    I saw those at Inspiration and really liked them. I'm trying to tell myself I don't need an ecru/white jacket.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    You guys aren't trolling or being rude at all. Totally fair observations. In my opinion, it depends on how you look at it. I would hate to think that I am as bad as a stereotypical "influencer," but yeah I do things that would fit the description a bit. Still, I think compared to what a lot of "influencers" do I am not even close to as bad as them. I'm not covered in Taylor Stitch, Thursday boots, and cheap alcohol advertisements. Just because I show my socks with my boots in some posts doesn't put me on that low of a level IMO. Of course, you could argue that I am so used to seeing the really bad "influencers" that I have become more like them without noticing. On the other hand, I'm just posting pictures of my outfits, my clothes, and my boots on Instagram. We do that on forums too. I will fully admit that I used to post things that I didn't want to just to play the Instagram game, but I don't do that anymore. Plus, my genuine belief is that the amount of people that influence trends and purchases go far beyond larger instagram accounts. This forum for example influences things pretty strongly and has for a very long time.

    The whole influencing this is so weird. I thought Indigoshrimp's article on it was quite good. https://indigoshrimp.wordpress.com/2019/07/16/reflections-on-denim-influencers-the-hobbyist-perspective/

    You could just make it up and put it in your bio. I've seen that recently.

    Yeah he even says in is Instagram bio that he is a "freelance promoter of leather boots and shoes"

    Not as lower priced compared to Brass as I would have expected. Would love to know who actually makes them.

    I know there is some involvement from Brass Tokyo, at the very least the owner Minoru Matsuura is one of the people involved along with a Japanese 'boot promoter' named Michiya Suzuki. What it looks like is sort of a budget Brass brand (though still priced fairly high I would assume). I'm noticing things like double row instead of triple row stitching on the uppers and a more standardized makeup. The question is who is actually making them? I would be surprised if the small team at Brass was actually making them, but it's possible.

    Some of those fits look to me like they were pulled straight out of our WAYWT threads

    I still kind of regret selling those BBs. Probably my favorite back pockets of all time. I actually wonder if they might not fit me though anyway. I'll keep telling myself that so I don't feel as bad.

    That aged sample looks really nice in black. If I was getting the Coupens and it wasn't those cool Badalassi ones that Indigoshrimp has, I'd probably go for black unless you specifically don't want black boots. I think you have a solid collection of brown boots though if I'm not mistaken.

    Don't most boots have white outsole stitching? Look at all the boots @Broark just posted including the RDT boots. My non-engineer boots mostly have white outsole stitching too. I would assume it's just the standard color in general. I doubt it makes a difference when resoling because that original thread is not longer there when you resole it.
  13. dudewuttheheck

    Shoes that look better with age...

    @Broark maybe you can pre-order them in brown? I'm assuming they'll restock at some point.

    Hope they work out! What leather did you go with?

    I took a 10 in these and as I said I'm a 10.5 on a Brannock. They fit slightly roomy, but not loose. I'm a 9.5/10 in Viberg 2030. The 9.5 is slightly snug and the 10 is a little too roomy. Viberg tells you to go one size down from Brannock and these you should go .5 down it seems, but again, sizing is not exact and feet are weird.

    Thanks! I'm really glad I was able to finally commit to it. Current situation makes it more difficult to make serious progress, but I'm maintaining pretty well right now. I feel much better overall and another bonus is that I get colder much easier

    I know generally where I would need it hemmed before soak so I will happily take advantage of the free hemming. Shipping out November/December is fine too. I'm down for earlier too, but I can do either.

    Yeah I think the definition of 'dressed up' is not set at all. I used to have to wear suits every day to work at a couple of my old jobs so this feels way more comfortable to me in comparison. When I'm running around doing errands though I will sometimes just throw on a sweatshirt or even double denim with a t shirt and sneakers... I'll have to take some pictures of that at some point.

    Thanks man! I'm glad I went with the blue shirt instead of just doing whit/ecru like I always do. Not rude at all it's a totally fair question. For one thing, I actually have started to feel pretty comfortable dressing like this now so for me when it's cooler out, this feels casual to me. However, I do wear more casual outfits sometimes and that's definitely true in the summer. As it warms up, I wear lighter weight non-leather jackets over t shirts or short sleeve shirts over t shirts and sometimes I wear just a t shirt too. I live pretty close to the ocean so it's not actually that hot most of the time here. Socal has a lot of micro climates and where I am is one of the cooler areas in the summer. Here are some shots from over the summer. I may or may not have posted these already.

    I voted to start now, but if we have to wait, I'm still in. This will be my first Warehouse pair and I'm good with the general details so I'm pretty happy no matter what at this point.

    Yeah his work is definitely worth more than he is charging by quite a lot in my opinion. Perhaps part of it is the negative image that "Made in China" has. I know he has mentioned to me that he has worried about that to some degree. Hopefully the more people see his boots, the less that will be an issue for him. He's a really nice guy as well.

    They're the same size as my Wesco, but my Attractions fit me more comfortable. I am a 10.5 on a brannock and I have a 10 in both of those boots, but the Wesco are slightly tight in the front especially on the left foot. The Attractions are not loose at all and if you're a wider foot, I would personally think you should go TTS. I can't say any of this for sure though, sizing is difficult. I forgot to post these Flame Panda boots. He only sells on Instagram now, but he's a bootmaker from China who imports basically all of his materials and hand welts all his boots and on this pair (and I think all his boots) does hand sewing on the outsoles as well. His moc toes and monkey boots are my favorite so I got his monkey boots and I like them a lot. He does a triple sole on the front which tapers down to a single leather midsole with a full rubber sole in the middle before the heel stack. Quality is overall really good. The midsole/outsole stitching is very dense and quite clean for being done by hand, but not as clean as White Kloud by any means. Upper stitching is also overall really good and quite dense, but not as neat or consistent as Clinch. Either way, the boots are worth a lot more than the price in my opinion (which is around $670 for this leather.) That leather is Maryam natural horserump which does include the shell part. It is quite different from the leather on my Onderhouds which is also Maryam horse leather, but this version has a lot more shell in it.

    Voted as well. I have gotten more and more interested in this as it has developed.
