    Currently aching for a pair of these. I'm assuming they're available via MTO only?

    Haha a Toronto MTO would be nice, except for the crappy Canadian dollar!

    Have my first pair of C&J arriving next week. Brown Coniston from Frans Boone!

    Yes sir, it's the Galway II. They're basically the non-shell version of the Gianni.

    Maiden wear. C&J Skye in a tan/tan combo. These guys make some great boots.

    What would you go for?

    Chiltern Snuff Suede vs Church's Ryder Maracca Suede? Price point is not important in this case, as they are similarly priced.

    Chiltern by a country mile.
    The Ryder chukkas looks like a blob and the color is strictly for casual wear.

    LoL, thanks gents. Didn't expect the Chiltern is considered that much of a better choice. I already have a pair of Dark Brown Suede Ryder and was pretty happy. I need another pair for a transition period between Winter and Spring, and Tobacco/Snuff seems to be the popular choice ..

    It's also strange how Church's prices are now higher than those at Crockett Jones, I would say at least 15% higher .. Must be the Church's is a better seller due to Prada ownership and they seem to be selling everywhere. Could be that less people recognize/ is aware of Crockett Jones as well?

    I wish the Chiltern's were a bit more shapely too, but not as much as the Tetburys.

    I thought CJ is selling like hot cakes, never able to find an online shop with full inventory...

    I thought of Church's more like the Armani or Hugo Boss which outsells the more quality brands with similar price point mainly due to more stockists and general presence or the taste of the uneducated buyers .. That is part of a beauty of the CJ as well, as I believe far less people outside of this board are aware of it's existence compared to Church's.
