X-posted... My recent Barker Blacks

My contribution...
I suggest contacting John Lobb direct. Email Jean Lack at the factory shop to see if she can help you j.lack@johnlobb.co.uk The last time I asked, the cost was around £140. Going to a store will obviously cost more.
I guess it's easier if you come from England - it's pronounced "bew-lee". In France, where it originated - it's pronounced "bowl-lew". So the education came useful for something
I suggest you try these from Saphir. I use the Ouraline on my boots and they come up great. http://www.valmour.com/cleaning-leat...es-7-grease-77
These are my Luffield's in Plum Museum. They don't have such distinct mottling as the other shoes posted. Great colour though!

It's possible, but not always the case. Cheaney will make shoes under special order - they will make up shoes to whatever specification is requested. If you find a pair with closed channel oak bark soles, and you like them, just buy them - you won't regret it!

You may wish to look at the Herring Shoes website for Cheaney. There are a number of ranges, including one specifically for Herring. The Avantgarde range is described as having a "more contemporary twist, both in the design and last shape". Some of the Signature range do have closed channel oak bark soles - I've got some myself. Construction across the current range doesn't differ too much - they are all well made, however better leather is used the more expensive...
