Also, I am torn between the brown and the navy.
Any suggestions?
Thanks guys.

No, it's the same model but in natural rather than brown. It's the same leather as these guys here.

You got it! Natural Chromexcel is the model we made exclusively for Independence in Chicago for the first run (few sizes around as of today). Natural Chromexcel is special because it is essentially the raw color of chromexcel before it goes through the tanning process - so you get a really beautiful leather with highs and lows - and of course, what people love most about natural chromexcel, is the patina that it develops

Not quite - we're a Chicago based shoe/boot company. Because we're a shoe/boot company and not just a store, we have retailers all around the world that sell our shoes - French Trotters in Paris, Journal Standard and United Arrows in Japan, Kafka in the UK, Imogene+Willie in Nashville, Dunderdon in NYC, etc etc etc.

However, I recently opened a mens retail clothing store in Chicago - on Oak Street - called Independence. Independence exclusively sells goods that are crafted in the USA, and of course, the store serves as the flagship Oak Street Bootmakers location. The shop is brand new - we opened last month - but Oak Street Bootmakers has obviously been around since before the shop =)

The shop carries Engineered Garments, Post Overalls, Imogene+Willie, Gitman, Velva Sheen, etc etc. We'll have our webshop up mid may:

I actually don't have a pair yet! They've been selling too well for me to take a pair for myself! Post photos when you get them. When did they ship?

Good luck with the store, George!.. Wish I lived a tad closer than Belgium to come visit... tongue.gif

One more picture of the blue trail oxfords. Six days old:

Previous post here. Now worn with a chunkier wool sock, and I'm still glad I sized down from my normal 10.5 to a 10.

I think they're slated to arrive today, but I'm away until Friday. I'll definitely post some pictures on the weekend.

Nice!

This is getting me thinking....we need a promotion for StyleForum members! Should we institute free shipping, should we do a collab shoe?? What are you guys interested in?

This could be fun nod[1].gif
post #74 of 3007

I'd definitely be interested in a collab shoe, but I have no idea what to suggest...

maybe a brown suede chukka... or a trail oxford with a double leather sole?
