•Hopper was fab👌🏼 ... the Inside-Out is a bit too trendy/faddish w/c is really not their niche ... well, not yet.Aside from camel leather, I'd be down for horsehide or w/e on some fancy tannage__ like the Pit Tanned Bison, w/c undergone the same tanning process as their shell cordovan.
^Does it really need to be "something way out there" ?! IMO, getting a leg up utilizing rare leathers X (tastefully) tweaked out classic models = pretty unique + awesome as it is, IMO
Chelsea in non-black Camel hide👍🏼

Fab👌🏽 lifestyle stain on the Hoppers👢As a fellow denimhead, I live for indigo ... but, [RAW]👖 are indefinitely off limits to mine. 'Strong aversion to indigo stains on anything__ I'd like to keep it strictly in the jeans, if I can help it.However, we'll see how things progress__ quite the newb on the whole engineers steez😊 ... Oh! Thank god I held on to my straights__ slim tapered won't do on these.

1stly, country lasts are meant to be worn w/ medium to thick socks. For Stow & Allan, I went the same size as my Vibergs, [non-2030] since 4497s are 5-fitting. Maltons, I'm 1/2 down as they're 6-fitting. Grassmere Scotch Grain, eventho they're also 6-fitting, had to TTS as leather does not stretch much. Have not tried 4444. But, from what I've read so far, I think I can pull off a 1/2 down [as on the Maltons], but only on the Derby shoes. On boots__ since there's...
•Thanx🙏🏼 ... U got some fab boots acquisition, as well.I sometimes switch laces F/W & S/S just to break the monotony. Bought those laces @ConverseStore in SoHo. They make it @whatever lenght u want. The quality is much better than the pre-packed ones available in-store. The tips copper or something metallic, so they don't crack or fray.Actually, I'm thinking of asking if they can change the tips on the [spare] flat waxed laces I've put aside.
'Used to have apprehensions taking on Viberg 1035 due to fEEt size As it turns out, this particular last is the most versatile across [all?] of Vibergdom, IMO. The shape of the toe allows more forefoot access. A great feature for true E-E+ folks like me. Though not as sleek as 2030, 1035 unstructured & partially structured has lower profile toe ...even the fully structured toe is still lower, as compared to 2040/2045/110/310.
