Beautiful! And almost exactly what I'm planning to order real soon;-)
^^11EE looks better. The 11.5D (is it a D?) looks too long and too narrow to me but I could be completely wrong. Ultimately, your feet will have to decide. So how do the boots feel? What do you like or dislike about the two sizes?
Stock brown smooth Farmer/Ranchers after some wear. They look nicer with every mile.meanwhile , I'm waiting for funds to accumulate for two more pairs. Brown dress SDs, possibly in a captoe config, and two-tone LTT SJs. Still unsure on the leather combo. Maybe light brown and dark brown bullhide which would look something like this:(I know this is plain toe, but the buildaboot configurator doesn't render LTT correctly)or red dog and distressed rough-out...the...
I bought these on ebay from a seller in (I think) Oklahoma who claimed they were from the warehouse of a hardware store that went out of business in the late 70s.   These boots have never been worn. They are made of thick, dense oil tan leather with stitched-on Goodyear soles and Armortred heels. They look identical to the old Red Wing Pecos but are not Red Wing – I have no idea who made them.   The leather is beautifully supple, the soles are still flexible and show...
^Holy Shit! Those are beautiful. And rare. Congratulations...
Interesting kilties;-)
 They both are beautiful!Funny that the heel length is different between the two pairs. I would actually prefer the somewhat shorter heel on the brown pair.The midsole of the black one is different from all other White's midsoles I've seen. It looks much thinner, making for a dressier look, more flexibility and less weight. In addition, you have 269 Vibram sole on the black oxfords, which tapers from approx. the same thickness as the 700 to about half that thickness in the...
Not always, apparently. FWIW, here's a pic of my 8" Farmer/Rancher's pull loops and back stay. They're made out of separate pieces of leather in this case. But at least the width of the pull loop and the upper end of the stay are the same, whereas on Bingham's boots they clearly don't match.
^^The green shell is unreal. Wow! Boot envy!
 Quabaug Corporation of North Brookfield, Massachusetts apparently manufactures the heels and also the Vibram soles. There are of course Vibram manufacturing plants in other places including Europe and presumably China. But I wouldn't be surprised if the old school soles like the 100, 269, 430 and 700 (which probably represent a rather small specialist market) were made in MA exclusively. I know that for some boots White's are using the fireproof Technora aramid (a close...
