Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 130

post #1936 of 5855

I just got my first pair of White's. 8 weeks exactly. Love them except for the color of the welt stitching. I know there's been some discussion about this recently but I've never seen this type of build with anything but white. It looks like a stain or something was applied to the top of the welt (maybe from the brown edge trim?) because the bottom stitching is white. Super bummed because I assumed they would come with white. They just don't pop like they would with a white welt.

I think it’s time for a coffee break…

 

Anyone hear tried White’s boots coffee?

 

They have:

Hunter blend, Lady Packer blend, Logger blend, Farmer-Rancher blend, Packer blend, Semi-Dress blend, SmokeJumper blend, and Packer Decaf blend.

 

The Semi-dress blend sounds out of this world. Anyone tried this stuff, Thoughts?

get some saddle soap and a small welt brush and it will come right off. the dyes don't stick whatever material they use for the stitching, the stitching on mine have been "stained" by edge dye, by polish, and by general use and they have always cleaned right up.

Same hear, they sound really nice.

Just wondering, but what do you mean by "std everything else"? wink.gif

Yeah, a bad habit of mine. I work in a hospital all day and abbreviate by reflex. std = standard for all other options.

post #1943 of 5855

I think he means what do you consider standard for the other options...

Just got a pair of White's Retro Oxfords in from Baker's. Here's the pics and specs below. One thing to note, I measured and these seem to run a full size larger than a true Brannock size vs the Semi Dress boot which I feel runs about a half size larger than true to size. Unexpected, but that's what I found. These came out to $550 which is more than the boots, not sure why that is (fewer sold perhaps?) This is my first foray into the French Calf leathers.. and sure enough it is thinner, shinier, and works well on the oxfords since it looks a little dressier. And yes, these have the 1/4" lowered heel. Here are two quick crappy cell phone pics:




Retro Oxford by White's Boots
Hardware All Antique Eyes, Size - Width D (medium), Leather Dark Brown French Calf, Heel Base 90 Degree Blocked off Heel (Traveler), Toe Cap No Thanks, Sole Leather, Sole Trim Close Trim, Size - Length 11 Heel lifts: 1/4" lower

Awesome bl@ster, you're going to need more feet.  Was thinking of picking up a pair of boots for work (business casual dress) but didn't think White's had anything formal enough... but if they put together beautiful oxfords like that, maybe there's hope!

+1

Think these would look killer paired with some rivet chinos, a BR loopwheel sweatshirt and an A2

Would love to see em with a brogue captoe (or standard cap for that matter)

Bl@ster-- Nice oxfords, the French calf looks very dressy; Love it.

The perfect oxfords and white’s makes them! Thanks for posting.
