    Any thoughts on getting a more accessible shell wingtip boot order going?

    I'd be willing to do: Brown or #8 shell, plaza last, short wing, mini lug sole (similar to LeathersSoul's plaza wingtip boot)

    Hmmm. Let me talk to Yenni and see if she is going to take that model with her to Brick + Mortar.

    I have a run of Color 8 and Black Semi-Brogue Boots going on the Plaza. I am using that to fill this spot.

    Should look like this, but a boot.

    What's the different between the LS WT boot and the JG WT boot? Blind eyelets vs Match eyelets?

    I think Yenni decided to make a Color 8 WT boot antique/commando on plaza ?

    I thought you were interested in a Tanker boot. I am not really into the blucher, thanks anyway.

    Actually, you will want to talk to Yenni @ Brick and Mortar. She has plans to do this in Color #8 with a Tan Antique Edge.

    A shell Longwing in any color besides black, on any last besides the Barrie or TB.

    Ouch. I was just complaining about how far the welt sticks out from the shoe in another thread and this pic demonstrates it so clearly. Here's how they used to be:

    Ha, thats not sticking out at all! The LeatherSoul Balmoral that you quoted was designed specifically with an Extra Wide Welt Line and was intended to have a more formal styling. Your (unlined?) LHS clearly does not have an extra long welt like the LS Semi-Brogue does...
