SD's look great with chinos, especially more casual ones, no argument here. Still don't think they are suit appropriate however.


See, I look at the photo and think the exact opposite.  "dressy wear" and pants bloused like you're in combat boots are just at the opposite end of the spectrum for me.  To me, that  just looks bad.

I'll admit, I only have a sample of three, and I tend to play around with sizings a little to get the fit I want, but I would agree the Packers seem to be cut smaller than the SJs or Bounty Hunters. It may be that White's assumes you will wear the SLs with heavier socks? I really don't know.

I'm not normally a fan of crepe soles, but I like how these look!

every pair of aldens i own i can wear with denim/chinos/trousers and it looks good i get compliments no matter so dressy yes. you will look out of place wearing whites no matter what configuration with chinos/trousers so dressy no.

for reference i don't consider someone really dressed up if they are wearing denim. i wear lots of denim so no hate.

I have to agree a little with crosswound. I don't think any of White's styles would work with "dress" pants. About the closest I can pull off is my black thoroughbred (pointed toe) Packers work with some pants that are on the dressier side. I will say though that I think you could wear the SDs, or Bounty Hunters with chinos/khakis. I do on a regular basis in winter and I think they look good. Also, you can wear most of the White's stuff with corduroys as long as they aren't a dress cut, more of a jeans cut. These pants I wear them with are all flat front, no pleated fronts. I think anything with a pleated front would be too dressy.

Just my opinion.

Baker usually monitors this forum, maybe they know smile.gif. Otherwise I would go with the cheaper version.

I once ordered through the buildaboot site, paid, and got confirmation, but they came back to say that Whites could not support that price. Interesting how legally binding that sale would have been - I paid, but could not get the goods at that price. Any thoughts?

Andy B. --- I haven’t worn many White's yet, but I’ve seen many pictures of White’s boots and I totally agree with your opinion at least for my wardrobe.

 

My personal wardrobe will mainly consist of...

White’s SD boots in navy CXL with medallion toe cap.

  • Vintage Pendleton wool jackets
  • Vintage Schott bomber jacket
  • French officers coat
  • Original navy Pea coat
  • Harris tweed sport coats
  • Dress shirts
  • Flannel shirts
  • Khakis
  • Blue jeans-- N&F, Lee 23oz, Levis 501xx

 

To dress up my boots with I will pair them with some khakis, a nice shirt, and a tweed sport coat.

That's how they look today.

I don't think I've used any products on them at all yet. Just a damp cloth and brushing.

4c,

That is exactly the type of wardrobe I think would work with a pair of White's. In fact, I own a lot of similar items.

Hi, I am in the process of ordering a custom Whites semi-dress from bakers, and was wondering what the following options referred to:

 

Leather liner, heel base, celastic toe box and toe bug stitching.

 

Also is there somewhere I can view pictures/prices of all the available leathers?

Many thanks

Thinking about this following combination:

 

14E,Burgundy Chrome excel,cream liner,vibram 269 sole,Brown edge,single midsole,standard last,close trim,single toebox, blocked off heel ,no toecap, all antique eyelets, no pull loops,no toe bug stitching

 

Thoughts? Thinking about making it no toebox for a more casual look, any pictures of ones with no toebox?
