Don't know about them, only seen in pictures as you have seen I am sure. It's a different take of the museums from JLP.

Vint cherry is similar, but still different enough.
My main thing is I don't want G&G vimtage cherry to be same as red cognac box calf color other wise museume gold calf it is

It's different, but depends how comfortable you are of the difference to be. They are both red colors, G&G treats Vintage with burnish and depending on the pair it may have the faded look. Vass usually comes as is and closest to G&G rosewood calf.

Good luck. I know you will get the right color lol. It took me few years to have like 30 pairs, it may just take you a few months more.

My biggest regret was that I had a pair of these and I sold them because I felt they were too hard too pull on and off. I'm sure they would have loosened up a bit.

Thinking I know which JL version you speak of, I know you made a great choice there.

 

 

Since the other is G&G I'm certain that will be a great choice as well.

 

 

I really look forward to seeing your pictures and getting your thoughts once you receive them.

 

 

Congrats in advance!!!!

I already joined the first St James Kudu and calf so I doubt that I would join the second one if there is one. Hopefully that shoe will arrive mid October as originally as anticipated.

That's probably true to a degree of all sleek premium Chelsea boots.  Any that I've come across that slip on and off easily tend to be more of the work boot variety (think Blundtstone) with a fairly sloppy fit overall. I'm willing to budget the extra time required. :D

 

Anyway, a sole shot:
