I think the black dust is lined which will have added reinforcement. Plus, think of how much force there is on the holes on a belt, they may stretch a little but they won't tear.
I would definitely wear them hard (by that I mean frequently but in a city setting). I am a bit worried about long term durability, though on the other hand I also think you'd have to be pretty rough when lacing to really cause damage. I'm 90% sure I'll keep them though maybe I'll shoot an email to Guy and see what he says. I'm sure he won't say "yea man, they won't last that long."
Eyelets are easy to add, either by yourself or a local repair place.
Eyelets add to durability but I also prefer them because they are (to my eye) more casual.
Woah, i'm excited to get mine from BCC if that's the true colour.
I personally like that they have the gun metal eyelets also.
I received these from BCC and after getting the left boot out of the box and on I was super pleased. I went home, took out the other to compare how they looked with the different laces and then was obviously less pleased as the right boot is such a different color, more dull purple than navy. I wrote to BCC this AM and will call to follow up. I assume they will make it right..so far they were great to deal with.
So close to my first pair yet so far.. Thankfully I have the natty cxl boot coming in the GMTO, I have a strong sense there won't be a similar QC issue.
update : BCC called shortly after I e-mailed and are working to resolve.. Canadians are nice.
This leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Those shoes are clearly two different colors. Either no one bothered to look at the boots, or they looked and thought, "eh, maybe they won't complain." Neither scenario is acceptable in my opinion at this or any price point, but especially at this price point.
I hear you and @skepticaljesus and am willing to write this off as human error..will let you know how it all works out.
It's weird, the navy one looks correct, but the other one almost looks like Alden's #8. I've seen Viberg's #8 and it's typically much redder/lighter, but Alden's #8 shell get refinished to a deep burgundy/eggplant, and that's what the off boot looks like in the pic above. Doesn't look navy hardly at all.
Maybe they had direct contact with sunlight?
it's a mystery ! and clearly different colors
Agree completely with Skeptical Jesus..
I am not a difficult person,however every point made is spot on.
Curious to know how it plays out.
