Interesting - thanks for the info!
Only $350? Boy, that's probably got the high end boot makers a little frightened, eh? Because they look incredible.
Another shot of my Flat Head boots from Self Edge...
Just found out that lining will be added to the shaft only so it would have
minimal impact on the sizing.
The strap over the vamp looks goofy on those.
Isn’t that roughly where it is on most boots?
“Roughly” could be a pun!
I’d say at most 1/4” low as average but different makers do seem to have different idea of where it belongs.
Just got these off of Grailed, pretty cool boots!
I also do not like cheap buckles and other hardware on all clothes and shoes.
Does anyone know where to find quality steel or titanium buckles for engineer boots?
I will be very grateful for the hint.
I'd like to replace these cheap buckles with some nice brass ones. I don't know why RW didn't put brass buckles on these boots??
Good price, puts them right in there with Chippewa and Red Wing, at least per UK pricing, but they have a look that is quite different to the boots I have from either of those. My Chippewas are, from memory, an E, though I find they fit well. Where are these on sale? If I could try a pair in Beijing I'd definitely be well up for it.
For me, the real selling point of Wesco is the custom option where you can spec so much at a price less than OTR for some. I'd love to have some Wescos, but I feel the need to wait until I can try some on in the US to get an idea of their sizing and whether their patterns will work for me.
I suspect the high enders won't be too worried; no matter how good they are, I can't imagine the folks who are able and willing to spend a grand on a pair of Clinch, say, will suddenly want to save the money and buy these. Where they will, I think, find a market is among those of us who are happy spending the sort of money RedWings or Chippewas command, but would like something like this with the leather sole and a bit of a different shape. Would love to see these available here in the UK, though EBs seem to be very much a niche product these days.
The new batch won't be ready yet. I don't know if they would be sold OTC thru dealer but I doubt it. The designer is still doing it as a hobby. The designer is affiliated with Bronson so you can keep watch on Bronson's Taobao page.
I agree that they are not in direct competition with the high end makers but many of my fds who own expensive engineer boots including Clinch have placed their order for a pair of the Tea Core. It is still fulfilling to those shopaholics regardless and they don't have to pay that much. I am waiting for their orders to come in so I can try for size LOL.
I'll be interested in your review. Bronson's stuff generally looks good; it's beginning to catch on a little in the West, but I'm still holding out for the extending their size range upwards. I'm losing a little weight as I go along, but I suspect I'll always need a size or two over their current top end to accommodate my swimmer's shoulders (and, er, whiskey barrel belly).
They are getting more and more international customers. They had some trouble with the reseller though. I may be able to pass along your request if you can give me your size.
I’ve had good luck with several Bronson tops but their denim sizing is waaaayoff.
I don't own any of their denim but the measurement of their pants seem pretty accurate. I wonder what went wrong.
To be clear, what I meant was they quote measurements for their pants. I ordered two pair. Each were 3-4 inches off in the waist.
It seems Harness boos are not seen as common as engineer boots.
