    I have to admit that suede boat shoes seem like an oxymoron. If their original intend was to be near water, then seeing some in suede just makes me ask why they did that.

    @JC, while I prefer some of the others over that particular one ( the contrast stitching is pretty intense), I'd still rock the hell out of those. They are pretty sharp.

    I'm biased because I'm not into the look of suede boat shoes, but the contrast stitching seems a bit much.

    Man, those Fryes are gorgeous. Love the more rounded toe.

    Not as waxy a cxl (you've seen my fetishization of cxl shoes, plus I work with it), but definitely good. Very soft, minor pull-up qualities, probably ~4oz. Haven't had any issues with stitching (though as I said, I don't wear it a ton).


    I like cxl more because of the better pull-up effects, but this ain't shabby.

    What's the leather like? The thing I like about the Eastland, Quoddy, Rancourt, and Oakstreet is that they use Horween Chromexcel

    oh, and...sizing. I have a 12 in these frye's, while I'm an 11.5D in alden barrie last (with socks), OSB (verging on an 11), and AE 5-last (mctavish, verging on 11E). the 12 is good in these sully's.

    Ooo...those kill in blue, J. I'd wear my greenies quite a bit...if they weren't so...green. They're great shoes though.


    I just went back and checked the tan. Quite nice.

    That's a great price for those shoes. It's not quite what I'm looking for though.

    Thoughts on these? Seems like a decent deal...

    Ah, well click away and spend a fantastic 48 seconds with David Lynch and Lana Del Rey.


    I think I'll leave this thread alone since I feel I've balanced out the boat shoe caused depression in this thread now.
