George- You need to get Jcrew to pick up your collection. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

The product needs to take over the world.

Does anybody recognize that insole...BAM...Oak Street for Thom Browne?! The black is by far the best out of the lost. Well done George.

just my opinion, but I think all of those are hideous.  also, no mention of oak street being involved.

The construction details don't look like OSB to my eye. 2 eyelet bluchers, and the horizontal stitching on the heels just don't fit the bill.

Just received my Trench Boots in the mail today and took them for a stroll and the insole in my right boots is coming up and moving when I walk. Is this supposed to happen or is it a mistake? Or can it be fixed at home?

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

But man are they some killer looking boots!!!

My understanding of Goodyear-welted shoe construction is that the actual insole is stitched to the welt of the shoe. I think this is isn't the actual insole.

That's correct.  The insole is not removable.  You are seeing the sock-liner lifting up.  It can simply be stuck back down by any competent cobbler or even by you if you are ok with doing it.

Anyone know if any other shops, aside from Context are carrying the black Trench boots?... preferably with a captoe? If not, might they be coming out in the future? Please let these be coming out in the future...

A little bit of barge cement should set you straight.

Context (in Madison, WI) still has one pair left, in a size 7.

So, the OSB Trench and the Alden 403/405 cost roughly the same. Which would one chose, and why? I'm interested in versatility, durability, and comfort for lots of walking.
