They look great, Von Franz.
May I ask, when did you buy them? Last year? Can't seem to find the model on Purdey's website.
I would like an advice before buying a pair of harlech shoes.
I am big C&J fan (as many others here :-) and I have a few pairs now : connaught, edgware, millbank, chukkas and conniston
Living in Paris, I could never tried the harlech boots but.... I am going to London in a few days
I have already a pair of conniston and Indy boots so basically I don't need an other pair of boots for weekend. So my questions to the lucky harlech owner are :
Would you wear harlech boot with suit (blue or grey)?
For you what is the best store in London to buy them (advice and stock)?
Thanks very much and sorry for my poor english
@matsuito , I think that Harlechs are amazing (don't own a pair....yet). They are an awesome boot that would be super versatile. I DO think they would work with suits, but only on the casual spectrum. Like S K M said, they would work well with tweed. They would work with most casual outfits. Blazer and odd trousers. I would wear them to in situations with a suit, but then again I don't work in a formal law firm or something like that.
It depends on where you live too. Where I live, they would be considered super formal, since I live in a place where fashion is held in low regard. In NYC, things might be different.
Overall, I think they would be suitable anywhere you would wear a cap toe derby, as that is what they are going to look like when you've got pants on.
