If anyone can do a good side pick like this for a Semi-Dress, please do.

 

Or again, comment on the feel.

 

Thanks!

Bounty Hunter is a Smoke Jumper built on the Semi Dress Last. They can be all the same on every aspects, except the Last.

Thanks so much for these pics.  Very helpful.

 

BTW, what leathers are these?

The block heel looks so much worse then the cuban.

But, anyway, looking for someone to take over the quarterback position. Please PM me if you are willing to do so.

what are you referring to?

Thinking about getting this build with a cap toe and a cream liner. The leather here is White's black dress leather. Shit looks svelte as fuck.

apologies for less-than-stellar photos. specs for my semi-dress:
- black chromexel. lined in tan leather
- swing last
- close trim
- medallion captoe
- single leather sole
- brown edge
- lowered std. heel
- all antique hooks


post #914 of 5435
the specs sound great but I really don't dig the swing last; they would have looked killer with a standard last imo
post #915 of 5435

I'm not sure it's the swing last so much as it is the combination with a single leather sole and lowered heel. The top of the boot looks as though it's crushing the bottom, an effect that would not occur with a double leather sole and a standard heel height. If one were set on the sole combination being as is, I would agree with Slab that the lowest profile last would be ideal.
