Could be not your cup of tea but it is certainly better made than rustic offerings from C&J
The sole edge and welting alone puts these shoes above anythng C&J can master.

I would get 2 pair of weymouths before considering those santonis

I have the Weymouth Antique Brown and the Seymour (double buckle monk) in Chestnut, and both are fundamental parts of my wardrobe. The 337 last is nicely proportioned compared tpo the other C&J lasts and each style look fabulous from several angles. At the PLAL price, the Weymouth is a best buy. An added bonus is the option for reconstruction on the C&J last back at the factory.

When considering the Weymouth, one must take into consideration that it is a wholecut shoe. It is probably the best wholecut one can buy. Nevertheless, wholecuts are a special case. They crease easily and have other maintenance considerations. Additionally, some do not like the aesthetic of a wholecut. It is too clean and simple. One needs some drama to their shoe. Besides the medallion, the Weymouth is just an unpainted canvas.

Personally, I love that aesthetic. I'm curious about those maintenance considerations you mention ... ??

they were my first SF-approved shoes... bought them from that fine seller, P.Lal, and its been in regular rotation eversince. lovely shoe!

Can I assume that most of you who own the shoe own it in brown? I've always been put-off by the matte finish to the shoe. Does it develop a patina over time?

Own the Weymouth in Antique Brown. I like them a lot and wear them regularly. Get compliments on them as well. As for patina, yes, polish it well and it glows. It comes a bit neutral when new, but so do most good shoes.

I don't really know what I was referring when I wrote that. I'm sure I was thinking of the propensity to crease across the vamp. Because the upper is so exposed so to speak, they are subject to cuts, scraps, and scratches. No more so than any other style I suppose. Use your own judgement.

I prefer shoes with more external features, brogueing etc.
