i have these APC calf skin boots but the crepe sole is haggard, and I want to know if they can be resoled with a vibram white one, or even at all.

Mil - Def Yay with your dress down Friday PRL stuff. Quality of Timberland is pretty appalling these days in my experience though.

How original Rez.

I would wear that yellow mac all day long before I'd be seen dead in those ugly fucking shoes.

They might hand rear llamas and use Alpecin shampoo so the hair grows back thicker.

I was thinking with XXL jeans and a big ass coach jacket would look cool?

re: quality. In the pics they look almost misshapen and that seam doesn't look too straight. But I got some waterproof chuckas with the oilproof off white sole a couple of years back and I thrash em all the time for hikes and dirty jobs and they hold up great.

Just took a punt on some Mr Hare oxfords that were in TKMaxx. The brand has gone to the wall in the last few months.

They were hyped on here for a while. Anyone have a pair? What's the quality like? Supposed RRP is mental.

I laughed at the name - rural was waxing lyrical about them at the time.

Yea rural loves them, but he loves uniqlo and tkmaxx these days. Think he's given up on 'fashion' when he hit 30 odd.

They started off well (Derbies) but the leather has slightly creased around the toe area even when using shoe trees.
