I just got my TB pair, thought I'd post pics of them with my WC 88s:
I am by no means an expert but what jumps out at me is the TB lacking in leather quality, tongue doesn't seem as nice as 88s and thicker EP on TB as discussed. Cut seems a bit different as well, overall feeling 88s much better. I think TB only for die hard 3 lovers, causal fans should pass.
Besides the cw itself the 88s look no better to me here. I'm assuming the OGs TBs did not have a tumbled leather toungue so that would explain that difference. Honestly the 16' TBs just look better than those 88s in these particular pics. Just my opinion and observation though.
