    But for a formal jacket could you? The workmanship on the embroidery looks stunning; I'm not really surprised at the price. Casual vs. formal doesn't even seem like the right frame.

    I don't even pay that much for bespoke suits, to be honest. That's like Huntsman, Rubinacci territory.

    I'm seriously waffling on seeking out a pair of legit cowboy boots, to the extent that I've been kind of obsessed for the past month. Have I completely lost it?

    Made by hand, including tooling; lemonwood pegs, etc. Not even sure how I would wear them but goddamn I want to try. Kapital jeans, maybe? Random pair of RRL? Old 501s? Old cloak tux jacket and stonewashed jeans? A shearling bomber and jeans seems like a solid bet, as does a sashiko chore coat.

    I have no idea what I'm doing.

    I don't even know. A boot tuck seems wrong, but then how do you see the sneks?

    Only the privileged get to see the snakes. And by then, it's too late.

    Get them. Seriously. The best purchases are the most unexpected.

    Wear with Kapital jeans, throw some dust on them, a button up that's unbuttoned halfway for full sleaze, don shearling bomber or sashiko coat, throw more dust on em, ride into the sunset, never to be seen again. become reborn

    I never wear boots of any kind but for some reason grabbed a couple pairs of Luccheses last year, mostly wear them with dress pants and suits (CM cosplay days) because fuck it. No snakes but I'd like one of those ridiculously ornate models.

    Went with regular round toes, snip toes weird me out.


    Do it.

    You mean a roper toe or a French toe? Seriously considering flying to Austin just to try them on.

    First pair, third pair and the snakes are all good choices.

    I have not reached cowboy boots yet (aside from a pair of Wesco Morriosns on order) but it could well happen sooner than later.

    Where are these examples from or do I have to reverse image search them?

    Some of those lucchese models have a kind of chisel toe. Is that what you mean? They have one called the "squire" that seems like it would work for cm dress up. But then you don't get snakes.

    I think the square/snip toe looks pretty cool on cowboy boots, unique at least

    I like these, no snakes, though

    I always think cowboy boots look better totally trashed or at least dusty. Not feeling the super ornate ones that look like they've never been on a ranch.

    please, please, please... sipang fit pic in CM suit and cowboy boots.

    I guess I'm the opposite - the dirty square-toed ones I see (and I see plenty) all just look like shit kickers. I like the idea of a more ornate/dressy thing with a snip or slightly rounded toe

    But there are almost certainly some serious dudes out there in shiny ornate boots pressed jeans and shirts and a big hat, right? But maybe that doesn't work well if you aren't actually one of those dudes.

    Yeah, I wouldnt even know what I was dressing up AS, if you get me. I much prefer the idea of working something aboslutely absurd into my normal life anyway.
