    Shoes that look better with age...

    Got my Bounty Hunters back from White's. Took a little less than 2 weeks for a resole. Pretty happy with the work.

    Thinking about putting my streaky denim Cougars up on ebay. Think I got them in 2009, but they were really tight then and don't fit now. That was before the earthquake that destroyed the shop. They have some cool details that Ande didn't include in his new designs.

    Finally sent my bounty hunters in for a resole after almost 4 years. A little concerned about the vamp after cleaning and oiling them before shipping out.

    Yea, I was on the south side, right at the border of civilization and hickville.

    I've never liked how Lee jeans have looked and always associated them with the dumbass hicks from my high school that wore cowboy hats and drove old raised trucks.

    They say they source all fabric domestically and from White Oak. They allude to different fits and also rigid and stretch denim choices, but just have the one model atm I guess. Wouldn't expect hidden rivets at that price point, but would be nice.

    Interesting. I just came across this company and they claim to be working with Cone to source their denim. https://www.backcountrydenim.com/

    That's been me for a few years. After wearing raw indigo jeans for years, I was wanting a pair of black on black jeans and my favorite denim brand was out of stock, so I bought some Levi's 513 with elastane in them to tide me over. Well, they fit me perfectly and that little bit of stretch made a huge difference in mobility/comfort and I haven't really gone back to my raw. I just bought some more jeans that are designed for rock climbing, with even more stretch in them and a water repellent finish that'll be nice in the rain. :x Denim is getting new tech that I like. Still rock my Iron Heart flannels and White's boots every day, though.

    Agreed. I've had some pairs for 3 years and they're still going strong.

    Damn. And I thought my heels were well-worn.

    I use Obenauf's lp, mainly because they get scuffed and wet a lot at work. They look dull at first but after a some wearing and brushing, the shine comes back. I have Obenauf's oil too. Feel like they need some of that soon. I was really considering chromexcel, but since these were boots mainly used for work, I wanted something a little tougher like distressed smooth, and after some aging they look pretty similar Think I'll go with the same heel and sole as before. I do a ton of walking in them and was happy to get 3 years out of the vibram 700 and quabaug heel. A half sole and full leather heel stack would be cool but I feel like the full sole is better for my conditions. Considering asking for the heel to be more of a straight taper, like Viberg does, instead of a logger style.

    I remember seeing this pair on here or styleforum and it helped me decide on going with distressed smooth leather bounty hunters. 3 years later mine look pretty similar. :]

    Let's take a moment to appreciate all the hard work wildland firefighters in White's/Nick's/Wesco boots are doing in California. I live 200 miles away from the Campfire in northern California, but the air quality here is near toxic levels. Saw this image today on my feed and it really struck me.
