Yeah...good, but I bet the Bridal party didn't arrive standing on the trays of a Ford F100 convoy...to the strains of Garth Brooks. Spesh!

Not really a black boot kind of person but if I was, I'd have grabbed these beautiful suede and calf Crockett and Jones Keswick boots down from UKP355 to UKP175. I've got no experience with the shop though.

received photos of my meermin MTO's with the new flush toe caps - reposting from the meermin thread for Jase etc to see how they turn out...

 

 

Pepe also emailed me photos of my MTO's - see attached. I had pushed him for some flush steel toe caps. Initially he couldnt do them but half way through he came back and told me that they are now possible and they look great!

9.5UK - Shipped for AUD$260 which is a great price.. I think aesthetically they're quite a bit different to the Tetburys, but if they're too similar i'll give them to my old man.

Brilliant, that's my size smile.gif The last is rounder and not as elongated as the Tetbury - I think the last suits someone whose feet are on the wide side of medium. They're also a taller boot so definitely different, more like the Northcote or Coniston than the chukkas or chelsea boots. The suede shaft will also differentiate them as well and might even make them more comfortable compared to boots where the shaft is calf leather. The dark brown of the suede also looks interesting against the darker leather.

 

Please post a review once you get them.
