Thanks! That's cool, never really knew that.

In this case, I think it's crease from not being folded properly they were packed and shipped.

 

Now that I look at it I think it's mostly how they were folded...and it must have been for a long time.

If I straighten that leg out there is almost a worn-in line from top to bottom in the front and back from where it was folded odd.

Not sure if that's something I can get out.

What do you guys think, are Moc Toe/ Crepe sole played out???


I actually think those look pretty good. And judging by the picture, the leather and sole look good. I say rock those bad boys with some jeans and a nice flannel.

I didn't feel like shopping around and waiting for a shipment to come in so I bought in store to get something new for this season that looked rugged but was lightweight and comfortable, most of my other boots are too heavy/not breathable/clunky to wear year round in Miami.

 

The pictures don't do them justice they are a very cherry red color in real life and very thick, yet very soft leather and contrast triple stitching all around. I was surprised Timberlands offered something decent because most of their stuff sucks. The Earthkeepers collection isn't half bad.

 

These are basically a test run for me. If I like the style and don't get bored of them,  I'll buy these in a few months.

Is it common on one leg only?

I've seen other pairs like this.

And is it OK to straighten out that leg? (if I line up the seems they do line up correctly like the other leg. So I'd like to make them the same if possible).


New to this type of thing with jeans...thanks. sorry for all the questions!

Great value but the sole looks too sporty with the heel and thinning out in the front. They look like air max canyon boots. I'd get the Red Wings.

It's common, that's why there's a name for it. Folding them differently isn't really going to change them. You might temporarily straighten it.

If it stresses you out that much maybe you shouldn't wear vintage denim.

I suggest Yuketen, Oak Street Bootmakers or Quoddys - Highly recommend either of them, and all under 599, but Quoddy's do run a little expensive their boots are ~400-450, and Yuketen's can be found on sale for ~300, but I don't follow the market enough to say when and where, just happen to see them go that low by chance. Oak Street's Brown Hunt boot runs for $376

Doesn't really stress me out...just trying to learn some things about vintage denim.

Why does it only happen on one leg? I guess that's what's confusing me.

And how do I know that it's a "twisted inseam" and not that they were just folded wrong?

With a twisted inseam can you technically make them line up like they should? (with the side that has the twist on these I can. I can make the seems line up just like they do on the other side)

Thanks!

I wasn't recommending Red Wings specifically. He posted a link for Red Wings in that style for $200. For that price I would choose them over the timbs. I'm sure RRL Clothing is familiar with those brands.

RRL must release the Cord slim bootcut again, love the fit on these but mine are now retired. Last release was few years ago....don't know why they stop producing them.

Sorry, another stupid question guys.

On the inside of the back pockets of the slims I just bought there is like paper/felt material (you can easily rip it) in between where the stitches are (they fit perfectly between the stitch design). Some of it has fallen out, some is still there. What is this for? Is it supposed to be taken out?

 

Just curious.

First pic is looking inside the pocket. Second is just a pic of what the pieces I pulled out look like.

 

Thanks!

Never saw that before, Its production related I would believe. Are these new season ?

I don't think so. I bought them from an rrl reseller online. I'm guessing they are at least a season old.

 

They are my first pair of new rrl slims so I wasn't sure if this was something that was normal.

 

Should I just throw out the paper/felt stuff?

 

Here's a couple pics. If someone knew what season these were that would be cool too!

You can see the "twisted inseam" that is only on one leg here both in the front and back. I still think it's odd that's only on one leg.
