    Yes, I excluded VAT. Still quite a decent price though, although I now can't stop thinking about grain shell...

    Looks like they managed to 'develop' one at the same time as shearling lining, which was a flat refusal from Jonathan Jones himself when I mooted the idea...and they also managed to line this Snowdon, too...

    It is very nice, isn't it?

    Popped into the local C&J shop on Monday afternoon as I was passing by. Not often I wear a suit, so almost feels like I'm channeling John Inman in this pic:

    New Conistons!

    I really don't want to sound dramatic but the 325 'BOOT' last is probably the most
    comfortable ever on any shoe that I've owned.

    My only complain is that this boot is not a Tan but more close to a mid brown,
    I took some Saphir mink oil and wiped off the excess polish and applied a "cognac" creme.

    Does anyone here use Saphir Cognac for this boot, I am leaning towards using a Mahogany.

    Congratulations on a beautiful pair of boots. I have a pair of Conistons as well and as soon as I put them on, I felt like going for a long walk with them - they were that comfortable. I've actually done 8km walks wearing the boots and they've been comfortable all the way. I usually use the brown or dark brown polish for the boots but the beauty of it is that you're free to experiment and see what works best - you can always strip away the polish and start again.

    Just remember that the layers we apply are so thin that you wouldn't see a significant difference in the colour of the boots even with a couple of layers of black polish.

    Congrats again! Thanks to you, I think I'll wear mine today!

    Cheers, pal!

    That suit has a lovely ginger pinstripe on a dark grey wool/cashmere background - my tailor made it for someone else who never collected it so I picked it up for a steal! Looks fantastic with my old Church's 'Buck' suede brogues...wearing the C&J 'Hastings' made for Purdey in that pic...
    I was about to make an inappropriate joke about Mrs Slocombe's cat, but thought better of it... :D
