my husband has couple of pairs and wears them with his boots in the office for jeans day
wears them at other times as well
don't believe one poster's knock on boots--
fitted right they are great and just as stereotypical a footgear as what most other people are wearing--

from what I read on-line == the new shoe for the male GQ dude out there is the logger boot with cuffed jeans to show the "right" kind of sole..

I have two pair of Dan Posts that feel great. I get more compliments when I wear my boots than when I wear my sperrys, loafers, or any other kind of "regular" shoe. I like the look of cowboy boots with correct cut pants, because it looks more uniform to me compared to some generic laced black dress shoes. I get compliments on my black lizard pair all the time, because they keep their shine perfectly and look good with dress pants.

Now, having said that, I don't wear my boots all the time. I like the look of traditional dress loafers as well. As long as you're not trying to force boots on yourself, nobody will think you're hokey.

Maybe not in Plano, but in real Dallas, you see people in boots all the time.

Real Texans don't quit wearing jeans and boots just because they have money.

they just buy handmade--not hand-me-down boots---

and hand-me-down comes not from the history of getting what your older brother/sister wore--but from people going into to stores and saying exactly that: "hand me down ----" and getting ready-made clothing vs custom clothing from a tailor or home-made clothing by family...
many times cowboys are the end of a trail drive would do just that--since they were pretty flush with their wages--go into store and buy new outfits by asking the clerk to "hand me down" jeans and shirts...

Texas Monthly's March issue has an article "The Bucket List." The article has 63 things all Texas should do before they pack it in.

Number 8 - Buy a pair of custom boots.

"Find a reputable shop and get in for a fitting."


Couldn't of said it better myself.

Henry was one of the last real bootmakers in the world. He originally made saddles but when the car came along he learned bootmaking. I got 4 pair before he passed away. B.F. Phillips of Frisco was his main customer. I asked Henry once "how many pair of boots have you made for B.F.?" he responded "over 100". His protege, Robert Grissom, loved Henry so much that he had his name legally changed to "Dutch Leopold". Ray Price was one of his customers. Ray and I have the exact last and Ray wouldn't come by to pick up a pair so Henry sold them to me. Saw Ray about 15 yrs ago and told him the story. I have a picture of Ray & I backstage. Long live Henry, (his boots do) and his wife Mary.

I have never saw anyone in the Oak Cliff part of Dallas wear boots in my life. That's a HUGE STEREOTYPE!

This thread is old! Although I will say I am thoroughly embarrassed that the OP is from Boston..Regardless, these people have moved on, like a tumbleweed blowin in the wind.

I love boots... I wear them to football games and to work on casual Fridays. I get my boots from Remington Boot Company. The owner is great to work with to get custom boots.
