Only 30 (ish) points between the two of them. Some good racing.
I saw the Australia race where he missed the mandatory pit stop window...oops!

I have wanted a pair and drooled over uncle macs' and sevenfoldtieguy's forever.


Congrats MrDV. You wear them well! The shell on this run of NSTs looks fantastic. The depth is mind blowing.

YES! That was a serious turning point for sure. Maybe a little to do with being a rookie, maybe a little ego...

I have the BB version with an antique welt but mine were converted as well.

tia!

I believe I responded to you previous, but nobody to my knowledge is currently stocking this. Leffot was set to release a pre-order and that same week they had a huge response to their PTB and LWB pre-order...So they decided to place the LHS on hold and apply their shell allotment to more of those two. I was super bummed as I have been waiting for an #8LHS with antique for quite some time. Your other option is to buy used and send to Nick at B Nelson for a re-crafting. IMO these are the best casual 986's I have ever seen

Awesome shoes!

 

If you don't mind me asking, is that the true length or your pant or are they hiked up for the picture?

I'm bent over in that pic with my phone almost at the floor. Most of my pants have a slight break.

I have a pair of chomexcel lwb in 8.5 on a barrie last as well as a pair of calf shortwings in 8.5 on a barrie last and the shortwings fit better. Do the cuts differ sometimes dependent on the type of leather used? The LWB feel like they're about a half a size too large or maybe just a slightly wider cut? It's made me a little reluctant to purchase another pair without trying them on.

This is what I plan on having B Nelson do to a pair of PTB.

much appreciated!
