    The first pair a purchased really was not the cut for me. They fit but not the best for me. Expensive lesson to learn. Trying another cut.

    Once you know what dimensions you like where their site is outstanding. Different runs of the same model will have different measurements. Best thing to do is measure (per ih method on their site) your favorite jeans. Then compare it to the numbers on their page.

    I wonder if it is because the last does not work for you or the materials used by this particular maker. I had a pair of those jungle boots from surplus stores catalogue and I used to wear them to outdoor war games (wore the Magnum classic for indoor games). I put a thin insole in it and we would be playing in the woods treading thru mud the whole day. Only thing not working is driving. I had a sports car with very sensitive gas pedals that are narrow with almost zero spacing to the brake. I usually had to change to sneakers to drive.

    I heard about them! Oh man they are very tempting and I think they look better this time around. Although I am trying not to make any new boot/shoe purchases this year so I unfortunately have to sit this one out. I still have my Flame Panda’s coming later this year (ordered last year) and those will probably be the only new boots this year.

    You may well be right about the last and materials, had a comment that they are the narrowest boots I’ve been seen in. Something wasn’t right even though they they appeared to fit well, a couple of people suggested they might not ‘break in’ as I would like, so after 5 days of torture I decided to cut my loses. They would have been no good for driving in, I’ve got a sports car & there would have been gas and pedal issues.

    Is the engineer boot still the most iconic model from Role Club? Or is there something else worth looking at?

    I think so. His Underdogs and lace to toe boots are also popular. I’d recommend checking his Instagram for inspiration.

    Red Wing 9197 postman boot. These were resoled by the previous owner with Vibram mini-lug soles and an added shank. Really comfy boots.

    I think so too, it seems to be his halo product. When it comes to engineers he’s one of best and his pattern is stellar. Now, everything else he makes looks phenomenal too. Anything you get him you would not be disappointed. My plan is to get engineers from him but also have thought about his lace to toe model

    Are those the 1200 model?

    That's what I have and I'm with you man, they are by far the most comfortable boots I have.

    Got it! I was looking into the wescos and then I asked about clinch engineers (S&S will restock them by October) but good thing they are not able to preorder a pair my size so that will save me some money lol


    You are on a roll, buddy! Those are beasts, looks like they will fight back! Happy break in!


    These are sweet looking! Is that a natural finish or brown?

    Brown. But they started dark brown like on the shaft and have progressively gotten lighter. Moto/r makes some seriously awesome boots.

    GOt it! That's a nice pair! It's the leather things motor company right? Do they have a US based stockist? I'm looking for a brown pair as well. S&S said they won't restock the clinch engineer boots in my size so I'm looking at other options

    @Jin431
    Yup that’s them. I don’t think they have stores in the US that stock their products, but I’m not sure. Perhaps @dudewuttheheck or @Blackadder can confirm. I got mine from YA Japan. If you’re looking at them I would go for their newer engineer model. They look much better than mine IMO

    The more I’ve looked into the new Wesco’s the more the skinny straps bother me. I just feel like the straps on the previous knuckle draggers looked better.
    The clinch engineers are just on another level...not only in design but also price lol. I believe they were doing a preorder a few months back for them. Although I think the preorder was available only to previous Clinch customers and members of the SDP discord (more reason to join :) ). Interestingly enough they’re doing a natural colored leather opposed to the typical overdyed black and brown. This is the photo they were sending around, no mock ups available but it would be this leather.
