Looks great half!!  The king George boot really intrigues me. This is a very solid collection.

I have a pair - it seemed to fit like the aberdeen so went TTS. My hunch is that a few pairs were mis-lasted on Aberdeen instead of Barrie. Don't know if the tightness is an issue across the board. Just ask the leffot ppl (call/email) for sizing advice

Not if you already applied wax. Wait till next time you need to condition.

 

Condition then wax.

My shell Tankers fit like every other Barrie lasted shell and calf boot I own.

I highly doubt this is the case. I have both Barrie and Aberdeen(tts) lasted boots.

+1 on both counts.

(top row, l to r) black shell tanker (SF), black trapper calf PT boot (TSM), king shell tanker (SF), Innsbruck (Epaulet), Taunton (Epaulet), natty CXL (North River Outfitter)

(bottom row, l to r) black shell monk (TSM), king shell George (TSM), king shell medallion CTB (SF), ravello chukka (DC?), cigar LWB (DC?), whiskey SW bal (DC)

(ravello and cigar were second-hand)

I'm also on the preorder for the king shell Alt Wien (Epaulet) but who knows when that will come through.
Really cool to see the King George. Kinda wish it was more popular around here. I can't say I've ever seen it on feet.

Strongly considering send my stock 403 off to get some bling. I had never seen brass hardware on a non-commando stock Indy, but found these at Fransboone (of course). I had originally intended on having mine resoled on commando when the time comes, but I'm currently infatuated with the NeoCork sole. Thoughts?

Note: their boots do not have the white accent stitching around the opening. Only one of my boots has it haha.

My Leffot tankers fit the same as every other barrie boot.

Is there a difference between TSM Brown CXL Plain Toe and Leffot special order version?
The Leffot version looks fantastic to me while TSM looks a little lackluster...
The welt looks a shade lighter on TSM but beyond that is it just the quality of the photos?

I have seen and tired on the TSM boot IRL and its a fine boot. I have not seen the Leffot boot in person but to me they look identical. I have a feeling it was a special item that Leffot will no longer offer but TSM picked up instead. 

 

Hopefully someone else can weigh in and offer some expertise.

Look absolutely identical to me... Just better photography and color balance... Both are Barrie Lasted with an Antique Edge and Commando Sole with a 270 degree split-reverse welt and brass hardware... Even seems that they both have the same back end... If you like either, then I would pounce... I would guess that they have the same model number...

Does anyone size differently in Barrie vs. TB?
