brotherhood of the boot
as the long as this boot exists..
i have to give my parents some credit for letting me use their living room for taking pics. my place is utter shit for pictures - wouldnt have done the boots justice
These bags remind me of Scarlet O'Hara's bonnets!
how is the fit?
Top class beautiful boots, sad they are so hard to find in London. Enjoy and wear in good health.
Have you been forced to move back to your parents and use your place for shoe storage?
It hasn't reached that point yet. Actually, everything I receive is postmarked to their residence. If/When you are way for work between 3-14 days and are unavailable at home to collect your packages, boxes mysteriously disappear from front porch. Lost a RL sweater that way :/
Thank you, sir
Medtech, those chukkas are incredible! I want to reach out and touch them in my screen
Sorry to hear about the sweater loss, but congrats on the boots, they are really nice. Very much you I think!
Medtech, screwdriver last? Or classic?
I actually haven't worn them yet, although with the progressive minor tweaks over my 5 pairs the fit has continued to approximate what I would consider to be optimal. Phillip forgot to have the toe plates installed, so I'll either send them back or just start wearing them.
Thanks! The aesthetics are just what I had in mind, and I'm already contemplating another in a mossy green suede.
It's the classic last, slightly elongated by 1cm.
Medtech, do you order your shoes directly from Philip? What kind of price do you pay for regular calf/suede make up, and how long is the turn around time? I ordered a pair of shoes with Leathersoul in October when Philip was doing a trunk show, I was promised 8 weeks turnaround, but it has been almost 11 weeks now and I haven't heard from them yet.
About to head to LeatherSoul BH to pick up a pair I ordered MTO, model 105 in the classic last, Black/Brown color. Will have pics shortly.
Ezlau - I ordered my pair on November 1st and they came in yesterday. It may be worth a status update call.
