I am curious on the Arran but want to know mire details. More interested in a smooth leather. What do people wear it with? Seems relatively formal.

It's down to what fits your eye - some people wear very sleek footwear even with denim.  For me, I see this as a very versatile piece easily transitioning from chinos, cords and moleskins up to a sport coat with a tie.  I generally stop short of pairing a chukka with a suit but, this one could work.

nice shading, but maybe try to take the photo from a bit back and on an angle so we can see it more clearly. Great choice!!

yea, I'll wear just about any style but formal black shoes with jeans because you can dress the denim up with a sport coat and a dress shirt, but then dress them down with a sweater or even a tee shirt. Those casual types are great to use for most chukka boots! This Arran is sleek enough that you can probably cover any of the denim side as well as with chinos, corduroy, etc.

Is it the Glencoe?

I will just put a bit of black wax and then polish, no one will notice (except for yourself of course) Nothing to worry about unless it is badly cut to the inside.

They seem to be too long for your feet.

they do appear that way to me too. the first set of creasing over the vamp isn't that bad, but the far crease looks as if your toes are ending there. When you press down on your big toe, where do your toes end? is it before, at, or after that far crease? if it is after that far crease is that where your big toe nail is starting?

Gents, please correct me if i am wrong, but I think the man is asking for help to fix the scratch at the toe, not the length of the shoes

Black, hmmm - I used some burgundy which didn't do much - shown in the pic.

They are too long, although they're the same size I take in Canterbury, Wigmore, and Thorpe. They wear about 1/2 size big on me.
Should have returned them. This happened the first time I wore them - had them on a couple hours. I'll probably try to fix them up and flip 'em.
