    I'll take a picture tomorrow with my 501z which is appx 7,3inch (18,5cm) once cuffed.

    For now, here is how it looks like with Uniqlo MIJ (not very explicit)

    As I said, he was thinking of going for Espresso burnished captoe with the upper part suede chocolate. He just wanted me to post asking for suggestions and statements of interest.

    ETA: This would not be on the country lasts, but instead one of the City lasts. It started with a 6xxx--can't quite remember right now. Above is, indeed, a picture of a Trickers balmoral boot.

    The pictures with narrower denim (LVC 501z 1954 30x32)

    I received them 10 weeks ago, and are worn about 2/3 times a week.
    The leather is really nice, very subtle creasing and very nice for a patina. I "cream" them regularly (once a week) with universal Saphir cream and waxed them for the first time yesterday (medium brown Saphir polish).
    They look almost new :)

    Ducky,

    Hows riding your bike with those? It looks like you got a chain guard on your chain rings right? None of the grease gets on your pants or boots? If so I'll need to cop one of those chain guards. Anyway thats an Awesome PIC!

    It's the stock chain guard on my Cannondale Quick CX. I still use trouser bands to avoid contact with grease.
    My biggest concern is rain because I didn't install my mudguards yet, and last few weeks have been awefully wet :D

    As for the riding, no particular issue but when I bought my shooting derby at Septième Largeur, the owner of the brand inspected my Eaton and its sole and saw some marks on the danite (I've gripping pedals). He told me to pedal with the front rather than middle foot because otherwise you can break the shank. Ever since, I am fighting with my weird pedaling :embar:

    That's a bash guard, not a chain guard. It's to help protect your chain and crank rings if you land on rocks or logs.
    It's not going to do anything to prevent getting grease on anything.

    An actual chain guard will enclose the chain and mean you're Dutch riding slowly in the city.
