    Ditto on the above. I have some Grenson masterpieces that look just like the Greshams and are my go-to boots for jeans. That said, any of those boots would look great with jeans.

    I agree with that ordering, too, but the Gresham are a truly wonderful way to show some understated personal taste and edge.

    Vass all the way. I'm in the minority of those who don't find the conservative-ness of EG/C&J that appealing. [​IMG]

    I like them in the order the pictures appear.

    Vass
    Gresham
    Newmarket

    I am partial to chukkas and not such a fan of chelsea boots.

    I really do not like the shape of the EG boots. That bulge on the top just looks unsightly to me, like your foot has a hump. The Vass boot looks great, but I'm not sure how it would work with jeans.

    Ditto!
    It's no secret that I certainly like C&J and EG, but in this comparison Vass beats the competition hands down. I consider the other two boots dead boring.

    Loving that Gresham. IMHO Chelseas just lack a certain something, they're too plain, I think the buckle on Jodphur boots finishes it nicely.

    Looking at some Gucci Jodphurs myself atm...
