    Looks strangely a Rick Owen idea to me

    Nonetheless, it is awesome and innovative.

    The chelsea looks odd to me. The buckshot effect makes sense as a visual pun on typical broguing. But I don't expect to see broguing on a plaintoe chelsea, so the holes look like something's wrong with the boot. Almost like moth holes.

    I think its nothing to do with the broguing its merely just buckshot ie a shot in the foot so i suppose it can be shot on any type of shoe. I do agree with you though it does look better on the brogue rather than the plain boot as a visual effect to my eye anyways.

    Not to my liking but I suppose it will appeal to some. It looks far worse on the boot to be sure.

    this. Wouldn't wear them but there's always something charming or fascinating about something that comes out of left field that way.

    Where the brogue looked like abstract brogueing the Chelsea looks like you just shot yourself in the foot which is slightly less artistic. Horses for courses I suppose.

    Hello folks, I'm new to this here forum, so forgive me for jumping straight in on what is probably a well-worn topic.

    I chanced upon Style Forum because I have recently begun a quest to find the perfect shoe. After much searching and internetting, I found the Buckshot Brogue and deemed it to be the shoe I needed to help me on my way in the larger quest of dressing much more like the modern stylish gentleman that I should be. ( A quest you'll all be familiar with I am sure, as frequenters of this forum).

    Anyway, I digress. I was at first dismayed to learn that the Buckhots were no longer in production. But then delighted to read the Gieves & Hawkes press release that they're comig back this Autumn. So i thought that as many of you seem to be a bit more in the know than I'll ever be, I'd ask if anyone here knows any more about the Buckshots.

    Will it just be the square-toed version as pictured earlier in this thread (of which there's a few pairs on ebay) ?

    Does anyone know how soon they'll be in stock with Gieves & Hawkes?

    I am really hoping to find a cap-toe (?) pair of Buckshots, whether that is in the Autumn release from G&H or second-hand.

    Any help appreciated.

    Cheers

    Paul
