post #886 of 2979

I can't find the link now, but awhile back I came across a webpage with interviews with a bunch of the Maine shoemakers. there were dozens iirc, all working for different designer houses etc.

Hi George.

If i measure 8E on the Brannock, what size would you recommend I order a Trench boot?

I'd likely user an insole by the way, the orthopedic kind just over 1/8" thick. I can wear dress socks to compensate.

2) Can I order it in black? Saw that on Context as a collaboration model. Not listed on the site.

Many thanks!

Hey Sacafotos,
8.5 should be perfect for you
Black is currently a Context exclusive. Shoot me an email - george at oakstreetbootmakers dot com - we can talk about the black

Hey guys,
Our flagship store in Chicago (actually on Oak Street) - Independence - is having a 1 year anniversary party this Thursday. For any Chicagoans - head on over! I'll be hanging out as well!

Here's a link to the invitation!

Just discovered this thread.  The trench boot looks awesome.  Not sure about another addiction though...

I purchased the Trench Boot TTS (in correspondence to the Brannock device) and they turned out half-a-size too small (in fact, my feet still hurt from trying them on); I had to return it as I was not going to put any faith in the possibility that they may stretch. Perhaps I measured incorrectly.

In any case, they appear to be well-constructed and have fairly-low profile compared to other 'work boots'. Though I cannot say I spent much time with them as I immediately reshipped them to the retailer (Context).

I'll admit I'm getting more than a little camera happy with these Trench Boots and its only been a couple of weeks since the last set of images. I've been wearing them more than usual and decided to clean them up today while on a long conference call. They've already seen a coat of Obenauf HDLP so I just cleaned off the salt with a damp cloth and brushed them for a good 10-15 minutes. Amazing what a difference a good horsehair brush will have on their appearance.

 

I did pour on a bit more contrast this time around but they looked so damn nice in the fading light.

Beautiful! I think I know what my next boot purchase will be.  Still a few weeks wait though after ordering, right?  Did you use the HDLP after your previous set of shots?  Because these pics make the boots look darker.  Or is it just the contrast or lighting?  Nevertheless, awesome, and I can see why you want to keep snapping photos.

Yes I did add a coat a couple of weeks ago and have been wearing them almost daily as well. What really changed their appearance was a ton of brushing. That made a big difference but the images are much more contrast heavy than before.

Well, my 3-month (almost) moratorium on boot purchases just ended tonight.  I primarily blame #patrick_b and his photos of the Trench Boot-plain toe.  I got myself a pair, albeit in the same size as I wear in the Alden Barrie (primarily because I didn't want to wait 6 weeks).  The website and Tony advised TTS but some have posted here that they've gone with their Barrie size.  Here's hoping I don't have to exchange for a larger size and wait 6 weeks.  I just think these boots have just the right amount of sleekness balanced with the right amount of rugged work boot looks.  And I'm a big fan of nat CXL.

I hope one day that George decides to offer the Trench boot with a dainite sole, I'd be all over a pair. The pics from patrick_b show how stunning these boots will look with age.

I think that will work out perfect for you. I tried them up .5 from my Barrie size and they were too big

Is this in the pipeline or just dreaming? Dainite sole would elevate the trench to instakop for me.
