I'm not saying AS Excl is bad, just it looks flimsier to me.

For the AS Handgrade/MTO, I was quoted £669 (ex VAT) which translates to US$1065 ex works; are they worth that much?! confused.gif


So AS Exclusive is considerably better quality than C&J Benchgrade?

 

I'm very interested in these:

They are both good quality; AS Ex has channeled soles, and the leather upper is softer; is softer better?   I'm not an expert.

Pricewise it is close to the handgrade.

Even I do not know at what forum still to ask.

Received a call from C&J Burlington Arcade about half an hour ago, my Skye 2 boots arrived in store yesterday and will be posted today. I'll probably be getting them early next week.

Nice. How much were they after the recent price increase?

Anyone own the Coniston boot and the Tetbury? I own the Coniston and I'm wondering what size I should order for the Tetbury. You guys think it's OK to order online, or should I try it on?

I wear the same size in both the 325, 341 and 348 last.

Order the Tetbury in the same size. Tetbury is 348 last and fits well if you're used to the Coniston.
Order online for better prices than retail. You'll save a minimum of 20%.
Good luck!

Thanks guys, so having a wide foot won't be a problem with it? Another thing, does anyone know what the deal with the leather on the Tetbury is? It says antiqued nubuck but it looks like smooth calf. How does it compare in quality to the usual calf offerings?

I happened to have two pairs of Tetbury in brown calf or what is reffered to as nubuck. The leather is nice, smooth, and soft, however, there are variations n leather batches. One of my two pairs is much softer than the other.
As far as you concern, you will like the leather. It is high qiuality calf leather.

I handled a pair of these today in the C&J shop local to me. They were darker than I expected but very nice all the same.

 

Spent a good hour going through the leather swatches for MTO ideas, and left there with a lot more potential combinations in my head than before I went in...

Thanks for the info. So do you maintain it as if it were smooth calf or as if it were suede?
