I wanted to resurrect this thread because I am looking for a nice boot and am deciding from amongst various english shoe makers. I had originally intended to get a Jodhpur with straps but am open to other styles too. I know C+J are obviously great quality, but what about Barker's, Charles Tyrwhitt (I think these are Loakes?) and Sanders? Any recommendations for a nice jodhpur are welcome as well. C+J pricing on their new boots are a little high, so what is the best option a step down from that?
I was just looking at the CT site, they have some nice models of shoes and seem to have G fits in all sizes, so seem very versatile.
How is the CT quality guys? Is it the standard Loake quality, with more expensive items akin to Loake 1880?
