    To Zippy or anyone else with whiskey PTB's...can you fellas post up a picture? I'm usually not a fan of plain toe's, but I want to see how they look. It's either this or whiskey LWB's. I fear the LWB's will be too close in color to my dark tan LWB's from J. Crew, this is the only reason I didn't buy the whiskey LWB's instantly.

    Still haven't worn them. I don't have the J Crew LWBs but I do have some tan calf LWBs in addition to whiskey LWBs. I find they look different enough to me. Sure, it's a subtle distinction but I'm sure you can convince yourself you need both if you try.

    Wow, they look great in those pictures! I saw the black PTB's on Epaulet's site and they didn't do much for me, but the whiskey's look a lot better there.

    Zippy, I will have to wait until I get home to see your stuff. The work computer is not showing it.

    I asked because a place has both on order. And since I can't find anyone else who has or plan to have whiskey's soon...I will just hop on this deal. ETA is about 9 months.

    And yes, Zippy, it didn't take too long for me to justify myself to get both..haha.

    Got home already and saw Zippy's picture. Man, Shoemart has sz 8.5, but no more 8. [​IMG] It's going to be a long while before my pair gets in.

    I went TTS on the Grant and it fits perfect. I have boots in Barrie and Trubalance also. 10D in Barrie and 10.5D in Grant feels to me like nearly the exact same fit. I really like the Grant last. It's like a slightly more refined Barrie shape.

    lampchop: What size do you wear for your Trubalances?
