Thanks baldy, how curious that he should not know!?!?

I'm thinking it's Horween, but I'll note the details as provided :)

yea i know right, i guess he's getting it from another party and not directly from a leather tannery which is strange... meh don't wanna speculate. i thought he would have more details for me..

I can't wait to see how those 721's age. I think they're the 1st pair posted here.

I ended up finding some spare cash and just placed my order for brown horsehide White's semi-dress through Baker's. I will post pics when I get them. (Baker's says it's 6 weeks)

My heavily modded Thorogood x Epaulet Horween CXL Horsehide boots . these boots are pretty special to me, since i work with horween cxl horsebutts on a daily basis. i am pretty stoaked how they turned out, plus i really wanted a legit work boot, and not a dress/causal boot for this contest.

custom dye job (thanks mike for the cool idea!) , cats paws, vibram mini lug sole and double leather midsole

these boots are fucken heavy!!!! some real face stompers !!!

^ That's something special you got their mate!

I love the look of that heavy lug unit, works better with the shape of the vamp than the original one I reckon.

12 hours left to go for me...going to wear the boots around the house at midnight :P

^ Happy new year to you too riff, and I wish all you guys and girls the very best for 2012!

First day today - lots of walking in the Summer heat, had to make a couple of trips to the animal hospital as my cat is a little sick.

Tried on the Thorogood #685 in the morning:

In direct sunlight the dye job is still a bit patchy. I'm going to re-dye them again, but this time no nonsense, straight up raven oil after I remove the wax coating...should have pics in a few days time.

Played around with my new Droid phone:

In the meanwhile, Tricker's Stow boots will do:

Looking forward to seeing all the boots listed in the first post - bring on the shoe pr0n.

      Time to officially kick off the contest now that the jeans have reached at least some of you!
      Fabric: A14 oz denim with a very light pink selvedge-ID made by a blend of US cotton. It was made to capture the essence of vintage Cone and I'd say it turned out very well. It starts out flat and uniform before it hits water, then it crocks like crazy. Should get some nice vertical falling. The fabric is made exclusively for Denimbridge by Yamaashi mill in Okayama on a Toyoda shuttleloom. According to Shingo it's a small factory which is an important factor for both Shingo and us in this project.
      If you want to see a little of how the fabric ages Shingo has started using it for his latest Denimbridge cut. http://denimba.com/denimbase/2018/11/03/23478 
      You can read more about the jeans on my blog indigoveins.com and also a piece on the guys behind the jeans.
      The contest length: The contest will run until January 31th. After that you will all have until February 28th to post the final pics.
      The prizes: The winner will win a pair of Denimbridge jeans, sponsored by Denimbridge, and the runner-up gets a €200 voucher from Göteborg Manufaktur.
      The jury: A jury of 5 will judge the contest winner: Shingo-san, Kuniyoshi-san, Jonas and Olof that runs Gbg Mfg and myself.

      Hey guys, I have some very exciting news to share. Soon I will release a collaboration I’ve done with my good friends at http://www.goteborgmanufaktur.se and Shingo-san of Denimbridge, sewn by the one man army Kuniyoshi-san of Double Volante in their new project Denim Base. 14 oz greatness made in Japan with a really nice vintage vibe to the fabric and a lovely olive herringbone fabric for the pocketbags. 
      Measurements:
      Size W26 W27 W28 W29 W30 W31 W32 W33 W34 W35 W36 W38 W40 Waist/inch 25 26 27 28 29 29.9 30.9 31.9 32.9 33.8 34.4 36.4 38.4 Front rise/inch 10.6 10.8 11 11.2 11.4 11.6 11.8 12 12.3 12.4 12.6 13 13.4 Back rise/inch 12.6 12.8 13 13.2 13.4 13.6 13.8 14 14.2 14.4 14.6 15 15.4 Thigh/inch 11.1 11.3 11.6 11.8 12 12.3 12.5 12.8 13 13.2 13.5 14 14.4 Knee/inch 7.5 7.6 7.8 8 8.1 8.3 8.4 8.6 8.7 8.9 9.1 9.2 9.2 Leg opening/inch 6.9 7 7.1 7.2 7.3 7.4 7.5 7.7 7.8 7.9 8 8 8 Inseam/inch 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 Shingo measures the front and back rise a little differently which gives different measurements from the BiG-method. Here you can see how he measured them if you scroll down: http://denimbridge.jp/overseas
      Fabric: A14 oz denim with a very light pink selvedge-ID made by a blend of US cotton. It was made to capture the essence of vintage Cone and I'd say it turned out very well. It starts out flat and uniform before it hits water, then it crocks like crazy (which you kind of can see in the pic above). Should get some nice vertical falling, going by the washed samples. The fabric is made exclusively for Denimbridge by Yamaashi mill in Okayama on a Toyoda shuttleloom. According to Shingo it's a small factory which is an important factor for both Shingo and us in this project.

      Since there's been talk about doing a Denimbridge contest for a few years now I was thinking now might be a good time with a special release. The jeans will be made in August so a contest could be possible to start late September.
      The prize: The winner will win two prizes: a pair of Denimbridge jeans, sponsored by Denimbridge, and also a prize from Göteborg Manufaktur.
      Pre-order: The pre-order is running until June 15th via https://goteborgmanufaktur.se/brands/goteborg-manufaktur/goteborg-manufaktur-x-indigo-veins-x-denimbase-gbg001-jeans-pr.html
      I'll have more info to share in the next couple of days and will post more details about the jeans. But for now, what do you guys say, shall we put up a contest?
