I tried TTS and found it long and narrow. I had some pinching discomfort with the captoe. I think 1/2 down and 1 width up may have worked better for me. Grant is one you should try on yourself if possible.

Are you sure? They look to be a darker shade of ravello and don't say Alden for Jcrew on the insole.

Crumby quality, but for those of you wondering, the snuff suede BB tassels and the Allen Edmonds snuff belt. The belt is several shades darker. These tassels are also much lighter than my snuff LWBs. They're far enough away from each other that I don't think it's that discernible when you wear them (also this is bad lighting).

I agree with this, I think he had it done post facto. I am planning to do this exact thing so that I can get a 10.5B... :-)

I did try and take videos, but forgot to bring my Tripod and tried to use my iPhone. Holding a phone, boot, and brushing at the same time equates to a rather shakey video. As I don't want to make everyone nauseous, I decided to not post. However, I took pictures of every single step.

Enjoy!

Awesome post Mike! I'm going to deer bone a bit more (get your heads out of the gutter!)

Mike, who are you thinking of using for the brass eye conversion? I've been thinking about converting my dc pair.

B. Nelson. I may go with Ah One in DC area. Kathy is going to ship my next pair straight to NY for me. :-)

Mike, if you started referring to Kathy as your Aunt tomorrow it would not surprise me.

Aunt Kathy is reaching Uncle Mac status.

This is such an Awesome thread. Makes me laugh all the time.
