They can arrange for non-stock sizes in items. Probably not THAT worth it... but just sayin'. Your mention of Gustins does make want to get a pair of mine out. I've been very pleased with their jeans.

Absolutely. You bet. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Also btw, I think the photo shows some of the nice details: e.g., the burnishing on the broguing on the crust leather (which is very nicely finished itself...) and the cool stratigraphy of the sole layers.

Stratigraphy!? Good Saturday word! Thinking of my Gustin downtown browns for my Buday christening.

Waxing a little poetic there. 😀

The multicolored edge treatment is new to me, and quite to my liking.

Edit: And downtown brown and Buday sounds like the pairing to me.

There is that which we know we like and that which we know we don't like yet so much that we do not know we like.

Ah, the Tao of Rumsfeld as applied to aesthetics. Lol.

Pissing it down. Shell Budapester time!

Look beautiful.

And so how did it go and how does the fit feel?

Do I understand "pissing it down" correctly as a variant of the Queen's English for "raining? Looks as if it might have been raining from the photo... smile.gif

It had briefly stopped after pouring down constantly for two days! Couldn't have the commonwealth games tourists thinking it was sunny ALL the time! The soles were a bit slippy but I expect they'll fuzz up. The fit is actually really good; I think my feet must've grown! Glad I didn't put those tongue pads in

Those whiskey boots are calling my name....

Do it. Become a Buday buddy.

Wow that's awful... No stopping an iGent from coining terrible catch phrases.

I'm wondering if I should sell a pair of Cigar shell Aldens to get into those tobacco brown Buday derbies.
post #56 of 102
Do it! The way Alden's are selling just now you could probably cover the total cost from the sale and I think the Buday are far better than my Alden.

Murl; I'm with you on those whisky boots tho I might stick with the derby.

I'll wear them sober to work tomorrow and report how that goes

You are right.

I'm going to list the Aldens. The last isn't really the best for my foot anyway. I don't figure to get the whole $899 for the Buday, and of course it is still an open question as to whether the Buday's will fit. But what the heck.

I'm debating between a couple pairs of boots/shoes at the moment. The Buday are pretty pricey, but they look like they are built like a tank. Just when I thought I narrowed my choices down....

Don't you have a pair already?
Fwiw my trubalance boots in 8.5b/d are a little short so Im most likely a 9 in that which I think would fit pretty similarly to the UK8 Buday 39 last

They are undoubtedly expensive. I think they are well built and honestly, that's not a bad price for shell boots. if you can even get anyone to sell you whiskey shell boots.

But I can see choosing something at a lower price point, certainly.

Yup. Different lasts though. Ed seems to think that there's a reasonable expectation that the derbies will fit. I'd have to try them on to be sure.

Have to get myself organized to list some Aldens and see what I can net. Trying to be fairly net expenditure neutral. And also need space to actually put the shoes in the old house.
