Excellent duo, kwhitelaw.
Does Alden Madison Ave carry very many styles in store that are not on the website? Thanks.post #60805 of 1224169/19/13 at 3:55pmpost #60806 of 1224169/19/13 at 3:56pmpost #60807 of 1224169/19/13 at 4:13pmQuote:
Yes, I've heard very good things about Shoe Healer and Richard. But their B&M store is up in Yorkshire, isn't it? Or do they have a store in London, also? Not sure I'm going to make it as far north as London on my way back, unless I can convince my sister/brother-in-law to take a trip up there. Thanks for the input.Quote:
The Galway does look quite amazing and other people have raved about this boot as well. I'll try to see them in person in London. Thanks!post #60808 of 1224169/19/13 at 4:41pmpost #60809 of 1224169/19/13 at 4:41pmRandom question/remark:
I found out that dark brown suede PTBs exist! I had only seen white, navy, snuff, and tan thus far, but apparently Harrison in AL has them, but I was able to track 'em down from the DC Alden store. Perfect for autumn and IMHO suitable for summer - basically year round shoes here in Texas!post #60810 of 1224169/19/13 at 5:15pmQuote:Originally Posted by BootSpell
This request for input is somewhat off-topic but I think the profile for many of the posters on this thread might be the best match for the feedback I'm looking for.
I am passing through London at the end of this month and want to go visit Jermyn Street. I don't own any boots from the English manufacturers but I'm interested in picking up a pair or two while I'm there so I'd like any suggestions from anybody who owns C&J, AS, Trickers, etc.
I'm interested specifically in boots, leaning more to the casual style. I've done a bit of research and C&J seems to have the most options that interest me. I hear Trickers are quite good but so far, I'm not crazy about how they look (all from pictures). For my first foray into English boots, I probably don't want to pay the price for EG, JL, etc.
So far, the one that's caught my eye was the C&J shell Harlech boot. Doesn't have to be shell, though. TIA.
If you like the Harlech, this thread may be of interest.
If you like the country boot style with blobby lasts that make the barrie seem sleek in comparison then Tricker's are for you. The AS country boots aren't bad but the country boot is Tricker's bread and butter. Tricker's also do sleeker boots like the Harlech but they're not usually standard production models. The Jermyn store might have some special make up though.
I'd personally concentrate on C&J but that's because my closet is already full of Tricker's.
Pricewise, don't forget to do whatever it is you have to do to be able to claim back VAT which is like 20%.
