    Has anyone seen these black French calfs from Brooklyn Clothing?

    Same design as the black shell boot Viberg had. I think this one has a partially structured toe; maybe the black shell was unstructured, but the French calf toe box looks a little bulbous. More so than my unstructured 2030 toe (black CXL boot).

    I'm hoping for an exact copy of the Cabourn boot

    I think I am in the minority while I like the distressed look I would much prefer being the way to distress it.

    I am completely with you. I have no desire to buy pre-distressed boots, jeans, etc. I would much prefer to do the work and break them in myself. It feels like cheating on a test to me; you don't do the work required to try and get the desired end result...

    I don't understand the appeal of a pre-dirtied boot.

    The only time I disagree with you both is when there is a specific method that is an art in and of itself, with a functional purpose.
    A good example is the smooth tobacco chamois from Alden.
    It appears almost pre-distressed or vintage, but is not.
    It has a purpose, and is very weather resistant.

    Agreed all. If i'm paying north of $700 for a shoe, I'd like the privilege of beating it up myself.

    Y tu, Namor? I am shocked - thought you'd be crossing your arms and wagging your finger, while wearing some EGs.

    Edit: guess that's "et tu" but no hablo the Latin muy bien.

    What the fuck makes you think that? You should know I gobble it all up. NOM, NOM, NOM. Don't let the large EG collection distract you from my insatiable appetite. I'm a shoe fatty

    Is it just me, or is 8 shell cordovan more red and less dark brown nowadays? Or is it just the photos I've been seeing?

    Bah, nearly checked out a 7.5, but indecision had it slip out of my cart and into another's, and now it's vanished...
