    Like smoking a 8 iron in for the kill. You'll find those grails.

    Those boots on the bottom are awesome... but the real craziness here is that you seem floating in the air above ground.

    Stellar pairing Don! I shouldn't have passed on these when Ed called me...damn damn damn [​IMG] On another note, I just received an email from Yenni at Brick + Mortar that the reverse chamois wingtip boots have arrived. Received tracking for my pair (and a second pair for one of my favorite Canadians) @TO Tie Guy @chrisefi @tifosi

    Despite all eyelets and the Alden steel shank, my 4060 are still one of my go-to airport choices. I noticed today that they could stand for some TLC this weekend though.

    I love the idea of a reverse tobacco chamois Tanker, but the WinnPerry boot is Truebalance (I'd really rather have Barrie) and Double Waterlock (I'd really prefer Commando).

    Any idea who makes an NST in either of these makeups:

    reverse tobacco chamois or brown CXL
    Barrie Last
    Commando sole
    reverse storm welt preferred.

    I've talked to LeatherSoul, and they don't have current plans to re-run their CXL edtion of this boot. Yenni's is flat welt (which is OK) and TrueBalance (which I find a little wide for this boot).

    Any thoughts/help appreciated!

    That's as close as I can get to your request. Only thing it's missing is the Commando sole, but you can fix that later on down the road when it's time for a re-sole.
