    Got two questions regarding the oscar last boot MTO
    Is cognac shell more like cigar or saddle?
    This boot as sleek as Peal Boot or Lindrick?
    Thanks

    1. There is a pic of the boot we´re doing higher up in this thread.

    2. Don´t know because i don´t own a Lindrick or Peal boot. Look at the pic of this boot and then google the others and compare yourself.

    When you get those details I'll make a decision, take a tentative yes for now?

    Yeah you can, that's the beauty of MTO. Any size you want and since the last fits a touch wide, it'll be perfect for you

    street wear & denim as opposed to "mens clothing"

    calikid, i think what you did made sense. save time on mto. i wish they had my size in that color.

    I also see what he did, but I think the natural welt was a tad much, over say, a light brown or antique type found on Aldens. Something darker would have preserved versatility in the boot, but the boot still serves a good, albeit more casual, purpose.

    Regardless, I like it.

    Not entirely sold on the high boot vs slightly-lower-than-high boot, other than that, I like.

    Wonder what it would look like with a 270 welt vs the 360.
