Where did you see all that stuff? Is the 2nd image the fleece rancher?

Thanks hoit!

The mansion had one on the rack that looked as though Oscar the Grouch had returned it after a season on the street.

That's typical with the majority of their knits, unfortunately.

just to be clear on stretching: jeans stretch out about an inch in the waist.

Haven't posted in a while, but FYI, randomly checked the price of the murdock engineer boots today and they were down to 499 with only a few sizes left. Found a 10% discount code that got me down to 449. 488 shipped was an instant cop.
Looks like I may have got the last 10.5 though.

The new Bowery booots are on sale at 499 too. What do people think of these?

Bowery is also at 499.

I think if it's in your size, it's a good buy. I wasn't willing to buy it at $850, since, to me, it didn't seem like an $850 shoe. My guess is that Crockett and Jones makes it, and I love their shoes, but for a bench grade boot, I wouldn't pay $850. I ended up going with one directly from them instead, but $500 is definitely a good deal.

why do you think C&J makes them and not one of the other English shoemakers?

Thanks! Do you know if the bowery boots fit TTS?

I know a few years ago RL used C&J for their mid-high Italian shoes (Polo line), with Edward Green making the Purple Label shoes. EG is pretty much the best shoemaker in the world, or one of them. Now they've switched their high end from EG to another Italian maker, not sure who.

I guess RL dropped EG for a reason; C&J was the default choice probably to avoid Italian style boots.

The benchmade C&J line is still no slouch and better than 95% of shoes you encounter in stores. I'm tempted for sure.

How do the Bowery boots run?

When I saw it in person it looked a lot like C&J's work. The welt, stitching and sole all made me think C&J, but I could be wrong.

I don't know how they run, but I'd say short of C&J's hand grade stuff, John Lobb, Edward Green and other stuff in that price range, C&J's main line is hard to beat. At $850, that's kind of pushing into more expensive territory, but at $500, if it's C&J, you won't do any better in terms of quality. Also, I may have misunderstood your post, but Edward Green and Crockett and Jones are both English shoemakers, not Italian.

I also assumed they were C&J from looking @ the photos. Speaking of the Bowery, did they sell out?
post #10800 of 20877
Sorry I was referring to Polo's new shoemaker for purple label, which I think is Italian.

C&J is based in Northhampton so the Bowery is definitely made by them.
