^ Next level stuff. Well done.
Your Grant Lasted Wingtip Boots are looking superb. Interesting boot laces on them too. Looks cool.
It seems that you miss the AE MTO days there... Those makeups both look terrific. Your cobbler did a great job, particularly on the edges. Enjoy your new Bluchers.
I was pretty sure I was going to get the Alden Madison tanker (I previously owned the Context black tanker and sold it), but AoC's black Indy looks so good in the photos... For a casual commando boot, I think I prefer Trubalance
Pics when you have them
Good to hear from you Dubsy! Congrats on your promotion to Mayor and the great intro post. I am indeed an Alden man now... trying to relive the glory days of the MTO program -- AE is dead to me now
I would say most definitely. I have both lasts and the Barrie is nice and snug where as the Modified in the same size has ample room in the toe box. I've actually been able to size down a 1/2 on some Modified boots from my Barrie size. But since you're an E in Barrie, I wouldn't do that. Good luck.
Very nice giving them the ole' @[email protected]
I have the boots in my hands now, but its going to be a few weeks until I have time to photograph them due to rain and whatnot.
Yeah, the death of the MTO program was essentially my last straw for me, as I no longer have a need for any of the stock makeups at this point in time.
Hello gents, I've been away for a while, and just discovered the new thread. Looking good everyone!
My 2016 project has been breaking in these amazing Epaulet natural Indys.
I've recently fallen back in love with Tankers so I'd pick up some tankers if I were you.
Black wingtips and black tanker boots are an awesome combo. Then again you can't go wrong with Black Shell Indys...
Thanks Mike. Laces are extras that came with my AF53's.
The 2160 color lends itself to brass eyelets. Well done.
Wow AE killed the mto program? Total customization was really the main selling point. It was awesome to see the stuff comes would come up with given Ae's diverse options of materials and lasts.
Yeah, it's been dead for a while now. Peppercorn, Dubsy, Watchidiot, and I got in while the going was good and had some killer makeups done. It was the golden age.
