Speaking of boots

@dieworkwear I found stock pics of the cowboy boots I own (French cowboys technically, missing the split shaft thingy etc). Mine are burgundy and black (I'd take some pics but they're in storage).First model has a slightly rounder toe.
If you feel like branching out at twice the price (as is SF tradition)

Thanks! Those are La Botte Gardiane, right? I remember seeing those in the DBF thread.

They look great. I already ordered the non-cowboy version of the Tecovas boots, so we'll see. Was thinking of wearing these with workwear and then maybe trying a slightly sleeker, obviously cowboy style boot down the road.

I mean, wearing slim pants in 2021...

Cool cool. Are the Fall/Winter looks out ? @OccultaVexillum
Gotta have slim for certain fits . I do like wider pants more in general, but with certain tops slim looks better

@sipang There's a few things around. There's this video that Déborah posted for buyers.

There's also some other articles around:

But I saw the boots on IG.

Looking for a new pair of boots to wear with jeans

Here's a couple of pics of my Floyds, pretty sure mine is that same exact model/colorway:

Stuff I'd think about:
  • They look great with lighter or mixed palettes. You don't want to be wearing a dark ensemble with sparkly tan boots. Gray ones would be hard to pull off with mid-blue jeans imo because of insufficient contrast.
  • They are a little shiny as you can see from the pics. If you are going for workwear and/or you want to beat them up bad, they might not be the ones. That said, I have worn mine often and with little care, and they look great.
  • The color under direct sun is almost tan, while it gets to a mid-sometimes-dark-but-very-saturated brown in the shade.
  • The leather is so soft… they are super comfortable and easy. They are my "lazy boots" now.

Yeah, I actually emailed them about that a while back, after this season's cancelation of those items, and they confirmed it should be coming in both jacket and vest formats. Unfortunately not in that fantastic taupe color, although the fabric they've chosen in place of that is also nice.

Wasn't there also a rust colored version? Yeah it's a pity it didn't make into production, seems like it caught a lot of eyes

Yeah, that sounds familiar, although I don’t have a mental image of it. I think it’s exclusively taupe in their FW20 lookbook. I actually bought a Barbour quilted Liddesdale in a taupey brown moleskin (which may even have been what DBF is referencing with their version) when I found out there was no chance of the taupe DBF version happening. That said, very good chance I’m still a customer for their version when fall rolls around.
