I agree, as I mentioned, 'it depends on what you will use them for'.
With respect to comfort, I have the above pair in suede as well, I doubt RM's will be as comfortable as those. For everyday use the C&J's stand up well but I wouldn't play football in them or go far in the Australian outback in them either.
Whilst I like the shape of the Craftsman boot, I really do not like that ridge line they have running down the centre of the upper. However they are 3/4's the price of C&J, you pays your money you make your choice as they say.
IMHO most Chelsea's with the correct toe shape look nice with jeans though
