    Been short of pics here recently...
    These are taken in standard incandescent lighting so color is a bit off, but here are the farmer ranchers I bought from White's eBay store.

    I saved up some money by eating just roman noodles for 6 months and sent for some leather samples in order to order a nice pair of Whites Smoke Jumpers. This of course was after carefully figuring where they would fit in with my other 2 pairs of shoes in rotation. [​IMG] I did ruin one pair (see below) but must wear them until I save u some more.[​IMG]

    Here are couple of SC color leather samples, from a Whites' retailer, for custom ordering a pair of boots.

    The samples are placed on top of (yup you guys were right) wrinkled up (from using Huberds shoe grease) leather loafers. [​IMG]Cherry and Burgundy color samples.

    [​IMG]

    I thought the loafers were perfectly smooth until I messed them up.

    [​IMG]

    You think heating them up and drying them real good will flatten out the leather? [​IMG]

    Call Wesco tell them you would like to buy a set of leather laces for your 16 inch high line mans boots, you will get a pair that equals 2 pairs for price on one pair (cut one lace in half) and just might get them free.

    Hey lina

    "I feel like if you don't own a $2000 pair of Edward Snowden boots and a $10,000 Bergdahl watch that you don't belong."

    Who wears that cheap of a watch that reads this thread? shame on them....[​IMG]

    Placed my order back in may, I hoping I'm at the halfway point.
    Here are the specs
    Retro Oxford by White's Boots
    Item No: 154
    Hardware: All Brass Eyes
    Leather: Natural Chrome Excel by Horween
    Size - Length: 8
    Sole: Double Leather
    Toe Cap: No Thanks
    No Celastic
    Size - Width: D (medium)
    Sole Trim: Close Trim
    Heel Base: 90 Degree Blocked off Heel (Traveler) 1/4" lower
    I almost went (was a really close call) with the viberg/styleforum make up but I really love the way the retro oxfords look and I love the way the white's fit my foot.
    I'll post up some photos when they arrive

    Don't worry the poster will be scheduled for the next firing squad, for ignoring the forums' strict ordering guidelines. [​IMG]

    He just has to realize he is gonna look completely normal wearing them.[​IMG]

    PS I remembered another couple of reasons to treat leather soles and heels; This morning while walking through the Hospital parking lot I stept on a large piece of gum, bummer, I reached down and it rolled right off my treated leather sole.. I offered it back to the guy,,, (ahh might upset some of the people here if I continue so i will truncate)...also treating leather soles and heals also eliminates lots of shoe/boot creaks.

    Order placed yesterday. Mostly standard Smokejumper but with composite toe in smooth brown. A real boot for work, I'm going to wear them all day except jumping into mud pit[​IMG].

    -My order placed thru Bakershoe, can I check my order progress like gregornz?
    -Due to dust, dirt, cement... I clean my nubuck boot with leather cleaner and conditioner for waterproofness very often. Should I do this with the White or just wiping with damp cloth?
