I was awarded my colors this year (yay!!) and am in the process of updating my hunt coat-there’s definitely sticker shock from the buttons–and looking for hunt boots, dress boot with a black patent leather cuff.
I’m tall (5’9" with proportional legs), wear a size 8, and the calf width varies depending on brand (I fit a “full” when I tried on the Ariat Crowne). First, does anyone know of a site that has used patent cuff hunt boots? I haven’t had much luck with eBay. I am really trying to be frugal before I bite the bullet for customs. Second, if I’m going to get bespoke boots, what do you recommend?
Dehner seems to be a popular choice because of well-made boots and good customer service. My local tack shop sells them. My dear friend has Effingham boots, but she got them years ago. Other options I’m aware of include Der Dau, Konig, and E. Vogel. I would greatly appreciate some guidance!
