Wow.  If you want a pair of White's and don't want to wait, now is your time.    I ordered a second pair of Bounty Hunters (this time in #8) on July 1st, and I just got shipment confirmation today.  Additionally, Kyle was going to give the edges a seal to darken them up a bit from natural, but not as dark as White's' brown edges, so not only did White's build them quickly, Kyle also had the edges sealed quickly, too.  Super impressed.
Thanks for chiming in.  I must admit, the sample of Mexcel that I got from Nick's was *really* impressive.  The natural had fantastic pull up qualities, and the burgundy was beautiful...if really dark. Now hurry up and get on those photos!  I'd love to see.
Wait...Nick's will do a pair in Whiskey shell?  Holy f. Happen to have any photos?
Really looking forward to this thread taking shape, and thanks for starting it b-ewing.   As of now I only have White's and Nick's out of the bunch, and have only had my Nick's for a couple weeks, and given it's July...they haven't gotten as much wear.  The major difference that I noticed right out of the box was that the arch isn't quite as high on the Nick's, which isn't really a problem, but I do love the idea of the arch collapsing to fit my individual feet (as the...
Might I recommend that you start one?  You've done your research, both in reading and in purchasing, and would therefore be a very qualified party to do so.  It could even be a PacNW boot thread, as that would then stay within the same style of boot, yet would keep the Red Wing and Wolverine stuff out of it (no offense to those brands, but they both have big threads as it is, and they're on a different level than Wesco/White's/Viberg/Nick's/etc).   If you'd prefer not to...
You're home now.
Ha.  If people are actually flagging a post about your obviously jocular tone about the shape of a boot heel, I do believe they need to get a hobby. Thanks for the info on the Wescos.  Without going too far into it (or maybe you should), which brand of PNW/Canadian boot do you prefer overall?  I just got my first pair of Nick's (which are beautiful), but I haven't owned them long enough to really be able to judge anything about them, and I've never owned a pair of Wescos.
Wussy lowered block heel type chiming in again... Flightmaster?  Motor Patrol Last?  Either we're not talking about White's anymore, or they've released a lot of new things recently.  Care to elaborate?
Beautiful.  Details?
In truth, it was actually Vermilyea Pelle that gave me that beautiful belt for my patience, and they weren't even the reason behind the long wait time.  Huge thanks/props to Dustin at VP for treating me so well. While the wait wasn't ideal, I own enough other boots that it wasn't a huge deal to me, and sometimes that whole "good things come to those who wait," thing is right.  For me, this is one of those cases.  Dark olive CXL is about my favorite leather out there, so to...
