    Aram and I spoke about eyelet changeouts the other night when dropping some stuff off. It was either $45 or $85 for 20 eyelets (brass in particular). I'll ask again when I pick my stuff back up next week.

    I love the look, but hate the feel of a chukka. They are always too loose for my liking.

    I think my high instep and wide foot contribute. In order to get into the boot, it has to be a certain size, then there are only 3 eyelets to tighten them back up. I have a weird foot.

    I don't own any chukkas for the same reason. I also love the look of chukkas and might try a chukka with at least three eyelets or more. But then that changes the look as well.

    I am considering this boot from Leffot. Would like your thoughts... Would this be a good choice as a second boot along with the JCrew PCT?

    The Alden Tanker, also known as the NST boot, is an incredibly versatile and durable shoe. With commando soles and handsewn split toe, it is both aesthetically pleasing and highly practical. The oiled chamois leather needs no maintenance and will keep you dry through the wettest months. Throw in the commando soles and you have the ideal winter boot.

    Aw

    Awesome shoe, I was just eying this model up last night as I feel I need an additional "suit shoe". How do you find the Hampton sizing compared to Barrie?

    Henry, your Ravello WT Boots are looking great. I assume that they are from the 2015 run as well...

    Thanks Mike. I'll take a look at the numbers when I get home, but given when I got them and how I got them, I believe they are the 2014 run that hit TSM this time last year.
