I love the extra eyelets
Simpson last but they do look look a little like rain.
same here. not a fan of 2/3 eyelets when i can have 5 instead. just looks better imo not to mention a little more support
Yes, same for me. I think those are great while most 2-3 eyelet chukkas do little or nothing for me.

ww2 jumper boot wow. did you preorder?
No, just did an MTO of the same design. Paid a fortune.
As you seem to already know, Epaulet did a GMTO. They let a few people back out due to production delays. One of them happened to be my size. I went down there to buy it, but they sold it to someone else a day earlier. Would have just bought it online, but their website says NOT RETURNS and I wasn't aware at that time of their special exemption for SF members.
TBH, I get very cold welcomes from the folks at Epaulet, so it helps ease the pain of missing the initial opportunity and having to pay a different retailer significantly more to get it.

Navy shell MTO boots.
Excellent service from Steve.
Wow so awesome
FUK I want those.
@Bakes11771 is that the loden suede? How do you like the color?
The shell tanker and shell jumper boots above are both freaking awesome.
I like it a lot. When I first saw them, I thought it wasn't for me.
I actually had the guys at the Armoury have a pair of grey string loafers sent over from the the HK store, but when I got them, they were really more blue than grey. Practically speaking, you would have to wear them as blue shoes. I brought em back and exchanged them for the loden, and I'm happy that I did.
I think there may be some variation with the loden. I think mine is on the lighter and greener side. I think sometimes it can turn out to be darker and more grey.
Short answer, I really like the color, especially for this kind of shoe. Plan to wear them with navy trousers, but they would go great khakis as well. Got a matching (not an exact match) belt from Steve at Gentleman's footwear.
Thanks roger. You have a lot of enviable Carmina's as well.
Did the jury ever reach a verdict on whether or not neutral wax prevents water welts on Carmina shell?
Might have missed it but where are these from?
