I'd also be down for an all black side zip boot. Black leather with black leather sole (or dainite would be cool too).

I did. Here's an on foot picture of them.

Just got off the phone with Drew.  Some cool leather choices in both black for the chelsea or sidezip, as well as interesting lighter brown colors, and a few good options for a stitchdown "tough" boot as well.  I'll get back to you guys when I have more concrete information.

 

The sidezip has never been done before for production, so it would be pretty exciting to be the first people to do one!

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

Oh, and there is no more icy mocha CXL.  That I have confirmed.

 

310 guys, have you gotten your relative acts together for something that can actually be put up for a vote?

Strongest argument for a sidezip over a Chelsea this round.

 

Thanks Fok, look forward to hearing what the options are.

A lot of folks who missed out on the 110 half Japanese oxfords might like this design.

 

With a black midsole it would be sinister looking. With age and wear they'd look so awesome. Let's call it the Sinister Oxford.

 

But, a Black waxed Scout boot on commando on the 110(or 1035 if that's what it took to get made) with black midsole would be pretty kick ass too. Let's call it the Spymaster boot.

 

The money you spent on the cool oxfords will be long forgotten by the joy of wearing them.

Love it and the names:   Let's go Sinister Oxford & Spymaster.   

 

One thing that I completely lack is buyer's remorse.   At Van Afferden prices, I'll pucker a little, but I always buckle when it comes to VBs that I want.

This is the stuff along with the big clunkyass oxfords that brought me to VB years ago.   This boot was the next one on my list before VB shut down the MTO.   I've got a little nostalgic warm spot going.   Let's make this happen.

Light brown Chelsea (no side zip) and a tough boot would both get my vote once we hear the details. :happy:

Thinking of a replacement for the Icy Mocha CXL, how would you two (@dekalog @Akeem) describe the thickness and texture of the "Vintage Mocha"?  Does it seem like a thicker, workboot style leather, or more of a causal leather?

 

For those interested in the (killer awesome) Millwright boot, what do you think about leathers:  Vintage mocha (pending report); Natural CXL; "Crust" CXL (I have no idea what that means, but they now have it on the site); or maybe just good old fashioned Brown Oil Tan..?

 

@Bobbo316 @meso @Steel28 @bry2000 @vettemike @ShootThePier

 

Fok (@LA Guy), any word on lowering the heel on the 310?  Thanks!

I really like the Millwright. So much so, that I'm entertaining the idea of another brown boot.
I think you have enough without me, but I'll probably be in unless I hate the hide used.

When Fok reports back there might be some better options(and I might swing back into camp)

 

Crust leather - is the hide after it has been tanned but has not had any finishing applied to it.  St. Crispins uses it alot(crust leather not CXL) as the canvas to apply dye and staining to customize their colors exactly as they want them, it ages really nicely with a nice worn in, refined look.

 

Edited for clarity and syntax

Right on, just came across some pics of the Crust CXL in natural light, and I think it might well be our substitute leather for the Millwright boot.  It seems to have a nice slightly matte finish, very much like the version of Icy Mocha CXL in the inspiration boot pics.  It is a bit lighter of course, but by all accounts will darken up quickly.  Check it out:
