Leffot Naval Boot also has all eyelets. It's also missing the panel stitching across the side of the boot.

Disagree on the 270 vs 360 welt in this case. Bringing attention to the antique edge all around the boot is a better style choice I feel. Not that this boot would look bad with a 270 degree welt.

Also, I think antique on color 8 brings the whole color palette closer to a cigar/Ravello, making it more versatile than a color 8 with black edge (for me).

Hate to bring up a sizing question, but...

I've only ever found 7.5D Barrie boots in stores and have tried them on. They fit better than Barrie LWB and don't pinch my foot, but I'm worried about foot swell after all day walking, so I'm wondering if I should get a wider size 7.5E and use a thin insert if I feel it's too loose.

Thoughts? How snugly do you guys wear your boots?

I was going to offer my 8.5 naval boots to some broken hearted soul!

How are leg openings measured? Is 17 inches the circumference?

I might need to add that exact phrase to my signature line.

Yes,  Almost a foot and a half in diameter or radius would be like JNCO jeans from the 90s

 

Edit: or bigger

Thanks, that makes sense. Makes me want to go home and measure mine. I think a lot of my pants are 11 inches or less, and I am on the taller side. I wonder if my proportions look weird.

I'm not sure you could fit your foot thru that! That would only 5.5in. when measured from seam to seam.

Hmm you're right. That makes no sense. Do people measure them differently? Looking at a pair 36 size of epaulet rivet pants, it says the leg opening is 8.25". That must be the diameter and not the circumference? I'm confused...

That is the measurement from seam to seam (layed out flat). Double it for the leg opening.

8.25 would be a 16.5 leg opening.

Ah, that makes a lot more sense now. So if pants were labeled as 11 inch leg opening, you might need to be careful to determine if it is 11 inch circumference or if that is seam to seam and it is actually 22 inches (which would be quite large?).

 

I'm going to measure the openings of my favorite jeans and of my epaulet walts now and figure out what is the size I personally like.

Has anyone been able to do a Leffot preorder for a larger size? I seem to recall asking them to add larger sizes (13 US) to their preorder drop down and they wouldn't do it. Do they have a limited range of sizes they can do a preorder in?

Side-by-side comparison of Alden 974 (11D Tremont-right foot) and BB Cordovan Wingtip (11.5D M-75/Plaza-left foot). Interesting IMO.

The combination of last, broguing, and single vs. double leather sole really makes a big difference in appearance. For my purposes, as previously stated, the 974 offers more versatility with denim or odd trousers vice the sleeker BB.
