I have a pair of St Laurent motorcycle chelseas. I like them, but I prefer my Trickers lambourns, which were cheaper and better quality leather. Also check out Loake if you want something even cheaper, but still respectable.
I'm thinking about getting a Moto 2011. This will be my second jacket, my first one being the Minimalist Double Rider in black lamb. I was thinkign about getting calfskin for the Moto, also in black. Anybody else got opinions on this combination, in general?
What do you think about black zippers?
I usually wear a US 11 in most shoes and boots, and I ordered a 10uk in 8-eyelet solovairs. With a thin sock they are a bit loose, but with heavier wool ones they fit pretty nice. As you probably know, you just pull the laces tight and that generally prevents heel slippage for the taller ones. The aesthetic is a bit different from Doc martin's, though.
