Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 61

post #901 of 4559
My wife and I were in Manhattan this past week and we stopped in at Grahame Fowlers on 10th st. We had a wonderful time looking things over. My wife really loved the "butterscotch" Trickers but they did not have in my size. Phew!

The only Whites in stock were the Semi Dress Brown - it was love at first sight. The color is very dark and rich. Yes they had my size. They stock single leather sole with the Cuban heel. They fit like a glove and I wore them out of the store.

After about 5 days of hoofing around they are almost broken in. I expect to get many many years out of these. Glad we stopped there.

Congrats, post some pics when you get a chance if you don't mind.

Over at the buildaboot website they have "Red Dog Silicone" and "Red Dog Oiled" listed as a leather option for Semi Dress. Does anyone have photos of these leathers used on a built boot?

Those are very good questions. I wish I had some pics as well.

If anybody is a 9d, it's your lucky day.

Are those for the rodeo clowns?

^^ That was my first guess.

Just to be clear, are these in the standard Dress Brown that one sees so often in the SD?  They look really great I think.  But they just seem smoother and a deeper brown than I have seen on the Dress Brown elsewhere. But that's what they are, is that right?

Smoke jumper in brown dress leather. Seems like this leather is nearly always used on the SD. Looks good on the SJ as well, no?

It sure looks like the same color and texture as the SD Dress Brown's I just purchased last week at Grahame Fowler.

anyone know if you can resole these boots to a width up? E.g. 8.5 c to a 8.5d

Just started wearing thick socks for the winter and these are hurting the top of my instep. I am gonna see if I can get them stretched at a cobbler

Pretty sure White's can do it.

laces question...i got my black cxl semi-dress last night and absolutely love the boots. i'm not a huge fan of the black nylon laces. what are other options people are going with? waxed black? is there a black option for the leather laces?

any input is appreciated

I'm sure you could have requested black leather laces. I picked some black leather laces at a local cobbler.

I don't think you can go up in width, only down..depending on how much room you need, they may be able to stretch a portion, but I don't know.

I tend to agree - where is that extra space going to come from!? I`ve had only but bad experiences with the wrong sizes - if it doesn't fit at the beginning, theres only hope that will help change the size - but that never materializes I`m afraid. Good luck though
