I caved during the Black Friday sale and bought the rough-out trenches only a month after getting the brown ones. Still had my size, so they should be coming later this week.
For those of you who are getting or already have the rough-outs, does anyone plan to use dubbin on them? If so, what would you use? Sno-seal? I see that Saphir also makes dubbin. (http://www.hangerproject.com/saphir-dubbin-waterproofing-polish.html/) I found this site and their process significantly darkens the boot (Even before they apply polish, which I definitely would not do). (http://www.90thidpg.us/Equipment/Projects/Dubbing/index.html) Any other opinions on this? Do you think it ruins the boots by not leaving them as they are naturally?
I might have my sizing off, but I take the same size in the Trench and Alden Indy boot. 11.5d. But then I upsize on the handsewn to 12d in Ranger Moc, but 11.5d in penny loafer. I prefer my heel to be super snug, and this provides no heel slip and a good fit thru out normally.
I'm curious what size I should go with on the Trail Oxfords. I'm a 10 in vans, 10.5 in new balance, and a 10.5-11 in Nikes/Jays. I also have some Danner Mountain trails in a 10 EE if that helps..
I'm thinking to go with a 10 but can anyone weigh in on how much they stretch?
^and what everyone wants to know…Brian's got this on…buttons on shoulder:
10 sounds right, but others who have some of the other shoes you have may be able to compare
Fooleo, did you end up ordering the Trail Oxfords? My feet have grown out of my dress shoes, and the only shoes I can compare anything to are my Nikes. I wear a 10 in Nikes and want to know if I should get a 10 in the Camp Boot for use with thick socks.
They are the Natty's, might be thrown off by the laces. The leather ones snapped and got a little short, I should order some new ones, but I am waiting on the roughout's to see which laces I go with on those. Needless to say I will not be buying anything for a while!
