SS15 Calf Reverse ST3:

the shaft and ankle are wider than what I'm used to though, not the best for the shrink wrapped jeans!

Seems to be that he is moving entirely away from permanent folds on the ST3. The texture looks good on these, it is just a way different final shape than mine because of the lack of folding and forward stance of the boot. It must just only work with some leathers/treatments to crank them forward like that creating permafoldsTM

 

having a wide shaft usually does cause problems with your shrink wrapped jeans :rimshot:

I saw those in person a year ago in Paris,

the Master had a huge (garbage) bag of them in various states of finished and unfinished construction and gave us a viewing of them at LEB's showroom

 

They are some of the best made boots around, just personally at little too neat and clean for my personal taste.........

 

I still am Stuck on old Carpe Diem footwear with nothing new moving me forward or away from them, even though some of the newer Augusta stuff I am tempted to acquire

Just gotta wear them hard enough they aren't so neat and clean anymore smile.gif
I saw a pair yesterday on the train, I think the original run from a couple years ago, looked fantastic.

True True

but at those prices they are kinda hard to swallow for a family man like me........LOL
maybe if I was obsessed about them i'd compromise my principles.

Yea Ziggy had one he was wearing for a while and they did look great. I am still Carpe Obsessed though.

Everyone needs at least one pair of S23's. Easy to wear and goes with everything.
post #19373 of 22279

they are the most versatile boot I have ever owned,

i can wear with a suit, with shorts, cropped pants, jeans whatever.

I need another pair soon.

post #19374 of 22279
Maybe the reg non reverse version would work with a suit but I wouldn't do it. I imagine you don't mean a classic men's suit and are referring to something artisanal which can work but a sleek suit needs a sleek classic shoe/boot.

I think any of single sole/non lifted Cdiem models could work well with suits. (S45/S21/S24/S23/S43/S40/S49).



middle & left






@alexandertg whip out that navy derby, is it on a single sole?

Pretty sure.

Edit: thanks to @jcp9 for selling them to me (brand new) at a good price when I was not so up on what they were. smile.gif

I'd have kept them if they weren't a size too big; just an incredible pair. glad they went to a loving home

post #19378 of 22279
Yea some of those can work.
post #19379 of 22279

When I said with a suit i was speaking from experience

I have worn mine with everything possible and it works

 

well mine (well the one of many I ended up keeping) was a soft calf leather with a whitish tint to the black.
I had also a cap toed derby that i sold and regretted, along with a black pair that was too small for me

 

the side zips also works well with suits/ dress pants too, but I much prefer laced boots in carpe diem

post #19380 of 22279
What products to people use on Guidi leather? I have a pair of brown back-zips that are showing a little wear and I'd like to clean them up without flattening out any of the variations or depth in the color of the leather.
