For those who are unfamiliar with Kiya, he is the Steve McQueen of Persian Denim perveyors who like myself made the voluntary choice that hair slowed him down. To speak accurately, Kiya is the most influential individual in the United States denim market since denim was created...thus making him the most important and influential individual who has ever exposed the United States to denim. I'm not talking about the NY garmentos who enter and exit the denim world every 3-6 years, each time with a brand which further deteriorates their already non-existent group of admirers.

Without Kiya, we have no Flat Head, We have no Iron Heart, We have no Sugar Cane, we have no Dry Bones, we have no Strike Gold, we have no RJB and , most important;y, we have no Roy. Kiya is on the verge of doing what Michael Milken made an artform out of in the 80's. We call it a hostile takeover. I do not see the department of trade getting involved when SE starts carrying Samurai, Studio, PBJ and Momotoro. Blue in Green tries to be so authentic that they literally cannot communicate with their perspective U.S. customers. Just as AT&T lost the iphone, Kiya will soon be carryingall of these brands and will stop his ceasefire with a store which fails to understand that their goal os to be one of two leading outposts where Americans can purchase the finest Japanese Denim. Go get 'em, McQueen!

I'm (obviously) very flattered, you should write our press blasts for us.
FYI, the SE thread is right this way: http://www.styleforum.net/t/26625/self-edge-sf-ny-la-japanese-denim-more-flat-head-iron-heart-strike-gold-3sixteen-roy-etc-affiliate-thread/5625

Add an insole. Buy a couple of different thicknesses - experiment.

Just wondering whether the 2030 last (with unstructured toe) is significantly sleeker/slimmer than the Red Wing Iron Ranger (D width) last?

 

I'm thinking about getting a pair of service boots but I want to be able to dress these up with slim chinos and a collared shirt (possibly even with a casual suit) and not look like my boots have just stepped out of a construction site and/or a clown performance.

 

I find the IR last balloons around the mid foot and looks really chunky and a bit clowny.

How about compared to the Wolverine 1000mile as well? I'm looking for something a little sleeker than these as well.

 

Some photos I see of the 2030 service boot look nice and slim and dressy and some look kind of chunky.

 

If anyone has fit pics of these with slim jeans/chinos, that would be grand as well.

 

Thanks.

I do own both IR ranger and wolverine Addison and will soon get my first viberg shoe with a 2030 last (but the Oxford). I tried the cordovan 2030 service boot in the store and its definitefely a more dressier shoe that goes very well with chinos and a more upscale outfit. There are plenty of pictures on google!
The wolverine is in between and a shoe that I also love but always wear with jeans (the colour is tan).
The IR is for going to a concert, bad weather, and is more sturdy. The "balloony" look will fade over time as the front becomes more flat.
Hope that helps..

the unstructured toe on some of the 2030's that you have shown are what contribute to the sleeker look, where as the ones with toe reinforment have a little higher profile, that being said I own redwings, and whites and the service boot with the structure toe that i own are much dressier than either of those. Look much closer to a casual/dress boot than to a typical work boot. though they look great with denim too.

Cool - thanks lads, that's exactly the advice I was after.

PSA - One size left of Nigel Cabourn x Viberg at Barney's warehouse.  Also have the loden green chukka in a couple of odd sizes.

I've tried a few options...nothing's working.  I have to admit I am really disappointed.  I gave pretty specific details and foot drawings and these shoes just came out beautiful but big...it's quite a bummer for $700, but I guess that was the risk I was taking...They do look good though.  They are making their way to the forums now.  Super sad...700

I am curious whether anyone here got a pair of the ready-to-wear black horsehide service boots (2045 last) that were sold off the new website.  If so, I'd love to see pics of them in the wild.  (Also, if anyone has a pair in 9.5 that they may be interested in selling, I might be interested in buying. They are sold out and not being replenished.)
