Hit or miss. I owned a pair of chukkas in the past and they served me well.  I have heard bad stories about them as well. These are about 1/2 size too large so they are going back

Just get the Crocket and Jones from Barney's when the go on sale...note Barney's is US size. You get classic English Maker for under $300

Left to Right RM Williams, Crocket and Jones(Barney's), Viberg and RM Williams(craftsman) - I still have the C&J and Viberg and a RM Williams(different color) The RM williams on the right was my favorite color but it did not fit

Which ones feel the best on your feet?

The RM Williams initially feels best due to softer sole and full cushioned footbed. Crocket & Jones probably second then the Viberg. I no longer have the RM Williams - I purchased a suede pair also but my wife said they looked too much like a cowboy boot.

 

Viberg is probably my favorite as it is like a tank and the extra heft to it fits better with my super casual wardrobe. Overall look though C&J is probably the winner as it is most classic IMHO.

I decided to keep the burgundy ones I ordered from London and will be returning the brown Gordon Rush boots (or maybe exchange them for a pair of suede Wolverines)

 

 

 

 

And now I want these Varvatos boots but I probably won't be able to find them.  All they have on their site are the artificially weathered Fleetwood boot. Ugh.

 

edit: On second look these just might be Fleetwoods.  $700 tho...

If you're still looking, I would consider RM williams carefully. There aren't many places to find them in the states to try on, but they are a great deal.

I am supposed to be in NYC this weekend.  Isn't there a store in Manhattan

@callen - I would strongly recommend the RM Williams Craftsman. It is one of the few remaining Chelsea boots in the world that only have one seam (i.e. it is a wholecut boot). Makes the boots really comfy and gives off a rugged yet dressy vibe. You can also check out the Kangaroo Craftsman. It is slightly more expensive but worth the few extra bucks.

RMW Kangaroo leather is lovely but creases heavily. .
