Was surprised to see action on this thread, since I just got back from MOTOR
. Thanks for the pics Dave! Boots look fantastic. Natural cxl engineers are perhaps the perfect boots for denim. And thanks for the comparison. Interesting to hear that they are thicker and tougher to break in than the RRL. The cxl on the MOTO engineers has gotta be way thicker than that of Aldens. Good to hear the sizing seems to be working better.
I stopped by MOTOR today to check out their denim. I've got a pair of Lofgren Engineers coming my way (MOTOR's being too small for me) and I'm looking for some nice wider straight leg denim to pair up with them. I particularly like their "buckle back" model, with cinch back, suspender buttons and a loose fit. I also very much like their "M" arcs. Jean is based on vintage 1933 Levi's. Denim from Okayama, and made at the same factory as Warehouse (perhaps via Warehouse, not sure bout that).
Size 34 fit great. Except for the length. Just a little short. Would work, but probably not be able to cuff. Unfortunate because I'd very much like to sport some cuffs with the engineers. For anyone interested, they also have this in a trimmer 66 cut.
Also had them swap out the stock ball and chain on the chest pocket zipper of my new leather jacket for a matching piece of deerskin with a small silver "concho" on it. All I can say is they hooked me up! And it looks great!Edited by Kashiwa - 11/18/12 at 3:35am
