Cheaneys are prob the price/construction sweet spot for mid-range bench-made RTW English shoes. Very solid and great value for money, more like Trickers than Green or GG for example. A recent post by Theyare (bottom) in the Shoe damage thread shows they can do some pretty nice looking stuff too, even Berluti-like in their finishing. Their burnishing is nice too, and they have followed the AS and GG trend and recently brought out the Imperial range with fiddle waists. I got onto em thru a book, the main character in the Jack Reacher series wears them and even compares them favourably with Churchs and other English -made shoes. Tenterden, pebblegrain bluchers Theyare's Imperials (sorry don't know which) anyone else got some of these no nonsense beauties?
