    Congrats on these gorgeous new boots, my friend. I appreciated your photo set of your Leffot color 8 tankers from a while ago! [​IMG]
    Keep'em coming!

    Is that the black naval from leffot? It looks great! I don't have any black shell yet and I think this will be my first if they do another run this year.

    This is in fact the Leffot boot from August of 2013. (I had to look up my account on Leffot to confirm.)
    This batch always shines up so well.

    Just ordered my first pair of seconds from TSM. Chromexcel PTB. How is the quality on seconds generally?

    It is hit or miss. I just received a pair of plain toe tobacco chamois boots that were not marked as 2nds and do not have any apparent flaws. CXL could be iffy though because of the nature of the leather which is very prone to wrinking.

    Interesting. I have a very wide foot (sized F and G in many English brands, EEE in Modified last,etc), but I can wear E width in Trubalance pretty comfortably.

    Yeah interesting is a word that can be used to
    Describe my situation haha. I have shell Indys and cxl Indys all On TB and all 9.5 EEE. I need pretty much all The room. I also have a Barrie 9.5 EEE that is more snug but Fits well. I just have a very wide foot. But my foot is wide a little further back towards the heel
    Than where traditional width is measured. This is my struggle. High class problems.

    Thanks to all the Alden brothers for the recommendations on my Indy sales. All god advice. I took them all out last night to make some final decisions and it was a hard decision.
    Still mulling it over.

    No one caught that my “Color 4 Indy with Unicorn eyelets” was a joke. If only !

    The real question is what size are they? I can't answer without knowing if I'd be able to buy the ones you don't want.
