Snuff suede LWBs today... Got these back yesterday from Randy the Cobbler (added brass eyelets & sealer treatment to protect and add richness to the color)

Thanks!  Such a small change but I love these more now.  I had to add them after seeing @inn8chiro's pair of snuff LWBs from Fransboone :fonz:

Thanks, tapered and hemmed w no break.

So good. The brass, dark suede, looks great.

Did you do all that with the 30 secs you saved by having speed hooks on the boots?? :p

I wish.
I really should learn how to alter my own pants. I should thrift a couple of chinos and give it a try.

Btw, I prefer all eyelets because of the way they look.

I can hem my own trousers, but I haven't attempted to taper, yet. Probably soon.

This is awesome. I would have never guessed that I would genuinely say "wow" to a video of someone lacing up boots. Well done, sir. On another note, my left hand dexterity appears to be well off par from my right.

Oh yeah, those are wonderful boots. I really like that make up.

Thanks sir!  And I agree with the comments on your tapered openings; look great.  I have 6 pants to pick up for the tailor today (just for hemming) so that would be a useful skill to have!  More money saved for purchases ;)

Got on the pre-order... couldn't resist it!  It'll be nice having a boot version snuff/brass eyelets :slayer:

What is the difference between the Leathersoul snuff suede brass boot pre-order and epaulets?

I believe the LS one is all eyes and no Commando sole.

While EP is speedhooks and Commando. Also, most sizes are spoken for with the LS boot.

AFAIK:

 

EP LS
plaza barrie
hooks eyes
commando double leather

 

Looks like the welt and heel/counter stitching is the same.
