    There's not much around on the C&J Chelsea boots..?
    Thinking of getting a pair, but there are very few pictures and even fewer showing them being worn. Why is that?
    Some pictures show them looking very nice and sleek, whilst some others show them..rather blobby..?

    +1, I'm also curious to see what they look like in the wild. Especially the chelsea 3 in suede. I'd also like to know how high/tall the uppers are, they kind of look like short ankle boots in some pics.

    I'd like to second that. Was just browsing C&J chelseas and was disappointed by the combinations. I basically want a brown dainite sole chelsea, maybe chromexcel maybe not, but there's only one option.. I think it's the chelsea 5? The other version with the v-shaped elastic tab would have been perfect, but it's in either black cmxl or suede.

    Reviving this thread again. What do people think about the Chelsea 5? I don't ever see it mentioned on SF.

    Chelsea 8 by Crocketts, really comfortable, the 341 last is used of many of their benchgrade shoes, and is nice and slim. I'm a size 8E (UK) and this last really suits me. I have three pairs in the 341. They look better with age, I just got this pair.
