Not gonna lie, I'd do nefarious things to get a pair of back-zip boots in a makeup similar to those derbies.

The bad part about Asia is so many people wear awesome stuff but the disgusting humid summer destroys the ability to do so most of the time

What the hell?! Those boots look great. Very jealous. Do you tell him exactly what you want?

Normally no but with the bone color then almost... I've been wanting derbies like this forever and it only worked out since black front and back zips were really popular last year over here and making a variation of summer bucks wasn't that far out there.

Those shoes look awesome. Do you know if they're handwelted or Goodyear welted? And does he create a custom last for you, or does he use a standard last based on your size?

Are the shoes also put through some kind of finishing process? I don't think I've seen a custom maker get that sort of toe spring and washed leather effect before.

Welt is something you ask for. Goodyear unless specified otherwise, with the assumption that if something else is asked for then it's a Norweigiean welt for a double sole of something or other.

I'm almost certain he must just tie fucking ropes around the shoes and toss them in a river while inside a bag or something. This is where it looks good but there's been some severely overdone toe spring. I think for sneakers this particular maker doesn't care that much about realistic finishing but also goes way the fuck overboard on realistic finishing on"men's" footwear. It's a big thing just to be similar to spaghetti westerns sometimes.

My stuff is based on a standard last. My only difficult part is that my instep is high but that's not a big enough deal to go looking for custom footwear.

That's super awesome.

Did you reduce the heel height on the derbies, too? Looks better than the heel on the back-zips IMO.

Got this in. Kinda hate it. Poor, thin leather. Artsy fit, I guess you'd call it? Too tight in the sleeves, too small in the chest and too loose in the waist. Clearly they know I'm supposed to be taking the year off fashion.

Too bad, but thanks for the heads-up. Mine should get here tomorrow. Probably best that I don't have to tear my hair out trying to decide between this and the MMM 5-zip I have on the way (I'm guessing the 5-zip would've won out regardless unless this was a perfect fit).

Personally I don't mind thinner leather, but tight chest + arms and boxy waist sounds like it wouldn't work for me.
