Yeah, I love those guys, great shop. I work as a butcher at the shop around the corner, its great being able to support my local shops and my homestate of Maine all in one go! I'm hoping they pick up some of the trench oxford options when they become more widely available. Those brown leather soled ones I've seen around are amazing.

Hey guys, does anyone know of anywhere in NYC selling the cordovan loafers? I know HW Carter was, but since they switched to Gentry, I'm not sure if their inventory changed. I'm only here for a few days and would love to go check them out (and inevitably buy them). Thanks for any help.

I have had my Oakstreet natural chrome XL trench boots for a few weeks now. I have worn them almost every day. They are great boots. The leather is exceptional. They are wearing very nicely and already in the patina is amazing. I decided to change out the leather laces in Lou of some black flat wax laces and really like the pop of them. I would highly recommend these to anyone. I plan on getting some of their camp mocks when spring summer rolls around. George and Tony have been great![IMG][IMG]

BTW-I worked in the building/construction industry and beat my footwear to death! These seem to have solid construction and will be able to hold up.

Hey - thank you for wanting to get in a pair of the cordovan loafers! Definitely call HW Carter/Gentry - they very well may still have some. Also, send tony at oakstreetbootmakers dot com an email - I believe Graham Fowler in Manhattan MIGHT have cordovan loafers as well

I have an extra pair of cordovan loafers in 9 and 9.5. PM me...

quick question... i've had my trail oxfords for a few months ( bought them maybe in February) but have only worn them maybe a few dozen times. I recently took them on vacation and have been walking a lot in them since they are really comfortable and I noticed a scratch/crack in the leather right at the crease in the toe where my ball of my foot is. it's not deep but it is certaily past the top layer of smooth navy. due to its location, I was worried the leather had somehow dried out and cracked even with minimal wearing. its not been treated but its never been abused either. am I just being paranoid about a minor defect? id be happier thinking its just how the leather always was rather than ii messed it up...

Leather shouldn't be that dry after only a couple months

And it's impossible for CXL to dry out. Oak Streets worldwide have been worn in trying conditions! You could always send us a photo tony at oakstreetbootmakers dot com

I've got some spots from a drink that splashed on my boot, any ideas how to get them out? I've already tried a bit of vinegar.

no disrespect, but from that pic, it seems super minimal..

 

try a little venetian or renovateur if you have some, it might clear it up..

 

otherwise, chalk it up to the game and just wear them as you would and let them 'patina' with however you would wear them

Little spot on your boots. They're boots! What would your grandather say?

Email sent. I'm sure that I am being overly paranoid about it, but I really do appreciate you guys looking. Thanks!

 

Edit: Wonderfully quick response from Tony put me at ease. I really do appreciate such fast answers to what may be really simple/silly questions. Thanks!

Also, my Trenches arrived. Tim email-sized me spot on. Barely snug, obscenely comfortable, and even more awesome looking than I thought from all these pictures.
