Hello,   Viberg x Iron Heart "Wild One's Engineers" - Size 9, Black - £430 Including shipping in Europe (small extra fee for shipping further a field - pm me). Only worn out for a day and tried on a few times in the house but have decided they are too big and quite possibly not my style, just really wanted them as they look super cool! The only modification I have made is a couple of extra holes in the ankle strap to tighten them as shown below. Payment through paypal...
The bump before the bay..
Hello,   I bought this jacket from a member on the IH forum knowing that it was probably a bit on the small side, especially as I've packed out a wee bit of recent and it is just that bit too small on me on the shoulders and across the back. I really do wish it did fit as it would have been a complete bargain for such a beauty. I've handled a lot of leather jackets in my time and this is genuinely one of the nicest leathers I have come across, and it's not even broken in...
Don't say his name 3 times, we've all seen beetlejuice.
It all depends on how tightly pulled they were when lasted, I've had 2 pairs made in the exact same options and they have fit quite differently including the height and shape of the toe.
Hi all, been a while, some new styles in, lets see what captain Louie has to say about block heels
You can get a different tongue colour to the rest of the boot Bingham, good look as well!
Hard to say as they both look different in the top 2 pics. The only other last they could have been made on is the c461 which has a pointier to but you'd also see a difference in shape throughout. I'd check with White's but I'm pretty sure it will be down to how they were lasted not the last itself. I've spotted these differences a fair bit on repeat stock orders, particularly with the thinner leathers and soft toe's. Good luck.
^ unless they are 2 different widths it is most likely the black were pulled tighter to the last when hand lasted. They look like they are both SD lasts from above (side shot would confirm). The toe cap always makes them look overly bulbous with a thicker leather anyway Imo. To the trained eye no 2 pairs of the same build often look exactly the same. Different bootmakers in the workshop and different leathers = varying results. Construction and comfort always top notch...
You shouldn't have to at all which I do highlight to white's but any cobbler/ shoe smith can have that trimmed back and even slightly re-shaped and re-coloured in under 10 minutes and I'm sure for under $15 over there.
