Thanks epc2, they are very similar but subtlety different. The J Crew has stitching along the ankle, double lines in the perf broguing as opposed to one line on the Naval boot, and a 270 welt versus a 360 welt. Also, even though they're the same size and on the same barrie last their fit is completely different. Where the J Crew boot feels slightly narrower in width, the Leffot boot is really full and roomy.

Stopped by Citishoes today. For those looking for a color 8 Indy on commando soles, they have them. The difference between this version and the Shoe Mart's version is that they have a close heel at Citishoes.

Ok, since nobody bought them, I am still haunted by this choice:

 

(1) Pay around $850 for the Frans Boone Plaza Boot (with nearly instant gratification) and either give up my $150 deposit on the Leffot Tankers or else buy them and sell them off when they finally come in 2014.

or

 

(2) Wait until 2014 and pay the remaining $600 for the Leffot Tankers, avoiding the issue above, saving money, and having plenty of time to responsibly budget for them.

Problems, problems, problems.  :puzzled:

 

Thoughts?  Thanks.

Are those LS Socks?  If so, pretty badass!

Those are LS luggage straps.
They do have brown/orange try-on socks but no writing on them.

Which last do you prefer? I think that would make my decision for me.

Thanks budapezt, the boots make the picture. I can't begin to describe to you how incredibly comfortable these boots really are.

Thank you very much Don L. It's getting cool enough where I can break out the wool-cashmere blends.

Looking good! I wonder if the Leffot arrival signals more of Leffot's spring pre-orders are on the near horizon.....I'm anxiously waiting for the tobacco chamois lwb for sloppy fall and winter weather....

This Barrie last is too large volume wise. I have 91/2 D feet but they are thin. I can't go down width wise .. Neuromas .. Wondering if the plaza is my answer?

If your looking for Whiskey LWB 9D meticulously cared for, check my sig. Hate to eat the price difference but must move forward. Priced to move or Best Offer. Wanted to offer my fellow SFer's before EBay.

Stunning......and if I may, one of the things I like most about this site is the way many members really take chances with their socks/slacks combo and make them work. I doubt that I would have ever considered this combination but you make it work nicely.
