Just to comment on the MacAlister/clarks debate. I bought the oiled leather brown desert boots, and so far after 4 months I am nothing but impressed with the quality and how well the shoes are breaking in.

I was wondering how those broke in. Glad to hear good. 1 question, though. How bright is the luster on them?

Anyone know if Jcrew is having any sales soon? Or does anyone have a 20% coupon they are willing to part with or I can purchase? Let me know. Thanks.

To each their own I suppose.

the mcallisters are (were?) made in italy and definitely feel more luxe and have a better silhouette than the clarks imo. the suede is better quality on the ones i own and it definitely dresses up better.

Maybe its my monitor but those definitely don't look herringbone nor do they look anything like the blown up pic.

I wear a 15 neck and 32 or 33 sleeve since I don't like them very long.

I have Mccalisters and definitely like the shape better.

Wow, I'm surprised you tall guys can fit into this stuff. I guess I prefer my sleeves and body length to be longer on stuff. I'm 6'2 180 lbs. I wear a 16.5 collar and 34/35 arms. I can't fit into anything less than a Large at J.Crew. I recently picked up some crew neck pocket tees (2 large-tall and one large) The large talls fit pretty good, the regular large is just about perfect, barely cutting it on the length. The Henleys I needed to size up to the XL because the Large was body and sleeves were too short. There's no way I could fit into a small, let alone a medium.

Truth. The more I look at pictures the more I like the Barbour better than the two Belstaff jackets I'd been looking at. And, hey, it's cheaper. How often does that happen? Bonus.

I have stone macalisters and the heel is a little bit shorter then the clarks and also the height of the leather part covering the ankles. They're very comfortable though and look great

^That Fair Isle is definitely looking good!

Just to update my previous comment, they are 3 months old. Ive worn them for 10-20 times. I also have hand rubbed a thin layer of mink oil on them. The picture is for you to judge.

Im hoping they keep fading as there going to get a ton of wear this fall.
