    I think smooth tobacco tanker on commando is already done by another retailer (though I know you can just have them fiddle with the welt/eyelets to make it unique). No one is doing the reverse TC on commando, which I find incredible... lots of people have been waiting for that one to come around.

    Anyone know the actual width difference when moving from a D to a C width.
    I have a line on some C width LWB but no place to try them on for reference.

    I've been wanting a barrie brown CXL tanker with reverse storm welt on commando, but it looks like LeatherSoul isn't going to run that for a while. Yenni has it with a flat welt and on TrueBalance, but not in an 11.5 D (and I really kinda want storm/barrie, though I wonder how the 11D she has would feel...)

    Thanks!

    My shell tassels are both 11.5d and the CXL are 11d...sometimes they feel a little snug but I think and 11.5 might be sloppy......with a little time these might be perfect though.

    I think it honestly depends on the exact shoe.....I have a pair of 11.5 snuff suede tassels that are starting to feel a little loose, but my blue suede tassels in the same size are almost snug.

    They don't have much wear but I really like the look of them when I dig them out of the back of the closet.....the kicker is that I picked them up on ebay for $85! [​IMG]
