For participants in on #4 I would ask to keep brogueing. Its more of a casual look where a boot without brogueing would be more dressy. I think keeping it the way it is would be best in my opinion but its not a super duper deal breaker but I just want people to consider.

I'm open to keeping the brogueing if that's the consensus.  I'm more preoccupied with the boot being Cognac shell--that is a deal breaker for me.  Speaking of which, Steve now indicates Saddle shell for the boots.  I thought it was being determined whether they'd be Cognac or Saddle.  Are folks open to the boot being Cognac?

I'd also prefer dark cognac for the boot. I'd also prefer no broguing. Have the details on the sole and welt been decided?

Not sure.  My vote is for a double dainite sole.  What were you thinking?

Just got the word back from Betty!

 

For the 973 Boot in Rain Last, They can do as is with brogueing, or clean stitch lines as well. I am open go with the majority vote :)

 

Same for shell choice, I thought the general consensus was for Saddle shell? If not we can certainly change it to Dark Cognac.

Thats awesome news Steve. I still think that we should leave brogueing as it will be more of a casual boot and doing a boot with a clean captoe will be more formal. As we are doing a boot with open lacings it is more casual and therefore having brogueing will complete the casual boot.

I want the boot, I prefer brogueing (not deal breaker), I prefer shell.

Dainite, double leather, york, lining color are options I am indifferent to.

Sounds great! many thanks Justin for confirming :)

Which shell do you prefer btw? Saddle? or Cognac? (or are you okay with both?)

I think cognac might be better IMO but I am ok with either. Maybe Steve can we have some comparison shots between the 2 colors

Sure thing! I think Cognac will be a nice rich color for the boots as well :)

 

cognac on the left, saddle on the right!

Cognac will be stunning. My money is for cognac.
post #868 of 2910

I had expressed interest in the plain toe blucher.  I will participate with saddle shell and double leather sole.  I am sure the cognac will look great, but I do not have a need for the shoe in cognac.

I have expressed interest in these PTBs, and I am for cognac with double leather soles. Having a 'bulky' shoe in a lighter color like saddle makes no sense to me; the way I see it, light, playful colors should be used for shoes that are ornate (e.g. AE strand), elegant (e.g. single leather sole wholecuts), or unique (e.g. 2-eyelet derbies above).

Sorry I think theres been some confusion (my fault for posting PTB pictures)....I think Justin meant Cognac Shell for the 973 boots below

 

 

and Yes, the PTBs are currently for Cognac Shell at this point (3 confirmed and 1 interested at this point) sorry about that aldenwear :(
