Thanks. Very pleased I picked them up last week while in Paris.

Recently got some Pembrokes, they do well on bikes, rain and what not.

Just ordered a pair of Coniston boots, hopefully the instep is roomier on the boots.

A few month back I found a decrepit pair of C&J Chepstows in a thrift shop. I sent them off to C&J for refurbishment. They came back today and I am very pleased. Before and after pics are up on my Tumblr (link is in my sig).

Hi.Thank you very much for all the praise on my boots shown a few pages back. To answer one of the questions raised, I am not the first owner and I confirm they have not been kept safely inside a closet during all these years. Although they were pampered just before I took the photos, they have been on the field and used as the rugged country boots they're expected to be. For the sake of science, and also to satisfy the curiosity of C&J aficionados, I just took some pictures side by side with my pair of Coniston. There are some explicit differences, one of them being the thickness of the leather on the uppers. The leather on the 70 year old boots is twice as thick as the leather of the Conistons. It seems also thicker and rougher than a pair of vintage Lotus veldtschoen boots I bought recently even though they are made of grain calf leather and not Zug grain. Enjoy.

Notice the "finesse" of the sole stitching compared to the Coniston, and the more rounded toe of course:

@Crat

 

Do you have a tutorial on this?

You've definitely masked the significant abrasion.

Hm, not really to be honest.
I just kinda put a spit-shine over the damage.
