Congrats on a fine purchase!

 

I actually thought the 365 last was more comfortable than the 325 (for boots).  Unfortunately, the Islay (365) is really bulbous and the welting is so inelegant and chunky...almost looks like a pair of Bata/Blundstones.

 

Coniston on the other hand looks far more refined, good for city and "country" use.

Yes I agree, I usually stick to Tricker's when it comes to boots but found they were too rugged for dressing up.

Coniston's are a winner all the way!

 

I also own a pair of Pembroke on the 325 last and I find the vamp area to be really uncomfortable.

I like the Coniston boot, but never found it to fit my foot particularly well.

I really enjoy the fit and sleeknes of Coniston. There is also the upside, that Purdy's versions are readily available, where both the dark grain and nubuck versions could serve as a middle ground between Coniston Tan, and Islay/Snowdon.

Only looking at the pictures, this winters C&J blue version was a faux pas imho - but there should be something for everybody's taste.

^ Yes, have had my eye on Purdey's dark brown grain version for a while -- may need to pick up before fall, though I'm also weighing the Snowdon.

Someone should MTO a Conniston in oxblood

 

DO IT :deadhorse:

post #6549 of 12786
^ Oxblood grain with commando sole?! Anyone?

Too elongated for my taste. Reason I quit buying Italian shoes.

That chestnut looks very dark for C&J

 

Have you darkened them with dark brown?

Nope, they haven't been wiped with anything but leather conditioner. I was also surprised at how dark they were out of the box, but my expectation is that they will lighten with wear. This is only the third time I've worn them.

Yeah, interesting...cause I have the monkton and the skye in chestnut and they are both lighter.

 

The monkton has more of a reddish hue...and the skye is more of a chestnut yellow brown color

 

I've not seen C&J chestnut that dark before...and yes they will lighten with time unless you polish them with like a dark brown
