anyone here cross shop their St Crispins with Anthony Cleverley semi-bespoke? or own both? I have a pair of St C but I haven't had any experience with AC, although the Leather Soul guys reserve the highest praise for AC (they offer both so I assume no bias)

if so your insights would be appreciated

AC semi-bespoke is very under radar but styles are limited.  Also, who do they employ to do the hand lasting/welting is also in question.

The Cleverley's product range is practical. It starts at entry level where styles and quality are perhaps the best value for money, right through to bespoke, where there is a no nonsense, practical and non-pompous professionalism applied to their products and service which just works really well for me.

Leather Soul are also my favorite retailers, and the great relationship between the Glasgows and LS is obvious, so perhaps I have some bias there, but I can confidently state that it is unlikely that any AC client would be disappointed by either their product or their service, especially if the purchase was done through a retailer like Tom Parks of LS.
thanks, this is a good comparison and your input is much appreciated. basically looking for something that is St. Crispin level in quality and finishing, but maybe styled more in the English tradition

Nice boots JB.  Is it a special pattern make-up? Can't seem to find your boots in their catalogue.
