I've decided on (and bought) a surplus pair of Wesco Romeos with the raptor sole. They had a pair in a 10 1/2 E for only  $169... What a fortuitous find!

I was a little hesitant to drop a grand on a pair of boots I had zero experience with. Also, I'm itching to build a new gaming PC that is gonna cost a small fortune. So this was a great compromise.

The Romeos kind of look like this stock image below and were $100 cheaper than being sold online. I highly suggest going to the discount boots section of the website and seeing if they might have something there for you. I was all set to put in my order today and wanted to see the 3 different kinds of leather in pictures, so I went there and found the Romeos.  8)

@Giles, how are those Scarpa's you wear? are they true to size, have you had to break them in at all?

Im walking up snowdon at the end of April and looking into a pair of approach type shoes. Not sure I'll need boots that time of year.

I absolutely love them.  I have 2 pairs of Mojito's (one pair suede and one pair nylon) and a pair of Zen Pro (slightly more aggressive sole than the Mojito), I'd 100% recommend them and no breaking in required.

Thank you @Giles, Just the answer I was looking for.

I wonder how long until I get a blow out? Hopefully I can get another 5 months out of these before I need to do some reinforcements. I'm going to be so busy at work the next 5 months. I won't be home much. It's only February and I'm already out on 5 jobs.

Only on the grey and black buffalo check (IHSH-131). I used black thread and threw a few stitches at each end of the relevant button holds. Takes a bit of time, boring af, but a simple, near invisible fix that does the job.

^ I did this same thing to an old IHSH-46 I had a few years ago (pics in the alterations thread) - it kept the buttons closed and kept the older threads from starting to break.

Anyone out there have a photo of a chain stitch hem where the stitch runs off the edge of the hem?

I believe Nudie used to do this, maybe Trophy Denim too.

That's from the Studio D'Artisan Tokushima jeans, 2016 version.  The pic came from Heddels.

@Giles what was the name of the now defunct brand from Haraki san? There was a pic of a jacket you cherished, if I recall... (Not TW)

Yup, that's it. Maddy was curious about some IH history

There should probably be a new thread called "Random questions that I'm best off not knowing the answer to". This would be in there...

This pic is taken from Haraki-san's FB. It looks like a long wallet. Is it? Does anyone have details? And here's the really dangerous one, does it come in some kind of tan?  :'(
