Just in time for Old Man Winter's annual beatdown, may I present our Thorogood collaborative piece for 2012!
The No. 542 Work Oxford is a seriously rugged shoe that's a bit of a throwback to an original 1950's Thorogood shape. We ordered in the the same dark brown Horween Horsehide as our other collab pieces. It has a Goodyear welted Vibram "Cristy" wedge sole and a gel/poron insole. Two sets of laces are include: the cobalt blue Benjos flat-waxed laces that are pictured, and a pair of brown cotton athletic laces. As always, these are union made in the United States.
This is our fourth style with Thorogood to date. We've gotten excellent feedback from hundreds of customers on the fit, quality, and longevity of these products. If you need a tough-ass shoe for both fair and foul weather, these can take anything that you throw at it, and they'll age beautifully.
Please note the fitting guides in our item description. We recommend sizing down ONE FULL size from your normal dress shoe size.
If you usually wear a 10 in dress shoes, then get these in a 9.
If you take a 10 in a Clarks Desert Boot or a Converse Chuck Taylor, then get these in a 9
If you take a 10 in the Barrie/Tru Balance last, get these in a 9.5.
If you take a 10UK in Carmina, then get these in a 10.
If you have any questions or need additional guidance, then please send it our way. Thanks!
