I've sold every black shoes I had, now I want to buy a new black pair oxford shoes. I inteded to buy an EG Chelsea oxford, but I dont want to invest to much on a pair that I will rarely use. So I decide to go with C&J, but now wondering between the Lonsdale (last 363) or Audley (last 337). The Audley looks more classic and sober to me, but the Lonsdale is quite attractive. Please give me some advices.
Thank you and appreciate any suggestion.
I don't know if you've ever seen the 337 in person but I think the C&J website pics really don't do it much justice. In person it reminds me of (an obviously less well-finished) G&G MH71. I'm a big fan and I wish C&J made more on it (specifically hand grade capote dm's in burnished chestnut).
