I hope it does age well, I have a pair of Oxford 145s coming in brown oil tan.
Can anyone comments whether structured / unstructured toe will affect comfort of the shoe or just the aesthetic? Thanks.
I'm working out my specs for a 145 oxford MTO.
Any additional details?
No. Only on the types of toe
I received my 145's today. Brown oil tan leather on a special order Vibram #1743 Bologna sole. If you look at my avatar I'm standing on my tank from 1972. I know tanks and these shoes are tanks - very manly! A beautiful, rugged well made shoe - they will last a lifetime. I have owned AE, Alden, Trickers, AS, Loake, etc... and these oxfords impress me more than any of them. The construction is flawless - and the customer service from Morgan and the gang was second to none. It took six weeks from order to shipping. Not bad at all, and worth the wait!
double post, my apologies....damn mouse must be sticking
Some nice stuff up on the new Viberg websit.....anybody buy anything??
seer - great looking shoes. Those look pretty rock solid. I like the metal eyelets and the captoe. I am interested in seeing how the leather wears over time.
Enjoy the shoes!
I know something of good leathers - this is top notch; thick, supple. I have no doubt that it will wear well. My next MTO will be rough-out.
What happened to everyone?
No sample sale, so the thread went back to normal.
Saw the Walnut Shell Service boots up on the instagram today. So awesome. Hoping they hit a store within internet buying distance.
Walnut shell is my favorite.
Do you a link, or a picture you can share?
Are the boots on their website in US or UK sizes?
The main reason I ask is because the largest size advertised is a size 11.
If in UK, typically are they one full size or a 1/2 down from normal?
Viberg is UK sizing by default.
