    Hi gentlemen, I'm looking into options for my first pair of proper boots. Any recommendations on which CJ style and leather would work best in a casual context with jeans/chinos/cords as opposed to trousers?

    Versatility wise I would go with a captoe like Harlech or Coniston. If captoes aren't your thing I'd go with a wingtip like the Skyes. If that doesn't float your boat maybe chukkas like the Chilterns.

    The Tetbury is in my casual boot rotation. Got it in brown suede but black or brown calf is cool too.

    Would anyone be kind enough as to confirm the outsole measurments on a size 11UK Conniston?

    Looking to purchase my first C&Js and the seller cannot confirm if the size is listed in US or UK. I'm told the pair measures 4 3/4" by 13".

    Thanks for the suggestion, however, I think I'm leaning towards a tall boot rather than an ankle boot at this point. That is a fine looking chukka though.

    Good luck. I would go with the Skye for a full boot.

    Can't go wrong with the Skye in shell cordovan!

    Harlech in cordovan is in my opinion is as good, classic, versatile and long lasting boot as you can get. They will easily serve you for 15 years rain or shine, mine have.

    The Skye is nice but brogues are never as versatile in my opinion.

    Coniston or Islay are good options.

    Ah yes, Islay. That is the other one I was trying to think of, but couldn't remember.

    I would say Harlech or Skye in cordovan. Or CJ for BB cordovan cap toe boots.

    I love the darker color. Are you using waxes and/or cremes to achieve this look?
