If IIRC, it's like 50% up, no? It is quite substantial though which alwayed turned me off.
Today: C&J Cottesmore
See problem I find with C&J is the colours, not enough shades available in handgrade. In my quest for my first pair of proper leathers since 'forever'... I am now focusing on CJ (although I may slip and go for the GG Wilmores)
I am not considering their other levels because I have a thing for closed channeled soles, open channeled with exposed threads on leather soles drive me crazy more than 'rubber' soles. I am considering either a wholecut or boot/chukkas. And as Ive discovered they no longer make the scarsdale.. so only wholecut that is available is the wyemouth, but the non shiny calf leather is not a fav of mine... antiqued calf is so much better.. for that reason I like the portman...but not the buckle although it is small and is probably going to be hidden underneath my jeans.
Btw they have a better handgrade boot collection in their french line..cowdray and somerville. The front of the shoe has a much more elegant flow to it as compared to its british counterpart which I think would be the chelseas but the various chelseas do not come in handgrade btw. how odd.. basically they do not have a handgrade boot in the UK....
