    I took my brother-in-law who was visiting to Rocketbuster a couple of years ago. It's a hole in the wall. We met the owner (or the wife of the owner). She showed us around. Pretty amazing work they do there. Some pretty famous folks have had boots made there.

    I moved to El Paso from the Bay Area. Still miss the Bay Area.

    Hah It's more of a black selvedge chino.
    I always thought a deep burgundy or ox blood would go well with both Black and Indigo. But I find AE's ox blood a little too red. Does anyone know of a more toned down burgundy/ox blood boot?

    +1 to dark oxblood/burgundy.
    Textured black boots (scotchgrain or other imprinted calf etc) might also work.

    No interest, but these should turn out real nice.

    As far as black denim I'd concerned I've always found it far inferior to indigo denim in all situations but one.

    I'm an avid Chelsea fans and the royal blue kit looks much better with black than it does with indigo.

    If I can find boots for decent boots for maybe 250 a piece I'll get a black pair and a walnut/brown pair.

    But oh my Lord those Mahogany boots look like they would perfect <3
