Hey Romp, glad to hear they turned out well. Get the brown suede oxford and the dub munk!
You know what... I think I will! Might vary the shade of brown though.
Oh my gawd!
That would be pretty cool! By the way, I just got these:
I like the purple inner lining!
Yes, I thought it was a nice touch - The Armoury did that with their Carmina double monks on the Inca and I thought it looked really good.
Just a heads-up for the Aussie guys.
I'm about to list 2 things in the Mens Classifieds sections. PM me if you are interested and want first-dibs.
1 X Howard Yount Trouser Size 30 (100% Wool, Mid-Gray Nailhead) - Never Worn, Still With Tags, Unfinished. $120AU.
1 X Vass U-Last Punch Cap Size 42.5 (Dark Brown Calf, Single JR Sole) - Worn Once, Trees Included. $450AU.
I am selling the pants, as they do not fit. I am selling the shoes, as Vass recently changed Lasts from what I hear, and these shoes are too big for me (despite being the size which I have ordered religiously for the last 3 years). They would suit someone who usually wears 9UK.
sweet boots. laces compliment the lining;
Oh, come on Gerry. Don't be so casual about it - "By the way, I got these.." Ha ha ha
Enjoy, mate! They are truly beautiful boots. Wear the f*ck out of them!
Guys, does anyone here have experience with Berensen Tailors on Flinders Lane (Melbourne) for alterations? I require several pairs of pants to be altered.
He is scared to admit his habit.....intervention time GN?
Just joking, I agreed with thebrownman
Is my jealously showing here....
you're welcome. certainly, it's a nice to have but not worth the hassle to send them around the world, imo. actually, you'd better wait for a recraft/resole for a better economical ratio.
you can also try to order the plates. the installement is not the biggest deal in the world. afaik, a cobbler has to order a full box, iirc 250 pairs. this is a barrier. also, the plates come in different sizes and different shoes require different sizes and shapes.
i would ask nick at b. nelson, if he can send you some.
That makes perfect sense. I'll just go with the standard metal toe taps for the time being then.
