    Those Luccheses look nice. I've wanted a pair of ropers for quite some time

    Butte, that leather looks super-nice. What jacket are you planning to wear with them? I was just thinking they'd look killer with one of the Thedi Plisskin-style jackets.

    Bob, they go with anything really. Already took 'em out with the Ventura and an old civi A-2. Kids (20's somethings) all liked 'em with my selvedge jeans so I think they're fairly versatile. Almost hipster looking, but not quite.
    I think the thing that shocked me most was getting a zipped pair. I'm already looking at another pair in black, and while I'll always love jackets, having more than 3-4 leather pieces isn't too wise here. I'll keep adding footwear in the meantime. It's a lot of fun, and I can use the mindless task of polishing to getting out my anxiety...

    Following up on Butte's post I have a pair of Western toe Morrison's (not my picture) that I really like, so underrated I think. I'm going to order another at 9" in July in some brown CXL horsehide. I can't find a picture of Wesco's in that leather but Role Club uses it and it's a really tasty color.

    That is certainly an interesting avenue to explore :)
    I have looked at it and it certainly is another rabbit hole, scarily enough it goes very well with our jackets!

    @Dickie Teenie - just conversing with Brian the Bootmaker over some custom boots. The Role's are epic.
    @red devil - it IS a rabbit hole to be sure, but here, leather jacket have such a short period each year that I've gone over to acquiring other gear like boots, belts, etc. Same leather fetish, but usable year-round...

    Butte, I'm typically not a fan of ropers or zippers on boots but those are nice. The triad design really works.

    Like I said above, me too! But when you have them on and zipped, you just don't see 'em. And at the end of the day - when boots are a b*tch to take off, it helps a lot!

    Always fascinated by the Morrison’s. Wesco Western toe Cannot be unstructured though? Right? They say it has to have a support.

    Brian did a killer Roper if you've caught the bug hard, I also contacted Brian but I just can't go the full mile when Wesco can get me within spitting distance. Speaking of which I just ordered a pair of horsehide Jobmasters and decided to order some Horween butt strips to make a matching belt and to show my fetish dedication I plan on Mexican braiding the belt in Roo lace. One has no idea of what's involved time wise, just doing a couple wallets has prepared me but the belt braiders charge 5 large!

    I've been rocking the Chukka/Desert boots for about the past year depending on the occasion (formal/casual), as it's moving into spring/summer the Clarks Originals Desert boots in various colours are making a big appearance.

    I just got 3 new pairs of Allen Edmonds. The 2 casual sneakers help dress down a leather jacket, but they go great with any old pair of jeans and shirt. For the price, AE shoes are incredibly well-built and they seem particularly durable.

    @Superfluous do you find the sole is bonded better to the canvas upper vs say a converse as per their marketing spiel? The big issue I have with converse is the sole always splits from the upper near the area adjacent to the ball of the foot.

    The Cabourns are definitely bonded better than Converse.
