Durability Pt. 2

Today was the first day I walked outside and wasn’t instantly reminded how much I dislike Florida’s weather. There was a nice breeze, and no humidity – this is definitely something we do not see a lot of down here, so I took advantage of it. My Columbiaknit x Arch Clothing crewneck has been getting a lot of wear, and will be getting even more here as the weather cools down. The RRL buckle-backs are crafted from a heavy duck canvas and put together extremely well with a straight leg fit. I’ve been trying switch out my jeans every now and then, so these get some wear – and to keep it different. Red Wing work oxfords… what more can I say? It took me forever to track these down in my size, and I could not be happier with them.

Daily Necessities: Redwing Heritage Chukkas

Maybe I have a slight obsession with Red Wings, and they honestly haven’t gotten enough praise here on Simple Threads. Ultra durable rough-out leather in a really awesome sage (more like grey) color, Good-Year welted, with a traditional off-white crepe sole that makes long days on your feet not so painful.  Worn by carpenters and wood-workers, these were crafted for the not-so-rugged gentleman. These go amazingly well with my Left Field duck canvas pants and will definitely get better the more I wear ‘em.

Oak Street Bootmakers – Navy Trail Oxfords – 3 Months In

Well, I think it’s time for some pictures of these beauties. These have rarely left my feet since the day I got them, and there’s a reason for that. I don’t think there is much else to say, besides the fact they’re still going strong and only look better the more worn in they get. I think it’s the way I walk, but I’ve been absolutely destroying this Vibram soles – other than that, they look brand new minus a few scuffs & scratches. I plan to take them to the cobbler next week and have the scuffs dyed with navy dye, but I wanted to take some shots of them beforehand.
