Ok, that makes sense as long as the White's SD last 9 will be comparable to Alden Indy. I think with the E width I should be ok. Anybody find any major sizing difference between Indy and SD?

Thanks,

One thing I found with the rolled top is that it makes it thicker, and more difficult to tie the top well...

What's the difference between a Farmer-Rancher and Bounty Hunter if both are 6"?

Thanks man. Any opinion on the comfort of a leather sole vs. one of the low-profile vibrams?

Off topic but not really.
I have a pair of custom SD's in natural cxl on the way and thought of a way to help me wait 8 weeks. I had Nick Hollows create a cover for my work key fob with natural cxl and stitching to match my boots.
Very happy with the custom work of Hollows Leather and can't wait to own more of his goods. It will be fun to compare patina between the fob and my boots.

If indy is on the Barrie last, then no.
My Alden barrie size is my SD size.
I also have a wider foot and size for width more than length.
Work boots such as White's have ample room in the toe box.

I just saw via White's on Facebook that new orders are running 4-5 weeks. Special orders could be longer.

Should I expect a similar timeframe if I ordered through Bakers?

Hrumph. Anyone stock a Semi-Dress in Dress Brown with all eyelets?

post #1195 of 5391
almost nobody stocks White's period, they are almost always custom order. Exceptions I know of off hand are Graham Fowler who stocks the standard brown dress SD with single leather sole (has speed hooks though) and Orvis has a version in a different leather as well (buffalo maybe, can't recall right now). Don't know of anyone else who stocks them on hand.

Yeah--what leather are they using, though? I emailed I+W a couple of weeks ago asking, but I never got a response.

Wow, didn't know that...they have a couple cool builds...I like the black cap toe with the 1/2 sole a lot. Sort of want to order those now....

We have the SD in Brown Dress, hooks up top though and based in the UK. The site is live and fully working, just a few tweaks to be done: www.eastwestapparel.co.uk

Hey Jamie,

Can you tell us a bit about the pebbled grain "Voyager" leather from White's? Is it as strong and thick as cow leather? Need it be lined? Any pics of it in use on a boot? Thx!
