Thanks Guys!!! I was pretty skeptical about them with the exposed black eyelets... But I am super glad that I picked them up now! They are super cool and look sharp in person. :-)

 

Hopefully BB will restock them!

Worn with a Charcoal Pinstripe Suit, white dress shirt, and red tie. I thought the socks were cool at bringing it all together! :-)

How do you straight lace w/ 5 holes like that?

I follow the first method listed on Balmorals as the small gap nicely hides the stitching in the back, and these are much easier to tie, in my opinion.

Visited Lakota House in Tokyo searching for shell boots on the Modified last. Was really hoping for ravello and cigar but no luck. The guy told me that the rare shell colors are now just that, extremely rare. All they had were #8 and black (both PT boots). At 110,000 Yen (about $1100), I couldn't bite. But they had some boots on the Military last, which I've never tried. Given my obsession with Viberg right now, the Military last was very appealing to me. The toe box is rounder than the Modified last but has less interior room. It has less of the extreme arch of the Modified but the heel is narrower, which I really liked.

This last has more of a work boot look to it. I spent way more for these than I should have, but they will be my souvenir from Tokyo. My first boots with a crepe sole, which don't get much love here, but thought I'd try, as they were just so comfortable.

Whiskey with olive drab linen today.

This particular batch has some green undertones.

It must have been aged in American oak barrels. HAHA

I think whiskey lends itself better to shortwings than longwings. Looking sharp B!
