I need an affordable version of these boots. The RRL version would bankrupt me.
William Lennon derby boot, 124 english pounds:
At 124 GBP that's a good deal and a lovely boot.
Okay, here's some pics of my budget M&S boots at 50 GBP, which I think is a good deal! I've put some original vintage boot laces from the 40's onto them.
Remember, this thread is for EVERYONE, whatever their disposable income (it's not a contest), as sadly not all of us are fortunate enough to afford custom made boots or one's of great cost [huh] (especially in today's economic downturn).
So this is *trying* to cater for all budgets, and point members in a direction that suits them, if a pair of 'dress boots' is your sort of thing
So share and enjoy! thanks Gents.
Very nice finishing off especially the square tie off where the vamp joins lacing. M&S stuff is great IMHO.
Meet me at the bottom... bring me my boots & shoes!
Excellent imagery! This begs the question, where is the definable line between boots & shoes?
Anyone know if the bulbous cap toe is called a bulldog toe? I saw someone mention that once on ebay but never before or after.
Yep, bulldog boots. I've got an explanation somewhere in a book, I think.
Edit: No, I don't. They're just called bulldog boots in there, square, high or bulbous toebox.
The definable line between boots and shoes is below the ankle I suppose(?)
If it covers the ankle, it's a boot. If it's cut below the ankle bone, it's a shoe.
If I print these out and bring them into Edward Green, do you think they'll do price matching?
In addition to the Grensons mentioned by Paddy
in the beginning of this thread:
I came across these recently:
A fairly recent model I guess.
The more I look at 'm the more I begin to like 'm.
Great sturdy look, right curve in the nose,"Honey" colour.
There's also "the Archie brogue" along the same lines.
Stanley's not bad, either.
I would pay modern prices for those styles.
I'm looking forward to seeing the Allen Edmonds Titanic dress boots! Hopefully updates will be posted soon since the initial post was from early in 2009.
Two words for that type of boot: Olive--Oyl. :eusa_doh:
Deadstock, 1930s (but the box is much more recent), outstanding! http://cgi.ebay.com/VINTAGE-MENS-BL...iewItemQQptZVintage_Shoes?hash=item45efbb0e84
Wow. Just ... wow. http://cgi.ebay.com/Extremely-Rare-...iewItemQQptZVintage_Shoes?hash=item35a53d9b43

Allen Edmonds dress boots for Fall 2010
Some details on Fall 2010 boot offerings from Allen Edmonds in a thread at AAAC:
Now as a general rule my opinion is that all of the good boots of the world are way too overly priced, especially the work boot based ones, even though I am a big fan (own black cherry RW GT's) . However, I have to admit that if I had the extra money I'd own those black cap-toed RRL boots. I always knew that boot must exist somewhere. Thanks for posting them.
Here is a pair of wonderful, very rare men's dress boots from the mid-1890s. Enjoy: http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-Edwardi...ptZVintage_Men_s_Clothing?hash=item45efd2c284
if possible, in brown:
