    yea totally

    I think we both know what we look like so that wont be a problem

    btw, are you going to have a vendor booth? if so, what location (which room/hotel)?


    No vendor booth this year.. Just a full page ad in the program and talks of doing a special jean for next year's event.

    Denson...don't know much about them as I've never actually seen a pair

    but arent they a bit like a brothel creeper, with the thick crepe sole? I've heard about them in passing conversations about gear but have no experience with em IRL. It did sound like Denson made shoes that were "Jubilees" so I'm sure the 2 have some relation to each other.

    btw, this thread necromance inspired me to get this image from the book "Haircults" for my new avatar!

    Shit and I here I thought you'd just given "little Jas" a new doo.

    I was just skimming through this thread, and had no idea that George Cox had any street cred. I bought a pair at Schuh in Dublin a few years ago on a whim. They looked pretty cool, and were something like 50% off. Just glanced at them again and realized they're goodyear welted. I do recall seeing that they were made in England, and was excited about that since Doc Martens stopped making them domestically years ago. Anyways... I'm glad I stumbled upon this thread.

    speaking of "made in england" and Doc Marten....they just re-released a "Made in UK" line of 8 hole 1460s...some reason it's only in navy and green, not black or oxblood. $150 vs $100 normal MiC

    yep George Cox are goodyear welted (the only creepers to be made this way), except for the winklepickers I had were def not GW, but something along the lines of blake stitched

    btw, there is a series called "My Freedamn" that guys into rockabilly or even denim/workwear style would be into. Their volume 4 & 5 focus on 40s - 50s vintage leather, denim, gabardine etc

    This thread reminded me of it, I'll scan and post some pics from the book later when time permits. All of the pieces are owned by collectors and there is some amazing stuff in there

    they have the navy and green ones on dmusastore.com

    I have the navy ones which I love...so much better than the "navy blue" they used to do which was way too "blue". Too bad the green ones are a Riddler green....would be swell if they were a dark olive

    What a treat! I've never owned a pair of Doc Martens and would like one. I'm very picky though when it comes to shoes and I like the ones make in the U.K. Do you know if they are still available?

    I didn't think that they were... However, Get Smart pointed out that there are two boots currently available that are made in England. They're 8 eyelet instead of the 10 that I have, and only available in navy and green. http://www.dmusastore.com/pc-2290-25-mie-1460.aspx I'm hoping that this "Made in England Collection" that the two boots are from is expanded... because I'd really prefer a cherry (to polish into oxblood) or black in 10 eyelet... My current pair aren't very structurally sound these days, so a replacement is in order fall/winter. I'm not sure whether it'll be another pair of Dr. Martens though, as I've been looking at Tricker's quite a bit.

    they do have the 1461s in cherry (just ordered a pair) but I hope they expand the 1460s to include cherry and black too. I think I may have to go for the navy ones as well. thanks for the heads up!

    Wow! I didn't even notice that they had the shoes that are MIE. I still have a pair of brown leather made in england 1461's in good condition, as I rarely would wear them. The cherry shoes look really nice though, and they may become a future purchase. I just emailed Dr. Martens to see if they're going to expand their color selection on the MIE 1460, or possibly come out with some MIE1490 (fingers crossed). If I get a reply I'll let you all know. Get Smart- can you post a pic of your Navy 1460's? I'd be interested in seeing a non-stock photo. I might buy them, since this british production may not happen again.

    jkennet Thanks! I'm with you there all the way, I may have to wait. I'm not really fond of blue or green boots at the moment.

    call me nuts, but having my pair of old MIE docs from 1990 and comparing them to the current ones that are MIC, I actually prefer the current ones.

    The toebox on the older MIE is a lot shorter than the current ones, which have a taller toebox that I prefer.

    The color of the cherry red on the current ones is more "authentic" to the original color than my MIEs made in the 80s which had a more washed out cherry red color...the current cherry red has a deeper and darker color, which is how it should be

    The sizing seems to have changed somewhere and the MIE size I used to wear is a bit too tight with the current MIC ones and I have to size up one to a US9

    sacrilege, yes.

    Jkennett, I've worn the navy docs in a few WAYWT pics which I'll post tomorrow
