I am looking into buying the trench boot cap and I was reading this thread that they are TSS. Normally I wear size 8.5-9 but when I tried on the Wolverine 1000 Mile boots in size 8, they were too big.I was not able to try on the 7.5 because no store carries that size but I assume they will fit.
 
 What size should I go with trench boot then? 

If 8.5/9 is your brannock size, the 1k miles should fit fine.  Its difficult if you tell us you wear those size in Jordan or Vans.

Agreed, looks good 👌. I'd post pics of mine but it looks pretty much the same as yours except with leather laces

For those of you that have the Natty CXL Captoe Boot how is it compared to the Alden Captoe Boot Natty CXL?
post #2184 of 3017

The rough outs look great, but boy I'd really have a hard time convincing myself that denim stains on brand new boots looked good, Although on the plus side it would really make me not to worried about something like using dubbin or oiling them with Obneuafs darkening them.

 

Not like you can see that except for when you wear them without pants anyways

 

Are the lines across the back where you loop them around your ankle because you don't lace them up all the way? I bet they get a real intresting look after a couple moths if something as light as laces mark them up like that.

 

Nice Boots

I bought these with the intention of them being a rough wear boot. I baby many other shoes, but these will not be babied. The laces are wrapped around the back, they are not marked because of that, it has just pressed the nap down. All I would need to do would be to brush them a little and it would pull that back up. I also believe that if I got tired of the blue I could use a suede "eraser" for lack of a better term and the blue would be lightened for sure, but I don't foresee doing that anytime soon.

I know what you mean about staining some new boots.  I really love these boots but when I first wore them, they really looked way too pristine and "new" to me.  I also posted pics a while back of my roughouts with significant indigo stains after only a couple of wears with some fairly new raw denim. And I much prefer the lived-in look of the roughouts now and I'm confident they'll look even better with more wear.

I have the Nat CXL Trench boot (but plain toe not captoe) and also the Leffot/Alden Nat CXL PCT boot.  J.Crew also has a Nat CXL PCT boot, that's very similar.  Here are a few differences that come to mind:

 

-  The CXL leather of the Trench boot is much thicker than the Aldens.  Much more substantial.

-  The Trench boot is unlined except for the vamp.  My Leffot/Alden boots are fully lined.

-  The Elston last of the Trench boot vs. the Barrie last of the Aldens --- I take a D width in both and the Elston last has significantly more toe box room than the Barrie.  It's much wider than the Barrie of the same width.  Don't have any Trubalance boots (anymore) so can't compare to that last.

-  Both boots are on a similar "waterlock" type single leather sole.

-  Because of the different lasts, I think the OSB boots look much more like what I think a service boot should look like.  The Aldens are sleeker.  Especially the Leffot/Alden boots, which have a flat 270-welt; these features make these boots look the sleekest of any of my Barrie-lasted boots.

 

They are both very nice boots and different enough to justify owning both!

In preparation for spring and summer I just ordered my first pair of Oakstreet Bootmaker shoes. I went with the Brown Trail Oxford. I can't wait to get them.

You won't be disappointed.  I own a pair in natural cxl, and they're just fantastic.

I figured after trying a few from Rancourt and 1 from Qouddy, it was about time to try one from Oakstreet Bootmakers.
