  1. Shoes that look better with age...

    If you are interested in the offerings from Wesco they do offer making a custom last for your foot. Also Role Club offers custom sizing. While the cost of the Role Clubs are higher in pricing up front Wesco's are likely to cost similar if you do go the custom last route.
  2. Loopwheeled/Vintage T-Shirts

    I recently got the Flat Head in XXL and the rite stuff in XL as well as Merz B. Schwanen in XXL. I found these ones work for me. Also the IH 2017 model is 46-47" in the chest in XXL. All of these are all tubular. I also like the Whitesville pocket T but, I don't know if they are loopwheeled.

    Ohh. I have been eyeing the Romeo's by Wesco.

    The soft unstructured toe on mine looked similar prior to them resoled. They were a custom order that I got measured for.

    I think is just the way the soft toe is sitting was giving him that idea. I also broke inn my smokejumpers on construction sites.

    Just got my Smokejumpers back from Brian the Bootmaker.

    Ahh. I never seen that collection before myself. Typically I see Chippewa boots in general work boot shops.
  8. Shoes that look better with age...

    I they are still around. They seem to be a more budget friendly made in USA brand like Throgood but, seem to be more geared towards work boots only.
  9. Watches and Denim

    That is the reasoning that lead me to going with the SRP779. The balance of utility and aesthetics as well as the robustness.

    I have herd that you can insure pretty much anything granted your are willing to pay for it and a person who can write up the policy. I have herd of high end glass art that is used for smoking being insured as art.
  13. The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    I like to rock Vans since I skate in them. I dig their MTE edition for a wintertime sneaker.

    Iron Heart Left Field NYC Wesco Boss 7400
  15. Shoes that look better with age...

    For the wesco engeneers, if the size works and you don't want to go through the custom options I highly recommend looking at the Boss 7400's. It is a model that they keep in stock. The build is is the one they did for the Narrow boss for Wesco Japan but, just their black domain leather and no HH. Dude's Wesco's do look like they have most of the hallmarks of the 7400 build.(MP Toe, 30's? style stitching) I have a pair on 7400's that I did have to custom order as I have superwide feet using their wider MP toe last after getting the OK from Wesco. I do agree some builds done for shops do have nicer options than a direct custom order.
