It's skewing that occurs after washing the denim. Modern jeans usually compensate for this by changing the angle of the weave during manufacture to keep the seam straight while vintage styles usually keep the "defect".

It's called a ''twisted inseam.'' Usually it happens after you wash unsanforized denim.

 

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

Because I got called out for posting a picture of a shirt on a hanger.....
Blurriness is not a filter, it's a dying camera.

I've been looking around for similar Canyon boots like the ones from RRL that Hoit has, but don't want to pay $850 for them.. or even $599. So I bought these Timberlands for $120. Very similar look and very comfortable/good quality leather.

 

 

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

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

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.

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.
