Antique Daoust Boots

Antique Daoust Boots

We estimate these Daoust Ruf Rider (logger-style) boots as 1950s-era. Lots of signs of age; these are far from new condition (like 70 years far). The leather is (especially on the foot/ toe) dry and aged, and there is oxidation on the hardware. The original…

Are you too big for these britches?

Are you too big for these britches?

Okay, people. These here vintage britches (try saying that three times fast) have a patina of age, a patina of wear, and a patina of mystery. Despite their age, which is apparent from every angle, the leather is still soft, thick, flexible, and wearable. You’ll be wanting to put them on and wear them for the next 70 years.

Let’s answer the burning question … Are you too big for these britches? Or too small? Or just right?

Exactly a 38 inch Waist (Fashion size 36?). Thighs 26 inches. Some booty room. Just below-knee length, depending on where you keep your knees. High rise (of course).

Item #10829
Starting price $250.00
Breeches Era: From our research, we think West German, WWII or only slightly later. (possible Pilot’s uniform)
“Zipp” brand fly zipper.

Frye Engineer Boots

Frye Engineer Boots

These Frye boots have been around the block. They’ve been around, like, a few hundred thousand blocks. They’re what you’d call “weathered” or, for the less tactful among us, “thrashed to hell”. These boots were made for walking, and walk they did… and run… and…

Pack your feet into some Packers

Pack your feet into some Packers

Beautiful pair of White’s Packers that just walked in here a half-hour ago. A bit of scuffing, but structurally sound (and personally, I think the little bit of wear & tear looks cool). Nice brown leather, Euro size 40, with good soles and an even…

This Vanson Comet is out of this world!

This Vanson Comet is out of this world!

I’m not usually a big fan of brown leather (all black, all the time. Dress to depress) but one look at this Comet and I’m a believer. That patina! That beautiful, shiny patina!!! This particular shade of brown is probably best described as a combination of “melty milk chocolate” and “obscenely expensive mahogany furniture”. Pretty amazing.

Men’s Large, with cute zips. This is one of those tried-on-twice jackets, so it’s essentially brand new; still has the Vanson tag and everything. It retails over $700 CAD, but we’ll let you have it for $589 or less.

(Shoutout to our handy dandy folding chair for being such an exceptional model for this photoshoot.)

Frye Boots that are Star-Crossed Lovers

Frye Boots that are Star-Crossed Lovers

These brand-new, unworn Frye boots have been through a lot to be together. Their parents tried to keep them apart. Their clans and tribes were rivals for the podiatrical love of the buying public. Everyone said it would never work; that this was a pairing doomed from the start. “You’re too different!” They’d wail.

But they persisted in their desire. They said they felt the love for each other in their very soles. They knew they could counter on each other. They didn’t need to toe any old line.

They knew they were perfectly right for each other. And left. Also they were left for each other.

Size 42 / men’s 9 / women’s 10.5
Item # 271111
Brand new, unworn.
$67
(The price of a boring old perfectly matching pair would have been about $400 CAD)

(Plain language: These boots are both brand new, both exactly the same brand, size, leather type, and warm brown colour. The lasted toe shape is identical, as is the heel height and shape. The styles of the uppers, however, are somewhat different.)

Exotic Leathers in Search of a Rock Star

Exotic Leathers in Search of a Rock Star

Now, I myself came of age in the late 1970s and early 80s, and it’s important to note that, because you’ll understand what’s in my mind when I look at this jacket. I wonder what David Lee Roth is doin’, you know? I think, Robert…

Fresh delivery this morning!

Fresh delivery this morning!

As so often happens, a carload of consignment leather and boots just arrived this morning as we opened the store.

We lined up the boots (all sizes) and stacked the leather (mostly pants and chaps, some jackets), and now we’re going through it all to find out what we’ve got here.

I’m excited, aren’t you? I wonder what we’ll find….

MOMA Boots, Western-style

east-side-rerides-aug2015-2015-08-18 13.31.00These MOMA boots sell for about $500 US new, and I can see why. They are FANCY. They are comfortable (of course I tried them on!) They are leather lined, and fit your feet the way Billy The Kid’s gun holster fit his favourite six-shooter.

If you’re ever on your way to the Wild West, take these boots. They’ll save your life in a pistol-packin’ showdown, because the other cowboy will be staring your feet with his mouth open.
