  1. Sorry to hear that ... different strokes for different folks, right?! I suppose I could've chosen anything other than a Gloxi ... or any other color besides black ... but, i have been hunting for a pair of sensible black boots to replace my aging/worn in Black Indy. The design concept was semi-inspired by Kyle Reese's (Michael Biehn) BlackTrench X BlackNike hi-tops steez from the first Terminator movie. So, 'thought I'd treat this F/W Scout to a stealthy, nimble, "hit-the-ground-running" kinda cross-utility urban concrete trekker fit for city-dwellers. The tonal stitching + stained midsole + roughout [alt., waxed flesh] shaft are color-blocking features to visually askew from the blunt opacity of a solid black boot. Btw, the Gloxi is not set in stone, though the sub has to be in wedge, as well ....
  2. Xposting: Summer is a great time to break out those soft&comfy worn in pairs__ don't particularly relish breaking in raws in the middle of muggy NYC summer. SD-101 + s500XX

  4. Update on the Styleforum x Viberg GMTO: FOK updated the possible leather option to Scotch Grain Print Horse Butt (Italy) ... & cuz of the thickness, it can be done on Stitchdown.
  5. Haven't seen any SFxV gmto under 600
  6. @Styleforum is currently conducting this year's 1st VibergGMTO__ thought I'd ask here, if any1 is interested in taking part making [this] urban boots design proposal made: "SMBH" Model: 6" SCOUT Boots, 2-tone Last: 2040 Leather: [Black] Tumbled Horsehide x Roughout Shaft Construction: GYW StormWelt[Black] Sole: [Black] Gloxi-cut Eyelets: 8-Gunmetal Toebox: Partially Structured toe Notes: • [Optional] Kilties • NO Pull-up Strap • *Indigo or Grey-Dyed midsole • All-around__ Grey**Tonal Stitching [including 360• welt stitch] 'Virtually ALL black, so I want to add some textural/tonal features on these. The **indigo-dyed midsole will eventually fade to a lot less contrasty blue-grayish tint, i presume ... the Gloxicut, I'm amenable to beige [if there are more interests, as long as it gets a grey midsole]. Incidentally, black Camel hide can be a substitute, if tumbled HH is not available. I saw the leather on a pair of derbies IRL @SampleSale ... nice soft high-density leather w/ fine pebble texture.
  7. @volvo240thebest Thanx! Yeah, got just the right amount of taper__ not too blockish, not too "cuban" ... & yeah, sleek/pointy workboots are somewhat oxymoronic
  8. Can't get over how Viberg, when they have to, put out the sexiest curve [on heels] ever, IM Had my share of "standard" heels from White's, w/c for me, is a bit of an extreme taper ... while the woodsman, is just too stilt-y.
  9. @HGS Well, i work in uniform, so I get to wear denim [only] going to, after work, & no work ... I'd wear them to sleep, but I sleep motionless like a log, so useless
  10. ^Exactly! Always kept S/S & F/W rotation all through the denim contests I've participated at ... w/c was prolly the main reason I did not win any ... but, the spirit of competition w/ like-minded folks is what's precious.
  11. Originally considering the G014mb for the cut, w/c is similar to the EW-0110. Also, curious how the CopperLabel denim evo on a pair of jeans ... since I'm liking the ataris on the denim jacket. But, as of right now, I haven't even decided if I'm going for the vintage or high contrast route. Here's what I'd like to go for if I decide for a less contrasty option:
  12. ^Yeah, SD is 1/2 size down from SJ. I made a similar mistake__ had the standard SJ @8.5E 1st, w/c fit me very well. So, when I MTOed for my Horsehide SD, I ordered exact same size ... what made it even worse was that I opted for a "swing" last, w/c made them even more loose
  13. @tooth Full Count - 1108EXFull Count - 1108PH Those are all the FCs that I'll ever need ...
  14. "Back to basics" is such an apropos theme for my [probably] last denim contest. Seems it has come to a full circle, as I have decided to select an entry from my old stash for this competition. 'Tripped through the wires [i.e., #japaneseselvedge ] about a decade ago ... & these are some that has kept me indulged since ... SDA 15oz, Warehouse Memphis, Momo CopperLabel, & Sugarcane 50/50.
  15. ^A standard SJ has unstructured/soft toes & lug soles. Photo shows SJ aesthetics__ very nice, actually ... I think the non-standard build is called FarmerRancher, but not sure. If u want the look of an SJ, but the feel/wear of an SD, then opt for a hybrid: SJ on SD last = Bounty Hunter.
