Can you post pics of all three? I like the Aberdeen but it would be interesting to see the 3 together for comparison.

In England? Pretty sure it's C&J

My mistake. I thought he was referring to those Epaulet cordovans boots which are from Carmina.

The BB cordovans for $1k are indeed C&J.

Yep, I meant the BB boots. I notice that they're not on the site during their F&F 25% off sale.

Quick question regarding lacing, which one looks better here? Standard or bar lacing? Can't decide

I always liked bar, but I'd say standard for this instance.  Just looks better in this context IMO.  When does the BB sale end? Today?

With that color I'd say straight lacing. The bar looks too skinheadish to me.

Those are gorgeous. Where are they from?

IMO the bar looks better, but either works.

I agree the bar looks a little cleaner, but personally i find it almost impossible to do bar lacing on boots as it makes it tougher to put them on/take them off.

Thanks for all the replies. I don't really need to dress them up (I wear business casual normally) and usually have the standard lacing on Aldens as they are chunkier. But have seen some bar lacings on boots and thinks it makes the look a bit cleaner...

Grendel they are ravello plain toe on modified last from anatomica paris. Got them off b&s new from someone who got it off seconds list

What I do is bar lacing for the first 4-5 pairsand then switch to standard closer to the top. Makes it easier to tighten/loosen the top of the boot and looks cleaner down below. Unless your pants have a negative break few people will see the difference.
