Black casual oxford inspo/recommendation thread?

Should I get these?
>>
>>8572585
what are they
>>
>>8572891
RW Postmans by the look of them
>>
>>8572891
Looks like red wing postmans.
Also cop them OP.
>>
>>8572894
could you do like hard work in them like their boots? they seem to be made to hold up against a lot of shit
>>
I really like those shoes, apart from casual wear. do you think you could wear them with a suit to a wedding or to work?
>>
>>8572585
Those are derbies, not oxfords
>>
>>8572585
>wants an oxfords thread
>posts a blucher

well done

>>8573057

Meh, the websites always have them labeled as 'postman oxfords'

For the love of christ, those aren't oxfords.

Interested in wedge sole derbies, pref slightly bulky white plateau and black upper. Looking for a lower key version of the prada creepers.

>>8572585
I think they look a little plain man. Kinda skechers-vibe.

>>8573204
There's plenty of people who call those oxfords. Oxford vs. blucher/derby is not a universal usage, it's just people mindlessly repeating infographic knowledge.
>>
>>8573857
Thanks. I know of rw postmen, but I'd like them a bit more refined, not quite as rough work wear like
>>
>>8573874
>it's just people mindlessly repeating infographic knowledge.
Nope.

I have noticed however that every low end brand and retailers that sell products of a lower price range do this, whereas traditional shoemakers and pricier retailers don't.

>There's plenty of people who call those oxfords.
Perhaps. Read my previous point for the implication.

>Oxford vs. blucher/derby is not a universal usage
It's supposed to be, as it is a definite definition.
>>
Not OP but should I cop?
>>
>>8574033
wat
>>
>>8573874
oxford/derby is UK terminology.

balmoral/blucher is US terminology. in the US, an oxford is any lace-up shoe.

"traditional" (meaning: English) makers tend to use UK terminology. American boot manufacturers use US terminology.

RW Postmans
>>
>>8573874
I've always noticed a large difference. Derbies being much less formal than Oxfords in the way they are crafted and designed.
>>
>>8574087
they're leather is similar to docs leather
but the shoes are better constructed overall
if you can handle that leather
fine
>>
>>8574262
it's not similar at all lol
its chaparral leather i.e car seat leather
thats what makes them so sturdy

>>8574262

anyone got pics of postmans after some beating? i like them and want to buy something similar but i don't want to end up with something that looks like a shrivelled butt after 6 months of wear
>>
>>8574542
I'd show you some pics of mine but I can't be bothered to charge my phone kek
But I copped a pair for £30 from the 1980's and after a polish they look pretty much new except for a couple creases. Really pleased with them. Super comfy as well.

an oxford is any kind of laced shoe.

idiots+pedantry=the most annoying people on earth

While Balmorals may be called "Oxfords", both Derbies and Balmorals are ""types"" of oxfords. An oxford is simply any form of laced shoe. This is why certain sneakers may be referred to as oxfords, such as Converse's Core Ox and Sperry's Striper CVO (which stands for Circular Vamp Oxford).

>if this is what they turn into may as well buy docs for half the price
they'll all look like that eventually
it's just the nature of that particular leather they use

it wasn't built to be super good
remember it's based on a shoe made for postal workers to wear every day until they wear out ie. not for long term prospects/don't have to look nice for too long

corrected grained leather creases differently to natural grained leather
it doesn't crease as "well"
sometime they crease more and badly, sometimes they don't
when they crease badly the creases are where the first cracks will appear.

if you like them just buy them
they're more sturdy than docs
and it's not as if you'll live long enough to see the need to replace them
on account of your anal aids and all
you goddamn faggot
>>

>the 101 is crafted with Black Chaparral leather, a black cushion crepe and wedge sole for extreme sturdiness, underfoot comfort and a classic look.

100% different , they just seem similar 2 u bcuz ur a fucking inbred cunt
>>
>>8575045
the leather is of the same inferior nature you sperg

>>
>>8575085
>u literally just said that redwings last longer than docs???
i didn't say shit retard learn to read
i said they were better made as in stitching and insoles
but the leather is of the same shitty kind and is gonna crack and crease the same way

reading comprehension loser

>>8574992
nah man
if the left sole is way more worn at the ball then it's because of driving and shit

that's where i wear out my leather soles most: getting out of the car.

you step out, left foot out first, left shoe does that twisting scrape on the concrete or asphalt as you get the rest of you out of the car.
now i just get rubber soles

yuketen johnson boot

I have them but with a medallion on the toe and a different outsole. they're nice boots, don't pay full price for them though. I got mine around 300

they fit one size large and they're a little tight through the instep (I have a high instep so mine laced up a little oddly at first)

they are a f/w thing so there are none around right now but they may well bring them back for the next season.

There's the cheap postman, for actual postmen and policemen, which is CG, and there's the expensive heritage one, which is not. Those shoes aren't CG, though, they're just poorly maintained.

>>
>>8579396
Yeah, Agreeing with >>8579574, these r pretty messy. the neoprene ankle/heel guard is a little cool, but using leather that'll probably crease easy with roshe soles is a bad choice.

Nothing really close-minded or boring about hating these, if anything, they feel like they were made via a committee.

I like the idea, but execution and quality looks pretty bad
