What do you wear them with?

I always find plain derby shoes a bit difficult to team with. Somehow they are not the first choice when I have to wear a suit, yet they feel too formal for a casual outfit .. So never bought one like those ..

I normally wear them with a grey suit.

How long do you have those Islays? Are they holding well? Heard couple of stories with speed hooks falling off ..

Am thinking of ordering either them or Coniston from Purdey ..

I've had them for about a year.  I don't wear them all that often as the weather here isn't usually suitable.  I haven't had any issues with them though. None of the speed hooks even feel loose.  I just checked based on your question.

Great, thanks for letting me know. They are lovely looking boots. Love the shape and brougue-ing.

Thanks.  I quite like them. I just wish it was cooler here more often. :)

Can someone please explain to me what the numbers on the C&J Dainite Heels mean (3 3/8 etc) and what is the correct number for the Islay boot?

I think those are the size of the heel in inches. The correct one would depend on the size of your boot

Are these the numbers you are referring to?

Yep, that's the one. Just noticed it was different on my Brecon boot and Norwich shoe even though they are both 7.5E. Was wondering what it was for an Islay size 7.

I can check my 7E Islays for you tomorrow, if you like.

That would be appreciated, many thanks.

I know this is probably not the best place to ask but I am sure the Gents here would know.

 

I have a pair of Peal & Co for BB boots, Cordovan Burgundy color I like to wear them as my kick arrounds and would like to achieve a Matte finish on them if possible as they have a natural shine that lasts for ever  ( seemingly ) is there an easy way to achieve a Matte finish?
