Suede is fine for rough boots, there are plenty of varieties of heavy and/or waxed suede available and my shearling Galways served me well last winter. Also worth thinking about Cheaney's Irvine brogue boot model (non-veldt, though), which are fully shearling-lined as opposed to just lined in the leg as per the Galway variants:

 

 

Thanks for the info Brummie. I might not disregard the suede combo then. But do you know what EG charges for veldtschoen? Preferably I should go for the rough type of leather as well (can't remember the name of it?) and on the 202 last, but not sure if EG does shearling on anything but the 64 last. Anyway, I like the Cheaneys, but I think they're a bit to similar to my Islays (that I will btw have resoled with ridgeway next time they'll need it.

Good to know, but where can one get a fully shearling lined (quality) boot? I've given Ed Et Al a thought (got two pairs of shoes from them, and they're great value) since they do shearling (not sure if they do fully or only partly lining), but they won't do veldtschoen. So I don't quite know where that leaves me...

EG have four stock veldtschoen models, two of which are (partially) shearling-lined (walnut country calf and mink suede, and rosewood country calf with tobacco suede). They also do non-lined versions in almond and rosewood country calf. They will only do veldts on the 64 last.

 

It's a shame that C&J won't work with shearling but I decided that I wanted these for year-round use anyway as I needed some more casual boots for weekend wear:

Wow Brummie, they're certainly ideal for that use - actually now I find myself wondering if I need a similar pair. Hmm…
 
As regard the Galway I think I would go for a MTO in almond country calf (or a similar colour in their die hard-leather) and tobacco suede, veldt and shearling. But I reckon it would probably be around a 1000 pounds… But maybe I should try to wip up some interest on the EG forum, and see if we could get ourselves a group price (though I have promised myself to try my luck with some Alderleys in Edwardian Antique first thing).

If you are ready to pay 1000 pounds then just ask Vass or Maftei for the boots you want, it will cost you less. Although don't know how much they charge for the shearling and veldtschoen.

They won't have the machinery for the veldtschoen though. Not many places do and I don't know of any outside of England as the 'welted veldtschoen' build is an English thing...

What is the best shoe polish to use on a pair of Selbourne Chestnut Antique Calf shoes and where can it be purchased?

I have the Somerville in the same color- the handgrade chestnut antique- as opposed to the burnished chestnut benchgrade color, which is quite different. I use Saphir mahogany. I have gotten it from Kirby Allison's Hanger Project and A Suitable Wardrobe Store, but there are plenty of other good sources.

My first ever pair of C and J. Bit surprising considering my entire family is a C and J fan.

 

Connaught in black calf. Unfortunately I've failed to do the polishing properly near the heel but hopefully i can fix that later. :)

To say I'm happy with these would be a slight understatement.

 

Great taste in boots.  I have some reverse Alden Indy's but these are on another level!

post #5292 of 7797
Love those !

Great combination

Just out of interest as its related in some ways, anyone seen these ?






post #5293 of 7797
Oh yeah :

post #5294 of 7797

Does anyone have the Courtenay ? Want to pull the trigger but would like to heard any views and hopefully any pics of how it wears and creases with time.

They're nice. Did you buy all three pairs of shoes off that seller? I was tempted myself for flipping but didn't in the end..
