Have I been drawn into spending £500 on a pair of boots that may only last a couple of years? I mean I love the look of the boot but the longevity of the things was really the whole idea.
Could you put up a photo or two of your 18 month old pair? would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry, I was referring to that particular pair and not necessarily to their boots in general. My Eatons are 18 months old and in great condition; it's just my own pair of Stows that I meant.
They're actually four months old (barely) and have been worn 'hard' (in this case, walking maybe half a dozen miles) a couple or three times a week...and kept on trees with the leather being fed.
'Pologies for the poor colour quality:
It's the creasing like here that gives me food for thought, and I'll be keeping an eye on it....it was a picture of a well-worn pair of Stows earlier in this thread that inspired me to get these, but I wasn't expecting them to age quite so quickly:
Maybe I'm just being picky...

Am I the only person i the world who like my jeans to end as they were intended?! I know some turn them up to help the photo show off the shoe...
Hey - it's personal choice, no one is right or wrong!
Personal choice indeed, although I'd suggest that turn-ups were the way they were intended to be worn, so that each person could have them at their own preferred length.
Tailored jeans? Not for me...although if you're going to do it, at least get them chain-stitched!
