Thanks.

It seems there are a number of people (myself included) who would like to place an order.

I have posted on LL to this effect, emailed Michael direct and dropped him a PM (all done earlier this week) so I am hopeful of a response. If I have missed the boat, will someone please put me out of my misery!

I agree with you and Matt. However, if these boots were not bals, they would look even more like military combat boots. All combat boots I have seen or worn were blucher type, the bal styling on these really helps give them a more dressy look.

Off you go - wear your flip flops in good health!

I have a pair of bespoke balmoral boots in black calf. They were not intended as such, but they are basically a trophy item, getting little use. There always seems to be a reason I don't wear them, which is a pity as I am very happy with how they turned out.

Now, no need to get offended. Also no need to defend a boot fetish with tradition. Just come out of the damn closet.

I thought the fetish was already well known anyway

In any case dress boots are well rooted in tradition:

I hope you don't plan to get through airport security with boots. You might miss your flight I would love to see suckers of tradition wear those silly outfits with their boots.

Aha! That's when I wear my Chelsea boots with the lounge suit.

I can get 'em on and off quicker than your lace up Oxford shoes

Now, you need to write a paper to justify where Chelsea boots are derived from. Must adhere to tradition

Actually, Chelseas with lounge suits is very traditional! They were very commonly worn in the 19th century as dress boots.

I am just surprised you wear something as casual as a lounge suit. You might as well wear a string bikini.

I love Chelsea boots with a suit, although the trousers have to be drainpipe, and the shoes sleek.

Very '60s.
