I am in the market for a pair of chestnut / dark leaf oxfords and was initially considering the C&J Westbourne, until I came across Herring's website. Does anyone have any thoughts / experience on the following models: 1) Herring Macmillan (identical to Cheaney's Gielgud which is a wholecut, and I spoke to Herring previously who said they 'up-spec' (my words, not theirs) it and use a higher quality leather than Cheaney's model and is slightly cheaper because they pocket a smaller margin). 2) Herring Knightsbridge (Chestnut Burnished Calf) (I am aware this is made at the Loake factory, and Loake gets very little love on these forums!). 3) Herring Classic (similar to the Herring Knightsbridge above, but with the broguing. So it's essentially a price / quality ratio comparison between the 3 shoes above and C&J's Westbourne. Interested to hear your thoughts on the shoes, as with the shopping experience with Herring.
