    I think they'd like to see some non-SZ approved brands here too.

    Trying to think of some that pass the grade.

    some of the streetwear-y Vass might make it. No balmoral boots though, right? Could they be worn in streetwear fits?

    I might just post a whole bunch of stuff i find in MC that's marginally streetwear. Goyser welts etc.

    Yeah, but i tried to post ones i could easily see worn in a streetwear fit. the longwings and the chukkas could be worn with jeans pretty easily. The soles are nice and chunky and the lasts aren't those over the top chisel shapes.

    the suede austerity brogues wouldn't look good with jeans but could be worn with pants in a still streetwear look.

    But yeah, pushing the boundaries i guess.


    Apart from the beautiful Attachment backzips and a couple of the Carpe's, I can't really imagine any of the other boots in this thread being worn outside of one aesthetic. That's fine, but we could do with some more styles in here.

    The first chukkas I could see working. It's really the last of the others that pushes them out of the streetwear category. But yeah, the $700 limit is out of reach for even Alden and Tricker's and such that could be worn with a non goth-ninja fit.

    the first chukkas are on the F last i think, all the others are also on the F last except for the longwings, which are on the P2 which is chunkier and less sleek.

    It's mainly the low angle which makes them look elongated.

    Anyway, people wear Paul Smith and Margiela etc in streetwear fits and they're on way sleeker lasts. These are pretty chunky in comparison.

    I have nothing to contribute, but I just wanted to say thanks to eckblk for all the cool pictures and commentary - living vicariously through your boots is fun!

    Why did Augusta change it's name?

    Also, how does Marsell measure up to these other brands?

    Also, quality-wise, how would you guys rank most of these brands?

    CCP > Augusta > MA+ > Guidi > Marsell ???
    Also include non-shoemaker brands like Julius, Virdi-Anne, Devoa, etc...

    IMO & from my experience: Carpe Diem > CCP/Augusta > MA+ > Guidi *some one else that has more experience with CCP may want to chime in. *I'm only putting MA+ behind CCP/Augusta because of the lack of a good year welt, the pair I owned were blake stitched. I have heard this is changing on some models for A/W 2011-12. There is a 3300usd derby [​IMG] . I also hate putting Guidi at the bottom because they are such a good value. 2 pair of Guidi zip boots = 1 pair of Augusta [​IMG] The japanese brands are extremely well constructed riri zippers, some use Guidi leather nowadays, etc....- I'm guessing most come from the same factory? I've never handled Marsell but like some of their designs. Officine Creative, Buttero and F&B are all great alternatives IMO Not sure about Augusta- I've heard there was an issue with another company already using that name. Ask Curtis. [​IMG]

    Ahh, I didn't include Carpe since it's discontinued. How much did Carpe run? Pricing-wise, seems like:

    CCP - Starting at $????
    Augusta - starting at $2k
    MA+ - starting at $1,500
    Guidi - starting at $900


    I've handled F&B and the quality really isn't as impressive as I had hoped, some of their leather felt and looked plastic. I actually prefer some of JVs mainline over most F&B boots. I just thought it would be better in person.

    Not sure about Augusta- I've heard there was an issue with another company already using that name. Ask Curtis. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Maybe I will.

    Yeah guidi is by far the best value of the bunch at retail and on the secondary market and they offer so many styles, customization and all sorts of types of leather and color.

    <3 guidi. I think the only thing that makes me sad about them is that I've heard the soles wear down really quickly, but I vibram/rubber heel anyways so it's a pretty small concern.

    So would you highly recommend that? I've been thinking about it for my boots but I'm not sure if it is ideal.

    With new boots I personally like to wear them as is until the heel wears down a bit before I have them rubber heeled since they take a chunk off the heel off anyways.
