I don't have a beechnut pair but from what I've seen, the Saphir Cognac looks very similar

My C&J Brunswick's from Robert Olde arrived today (they got them in on Fri morning and DHL'd them from UK to Florida and - viola! - Monday morning by 8a).
I was able to swing by the house at lunch and quickly check them out and try them on. Beeeeeaaaauuutiful. And they feel like a good fit - a touch of slippage in the heel but the front half and toe box feels spot on. Especially in my right foot where the width is a bit bigger than the left and my little toe tends to get crammed. All that feels good, really good, so a pad for the heel area is about all I need.
I have to say these are almost exquisite to handle, certainly my highest quality shoes yet. And, I'm not regretting the purchase in regards to overlapping responsibilities with the Marlow, they'll play two different roles.
I leave on a trip tomorrow but when I get back in a week I'll drop some pics and especially some side by sides with the Marlows. And then, into the rotation!!!post #2688 of 985311/12/12 at 12:13pmpost #2689 of 985311/12/12 at 12:28pmpost #2690 of 985311/12/12 at 12:37pmpost #2691 of 985311/12/12 at 12:46pmpost #2692 of 985311/12/12 at 1:54pmpost #2693 of 985311/12/12 at 3:02pmQuote:
I was assuming the trousers were being lifted up to show more of the boot. That can't possibly be where the trouser leg sits at full extension.post #2694 of 985311/12/12 at 3:10pmQuote:
Pick a color that's close, but a bit lighter and you're fine. If you feel ambitious, go a shade darker every once in a while. You will build a nice patina. Shoe leather is not like an automobile. No "manual" that tells one the Single proper way to maintain.post #2695 of 985311/12/12 at 3:12pmQuote:
This is what all the fashionistas want to sell the buyer on now-a-days. High hems, short sleeves... I am dubious. In a year or two, they will tell us the traditional break of fabric is "back" and anyone who followed the trend is F@#KED!
Nice shoes, though!post #2696 of 985311/12/12 at 3:21pmpost #2697 of 985311/12/12 at 4:02pm
Could you chaps recommend me a good C&J black dress shoe that could be worn with a suit and smart/casually (jeans/SC)? I'm still working on my staples (navy and charcoal suits on the way, got a decent pair of brown oxfords and need some black shoes). Is it worth going with a dainite rubber sole given that the UK is cold, wet and miserable a lot of the time or would this be a waste for a first C&J buy? I quite like the look of the Talbot and Aintree.post #2698 of 985311/12/12 at 4:13pmpost #2699 of 985311/12/12 at 4:14pm
