curious to see your ebay link too ;)
interested in a couple things
I'd go with the black jean jacket. It's not everyday that you come across a black jean jacket--especially one that's been pre-distressed (seems like you like that thing). In addition, it might add more a bit more than the Becker Jacket. For instance, you can wear the jean jacket under a blazer or CPO. The good thing is that you can't really go wrong. Hope that helps.
Yeah. Kinda what I'm thinking.... versatility, layering, splendidness....
Yes, Isaac can be hit or miss at times. I've worked with Daniel and Jun at the bleecker location and both were very helpful.
How much??? I was thinking of doing it in the future on some Thorogoods or Red Wings, but figured it would cost about as much as the boots themselves (~$100) and maybe not worth the hassle. Picked up the 875 on ebay recently for $140 and a few colors of Thorogoods from Amazon for $100 shipped.
You can get the Vibram soles on ebay for $20. I figure labor is easily $60-80 for a welt job.
Pics of before/after?
If you're looking for another set of very comfortable and well made moc wedge, check these out. They're so fucking awesome and cheap it's ridiculous.
