Grandpa's HBT shirt came from my uncle, quite happy with it, and the fact it's not dry rotted.
It seems to have a fair bit of repairs and alterations, along with stains and paint. Th sunfading is also immaculate. Served him well from Okinawa too NYC, hoping I can wear it for years too come as well :D

Picture looks awkward and doesn't make the boots look very good to my eye*, but according to some searching, these are some custom boots from Frank's, a company formed by former employees of Nick's Boots (who are an affiliate here).

*Hopefully the OP can tell us more.

Hello and thank you. I am newly semi-retired and starting to replace my suits.and wingtips with more fun clothing like barn-coats, canvas work wear, denim and boots. The boots in the photo are a custom MTO from Frank's boots in Spokane Washington. I have very flat, wide feet with a pronounced instep and my semi-retirement has me on my feet for 8 hours stretches on a concrete floor at a paint store. I needed something solid as a rock with support in the arch and a heel to shift weight to my forefoot and off my heels. I already had some traditional 8" and 6' workboots, so Frank made me these. It took some time in production, but I think it will be worth it.

4" boots with a padded collar
Black over chocolate boot leather
Cap-toes
Double stitch down
Green stitching on the uppers
Double midsoles
Honey Vibram soles with brass sole screws

Well, they look good to my eye, but thanks. Now I know how much time to spend here.
