    Hi Ben and co, thinner leathers will come lined in the vamp, and nearly all thinner leathers are the more expensive ones so you are paying for lining at the same time. Thicker leathers do not cone lined in the vamp unless you ask for it. Put your hand inside an unlined CXL and you should feel it. Early Happy New Year to all. Was thinking I might try and ween myself off of expensive boots this coming year....we all know how that will turn out!

    Gentlemen:

    I've ordered a new White's boot in natural chromexcel.

    Question from this newbie is this: What belt colors can I get away with?. Currently, I own the usual blacks, browns and burgundy varieties. Do I need to buy some new belts?

    Thanks,

    Mb

    There's a seller on Etsy called One Star Leather Goods who sells a variety of chromexcel items, and among them are custom natural CXL belts for only $60. My belt matches my boots perfectly, and if you're going to pony up $500 for a pair of boots you can throw in a few extra to complete the look. Any other color belts are obvious non-matches, and when you receive the boots you'll see what I mean.

    Belts made of the same leather as your boots are too matchy-matchy IMO. I say get a natural veg tanned belt that will evo along with your boots, but still look slightly different...

    Then again i wear my natty veg tanned belt by Unlucky with black boots and leather jackets all the time! Talk about fashion faux pas :p

    My dark brown and black cherry (toe cap and back part) in SD, although the colors are pretty much indistinguishable unfortunately.

    diazawaguy,

    Who cares if those two leather colors look similar, those boots look great!!!! :happy: Seriously though, they are a nice-looking pair of boots.

    I love the white laces! I'd have them brown from dirt or stained indigo in a week. They look excellent with those boots. :thumbs-up:

    Black cherry water buffalo for the toe cap as well as rear part, and dark brown for the front. Apart from that much as you can see with the 700 sole I think it's called and pretty much standard otherwise. Single celastic toe.

    Oh, and serious amounts of TLC and sapphire neutral cream! Too much many might argue though! But hey, a SD should be dressy,no!?

    My remake SDs came in today; perfect fit!!!

    My initial order was 10D these are 9.5E. Size down and out seems to be my rule of thumb for the #55 last.

    Ricky, essentially yes. My initial pair were only worn indoors for a few hours. Long enough for me to realize they were too big. The guys at Bakers are first rate. I said, "I'm worried on the fit for these, and just wanted your advice before I wear them outdoors". We had a few lengthy phone conversations, and ended up speculating on the correct size. I then sent them back, and they ordered the second pair at the next size down and a width out (plus addition of leather lining). Bingo, bango, bongo

    Hi, does anyone have a picture of the below makeup?

    Leather: Natural Chrome Excel
    Last: Standard
    Hardware: Antique eyes and hooks
    Midsole: Double leather midsole
    Outsole: vibram 430
    Heel: Standard heel, lowered 1/4in
    Lining (no)
    Edge Stain: Natural
    Sole Stitching: Single Row, Close Trim
    Toe Cap: None
    Toe Box: non celastic
    Pull Loops: No

    I am trying to see if the soles are going to be too thick, and if the non celastic and sole combo would be too streamlined shoe with a big clunky sole.
