I'm not a boot person, but my faves are definitely the Lobb Brooklands, as pictured above, and these -

Did you go with eyelets all the way up, on your Shannons, like Manton. Or with the hook speed lacers? Here's a picture of the Shannon in that configuration(from Tom at Leather Soul)

I went with no speed lacers, all regular eyelets. IMHO, the Shannon is too damn sleek for speed lacers.

Very very nice - the Shannon is easily my favorite boot. Hopefully mine should be in soon - 82 last as yours but in Dark Oak.

A friend of mine has exactly that. That may be next for me. I think I could get this in every color (apart from olive and blue). Plus, I will need at least one Shannon II.

Off topic, but how do boots like these work with no-break pant tailoring?

I don't like lace-up boots. When you cross your legs and those laces show, the appearance is completely inelegant--one would much rather wear combat boots.

Would elastic gores be more elegant?

More importantly, are the posters using special boot trees or regular shoe trees? Anything special in the uppers to keep the shape?

Yes, I feel a Chelsea boot would be more elegant.

Not in my case. Regular trees. I have a pair of blucher boots that have never had boot trees, and the uppers are holding up just fine.

I've never seen a high-end RTW boot tree.

A shorter pair of these would be nice. The front part is attached to the hinged foot, then the other two parts are put into place.

These are the nicest I've found...Lobb also makes one that zjpj has shown.

Disagree. There is a lot to be said for combat boots, but I prefer these.
