    Shoes that look better with age...

    @julian-wolfwow those look amazing! That is quite often, but the polished look suits them well.

    It really depends on the last. I only have owned Clinch boots on the original classic narrow last. I am a 10.5 on a brannock, and between 9.5 and 10 on a viberg 2030 last. In my Clinch horsehide and Japanese cowhide engineers, I sized up by .5 to Clinch size 11 and they fit me very well. They're actually some of my better fitting boots. The Latigo ones I had in size 11 were too small. I don't know if it was the leather or just an earlier version of the boot, but I unfortunately had to sell them because they were too small. The CN wide last and other lasts they have fit differently so make sure you base your sizing on the last, not just the maker.

    Thanks very much! I agree that his moc toe design is the best out there right now. I have no other moc toes, but I really wanted a pair of his. They're not subtle, but I personally think the double midsole with the half sole plus the woodsman all work together with the chunky last. Of course, I can understand some people thinking it's too much, but I love it. Plus, it was a good excuse to get a pair of At Last Co.

    Thanks Duke. Yes he does like very thick soles. His boots are also quite heavy. I've gotten used to the majority modern Japanese and Indonesian versions of work boots being rather light. These are an exception. Both of my pairs of Flame Pandas are seriously hefty. Not only are they very nicely made and finished, they feel just as tough as my Nick's, which are closer to work boots than casual boots imo.

    Those Moto derbies are beautiful @julian-wolf! My brother has the exact same model and color and he loves his. They are looking really nice after a couple of years of wear. These are my new Flame Panda moc toe boots in Horween color 4 shell cordovan. This is my first pair of shell cordovan boots and I really like the color. The quality is quite good as I was expecting. These are quite chunky as you can see... so much so that they pushed me to finally get some wider cut jeans. Here they are with my At Last Co. Lot. 147 before I hemmed them:

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I love that show. It's probably my favorite show that is currently running. I'm impressed how they have tried to make the show more scientifically realistic in a lot of ways and made that actually make the show more interesting instead of more confusing and/or boring.

    That fabric is indeed amazing. I have a pair in the same fabric (I have the corlection version) and I wish they weren't so tapered. I'd actually wear them if they weren't.

    You're welcome! I'm sure he will be able to help out a lot more.

    The Leather Jacket Thread

    It's a nice jacket. I've seen that model in person when I went to Moto a couple years ago in Japan. The leather does look quite nice. Moto tends to do a great job choosing and finishing their leathers. Construction quality looked solid, though not as elaborate or beautiful as some other makers. I think it's weird that it doesn't have a chest pocket, but that's a personal preference. Right now, I have boots and gloves from Moto/Motor and they both punch well above their price range in my opinion. My guess is that this jacket will likely do the same at 120,000 yen, especially in regard to the leather. You could also talk to Mike @wildfrontiergoods on Instagram. He knows the brand very well and could give you a lot more info on this specific jacket than I ever could.

    I grew up in the '90s, but I've never actually seen that show even though I know the name

    The Leather Jacket Thread

    Yeah that looks like it is embossed the same way as my jacket is. The only difference is that leather actually looks black while mine is actually dark brown. Be careful though. Mine was labelled as "black" on every website and it's definitely not actually black. I cannot say that I am a fan of the printed leather on my jacket. It's not ugly, but I would have much preferred a non-printed leather. I got my jacket because of the design and the fit and I love it, but the leather is by far my least favorite aspect of it.
  12. I'm still here! I still read through some of the threads and like posts and such. I just unfortunately don't have much to contribute right now. Once I get my new CSFs, I will be posting those.

    The length could be good for some people. I'm not a tall guy and have a broad chest so it wasn't great for me.

    The Leather Jacket Thread

    I handled and tried on a couple Orgueil leather jackets in Japan a couple years ago. They was pretty nice, but didn't tempt me away from Freewheelers personally. Unfortunately I only tried on. The cossack jacket was nice and I liked the leather more than the Mister Freedom campus, but the sizing didn't work for me. Was much too long overall. My shirt from Orgueil is fantastic and one of my absolute favorites though.

    Vintage clothing and footwear

    Great thread idea @Flash! I do not have much vintage at all, but I think this is kind of unique so I thought I would share it. It's an old Swedish M-59 jacket from what I think is the 60s or 70s, but I could be wrong. It was modified by a defunct store in England.
