    I failed in getting a 12D last time the leffot order ran despite just about every size still being available.

    If 12D fills up once more, I'm just going to buy something like 10D to screw over someone else!

    My crepe Aldens got rock hard after a few years without use. The Reltex soles that Rancourt uses are much better in my experience.

    In case you miss out on the Greenwich, it seems like Yenni at Brick + Mortar Seattle will be doing the same boot:

    41. Reverse Tobacco Chamois Wing Tip Boot, Barrie last, Commando sole.

    Maybe I should get one more pair of Leffot Tankers and frame it @tifosi ;)



    @tricky here's your chance buddy to grab those Tankers!


    I might kop Greenwich reverse chamois boots (again lol).

    Maybe - I want the all eyelet version. Any idea if Yenni's is all eyelet?

    I really wish the greenwich was spaced out a little further in the year cause I want that boot too.. can't do both so close together though ugh.. Guess if I can't snag a pair of tankers, I'll shoot for that instead..

    The Context tanker was with speed hooks. I just checked in with them today actually and we hit 12 and the order was submitted to Alden on 5/1. Should have them in time for Thanksgiving, hopefully.

    I ordered the Epaulet Ironside since it is all eyelet and will sell my black Indy's as I am not a fan of speedhooks.

    How are the Leffot Tankers sized on Barrie vs Jcrew captoes on Barrie? I mean are they equally snug?
