    Given the season, I went with the Leffot snuff suede unlined LHS and the cigar chukkas - both will get year round wear whereas the high boots I was looking at are more fall/winter/spring...

    I will wait to add another color 8 to the collection. Probably done until September at least.

    Pics coming soon

    I always wear like that

    BTW, I am wondering if #8 LHS works with shorts or not.

    You mean the visible stitches?
    I can almost see a hint of where the stitches are on mine in a couple places if I look very closely in strong light.
    In other words, not really visible on my pair.

    yes, the visible stitching.
    its quite visible on the pair they sent me which I worry means its not very secure.

    I think the only downside is cosmetic.

    its secure, just not pleasant. Maybe they could be tightened during a recraft. ideally though, those holes should be covered to ensure better water resistance, or so I was told.
