Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 192

post #2866 of 3609
Hi Ben and co, thinner leathers will come lined in the vamp, and nearly all thinner leathers are the more expensive ones so you are paying for lining at the same time. Thicker leathers do not cone lined in the vamp unless you ask for it. Put your hand inside an unlined CXL and you should feel it. Early Happy New Year to all. Was thinking I might try and ween myself off of expensive boots this coming year....we all know how that will turn out!

Gentlemen:

 

I've ordered a new White's boot in natural chromexcel.

 

Question from this newbie is this: What belt colors can I get away with?. Currently, I own the usual blacks, browns and burgundy varieties. Do I need to buy some new belts?

 

Thanks,

There's a seller on Etsy called One Star Leather Goods who sells a variety of chromexcel items, and among them are custom natural CXL belts for only $60.  My belt matches my boots perfectly, and if you're going to pony up $500 for a pair of boots you can throw in a few extra to complete the look.  Any other color belts are obvious non-matches, and when you receive the boots you'll see what I mean.

Belts made of the same leather as your boots are too matchy-matchy IMO. I say get a natural veg tanned belt that will evo along with your boots, but still look slightly different...

Then again i wear my natty veg tanned belt by Unlucky with black boots and leather jackets all the time! Talk about fashion faux pas tongue.gif

My dark brown and black cherry (toe cap and back part) in SD, although the colors are pretty much indistinguishable unfortunately.

diazawaguy,

Who cares if those two leather colors look similar, those boots look great!!!! happy.gif Seriously though, they are a nice-looking pair of boots.

I love the white laces! I'd have them brown from dirt or stained indigo in a week. They look excellent with those boots. thumbs-up.gif

What are the details of this makeup?
post #2877 of 3609
Black cherry water buffalo for the toe cap as well as rear part, and dark brown for the front. Apart from that much as you can see with the 700 sole I think it's called and pretty much standard otherwise. Single celastic toe.

Oh, and serious amounts of TLC and sapphire neutral cream! Too much many might argue though! But hey, a SD should be dressy,no!?
post #2879 of 3609
My remake SDs came in today; perfect fit!!!

My initial order was 10D these are 9.5E. Size down and out seems to be my rule of thumb for the #55 last.



(Great pic, I know biggrin.gif )
