    Yup. For a daily wearer get Alden shells. There is no contest. Of course you're going to ignore this and compromise by going cheap, but hey it's on the record.

    EDIT: Beat me to it.

    Yeah, the Florsheim leather has been really underwhelming from everything I've handled, even the Duckie Brown stuff

    ^Well Flors X Duckie shell is good. The standard leather, yeah, is not great. The pebble grain stuff is okay though that is perhaps because you can put up with more variance in quality from pebble grain.

    can't get behind non-ribbed cuffed sweats, it seems I'm in the minority though

    Hugo Boss Salice boot on sale for $170. Looks to be a hybrid between a Jodphur and zip boot.

    Yes or no?


    not really feeling those. the buckle just seems like its in a weird spot when i picture the boots being worn with jeans

    those sweats look about as dope as any of the others ive seen on here. besides the wjk ones someone posted

    Not sure on the quality and construction of Chaps, if there was a better made alternative in a similar style I would consider those as well.

    Thanks for the suggestions: the Buttero's are bought brand new and worn 5x. The distressing is intentionally supposedly. I am leaning toward the Buttero but size may be a factor (41.5) and I am true US9. AND also thanks for the Frye suggestion i.e. http://www.thefryecompany.com/Produc...-87580COG.aspx I was looking for it, didn't realize name change. AND thanks for the head up regarding the JV, do not want a high shaft... (Thanks all, this thread actually worked (0))

    Size down 1 on Butteros (check their online store for more accurate sizing)

    those will be way too big.
    Size down 1 on Butteros (check their online store for more accurate sizing)

    even more if you can. I'm a true US8.5 and i got a 40, they're about half a size large but perfect with an insole.

    if you go by 8.5=41.5, i'd size down at least 1.5-2.

    unless you have weird feet.

    Even if I get the thickest insole by Superfeet? I was going to kop and take to cobbler and see if he can work his magic. The boots are up for sale via marketplace $120--up for grabs! Now unsure whether I should jump on it
