Thanks guys, think i'm gonna steer clear of Black Smooth and CXL since I have two pair in hat leather.   Down to Black Dress or Black Horsehide. Although i'm a bit apprehensive about HH as the creasing issues I've seen i'm not to much of a fan of in a slightly dressier boot. CXL creases to some extent but it seems to look better in brown then when it happens in black. I'm not gonna do a full two tone boot but will get the back stay in brown and the rest of the boot in...
Thanks guys!     Next question: Black Smooth Black Dress Black CXL   I know CXL is less shiny than Black Dress but how does the Smooth and Dress compare in terms of shiny? I actually like a less shiny if that helps.   I've heard Dress can look "plasticy" ?
So two different kinds of black leather huh? Interesting.   I love those SD's bro. So very nice!     PS: Anyone know if the SD last is more roomy, less roomy than the C461 Last? I've only ever had experience with the 461 and was curious if I should stick to what i know or try something different. I'm very tempted to do the Swing Last but my Viberg Service Boots already have that kind of look.
Very Nice guys! Thanks for the input.   I think i'm leaning towards doing the toe vamp, tongue and back stay in black and then do the upper in brown for some contrast.   Wanna go back into the thread to see if I can find some two tone black/brown SD's   research research lol
Oil Tanned = Black Smooth, correct?
Ok guys need some opinions! :)   I'm gonna be getting a new Pair of White's SD in the fall and i was gonna do black since I don't have any boots in black.   I have two pairs of CXL boots and i'm not against having these made in CXL but wanted to get some opinions.   I'm a teacher, so these are monday-friday 8-10 hour a day boots but not work boots. I wanted some thoughts on which type of Black leather you would go with.   The rest of the build will look like...
Thanks bro!
Wasn't to lucky in my searching for pics of Black SD's in HH so if anyone has any pics, tit would be helpful as I'm leaning towards this leather for my next build. I have no black boots and i'm starting a new job where having them would be a useful. I have two pairs of high end boots in CXL, id like to try something different and I really like the Brown HH pics I see but black seems to more elusive.
I went through White's on my first build and based on my tracings and what i wear in sneakers, they suggested 8D for both feet. My first pair were unlined and after a while the boots started to feel sloppy and loose (Over a few years) and I had heard through the grapevine here that Bakers can resize you down if thats ever an issue. I spoke to Kyle, he suggested new tracings and to send the boots in. I did, he called my a few days later and said based on your tracings your...
