I'm leaning toward the Thorogood because it's a sleeker boot and I kind of what to go that direction with my next purchase, but I'm still somewhat undecided.

That's definitely an issue with anything that doesn't have a Lug Sole. The Danner boot is definitely a better choice for really terrible conditions, but most guys will opt for a Thorogood / Indy Boot / Wolverine 1000 Mile because of it's wearability in normal conditions. Unless you have ice on the ground a lot, it might not be an issue. And something like the Thorogoods can be easily worn in April-May, thereby extending its seasonal use.

But getting a lug piece cemented onto the bottom of the Thorogood might give you the best of both worlds. If you have a local cobbler, you can always swing by and see what they offer before your order.

All the Walts should be shipped now, we just received the Rudy's this past Friday, so those should go out by Tuesday.

Yes, I was working with Loake but once we got the Carmina account I canned all of our other footwear projects. Carmina absolutely knocked me out when I saw it - you guys are going to LOVE these shoes.

got my wheat donegals in the mail yesterday...these things are incredible IRL, the pics don't really do them justice. Need to drop these off to get hemmed ASAP! I can definitely see myself wearing the hell out of these during fall/winter this year.

Mike,

Would you consider a restock of the Liberty of London Mitsi shirt, particularly in XS?

Just ordered the Donegal Walts in cocoa. If fit is fire I'm coming back for the charcoal.

What is the difference between the normal khaki Rivet Chinos and the Japanese Chinos? I'm not sure what the difference is in the fabrics.

I have all three fabrics, so here goes:

- British Khaki - normal light twill - it has a pretty smooth feel

- Japanese Twill Khaki - this is the softest and has almost a velvet feel to the outside

- Canvas Khaki - it's a smoothish canvas - you can see the canvas weave from the closeups.  It's not as smooth as the British Khaki and not as soft as the Japanese, but the inside of the canvas has sort of a soft microfiber feel.

 

Personally, the canvas is my favorite and I think canvas is underrated. It's the most casual, though.

Just out of curiosity, are there any plans to do more corduroys this season? I have been wearing my wheat ones from last year heavily and would love to add a few more to the collection...

Mike, please tell me you will get your Carminas into the SoHo store before Thanksgiving... I need to come in for a sizing before I leave NYC.

Sent a PM over the weekend, not sure if it's USPS being USPS, but I've got a package that was shipped on 11/13 that hasn't been delivered yet. Usually my Epaulet swag comes within 3 days.

Just got my cocoa donegal and grape walts. Considering these colors are quite unique, can I get some tips on what color blazer to pair them with?

Navy for the cocoa and either camel hair or olive for the grape. Also grape would look great with a v-neck of some kind.

I received my charcoal donegal tweeds this Saturday and wearing them for the first time today. I must say these have become my new favorite. They are so comfortable and the texture is just bonkers.

I just received my gray canvas chinos. Holy hell they are good. I'm so glad I did not sleep on these. Nathan's comments about the microfiber feel is spot on. They are so comfortable.

I was afraid the fit would be too straight legged for me (I prefer skinny cuts, APC PS / Levis 511) but it works quite well. I might hem them but they look good cuffed 3x right now.
