the G&G site won't display, any other suggestions, I am actually looking for some boots that are stacked at the heel to give some extra height.

i have a pair of the Lucchese Classics ropers in black cherry goat leather. they are pretty amazing.

does anyone else have the ropers? have had them for a few months - the leather is incredible, and the fit seems perfect except for the heel, which feels a little short. does anyone know if this eventually breaks in?

I have the same Lucchese Classics, the leather is wonderful and the black cherry ages very nicely, but how do you expect the heel to break in? I dont follow your question.

Lucchese Classics are amazing. Prior to a trip to Austin, I always thought cowboy boots looked like a P.O.S. That was until I saw a pair of ropers without that ugly toe stiching and a lower heel.

To all you Lucchese fans: Does a Roper from the Classic line always trump a Chelsea style boot?

How do you rate Alfred Sargent's shoes and boots? Any good? Top end quality wise from the UK makers, I'd put Crockett and Jones, Tricker's and Grenson, EG excepted. Barker and Loake below that. AS are a bit 'left field' - no catalogue, dedicated website or shop, so it's difficult to assess. The Westminister/Pall Mall/Connaught/Tavistock in the Premier Exclisive collection have oak bark channelled leather soles, which are absent on the Crockett and Jones RTW lines. Have the same Pediwear price point (£243) though. Possibly, as good as the top three, if not better. Below that, Premier and Classic collection, possibly sit somewhere in between Barker and top three.

By RTW mean 'benchgrade'. As far as I'm aware, oak bark channelled soles are only available on the handgrade collection. I haven't looked through the catalogue, but I think I'm right.

I really like RL boots if you're into the equestrian type. Justin makes some good cowboy boot

A bit "streetwear and denim" but for jeans, Paul Smith York boots always go down well!

Black Jack Cowbiy boots aren't as nice as Lucchese but they're still a good brand.

That's the Burnham on either the TF73 or MH71 last.

No idea where you are. You can consult the stockists list on their Website. Dean and Tony are currently doing trunk shows in the States.
