    Every once in a while I see something in this forum that instantly sends me on the hunt. This post did it today. These are a perfect winter boot. Checks all the boxes for me. Yours look incredible. Never heard of circle 7 but just got on the list for the restock. Thanks for sharing.

    I did the same. I think a cap toe works better than the wing tip pattern other shops have done with this leather. Makes a great rain boot!

    Agreed. As an FYI, you might want to check with Alden of Carmel. Adam has a similar boot on order with all brass eyelets. Sounds pretty close and with Adam, you simply can't beat the service.

    That is a really nice pair of boots.

    I signed up for circle7's newsletter.

    If I didn't have a pair of Vibergs Brown Waxed Flesh boots on commando those Reverse Chamois woulda been kopped.

    Thanks for kind words guys. I actually picked these up reluctantly because I couldn't find reverse chamois wingtips in my size with a commando sole and flat welt (requirements for my boots). If anyone has a 9D pair of wingtips boots that they want to trade for these, be happy to talk. I love these but just have SOOOOO MANY cap toe boots, and just bought another shell pair from Meermin MTO...just cant seem to stop.

    since we're talking reverse chamois - I've decided that for my casual boots I really prefer the TB last. So I have a few things on the Barrie I'll probably be putting on B&S, one being B&M's reverse tobacco chamois WT Boot (10D). If you're interested, reach out...

    I have my first pair of Alden boots on the way on the TB. And I do have a pair of #8 shell medallion bluchers(Alt Wein) on Barrie.

    Out of curiosity, why isn't a Barrie last good with you for a boot.

    As an owner of many pairs of Viberg boots on the 110 last I think I have an idea but I'd like to hear.

    Thanks!

    The Barrie actually works fine for me. I have boots and shoes on the barrie and for the most part I'm very happy with them. Once in a while I'll get a pair where the right foot is a little tight across the vamp, but its usually not an issue.

    I've just realized that on the weekends I reach for Indys and other casual boots on the Trubalance, so why keep a pair that isn't getting much love?

    I was at a store in Athens that carries Alden chatting to the owner ,who told me about a shell briefcase given to him from Alden 20 yrs ago.
    And of course I asked him to bring it for a photo to be posted on the forum.
    Really is extremely heavy. Don't think they make them anymore.
