab that I normally associate with the "Jumper" style. But really, once you have them on, your pant legs are likely to cover those details anyway.

No....they are not the same.

 

Jcrew perf cap toe boot: Barrie last, eyelets + speed hooks

 

LS Jumper boot: Tru-balance Last, all eyelets with pull tabs.

Thanks! It's taken a few years but indeed the dream make-ups are in reach!

Cigar Brixtons first time out for me today (and I agree @stevefok / can't argue against this color!!) and from last night (sorry for poor lighting) compared to #8Halleck

Does anybody have experience using these instead of the deer bone to polish shell cordovan?

I am debating between using these or the actual deer bone.

I have both.  The sleeking bone is much smaller and seems to be intended for hard to get to areas and fine tuning, thats how I use it.   The deer bone is longer and bigger.  It works well for getting rid of creases.

 

See Ya,

Steve

those look more like plaza last to me, a bit squared in the toes like the ones leathersoul had made. it says Alden for epaulet on the heel pad? still a grail for many. i can't believe i passed on the cigar brixtons when i saw them online.

Wow--gorgeous!  How long ago did EP do a Brixton on Plaza?  All the ones I have seen are on Barrie.

Context restocked the color 8 tanker recently and sold out instantly? Is that what happened?

Shot them an email about restocking.

If I can land a Plaza lasted Indy first, I'll forgo the Context Tanker.

Wearing Leffot Navals today:

Ooohh! One of my grails.

Would buy a pair in size 9.5 from anyone, even out of the back of a white van, without asking any questions.

^ Context does preorders for tankers. They likely just put up for sale one or two extra or that somebody bailed on.

You are correct, the cigars are plaza, #8 barrie.. Not sure where the 'alden for epaulet' came from in this context but these (cigar) were made up by Leather Sole
