I'm with you. They both look pretty good.
If you're looking for something more formal for work, I like the plaza last. However, my barrie lasted boots have worked well this winter for what you described also...
Snuff suede (I think) unlined chukkas on Myhabit. 8, 10 & 11.5 for $365.
Ugh I know. Luckily not terribly cold.
Quick bump for our color 8 plaza captoe gMTO, please see full design below with photo for example. We have 7 confirmed participants and several potentials, we only need 5 more to put this order through!
This is an order through a reputable vendor that I've successfully done gMTO through before, the final price will be inline with current 4060 prices ($710-$730). Confirmation + delivery is somewhere around 8-10 months from time of submission, nonrefundable deposit is $200, balance due on delivery.
Color 8 Shell
Black edge, 270 flat welt with closed heel
Color matched all metal eyelets
Double leather sole
*Our design will have all eyelets instead of eyelets + hooks shown with these boots
Any thoughts of adding an Indy stitch?
I believe the standard edge used on Color 8 (such as on the boots pictured above) is mahogany, not black.
Thanks! So basically, I didn't like the single flex welt sole or all eyelets that came on the Unionmade McCoppin. Single flex welt on a casual CXL boot seemed off to me. Additionally, half the eyelets weren't installed properly out of the factory. There were little sharp barbs sticking out which would catch onto the laces and make it really difficult to get the boots on and off. I've seen this on a few other Alden boots. Part and parcel of Alden QC, I suppose. Either way, it's extremely annoying and chews up the laces really quickly too. End rant.
Anyway, I had Original Dr Sole do the work. He added a corded half sole and heel (all welted by hand) and switched out the brown eyelets for brass eyelets and hooks. The work was outstanding. The boots feel much more robust now and feel like real $hit kickers. I've had a few other boots done by him and will be sending my Color 8 Indy boots to him at some point once the soles are worn out.
Thanks! I don't wear them enough but I do love them.
Assuming E width could be ordered, I'm in.
Umm, you mean radically changing the style of the boot?
I think he was referring to the side stitch.
Probably not, it would completely change the look of the boot and make it much more casual than the original design.
Thanks! I thought so too, but couldn't confirm.
Done! We are doing C/D/E widths.
Very nice.....one of my favorites!
I will be on the lookout for those around town.
