Is the bubble toe last something only available in Japan? What is it exactly?  Isn’t it really a Boss toe?
The bubble or bump toe, is the 9109 shoe last. You can have almost any boot built on it. I have a Boss on that last, I also have a Warren (Packer upper on the 9109) If you want it put it in the special instructions on a order, or message @Chris at Wesco

 Edit: the 8106 (Warren) pictured above is built on the 9109 last

Dumbass question: if I do a custom order through you, can you ask Wesco to find and use a lighter tan like this, assuming some batches are darker?

I’ve been researching the brown oil tan for a while and couldn’t get a bed on the actual colour. This may explain why.
Could some of the problem be that they switched which base color they're using as their brown oil tan? I remember it being said they they switched to a chestnut oil tan over what they'd been using a year or so prior.

The 9109 is my favorite due to it being a little narrower compared to my Jobmasters. That and I like the overall shape of the bump toe a lot better.

That's definitely 9109 last. First Jobmaster I've seen built on it and I dig the look

No problem. I had similar thoughts when mine turned out such, since neither my Warrens or Jobmasters did. One of those had been coated with oil before they saw snow, and the other aren't really great for winter though. I'd always assumed it was actually salt exposure

My Boss are exactly the same where the dye and snow is concerned.

The standard Vibram #100 isn't oil resistant (non-slip). You have to go with the #100F (same sole design, different chemical composition), it comes with an upcharge from Wesco. The Raptor soles are non-slip.
Yep, as someone who works on oil covered floors, you want the 100F. Even those need the claws roughed up a bit for maximum traction in heavy oil

Could it be that it's generally the most efficient way to lay out a shirt pattern in terms of fabric use?

(have a shit load here.....)
I'm all ears, and not very picky in this case. The more varied the better actually. I still have about a leg and a half of the hickory stripe, but will take whatever you'd part with. Just let me know what you'd need/want to make something happen.

Anybody have any denim/fabric scraps or remnants they might be willing to part with? My 666N are about ready for another round of repairs and I'm hoping to be able to change up some of what they're being patched with.
