A couple more of the gray bullhide. Excuse the giant cuffs; I'm breaking in new denim that hasn't been hemmed yet.

To be fair, workers can appreciate fine fit and finish as much as anyone else.

This is what ol' Unicorn is posting in the Nick's thread, so I wouldn't say his contributions are overwhelmingly insightful.  Just an excuse to post his failed blogspam link.

Are you real?

 

For real though, if someone wants to talk about the quality of something, don't get in their face about it. It doesn't affect you

Work like this is just shoddy finishing. This is one example and seems to be the exception to the rule, but that doesn't mean someone can't talk about it.

well this has been a weird last few pages. Not sure why Mr. Unicorn needs to be so confrontational. There are many ways to make the same points in a much more civilized manner

Quality issues happen and from the looks of things when these issues arise White's has been quite helpful in fixing the issues. These are handcrafted boots. These are not machine made, mass produced, disposalbe footwear. When we pay $400 handcrafted boots there will be flaws because they were made by hand and made to work boot standards, meaning these were meant to be comfortable to work in all day and sustain any abuse your workplace can throw at them. if you want flawless you start getting into the viberg price range and beyond and what you are paying for is fasion and artistry, nothing wrong with these things, just held to a different standard. White's produces an incredible product for good value. After 3-4 years of very hard use mine are finally ready for a resole. that is $100 a year for boots that will go another 5 years at least. how many mass produced pair of shoes can take 4 years of beating, look better than when they were new and after a resole be ready for more service and comfort. This is what white's, nick's, wesco, viberg, danner, and others do. They pay their workers a craftsman's wage, they use high quality materials and they produce quality footwear. if you want more than this, ie perfection there are brands in Japan that can do this but i am guessing that people will complain about the ever so slight flaws and barely visible variations in their $1000 work boots.

Agreed!

As many before me, I've thoroughly read this thread planning my order. Yet, I still have some questions.

Here's the first. What is the prevailing opinion on the boot liner? Does it work better for some leather types? How much weight does the liner adds? Are the lined boots more suitable for cold weather?

Thanks!
