It's black, not tea core.

As Chris said, this is not tea core. The black domain leather has been a Wesco staple for a number of years. It is a hefty waxed dress leather that takes a shine easily and develops beautifully. Not unlike CXL but harder wearing.

just to clarify, tea core means that the leather has brown color under the black color?
which I assume used to show some contrast patina?

Indeed. It is leather that is dyed black but in such a way that the dye does not penetrate the leather and is only on the surface.

just received the 10E  ::)

based on first inspection I would say 10D is my best size. but never the less I will try this one.
with some thicker insoles and thicker socks. just with thick insoles i feel they are still slightly bulky but at least they are not hurt and not gathering socks badly.

will check later with thick socks at home...

looks like they feel ok with thick socks...  8)

does they require any breaking in ? I don't feel any resistance right now, just wondering would they be even more comfortable?

Beautiful boots! The act of wearing them is what breaks them in (unless you want to do weird things with them instead). So they will get softer with wear for sure.

after few weeks I have finally figured out a right combination of footbeds and socks. 8)
i have tried many footbeds with different thickness and the same number of different socks, looks like now I have a proper fit. Very comfortable.  :D
