Very nice! I just got my Leffot 8 tankers yesterday, but I'm waiting for my pair of B+M 8 wingtip boots to come THEN decide which to keep
I'm out of town this weekend so Yenni is having them delivered Monday for me, which is great! I am currently leaning towards keeping the B+M wingtip boots, but if anyone wants to call dibs on the Leffot 8 tankers (size 8D) or B+M 8 wingtips (Grant last, size 8.5D) message me & I'll confirm my decision next week
Nothing against the Leffot model at all as it was one of the first makeups which caught my eye and started me with Alden's. That and the Epaulet 8 alt Wien. But.....there is to me something really special about Yenni's wing tip on grant make up! Good luck with your decision.
They kind of remind me of burnt toast. Sorry, I'm only making light of it (no PUN intended) because I have the same pair (of pairs).
I've worn my Leffot Naval boots well over 30 times since receiving them in Sep '15. I wore them even if they didn't fit or match. Worn to hikes, office, business trips, bars, and probably worst, on NYC sidewalk/subway. The boots held up fantastic and they look new! This is great if you liked how they looked from factory. There is no difference in lightness/darkness when compared to brand new Tankers. Some of the shine/luster did come off.
Also, I don't expect this batch of color 8 to wear and look like the traditional eggplant/maroon color 8 (new or patina'd). It's a totally different color IMO.
This is from own my personal experience with the new batch of color 8.
