    Can I get an SF consensus on these Chippewas?

    Assuming one removes the flag?

    Negative, but I'm living in NYC and need a pair of boots for the snow/rain. I'm thinking DBs won't cut it.

    I think the Chippewa 25290 would be better in snow with the lug sole.

    In that case Tricker's Stow commando or other british "country" boot will be plenty sufficient. It's not like you're going to be trudging through the mud all day laying pipe, or building log cabins on the frontiers of Williamsburg.

    any suggestions for a plain slim derby in black, pref from $250-400. i was looking for quality from the northhampton makers but not so slim. the apc derby from tres (http://www.tresbienshop.net/en/art/apc-derbies.php) is ideally what id like but id like my experience with apc is you just toss them when they're done. checked out kelvin's kirks, but id think theyd be too clownish for my 10.5 feet

    T&F Slack reasonably priced at 185gbp. Looking to get the green ones. Would look good with my future purchase of a Marc Jacobs army jacket with light blue 'rinse' faux collar.

    Look like Timberland 1000 mile boots, which you can get for around that price (or less even) if you are patient. Just trust me, you don't want to get a cole haan boot when there are others out there of solid quality. A cheap boot is just going to feel cheap, and you'll be wearing them all day! [​IMG]

    These just arrived earlier this week. I paid 80 quid expecting NIB Loakes Burford boots, and when they arrived they were the Burford twos! Brand spanking new, just had to put an insole in em because they were a tad too spacious. Almost makes up for not getting the brogues I wanted in the Gilt Grenson sale a few days ago... they must have sold out in 60 seconds.

    I finally got a pair of the W+H service boots. Love the fit, but I was thinking about putting a thin rubber sole on them. The soles have been worn a bit with about a weeks worth of wear. I can take them to a local cobbler next week and I was wondering what options I have and what would work the best.

    Sorry, late at night typo. Wolverine 1000 miles shouldn't be too bulky, as far as boots go (I don't know the ascots)... did you size down at all? There are a lot of options out there... if you want to ball out, these are gorgeous:

    Red wing gentleman travelers are also an option and don't have a larger footprint than a dress shoe.
