those look cool. And you all know what I think about boots... ;)

I've seen here so many girly shoes on men that I wouldn't even want to mention it.  :-X

Barun I would offer this; if you get suede wesco's and plan on wearing any more box fresh IH jeans beware that the indigo will stain the top of the boots, sadly.  However on the upside I would stick to black or dark brown in this style as they look great.  I am ordering a couple of pairs one will be that model the other the boss.

Simon, I have run into this problem with my Iron Rangers.  They are now almost a tan and indigo camouflage from my jeans.  It is a good thing to keep in mind, I may actually order them with the shaft leather and the rest rough out (as pictured)

I definitely don't think they look girly but if you were to see me, I don't think girly is something that would come to mind.

Me and G against the world on these I guess!  Thanks G (and IJ)

I think the size and/or angle of the pic is the only thing that might make these look a bit "girly" to some.  Personally, I kinda like them, too.  I doubt WESCOs could look anything other than badass.

Barun I never said they look girly, I said "what's wrong with girly?" in response to someone else who thinks they look girly, I think they look smashing!  See posts above.

Simon, I know, sometimes it's hard to display sarcasm on here.  I think they look smashing as well.

Ok, a few questions here.  I visited bakershoe and looked at the custom Wesco page here:  http://www.bakershoe.com/clothing.cfm/department/mens/gear/bootsshoes/product/custom-wesco-jobmaster/
Is the price correct?  A customized pair with the same price as their regular offering?
How does Wesco compare to Whites?  I am a 8.5 in Redwings and generally a US9, am I a 8.5 in Wesco as well?
