I picked up a pair of these a couple of months ago and they are great. Purchased a pair of Common Projects before but didn't like them nearly as much as I hoped. These look just as good as CPs and the quality and leather both seem on par (and a couple hundred less). They come with great packaging and made me a fan.
I originally got a fake because I wanted the look, but then sold it to a friend and was able to get a hook-up on a new authentic one through a friend who was an architect. The difference is literally night and day. I couldn't be happier and know that i'll have this piece of furniture for a long long time, and its going to get old with me, and hopefully retain its value along the way. Even if it didn't, I wouldn't really care, I've had it for about a year now and its...
Are you planning on offering custom patina on other shoes, say the cap toes?
Whoa, please tell me you are making those shoes.
I just got my benchgrade captoes resoled. They have a beveled waist and my cobbler was able to keep that intact no problem. They did a great job and look just as good as they did straight from KW.
Some of my favorite KW gear (brown captoes not included bc they are currently being resoled)
Kent - I have a pair of the dark brown benchgrade captoes that I love and I wear the hell out them. I've had them about a year and one shoe is starting to get a little hole in the sole/instep. Any recommendations for specific type of resoling? I definitely want to keep with the leather sole, but I know the heels have the nails and are channel'd, so I want to make sure I get them appropriately resoled.
Broke down and bought a real one. My friend is an architect and got me 50% off of a black/walnut Herman Miller chair and I couldn't be happier. Once this thing gets broken in a bit it'll be perfect. A different friend also bought my replica off of me so it worked out great. He offered to get me the same discount on any other HM stuff so I definitley plan on taking him up on that.
Pictures of soles?
I got a pair last week and they are great. They have a nice textured look to them, almost pebbled, compared to smoother calfskin gloves. They have a nice thickness to them, the cashmere lining feels great, and they are a little longer to cover more of your wrist. They are way better than a pair of calfskin cashmere lined Coach gloves I got a couple years ago.Also picked up one of the new squares, and as usual, it looks and feels great.
