Dr Martens, Yay/Nay? - Page 18
Guys, I have a similar pair of made in england Dr Martens pictured above that were bought 8-9 yrs ago. Mine is in brown suede and is pretty much unworn. Can I still get some use out of it? Any suggestion?.........I try pairing it with a rolled up oliver-colored pants and a flannel shirt which looks alright, but any better option out there?
You lot probably aren't interested having read your previous messages but here is a UK website I got some boots from a while back just in case you are interested. They are not leather but very good quality and made in the UK and look great (I think). They are expensive though. I have the Airseal Para Boot (Black).
I have just ordered some English made 1914's in Oxblood after much deliberation. Thanks for all your comments they helped me finally make up my fucking mind! Last time I wore DM's was at school, aged about 12 or 13! I know I had boots just can't remember if I had shoes too, they might have been cheap imitations.

Since the topic of stitch-staining came up, I thought I'd recall my experience.. The yellow stitching on my newest pair have gotten noticeably dirty-looking, as I've just polished all willy nilly. I decided to clean them up with liquid sandpaper (same stuff I use to remove layers of polish from shoes) and then masking taped over them for their recent polish. BOOT PORN:
stunning. liquid sandpaper? wut
