isn't 10% the same as the first time buyer discount?

I'd say a Repello suede pinch penny or maybe a beefroll. They used to have a lot of colors of Repello on the site, but it seems as if they've pared that down. They may still have access to those colors though.

They won't do the Repello unlined, but it is pretty soft so it might still work well. Or maybe the suede they use for the Casco loafers if there's a color you like.

Or if grey works for you go with the kudu suede. That stuff is tough, thick and floppy and they'll do it unlined. I'd get that in a second if they had it in snuff or polo or sand or something in a the brown range.

Also, FYI, @dieworkwear tried substituting Rancourt for Alden with limited success in re. floppiness.

last I checked Rancourt requires a lining to make a shoe with repello suede, which totally negates the floppiness. that being said, the repello suedes are excellent - I used the burgundy to accent a pair of moccs and its been going strong for 3-4 years.

Yes. I noticed that offer. They didn't used to offer that. I wouldn't say 10% is terribly compelling to consider an entirely unanticipated purchase. It's nice if you've been waiting for the discount for something you knew you want.

In that light a lot of this discounting is pretty silly. Anyone who is savvy about a given retailers habits knows to defer a purchase until they get this little yapa.

The other discounted items might be interesting. They showed a couple of shoes at $150. But this is specific styles, so it would have to suit you.

When are you going to take Kyle out for a half dozen beers and conveniently have Stead's phone number ready to go so that he calls up and orders a run of Kudu suede in brown?

Something along the lines of "Bro... Bro... you totally have to call and order this suede... Bro..."

They do a 10%-off incentive every Black Friday.  

[edit: sorry, I mis-read your post. Yes, you are correct, it is the same.]

I'll buy him a case of whatever he wants if i can get kudu options by this spring.

(on the real I'll probably holler at someone before the holidays and try to get the ball rolling. its going to be hard to make a loafer in anything else this spring)

Natural is probably natural CXL, as compared to Essex.

hi!

 

what about Lactae Hevea crepe outsole in the cold weather?

my feet pretty cold in crepe of clarks wallabees.

did anybody wear Lactae Hevea crepe outsole in 30ºF(0ºС) and below?

post #6972 of 7403
It's a little thicker than wallas and the leather between the sole and the shoe helps dampen the cold.

hi,

does anyone know how the sizing from Russell Boot compared to red wing 9111 (round toe) is please ?




regards
RWL

@redwinglover I don't have any Red Wings, but I've found the Russell to be TTS. It has decent width (compared to Blake boots and handsewns) and runs true for length. So as an 11D Brannock, that's what I wear in Russell. They are nice boots.
