Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 228

Now for my next pair! My work environment is casual (jeans) and I purchased the BHs with that in mind. As luck would have it I have just accepted a position in a business casual (khakis/chinos). I have seen some post where some assert that SFs do not make suitable dress boots. I don't know if you really need "dress boots" for khakis, but would not some configurations qualify as "dress boots"? What makes a dress boot? I was thinking if configured appropriately it would definitely work with khakis, if not even slacks and a sport jacket. Does anyone have any experience trying to wear SFs in that sort of situation?

Maybe I am just blanking here, but what are SFs?

As far as dress boots, I'd say a black SD on black dress leather or HH would fit the bill. Or check out Alden boots for a lower profile. I think black Indys look pretty cool for a dressier look.

I agree. They work good with heavy wool flannel though. biggrin.gif

b-ewing,

I like that! How durable are those soles?

Andy, good question and one I've been asking myself. From what I understand its pretty legit stuff and should wear as good as any NOS Biltrite, Cat's Paw, O'Sullivans or similar cord/neoprene soles you can find.

Does anyone have any solid pics of well worn in cxl boots with a toe cap? I am curious to see how the cxl creasing paired with a worn toe cap looks. Im trying to decide if I want a toe cap or not.

Looking good. How does the toe cap feel? Or does it not change anything?

I wear soft toe, no steel toe cap, no celastic. My toes can move freely, quite enough space for my feet.

Burgundy French Calf or Burgundy CXL for casual use? Any thoughts?

Haha I figured that!

I say French calf. More of a dress leather, and requires a lining because its thinner. But patina is the payoff
