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.

post #8117 of 12786
Sure thing, soender, and thanks. I got them two days ago, but they were introduced for F/W '13 and can sometimes not show up on the site. Not sure why, as they do seem to restock periodically.

Here's the link:

Kudos, Franz! I was getting around to pull on the nubuck coniston - but this has made me reconsider. Will mail them and ask, if they will stock them in my size.

Wish I had noticed these. I would prefer the slimmer last.
Thanks

Hi gents,

 

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

As stated probably a hundred times here on SF I really, really love my Harlechs so I understand your choice smile.gif However, I would never use them with suits of any kind or colour. To be fair, I could never pull off a suit and boot combo in the first place, but since this is both a derby boot, shell and has double leather soles I find it way to rustique to pair it with a suit. Unless, maybe, if it's a full tweed suit, if that's your bag. Good luck with the purchase! smile.gif

@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.

This is better than good advice. This is it nod[1].gif

Thanks, guys.

Laufer, I'm pretty sure it's the 325.
I followed the Lindrick sizing conventions from Namor's RL spreadsheet. These are UK9.5E; my U.S. size is generally 10.5D.
They fit well, with a comfortable, roomy toe.

Thank you so much. It seems to be a bit taller than regular coniston as it has 5 instead of 4 speed-hooks. I will be getting one of those boots too, 325 fits me fine.
Good choice and I am happy to hear that they fit.

No problem, L.
Looking forward to seeing them.
