    ^That black waxflesh looks pretty darn good to me... And you rarely see black, whereas brown waxflesh is much more common. So I'd probably go for that.

    Folks here also pointed out that the black waxed flesh wears down to show brown underneath. So that could either make
    it less desireable or the best of both worlds.

    Then again, the more I look at the brown waxflesh on FrankCowperwood's boots above, the more I like it. So yeah, a hard decision..

    I went TTS and they fit spot on. No heel slip and nice and snug around my instep with regular thickness socks. Really glad I didn't size down.

    Smokin' boots! When you say TTS are you referring to Brannock/dress shoe size?

    Sharp! The waxed flesh is really growing on me

    What is the denim?

    Yeah, the waxed flesh is great. I can't wait to see how it breaks in. The denim was a new pair of Gustin Loomstates. Haven't had much chance to wear them, so they're pretty much fresh out of their first soak.
