Searched but didn't find an answer to this. Since Jcrew doesn't seem to have any burgundy/wine cords left I'm looking at LEC's Merlot pair. Does anyone know if the slim fit cords fit similar to the slim jeans (I have a pair of those already)?
I have two pairs. One tapered and one straight. Both are quite a bit larger in the waist than tagged. I would probably suggest sizing down 2-3 sizes if you don't have large thighs/thick legs.
I'm a little late to this thread so I don't know what UO was asking for the 60/40, but I checked out a couple places that were asking $400 for their mountain parka. From what I've followed on Ebay, vintage ones often go for less than a third of that. $400 seems awfully high for an item like this. Especially since you can frequently find vintage Made in USA models from other manufacturers for under $50 on Ebay that look 90% identical to Sierra Design's 60/40.
I can say from experience that Christ Wedge soles are not great for winter wear (very slippery on ice). For winter you want a lug sole imo. Here's a couple decent looking pairs under $200.http://workingperson.com/footwear-1/mens-work-boots/motorcycle-boots/chippewa-boots-soft-toe-motorcycle-boots-25290-106376.htmlhttp://www.onlineshoes.com/mens-chippewa-20082-6-inch-lace-up-tan-rodeo-p_id243928
ceoceo's post reminded me of this song, But as to not be completely unhelpful, I own a pair of Mountain Light II's and think they're fantastic boots. Without knowing why you're looking into them, I can't unconditionally recommend them though. They're sturdy/heavy duty hiking boots and probably are not the best choice if you just want something for casual winter(?) wear.
Isn't it pretty simple to remove a Topy? Why not have them remove it and keep that pair?
Even if it didn't have the giant scorpion? I think it's a pretty cool/wearable jacket otherwise.
I don't recall people complaining about quality issues with the original W&H boot. And while I can't speak for my new pair since they've barely been used, my other pair of Dayton boots that I've had for about a year now have held up fine. There has definitely been some quality control issues with this run of boots, but I don't feel like it speaks for Dayton as a whole. So far I'm very satisfied with my new service boots.
The 511 has never worked for me because of the low rise and the 501 is nice but could benefit from more of a taper. So I guess this cut has me interested if it isn't just a variation on the 514.
I'd say Islander's assessment is correct as far as the front of the boot goes; my EE is comparable in the ball and toe box to some boots I have in D width. The heel is a little wider than a standard D though. Since I have a wide forefoot and narrow heel the EE was my only choice, but it also means the heel is a little loose without an insole (which I wear anyway, so ultimately not a big deal for me).
