    Very nice, DV. On commando too? Where from? And the trousers might be even sweeter.

    Super under-rated. I have the Kirkwood Color 8 Cap Toe boots on Commando from Unionmade 2014. They ran them the last time they also ran the Halleck with dark edges on commando.

    It's a barrie lasted boot, which I know some/most prefer the Grant version (4060 or 4060HC), but the Grant last doesn't work well for those with a narrow heel and low-instep... atleast in a non-custom size. These have speed hooks and commando so they're a great boot for everyday use. I'm a huge fan!

    Size 12D Grant lasted color 8 wingtip boots with antique flat welt on commando are on their way back to TSM. Unfortunately the grant last is not a good fit. It's a bit narrow in the toe box but sloppy in the ankle, which is exactly the opposite of what I need with my duck feet.

    These were on the irregular list, so they should be available in a week or so. Here are the defects:

    Wow, those look pretty messed up. I guess it makes sense...you hear folks talk about getting seconds with such minor defects that there not noticeable at all. There had to be the opposite of that....

    Thanks Gabru, Ravello will have to pop up again someday soon!


    Those are just soo nice Don! Great slacks with them as well!


    Nice looking WT Boots Henry! Glad that you got to make the rounds. You hit up some mighty nice stores! :)


    Wow, glad that my NYC post was useful! Glad to help! Citi and Madison aren't that far apart. :)


    [​IMG] Thanks!


    Those Vintage Indys are just perfect brother. Looking great!


    You be looking good rocking them tankers JD!






    Thanks guys!!! The pants were their maiden voyage, a recent MTO from Epaulet. I was soo excited to wear them, that I thought that they deserved the pairing of the WT Boots. :) Your pair will be along soon Steve! I think Ravello can't be that much further out!


    DV, them Ravellos are looking mighty nice bro! Those Cedar Lavender checks are just rad also!


    Those look great Chris. Really like the whole combo in picture number 3, but I really like purple and blue in general for some reason.

    I am pretty stoked to have these boots in my collection. They came out superbly.

    Hi everyone. New to the forum. Long time wearer of Alden LWB's for corporate wear. Recently got into boots. Hooked! Does anyone apply taps/plates on heel/toe for protection? Thanks!

    Thank you ironclad. They're from leffot. Commando is my favorite sole. The epaulet pants are a pretty sweet.
    Thanks dubs. One of my favorite shoes.
    Great boots dubs. i want a pair. @ptaylor23 welcome to the show. Alden lwbs were my gateway drug as well. Yes, some people add taps. our good friend Sazon comes to mind.
