Can anyone recommend a good pair of casual boots (with jeans) with rubber soles? A majority of my shoes have leather soles and don't cope with the rain... Something like a Red Wing maybe? Thanks in advance.

What about the RM Williams dynamic flex comfort craftsman?

Any one here wear a bulky knit, light grey slacks and the GbGhiKmnBhJjJmMnJuJFuckingAwesomestShoesIHaveEverSeenInPerson? They where burgundy or oxblood full brogues. Kinda suspecting it was Hoo-man who was here for a while then went back to FNB as they seem to be his kind of shoes, hardy, well worn and 'gunboatey.'

Anyway......return back to normal convo guys; heading to Paceman thingo sometime this weekend hopefully thank Andrew for making my favourite pair of jeans ever.

JM/ HC have you check the orientation is correct for the way you want it in the metadata? Although you really shouldn't be rotating JPEGs if you can avoid it anyway.

GN, i do have a pair of them, was looking for more of a 'boot'...

Speaking of... my new boots arrived today. Very happy with them; I must say I had my doubts at times but the final results are pretty good IMO. I'll take some photos and do a bit of a write up over the weekend if there is interest here.

(Still) Interested. As an aside my FS029 have held up well.

Nice quote. I'd not really thought of it that way, but you are right.

I suspect he's referring to the one who plays guitar for a living.

Loake 1880 Bedale. Goodyear storm welted rubber sole. I just bought a pair in dark brown (second from front in photo below) from Beggarman Thief. Beautiful leather. You can also get them online from Loake direct.

 

Be careful of sizing though - Loakes tend to wear large.

Think this depends on how the image is saved.. Preview it in something like Picasa and then flip it and save

Romp, you mentioned a new PJ HQ in Windsor. Is that a relocation of the South Melbourne one?

while doing some googling understanding differences between the 360degree welt as opposed to the traditional GY welt, i stumbled across this site pretty cool i thought: http://shoesandcraft.com/2012/12/01/miniature-shoes/#more-4370

also a great video showing a cobbler replace a old welt with a new one, really makes me love and appreciate all my GY shoes even more understanding what type of steps and process that are completed to finish a pair of shoes.

and here is a good video on loake shoes manufacturing process (i would assume the 1880 line are made)
