Thanks, glad I signed  up and while I don’t have any IH jeans yet.  I recently scored a very lightly worn IH type 1 jacket.  It’s the black overydye collab IH did with Pronto from Thailand in like 2017 I think. 

Definitely will post about it once I get some fades goin,  looks good with my new black Warrens for sure.


It’s interesting how my Warrens ended up being jobmasters in disguise.  The Warren has to be the most versatile for customizing of all the Wescos.  Although, I did see some interesting jobmasters on the Wesco Japan blog —  like this one with a MP toe.  Just wild how many different looks each option provides"A90C4857-703E-4C1A-9347-A619E460323D.jpeg"

I'd love a pair of Wesco custom builds, but my negative experience with Viberg has put me off. So many variables that can go wrong.

If I could guarantee a perfect for I'd go for it.

Exciting build @Appfaff

Shorty Morrison on that sole makes for a roper that would be at home on the catwalk. Stylish stuff.

What is your concern? There many experienced Wesco enthusiasts here and in Gosport who could help you hammer something out I think.

Wesco’s lasts are not “roulet” like Vibergs.. I don’t think you would need a custom last to get a good fit. Order a few try in boots from Giles and see what size works best and then customize a platform you like.

Thanks guys!! They were influenced by multiple boots I have always loved but could never justify.

It took a while because the 2060 is not a sole Wescos traditionally stocks - and maintaining the Morrison profile with some boss bits and details was fun.

I finally skipped them on and immediately they are like slippers - insanely comfy but even more than other boots with similar soles due to Wescos liberal use of leather in the footbed.

Exceptionally happy as they are Black Tie Domain RO so the inside is as luxurious as the exterior!

Little details like khaki stitching behind the back pull and untreated natural welt I thought made them shine
