    Oh, of course you meant that :embar:

    I bought them on ebay. White's sells pairs there that I assume are ordered but not picked up for one reason or other under the username whitesriver. I paid about retail but no wait time and shipped direct from White's.

    Hey guys, I picked up a pair of Hathorn Explorer Plain-Toe Packers for a decent price awhile back and from what I understand they cannot be rebuilt, which is fine because I only wear them casually. I don't see why they couldn't be re-soled when the time comes though, can anyone confirm?

    Ah, yeah. I've been watching there too, but there's only been one pair my size and I didn't like the makeup. You found some good ones, congrats!

    Is there a synopsis somewhere of all the leather options?

    Bull vs. Water Buffalo vs. ...

    So many options...

    Wow, are these double leather soles with reduced height heel? Personally, I like the proportions...

    Hi blaster, was it you who asked this on the IH forum as well? The French Calf is a thinner leather and you need to have it lined, a for wear and tear, yet to find out but they are suppose to age beautifully. Here's a pair on a SD last on a smoke jumper/ farmer rancher aesthetic: http://www.eastwestapparel.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&path=40&product_id=103

    Cheers.

    Jamie.

    Any ideas how I can rough up my boots in a short space of time? Especially the suedes? Would putting water on them, and dragging them through mud and sand give them a rough look quickly? Sort of like breaking in denim quickly? Any ideas?
