    Those are nice. I saw some at Saks which allows you to special order Weston now. Very tempting.

    Why not? Those were one of the greatest scores of all time. I am still jealous, and it has been what, five years?

    what are the major differences between the RM Williams Craftsman french veal calf vs. yearling?
    is it just quality of leather?
    the yearling seems to offer more color choices.

    Those are nice. I really like the ones on the far right. The shape of the middle ones looks rather clumsy compared to how sleek the other two are. http://www.hotboots.com/pix538.html I'm lusting over these designed by Tom Ford for YSL ... but the price is too much for me. [​IMG]

    Not the best lighting but here are mine... the army boots are Prada, as are the shorter ankle boots, and the other ones are goat skin Miu Miu!

    I love them ... just too expensive.

    High heels were originally for men. Did you know that? Their decerase in poopularity among men is a relatively recent occurence.

    Irregardless, they dont look good, a quasi cuban heel with too much height...not a good look.
    The rest of the boot looks nice though.

    A long time ago, I heard style was subjective! I wonder if this still holds true today ...

    Once I get a camera and post what I look like, you'll understand why they fit in with me.

    Style is subjective, but some things just look ridiculous: think of that hardhat beer holder thing Philadelphia Eagles fans wear. Unless you are two-feet tall, you'll look silly in those boots.

    Uncontrol, I saw the Johnny boots in YSL today and really liked them, too high for me but I could definitely imagine a skinny Dior goth type wearing them (what I'd secretly love to be). Did you see the similar ones with a pointier toe and lower heel? I think they'd be a bit more wearable. Will you get them? Tom.

    I've never seen them! Alas, those boots are far, far out of my price range ... maybe when I am older ...
