This past week @jpm1 and I were bouncing around ideas for a brand new balmoral makeup since you all know I have an affinity for balmorals! :bigstar: Any input from the community would be great with regards to sole choice (single vs. double). Currently leaning heavily towards a double oak sole to match the gravitas the upper design brings to the table. It's a really unique and nice take on a wingtip.

The details are currently as follows with photos:
Color 8 upper
Hampton last, 270 welt
Double oak leather sole
Antique edge

I hear ya S2 and you can't go wrong either way. However, my vote would be single leather. One, just don't see it enough and two, I think the antique pop's a little much on non-commando/double leather for my taste. FWIW, go single-leather with the spec's you have above (I love Hampton on shoes) and I commit to the pre-order (so much for slowing my roll).
