@Beane my Tetbury boots in dark brown suede have worn in nicely after 12 months and don't have any obvious "ogly creases".   While Tetbury boots may be a common sight in the UK and the USA, they're an extremely rare boot in wilds of New Zealand down under and often receive compliments.  You can't go wrong with either Chelsea 3 or Tetbury -- both are fine ankle boots.

Hi all I'm new to this board. I was wondering I picked up a pair of burgundy Hallam C&J at the weekend and wondered if anyone knew if that combo was made for a specific market as I'd not seen them before or if they were a custom combo?

Where'd you get it?

Sounds like a seconds MTO

From the factory shop they are indeed seconds.

Looks like an embossed calf but I haven't see that in their selections...at least not that I remember
post #8142 of 12830
perhaps but it looks too rough to be embossed. im guessing its a hardier leather from bull, elk, elephant, manpigbear, etc

you in italy? love your bestettis! let me know when you get sick of them happy.gif

Thanks, for the creases I was talking about the nubuck model.  The Tetbury suede don´t have that problem.

It is some hard wearing cow based leather. These were very popular in Australia in the 70s and 80s. Meant to be worn with tweeds and that British/Scottish rustic look then so contemporary and on the way back according to SF.
