@JustinW yes you most definitely need a black jacket or two...
Onderhoud Maryam Horse Butt Engineers
Benzein TDD-02 Lace up in Maryam T Moro Horse Butt. It's really nice to have a made to order boots w/ your specification (from top to bottom) with premium leather and great construction for around $400 and only 4 months of turn around time.

Yesterday: Craftrite Horsehide Engineers, made in Japan & rarely seen on western hemisphere.
Note:The boots have an excellent price / performance ratio. Yen 75,000 (US- $ 675) are not too much for a HH Boot, made in Japan in this quality. Not sure, if they are still in production... two sizes left US 9-1/2 and 12-1/2. Only .5 sizes were available e.g. 8-1/2, 9-1/2 etc.
As ref. I am size US 9 / UK 8 / EU 42 in most shoes/boots. These are 9-1/2 and 1/2 size too big, means I added a thin leather insole to compensate for the size. Size 9-1/2 is wearable with thick boots socks, but I prefer medium weight socks like chups...
Today: The Real McCoys's Buco Engineers in Buttock Horsehide Lot. BA10010.
Note: A bit fragile boots in terms of leather and construction but still the most comfortable boots for my feet!
I've had these John Lofgren boots about 7 years. Yes!! they need a polish
Those look fantastic. There's just nothing comparable to a well-worn and well-loved pair of boots. No faux-tina here.
Alden snuff suede next to some of the kids’ graffiti.
I love the Alden snuff suede!
Onderhouds breaking in quite nicely.
Ya man, its some lux stuff. My pair aren't as dark as they appear in this photo, but they've darkened a little bc I use Saphir Medaille d'Or waterproofing spray on all my suede shoes/boots.
I own two "snuff" suede pairs: an Alden (Indy) and a C&J (chukka). The Alden is way superior, especially regarding how the colour shade changes depending on light.
I also use the Sapphir D'Or Invulner for my suede shoes (and in general Sapphir products exclusively), great stuff.
Flame pandas landed. They are absolute tanks. Had to use the plastic bag method to get my left foot in. They’re gonna be a bear to break in.
That looks so good. The double row stitchdown looks so neatly done. How did the sizing go? Congrats!
* that ostrich boot looks so textured, it's like a skinned pineapple
I have two pairs of "Dinkelacker´s" in their Shell Cordovan which I wear to the office. Very well made (as they should be given the price), but I continue to struggle with the leather. Whatever I try to treat them, they always appear somehwat dull and lifeless.
May give a go to the calf-leather version. Do you see any change in quality after the take-over from that investment co. some 2-3 years ago?
They look really nice!

This the second best coffee table book on the market (after Cosmo Kramer's coffee table book about coffee tables)
I wish there was a book like this about leather jackets.
