    Did you go thru drifter? Your revelation that they had them (and in my size) thru me into a 3 day crisis of conscience. Fortunately, after 10 or so emails with Wesco it appears that they may not be the best for me fit wise. They are gorgeous looking boots but I’m really not in the market. Would you mind posting some fit details.

    I think those 100th anniversary boots would look better with a double thick midsole and one less heel stack.

    They are still bloody amazing as is. Cool boots Regius.

    In short, this pair fits like Red Wings engineers. It’s D, although I need E in their current boss, for these I can do D. Hugs my instep just at the right spot and lots of toe room. Heel is high to get used to though.

    I am really liking this Job Master and the leather combo. The colours appear to be redwood leather and burlap leather.

    The single midsole with high heel look is more period accurate, I posted a Lee engineer somewhere, it looks just like the 100th anniversary. But, plenty of double sole versions exist back in the days.

    I love it.

    I was going to do a pair in Whites Boots but I am not a fan of Horween CXL so Wesco it is with their Burgundy domain. I prefer a non-pull up type of leather.

    I have a selection of boots of which two pairs are Wescos. Ever since I was a kid wearing Dr Martens and Kickers and in my twenties serving seven years in the RAF wearing aircrew flying boots I've always preferred boots over shoes.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Eventually I might order me some Wesco engineers. Can they be had without the stitched-on label? I was a bit disappointed when I bought my TCX boots and discovered the embossed logo on the front up towards the top, but the labels I've seen sewn on recent Wescos are much more obvious.

    Pretty sure those labels are only on the anniversary models. My 7400’s don’t have.
