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.
Absolutely stop by Shoe Healer. Richard is awesome to work with and should have a nice selection. I think you may like Trickers more in person...
