    Here's my problem: it seems like most people who have actually TRIED these boots are saying that there are noticeable quality/durability issues. That might be OK, since they're cheaper than some alternatives. But is $200 really that cheap for a shoe with well-documented issues? For what's essentially a stepping stone shoe--i.e. something that won't last forever and will probably be eventually replaced by the more expensive, full-quality solution?

    I'd rather not spend $200 for something that I know has problems with it and will eventually be replaced. But for $50 (i.e. the Stafford Deacon)? Absolutely. Otherwise, I think this is a waste of money.
    Can you provide links to these many opinions? I've seen very few reviews, the only ones that are overly negative are generally from Reddit where those that dislike the majority of things go to vent. The couple that I've seen have a generally positive impression.

      That's because there aren't any. I searched them extensively before I bought from them, and I was able to find two full reviews (both very positive) and the Reddit string (and like i said before, was from the kick starter, mainly based off a boot that they were comparing to an Alden Indy). That's was about it. But there seems to be a lot of people willing to say that they aren't worth the price, but have no personal experience to offer. Not sure where that comes from. The pair of boots I received are well crafted, and look great all around. The leather was not shiny cheap looking, but actually a little dull and matte and it polished up great. Its definitely genuine leather. Really comfortable too.They aren't an Alden Indy or an AE Dalton, but you're not paying for that either so it's to be expected. The soles aren't Dainite, but they are good and durable. I've worn them on some nasty tough surfaces with minimul wear and tear. So IMHO you're getting a steller mid range GYW boot. Definitely worth the price. I have the Deacons as well and I love them, but I expect these Scouts to outlast them for a good while. You can can find a better boot if you're willing to move up to three bills or sale hunt hard. But sometimes that extra hundred puts you out of your range. Also in my personal experience with Thursday I received GREAT customer service. Sometimes they were slow getting back, but I talked to them extensively about their product before I purchased, and they senr me a free care kit. All imo though.

        I wish I could say the same about their CS. I just had two very different experiences between the Captains and the Commanders. Captains for $200 were great purchase, although I will likely upgrade to nicer (and 2x as expensive) AE boots this coming fall. No issues through lots of wear. They look great and are holding up great. No regrets there. Same with the wallet I bought. I love the wallet. But as I mentioned before, the Commanders were very poor quality, with tons of issues, and CS is making returning them impossible.

          Im a fan of Thursday Boots, Bought 2 pairs of this brand ( the Captain and President). They are so comfortable and durable. And I also recommended my friends to buy these boots.

            I bought a pair of brown captains and found them really disappointing. There were flaws all over them, including gashes all along the side of one boot that looked like it had been made by the machine that stitched the welt. Some of the stitching was ugly and there were scuffs all over them. Also I tried them on and walked around on carpet for 30 seconds and they got very ugly creasing that is far worse than you expect from decent leather. I was very suspicious of the leather quality.

            I contacted their customer service and provided photos and asked if it was normal (this was to be my first pair of "good" boots) and they stopped responding to me completely after that. Prior to ordering, when I had fit questions, they were very prompt. Thankfully I purchased them through amazon so I didn't have any problems returning them. But I would not recommend you do business with this company. I have since bought a pair of Wolverine 1000 Mile boots, J Crew Kenton boots and Allen Edmonds Dalton boots, all for $150-200, and all have aged well and are far better than the TBC were. If you're at that bargain price point, check out the J Crew boots on sale.

                I have two pair of their boots. The Diplomat in Horween natural chromexcel and the Scout in whiskey. Both are solid boots and I still maintain that the majority of negative reviews are from people that have never seen any of their boots in person. Also from people that generally dismiss any online shoe startup. Admittedly, I have not tried their brown "Thursday Chrome," though, so I cannot comment on the creasing. As far as construction goes, the boots feel solidly built. I've had the scouts since around spring of 2016 and the diplomats since maybe spring of this year. Both are worn somewhat regularly, but the diplomats have been worn more frequently of late.
