    His online contact form doesn't always work. I'll send you a PM with his email. As for sizing I think 90% of people go with their true brannock sizing. That's what I did and my boots should be here in a week or so. If you don't know your brannock size go get it checked out.

    Commence non-buyers remorse for not being on this GMTO. I was in the middle of a few other acquisitions at the time, and didn't think I "needed" these. Boy was I wrong! Great looking boot. Hopefully Vince stocks that leather so I can jump on.

    Try rubbing with your finger...they are pattern marks and should come off fairly easy...even a good brushing may do it

    Just looks like normal stacked leather. The patterning will fade and the leather color darken as you wear them. If you want a more even appearance and don't mind accelerating the darkening you could use a bit of boot oil or neutral shoe cream.

    I'm considering getting a pair of the Smooth Waxy Mohawk in Snuff. However I'm trying to decide whether I should request a gusseted tongue or not. Anyone have any thoughts on this. The one thing I don't want to end up with is the tongue that travels like the one on my Indys.

    I have a non gusset tongue and it is fine...that being said I would have preferred it and vince from what I gather is now doing gusset standard.

    I have a roughout tongue with leather laces so that may be holding it also

    I noticed one of the boots on their website had it in the description and at least one had mentioned they would have preferred it. I'm just looking for input at this point. I do wish I could find someone who had purchased this leather to get a better idea as to what I might be getting as well.

    No tongue travel on my non-gusseted pair. And I do have that problem with other boots. Believe the gusset is standard. Most people were ordering it that way so Vince decided to go with it as the default.

    Thanks Frank, and I did email Vince to see what he had to say with regards to a gusseted tongue on these boots.


    I really like how these boots look, I do wish I could find someone who already has these specific boots however. I'd like to get their thoughts on the waxy Mohawk leather.

    So after a weekend I am still waiting for a reply from Truman regarding my sizing. Does it normally take this long to get a reply from them? I am very keen to get a couple of pairs for me and my wife, but I am not getting anywhere with my emails. I have tried the 'contact us' function on their website, and have sent a couple of emails directly to their email address.

    I'm sure they'll say it's because they're busy crafting boots. Even more frustrating is being in Week #8 C'mon Man
