looking for a suede chukka boot around 250-300€

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
As the title says I'm looking for a suede chukka boot for the fall and winter around 250-300€ in dark brown colour. I'm planning to wear them with odd jackets, chinos, jeans and flannell trousers
Have you got some suggestion?

The rebranded Herring version of the Loakes Kempton is a dark "cigar" brown, flat welt GYW suede chukka just barely within that price range.

are you referring to the herring Gosforth? This one:

I also noticed the loake pimlico, similar to the herring, but slightly cheaper

Yes, the Gosforth II.  Note Herring says it is on the 026 last.  That's the same last as the Loake branded Kempton.  Same shoe as far as I can tell, but a slightly darker shade.  Part of their 1880 series, their top line.

 

All I know of the Pimlico is what I've read on line, i.e. that it is built on a different and slimmer last.  Not sure if part of the 1880 line or not.

the pimlico is part of the 1880 too. http://www.loake.co.uk/byrange/loake-1880/pimlico.html
I'm personally inclined to go with the pimlico, slightly sleaker last and cheaper than the herrings.
I only have a question: are the pimlico versatile enough to be worn with various types of trousers like jeans, cords, flannell and odd jackets?

Yes, the Pimlico will go with all of those. It is slightly sleeker (on the Capital last) than the Kempton.
