NY”s Epaulet gets involved again with bootmaker Thorogood. “Introduced in the 1950′s, Thorogood’s No. 685 Boot was billed as the Job-Fitted Work Shoe for Farm Wear. Epaulet is proud to re-introduce this classic boot as an exclusive collaborative style! Using the original styling, we’ve updated the details with a few modern twists and created a rugged, handsome, long-lasting, and affordable piece of true Americana. Outside of its great history and lineage, we’re confident that this boot delivers more value than all of the similar products at this price point.
Each piece is meticulously crafted in Wisconsin with a rich brown Horsehide leather from Chicago’s famous Horween tannery and a Goodyear-welted cork-filled Neoprene sole. 144 units are available for Fall 2010 – all of which are exclusive to Epaulet. This boot will age beautifully over time and last for years. Its rich horsehide exterior will develop a unique patina that gets better the more you wear it. Here’s all the details
