Gratuitous shot featuring Lofgren olive combats. They are possibly my closet favorite or certainly the most comfortable. Freenote Lambert stripe shirt and Oni 20oz secret denim

Nice! I am looking at the Lofgren M43 boots myself. I like Clinch's construction, however for the price of the Yaeger I can get multiple Lofgren :)

Additionally I am looking at the Jodphur though that heel is too high IMO +5mm more than the Clinch engineers. They'd be a cool boot with a lower heel IMO.

Any others similar to it? (off Japanese boot topic: RM Williams Stockman...)

The Lofgren M-43s are like slippers. So comfortable and they look great too. I love them.

Quick question for Rolling Dub Trio owners, how is sizing vs Viberg and Alden (Barrie/Trubalance)? Thanks!
another data point for ya...i'd say they compare well to viberg 2030/110 and alden trublance...but probably on the roomier side of that spectrum. i tried to get good data on how to size my recent Coupens and ended up with a size way too large. the bad thing was that i had the iScan of my foot from a red wing store and the size that RDT recommended based on that scan is a full 2 or 3 complete sizes larger than what is a perfect fit for me.

good info. So if I’m Viberg 11, take 11 in RDT?

I know this isn't a B/S/T thread, but I have a pair of 7D Lofgren x S&S Shadow Shell Combat Boots I'm looking to move. Unfortunately they're a half size too small for me and have not budged a millimeter in the toe box. Album here. Retailed $1375, looking for $1200 shipped.

I think these are almost fully broken in with the short walks I've been doing in them since I don't get outside too much these days. They keep getting better with each wear.

I just ordered a Jodhpur from Joe Works. You might want to check them out. I also agree on the Clinch Jodhpurs, that heel looks out of proportion to the boot. On the other hand, I happen to be wearing these from Clinch. I don't wear them that much and they have already started to develop the roll and flatness.
