    Hey peeps, not that I need another boot, but want a black engineer.

    Looking at wesco 7400 makeup with a soft boss toe instead of mp toe.
    White thread around the sole, black elsewhere, copper buckle
    My question is whether to get standard black tie domain (smooth, shiny, soft, gray underneath) or teacore (little rougher, stiff, brown underneath)

    I believe if I choose teacore it will limit the last and sole I can choose?

    Basically looking for opinions on the look, feel, comfort, and aged look of wesco domain v teacore

    Thx!!!!

    Should be no difference in what leather you choose vs sole selection.

    I just ordered some custom Wesco Jobmasters and did not notice a tea core type leather available. Just black tie domain and their regular oiled black and black rough out.

    I recently ordered a pair of the 7400 model as surplus stock from Wesco in the black domain leather and I have to say they feel positively indestructible. Really impressed by the quality and comfort, so much so that I am constantly scanning their website even though I am sure these boots will see me out. They feel like a proper, functional work boot.

    Report back on fit please. I was told to go to an E width on the 7400 so I am curious.

    I ordered my Jobmasters in burgundy domain. Its going to be a long 14 week wait.

    My 7400 are an E width. They fit width wise. I am typically a D.

    I have E in other wescos and they seem to be like a normal d. I will say that every wesco I have it TTS 11, unlike alden barrie or rw heritage which I do a 10.5

    Thanks and good to know.

    I have a test fit pair of the Jobmasters coming next week in an 8.5 D before Baker orders my burgundy pair. I am usually a 9D in everything except Red Wing which I am usually an 8 - 8.5 depending on style.

    I was told by Baker Shoe to drop down a 1/2 size in the Wesco from my usual sneaker size. They said a regular D width should be fine but in the 7400 to move to an E due to the narrow motorcycle patrol last used. Good thing I decided to order a test pair of their shelf stock Jobmaster to try first.

    So I had (and sold off) a beautiful pair of 7400 engieers with the MP toe. There we 12D and too tight. I'm typically 11.5 - 12 D so thought there would be no issue. It was the "top" of the toe area making contact with my toes that really caused the issue. I would pland ot size up a bit and as others have said, consider an E width if you are normally a D width. GL, they are awesome boots if they fit you.
