If you can, you may not for very long.

 

 

The cost of shell is going one way, UP UP UP!!!

Cheviot look very very nice, a traditional but refined longwing.
It's the same identical pattern as the cj black fleece longwing.

I've had excellent results with beautiful patina build up using neutral polish on tan shoes. Sadly I no longer have the shoes to show but it almost looks a bit like whiskey. I think some people's opinion tends towards colour polish as when the shoe flexes neutral tends to leave an off white polish dust.

Excuse me if these have been posted already. Looks like new C&J models went up in the last week or so. (Since I last checked)

Really like these.

Burgundy shell longwing. (Holy shit! And that's coming from a guy who's ambivalent on longwings)

Crat - how do you like your C&J Somervilles? Which last is your pair on?
post #7693 of 12827
Love my Somervilles, 363 last.
Two years ago I wan contemplating an EG Shannon MTO with moustache vamp (like galway) and swann neck but no broguing, 82 last. Would have had to be top-drawer and in the end I got a Galway instead. Made the right choice. Apart from the moustache vamp and the swann neck the Somerville is almost identical to the Shannon I had in mind and a much cheaper option. I think CJ discontinued dark brown however, though you might be lucky of you get your hands on a pair next sale.
