i'll try to get pics up this weekend...still dealing with the frankenstorm in my neck of the woods (2 feet of snow and power outages).

my order was placed on sept. 5 and they arrived at my door nov. 1.

Haha, why am I not surprised that the timing gap is freakishly accurate?

I ordered a week and a half after you (sept 17) and have another week and a half to go.

Sorry to hear about the storm Can't wait to see em when you can share. Cheers.

it`s fine with regular socks. but when I go with a thicker wool socks, my left foot starts to hurt where it touches the side of the counter. I look inside and the creases on the inside lining isn`t as pronounced as the other foot. Would stretching be able to target that area?

First time I've seen the Semi-Dress with a lug sole. I think this one looks pretty good.

I'm sure whites offers a leather lace. You could also get a spool from Tandy that will last you forever.

Something like this:

Here they are:

Well, I got them! They are White's Semi-Dress in brown with vibram 629 soles (White's calls them Western Soles). Ordered them directly from White's and honestly they are comfortable out of the box. This is my first pair of Semi-Dress', but not my first pair of White's. I  had my measurements taken at the factory in Spokane a few years ago. Thank you for all the info and advice!

How do they do their measurements in person? Same as the ones of the instructions with a measuring tape?

That looks nice.

I might do a bounty hunter version of unicorn`s red dog/natural sj setup

Yes with the measuring tape, but I believe they go more in depth..with your foot held up, standing, foot and calf measurements, they look at your actuall foot and how you walk. I live in WA  and I fight fire for the FS, so it was a no-brainer to go to the shop, but I realize others are not close at all. They have great people that work there, so if one is not able to make it, self measurements and phone conversations can = a great fit.  Also, it is very convenient because they have my measurements on file, so when I want another pair of boots, I just tell them the model or specifics and they know exactly what size ect to make it...I'm loving these semi dress's!

Nice! I did the measuring tape while sitting down with your foot crossed over and measured at different spots and also did the tracings. I am usually a C width but baker`s got me a B instead. Wonder how they do it instead. Anyone know?
