Anyone can wear engineers!

Actually my back has been all f-ed up so no engineers for me :(

They really dont suit me.
Strange, my back hurts when I wear Vans over a too long time and my back feels good when I put on my boots.

Sounds like you guys figured out that proper support in your footwear makes a big difference. When I was a kid I could never understand why Vans and Chucks made my feet hurt so much. It wasn't until I got my first pair of Birkenstocks, and much later, my first pair of Wescos that I truly understood how important support is to my feet (and back).

Excellent twism ... looks like my FP1's (no kilties and the yellow laces) - the perfect look!  ;)

Does a shade kinda in between the brown domain and the burlap exist? I guess I'm looking for a slightly darker and slightly more yellowish burlap..

Peter, Wesco doesn't offer a shade of leather exactly like what you're looking for. Muskhaven (a Wesco dealer) offers a natural veg tanned leather that might be close. Also, if you look at pictures of smooth out Burlap that has been worn and aged (and maybe treated) it winds up looking a lot darker.

Hi Peter! There are a handful of pictures of the Burlap online after it has been worn. They do darken nicely. As mentioned, the Veg Tan is available as well! You can soak or oil the Veg Tan to get the darker look.

Thanks for providing answers, guys! I'm all about the rough out though, which I guess will evolve differently and not darken in the same way. Not a fan of dubbin either. Just checking really, still pretty keen on getting a pair of oxfords in burlap rough out when I've got the funds.

Burlap roughout will dark with age as well. It might not turn to exactly the color you want, but it will definitely darken.

Paging @urbanwoodsman

Not sure if you'd be in to these but they look like a good build to me if you could overlook some wonky stitching.  A bit loud but I'd wear the hell out of them.

I'm not into the Ketchup Red colorway or captoes. I'm still waiting for the right pair to pass through the seconds area
