Looks like he has taken a liking to Bigi now...   I don't blame him, they make lovely ties.

Try East Dane (if you need an invite, ask Mimo for one since he mentioned it first...he gets a little break if you buy something).

 

THey have Loake now too

 

These are at $440, but I strongly suspect they will drop in price, 30%, then 50 etc.

Sierra Trading Post for Trickers, which you can have in the mid $200 sometimes. They rarely have US 9 however.

 

Ok, coffee break over for me...

Another nice winter boot sub $200 would be the Bexley Enfield. http://www.bexley.com/Bexley/en/p/dress_shoes/enfield?coloris=chocolat

On second thoughts, perhaps not: the Freds are great winter boots for me, but I don't do any wading in snow. If I did, I would regret the absence of a bellows tongue - snow will work its way in through the lacing if it's that deep and make you wet.  Will try to think of a better option.

I have these as my winter boots, which I picked up at quite a discount (easy to find AEs at big discounts if you are patient)

I admit they do not look as handsome as the C&J, but I doubt it snows as hard in London where Cleav is than in Colorado. And in a foot of snow, I don't want to worry about my boots. You can always change into something work appropriate when you get to the office. I use trees, brush them off, obenaufed them. They'll last for a while, and I don't think twice as opposed to a $600 boot.

Completely understand. You do pay for what you get, which also relates to how well the kicks stand up to getting beaten. To illustrate this...

@Crat Could you post those pics of yours?

If you're impatient they're over in the C & J thread, probably about a week ago, awesome icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Struggling to find a good English boot with a bellows tongue for a reasonable price: keep a look out for Alfred Sargeant "Hannover" in the summer sales - for now it's about $500 with free shipping and trees from AFPOS or Pediwear.  Tricker's have some rather plain equivalents, and also this awesomeness made for Herring (whose summer sale is also worth checking), for the same kind of price.  And if you ask, they might throw in some trees.

Cheers Stitchy, glad to have you back! It's weird browsing SF with no Stitchy comments in any of the frequently visited threads.

I can't speak for this particular boot. But I own a pair of Bexley Chelseas that are pretty much falling apart after 2 years of very light use. I don't expect much from budget shoes, but a big hole in one of the uppers is pretty bad when the shoes haven't been worn much more than 10-15 times (without any real abuse).

Free trees on the AS but no bags? How's that happen. I love the AS Hannover, hope the land on sale soon. What's the best way to keep an eye out for sales? Just check back daily?

How about the Islays too?

^+1 on the Islay id like to see how they handle a beating. If they end up on sale they might be a good choice as well.
