Came across these in my hunt for suede chukkas. What do you guys think? I normally don't like oiled suede but i think it looks nice on this boot. Also, they're not much more expensive than the LL Bean's I was gonna buy. They're made by Loake for Herring. -226

The Beans, on the other hand, look like they could be worn with anything from jeans and T to a cotton/linen suit. Yea, the Crew's are a bit sloppy looking now that I really compare the two. Thanks for sealing the deal for me. -226

I wanted to get the teal Casco Bay, but I needed something red. -226
^^^ I would say 1 and 3. The colors in the second are too similar to the first IMO. -226

Ok, I need a pair of inexpensive tan suede chukkas for spring/summer. I can't spend $400 on Aldens right now, so I'm forced to look elsewhere. The two options I've narrowed it down to are the LL Bean Signature Buck Chukkas and the J Crew MacAllister What do you guys think? Or if you have any other suggestions I'd love to hear them. (no Clark's Desert Boots though, I'm not a fan) -226
I'm feelin' my cap-toes more. Maybe it's because of the horrible branding on the side of those, but I do think the cap-toe on the Katahdin is a nice touch. I think it helps set it apart from other "work" style boots. (see Red Wing GT) -226

For me, the fit...
Well, I gave the polos a shot and I'm actually quite impressed with them. The fit is spot on for me, the length isn't too short but doesn't have a huge drop tail. The fabric is very good as well. IMO, for $30 they can't be beat. FTR I bought the Casco Bay polo in red fade and the Saltwash polo in drake blue. If they expanded their range of colors/patterns, I would probably never buy another Lacoste polo. -226
