I'm always amazed at how your Trench boots look.  Not that I don't like mine, but I wish they would look more like yours.  Maybe I need to wear them more.  I love the way yours looked lived in.

 

What do you treat them with, if anything?

They have a few coats of LP and I brushed the crap out of them before taking the pictures this afternoon. CXL takes to brushing almost as well as shell. I use a big horsehair brush that's almost 20 yrs old so it's super soft. The combination of previously applied LP wax, chrome tanned leather with all its ingrained oils and a good amount of brushing really helps them look their best.

Looks like the toe has flattened quite a bit as well?

 

Battered-but-cared-for always looks best.

Gentleman,
Woodlands in Portland just released this very excited exclusive and quantities are LOW
We used natural chromexcel for the entire boot. The roughout is actually reversed natural chromexcel with a finished and buffed back. One of the most exciting boots for fall to really change up your footwear game

George, these look great! nice work. The roughout looks a lot like snuff suede. Is it lighter in person or pretty similar in color?

post #1525 of 2970
^ I've seen these in person. They look amazing. I'd say the rough out is a little lighter IRL than snuff--but darker than sand--if that helps.

What I WANT BAD is that Woodlands boot, but on a dainite sole. Anyone? Anyone? That's my grail...and I don't ever use that term.

I can't seem to find any fit pics with the Black Trenches. Does anyone have one?

Howdy everyone,

Just had a quick question about possible stockists in the NYC area for the Trench Boots. They look absolutely fabulous but for over $400 I just need to feel how these fit and look on me in person before I buy. It is a very tough choice because the Alden store in Manhattan allows me to try the Indy Boot on and see it in person and I'm just a bit torn I guess since I like both styles.

Does anybody know if there is anywhere in the NYC area where I could try on the Trench Boots in person at a store? If not I may take my chances ordering them but like I said for $400 + I'd love to see them on my feet first.
Thanks
jm

so i got my trench boots today and they are even more awesome than i imagined.  amazing boots....but i'm not sure if i got the right size :/

 

i wear a size 8 in clarks desert boots, size 9 in nike flyknits, 9 in most other shoes.

my foot measures a 9 right on the money in the brannock device.  

 

i got a size 9 in the trench boots based off all that and what it says on the website.  however, the website also says they recommend a snug fit as the leather will stretch to fit your foot.  i wouldn't exactly classify my fit as snug...but its definitely not loose.  when i lace the boots up i'm not sliding aroun at all but i'm also trying to not keep them on and wear them in case i have to send them back.  from pressing down on my toes, i have just over a thumbs width from my big toe to the front of the boot...granted that whole distance isn't exactly usable due to the radius at the front of the boot...but still...not quite snug.  i have a bit of room on the sides of my foot as well but i'm used to that with my narrow feet.

 

anybody want to offer some input?  i called and left a message with oak street but i guess they are closed for the night already.  i'm really excited...but also kinda nervous as these boots are something i want to keep for a very very veryyyyyyy long time and i need to make sure i got the fit right off the bat.  thanks.

Dude, I'd go a half size down. But that's just me
