41. Reverse Tobacco Chamois Wing Tip Boot, Barrie last, Commando sole.

Maybe - I want the all eyelet version. Any idea if Yenni's is all eyelet?

I think Context was all eyelets this last go around...I ordered but really don't recall.

I really wish the greenwich was spaced out a little further in the year cause I want that boot too.. can't do both so close together though ugh.. Guess if I can't snag a pair of tankers, I'll shoot for that instead..

Ah, good thinking. I have no idea, I'm afraid.

The Context tanker was with speed hooks. I just checked in with them today actually and we hit 12 and the order was submitted to Alden on 5/1. Should have them in time for Thanksgiving, hopefully.

I ordered the Epaulet Ironside since it is all eyelet and will sell my black Indy's as I am not a fan of speedhooks.

Oh well, did they confirm the Brass eyelets? Perhaps that is what made me bite on it. If not I will have them converted -

How are the Leffot Tankers sized on Barrie vs Jcrew captoes on Barrie? I mean are they equally snug?

Yenni's version has hooks and a flat welt.

Last: Barrie
Design: Tanker

Welt: reverse
Edge: antique
Sole: commando
Hooks+eyelets
Pull tab

 

Not sure on the brass. Doubt it.

That's the cigar I love. I must have visited alden sf after you did because I bought one of those (2 sizes too big) and freaking love it.
Wipe w damp cotton rag, 5 min brush.
My pc screen saver USED to run photos from our picture folders. Had to change that after company saw a few shoefies.

This makes me laugh like hell. Glad I read the thread... Full disclosure .. Been there..

Thanks I think you are right---it was probably the antique edge that was the selling point...will def. have them converted to all brass eyelets - cant wait for these!  thanks again

I just jumped on Yenni's Reverse Tobacco boot or else I'd kop the greenwich.

Already own the tankers in #8 from 3 years ago, wore them today, check IG!

Also, I have been warming up to black shell although I don't own any.. But the Naval boot doesn't do it for me..

I personally don't love the Greenwich boot just because I think you lose the wing tip and medallion styling with the chamois.Not everyone thinks that, obviously, and they're still a really great boot but not for me.

I wish someone (other than LS, which doesn't have my size) did a plain toe reverse chamois boot that wasn't on crepe... or I wish the ones I'm selling in my sig were half a size smaller (thanks, @TO Tie Guy!)

You need a 13 in the Pitt?? or should that say half size smaller?
