It's a slightly pebbled grain leather, so I suppose that helps.

I'm actually looking to order a pair of chukkas from Saint Crispins - most likely in a dark brown - for this same purpose.

IMO, the bigger determining factor is the shape of the boot, rather that the color. Those Corthays look off to me because they seem too pointy. I don't like pointy shoes in general, but with a pair of jeans, I think you're better off with a more conservative round toe, such as EG's 202 last.

 

Are you planning to go for a thicker sole (e.g. double leather or Dainite), or single leather? I love the feel of single leather, and find that other single-leather chukkas I have (Aldens) go well with jeans.

I actually haven't thought that far ahead, as I was planning to order some EG MTOs first. I imagine the Saint Crispin order won't happen for me until the middle of summer.

That said, I think either thicker or slimmer soles could work. IMO, it's all about the overall design of the shoe, not just one single aspect. My Alden unlined chukkas, for example, are built on a really thin flex welt sole, and they look better with jeans than any other kind of pants. The C&J Brecons, on the other hand, are built on studded Dainites, and they work too. Again, I think the Alden's suede uppers and Brecon's pebbled grain leathers help make them more "casual," although I also wear them with tailored clothing.

What chukkas are you thinking about getting? The EG Banbury or Silverstone? I was actually planning to order a couple of Banburys at some point. The suedes look very nice, as does the brown deerskin. I think either of those materials would work with jeans.

The mole suede swatch I have doesn't look anything like that at all. I wonder if EG accidentally mislabeled mine.

In any case, would you say these are also accurate representations of mole suede? They all seem quite different from the color on Brooks Brothers' site, but I wonder if that's because of the nap. As you noted, suede can be very difficult to photograph. At least in these photos (taken from LeatherSoul), the color looks a bit more grey.

How odd. They must have given me the wrong swatch then for mole suede. I'll request it again. Thanks, @sevenfoldtieguy. Those characterizations were very helpful.

Any additional thoughts from others would be appreciated.

Yes those are accurate presentation of the mole suede color. In fact that Brooks Brother loafer looks exactly like those shoes pictured on LeatherSoul web site. I ordered that loafer from Brooks Brothers and I had to return it due to the fit issues so I have seen what it looks like in the real life. I think LeatherSoul does better job of photographing shoes than Brooks Brothers does.
I do not know what is the cause of discrepancy in the swatch you have? It might have been mislabeled or it might have been just a variation in colors from batch to batch.

Is the edgetrim on this malvern antique? I looked a skoaks website and i didn't see all of the edge trim options.

Is anyone interested in doing a GMTO in cloud for the Westminster or Oundle?

I was thinking either the Banbury or the Warwick.  For the material I was actually thinking about brown calf (maybe dark oak or bronze).  I haven't heard of the deerskin - I'll have to find out more about it.

Does anyone know/seen the Nevis boot as an MTO with two colours? I was debating the Nevis as a walnut country calf / dark oak. Similar to a popular Galway combination widely seen.

I was told they wouldn't do that, so I had Saint Crispin make a similar boot.

Some fancy new arrivals.

Henley on the 888 last.  One in Cloud Antique and Flannel Suede and the other in Dark Oak and White Calf.

Can anyone help me and give some info - why does the logo on this EG shoe has this type of letters? Are these maybe some old model and thus old logo which is not produced any longer?

Thanks
