whites east west apparel semi dress distressed roughout swing last

White’s Boots x East West Apparel Semi Dress in Distressed Roughout: ~$810

A Semi Dress with a twist: rather than being built on the usual 55 last, East West ordered these to be made on the seldom-seen Swing last, an appealing Munson-inspired last for those of us who have a lot of width in the forefoot area. (These cost a pretty penny if you’re purchasing outside the UK or Europe, but for a unique White’s makeup that’s ready to ship, I’d say they’re worthwhile if you’ve been looking for this kind of boot.)

These are made on the 445 last with Ridgeway soles. These pairs will only get made if at least six orders are placed, so grab your buds to make ‘em happen!

Alden x Signet “JP” Indy Boot: ~$696

Filipino retailer Signet is 1) a wondrous benevolent Patina Thunderdome sponsor, and 2) very good at Alden makeups. These 379X-lasted handsewn tan calf Indys with the now-popular (wonder why…wink emoji) heel foxing look fantastic. 270 storm welts and commando soles make these a winner for sure.
