Close ups of a pair of bespoke Cleverley lazyman oxfords and also a pair of St Crispin's Russian leather chukkas. As you will see they have fixed the often seen uneven wearing

They also do a mean sponge and press

Nice work, indeed.

How convenient are they for travellers? I assume they can pick up from hotels-- do they have reasonably fast service, and do they also do shirts well?

Not sure how they would work for travellers. Stephen usually picks up from my home and then drops off again a few days later

Don't think they do shirts - at least not when I checked last. PM me if you want their details

Monty, how is the leather on those SMs? Thanks for the heads up, btw.

Horween NB's.
Would have never paid the ridiculous full price for these, but got them for a song. Super comfortable

Getting reacquainted with these today

^nice!

+1 on the joy of getting reacquainted with a well-fitting older pair that's been unworn for a while

There's not too many classic-looking, rubber-soled and shearling lined true winter boots on the market, so I'm adding these photos that may help others decide if this Wolf model from Loake is the right one for them. The true colour shade is close to Tricker's acorn, I think, and I'm wondering how well the fur will stay in place with the years to come Note: these are slight seconds.
