Price Increase Savings? Aldens will cost $40 after Feb. 26, but if bought before then they're only $20? Fail at English.
I've had these jeans for two years now. This is what they look like. Enjoy. The warp has been worn near the hem from cuffing. Some roping starting to show at the hem, but limited by a lack of tension in the chainstitch. Broken inseam chainstitch where they were cuffed. I found some details on the jeans that I didn't appreciate before. Tucked belt loops under the waistband. The selvage outseam shows more pronounced fading on one...

I find the 10" height ideal - it comfortably allows you to leave the top two lace holes unlaced, as you should on high boots, and means they work well with knee-high gaiters if you're in deep snow. Good product. +1 I have the 10" MHS as well and have worn them in the rain and snow here in the...

Quote: Originally Posted by brothersharp I bought them back in October, and all that I knew was that they looked nice and were handcrafted--therefore being durable to the point of achieving 'lifetime-lasting' status. Luckily, the post holiday blizzard in NY gave me a great chance to see exactly how durable they were. These things do not equate. Shoes last a lifetime from proper maintenance and appropriate wear. Those boots look like they've...
