Couldn't help but do a double take and laugh after seeing the loafers with the skinny bare legs.

Put some socks on dude!

Chukka Boots Day.. (Brecon)

 


A Little bit sturdy and not as elegant as other C&Js, but I love them. Perfect for the rainy days and still Business appropriate.

Found this at local BB. Its CJ made for the BBBF. Not sure about the design as I think it looks a little busy with the cap toe and the wing tip design, think it will be a hard to pull off as an every day shoe. Anybody else seen this shoe in person? I suspect its calf leather, but it looks and feels almost the same as the BB cap toe cordovan boot.

Seen online pictures of it before. IIRC I don't think they were described as cordovan.

This reminds me - I recently bought a plain toe derby in cavalry calf and I emailed C&J to ask what type of leather this is, how it withstands weather, and how I should care for it. Here is the reply from Pernilla:

"Cavalry Calf is a calf leather that has been treated the same way as Cordovan leather during the tanning process, it has been impregnated with cows fat to make the leather supple.

This do make the leather slightly more water resistant but not water proof.

You may care for this leather as you would standard calf."

Right. It's basically their version of corrected grain.

Thanks for the quick reply gents.

Question is now if I should snag them due to their design.

Nice comportment slick.. You might try and be kind once in a while. You don't know what people are going through in life. I was a top ranked National Masters runner. Sorry my body does not conform to your tiny meger paradigm ..

Thanks. I recalled that leather when I was at Leather foot. The SA there said that it will age like cordovan and it will have rolls oppose to creases. Not sure if he was just yanking my chain

Not sure. I wear a lot of khakis, so not sure if it will go with them.

FWIW I think the design is interesting. It reminds me of very old styles I've seen in shoe museums. There's something quite fancy about it, and you'll never see anyone wearing something similar.

My own personal opinion, it's not that great of a shoe. Not very versatile, very fashion forward and corrected grain.

It's true that corrected grain is easier to maintain, but wouldn't go as far to say that it's like cordovan.

Then again, if it's very cheap, why not?
post #11100 of 12818
^Yeah that is what I'm afraid of, with the whole fashion forward thing...thanks again all for the input.
