I'm surprised they went with Julian in the first place, to be honest. I always thought of them as more of a fashion boot brand, rather than a traditional bootmaker. I think RRL went with Crockett and Jones for their Bowery boot (that's a complete guess on my part, from seeing the boot in person), and I'd imagine that calfskin is better than anything Julian used for the old Engineer boot. I'll have to check out this new boot next time I'm in an RRL shop. Seems promising! And thanks for the sizing tip.

I think youre right about the Bowerys being C&J. Personally i hate the look of the new ones and have 2 pairs of the Julian ones Ill never get rid of plus a pair in storage for the future.
Yeah def size up. I go with an 8 in every RRL boot but i got an 8.5 in this. Unlike the Julian boots they did half sizes this time. I think the two tone brown ones are almost sold out (i know alot of sizes are gone). The black ones look good too though! Ill post some fit pics tomorrow

What about the new ones do you hate compared to the older Julian ones?

Hey Robear has your package ordered on  7/2 been picked up yet? My tracking still shows "shipping information sent to Fedex" on the 6th. No pickup has been made and it's still in the "initiated" phase as of the 8th.

post #10746 of 20959

Still in initiated status with a scheduled delivery date of 7/12.

post #10747 of 20959

Cool, thanks.

-sigh. Still thinking about those buckle backs. lol. If they don't fit or whatever...HIT ME UP! biggrin.gif
post #10749 of 20959
would you guys recommend the "once rinsed/washed" or "raw" denim?
post #10750 of 20959
The once washed denim is the raw denim after they wash and bake it. Supposedly the fades won't have as much contrast on them as the raw ones, but they're softer from the start. I have a pair and I love them.
post #10751 of 20959
I'd go for the O/W personally. Has more character from the start.

I've gotten sucked into raw denim too many times. I've decided it's not worth the initial hassle. I'd go for OW, too.
post #10753 of 20959
yeah im another vote for once washed ... they are supposed to fade eventually like the raws but retain their color better for longer
post #10754 of 20959
+1 to the O/W. another thing to consider is that raw oniy comes in slim fit. bleh
post #10755 of 20959
raw slim fit is a bitch to break in.
