    Copy-pasting from the shoe porn thread.

    Today I've no flabbergasting triple-soled, Norvegese-welted and smoke machine-enhanced Italian handicrafts to share. I thought these photos would merely help the man pondering about Cheaney's Jackie III model and the last's shape. They also show how Cheaney has improved its wares under the new Church's leadership. I feel the lasts are more contoured, the waists definitely shapelier and I do like this particular suede: smooth, fine nap, springs back to its shape after bending. One point of nagging, though. The welt stitches are too crude and sparse. Yes, shoe OCD is strong with this one.

    Pony suede (dark brown in real life), Dainite soles, somewhat elongated toe, chukkas with rounded seams.

    We've got 3 styles in from Cheaney, including this beaut. Nice and heavy as I expect from an English boot, with commando sole for harsher weather.

    Great quality in my opinion and the last / toe in person aren't so bulky as they appear in pictures.

    I really like the new Harpole in Dark Leaf and I think to order them, anyone have these shoes?

    I copped a pair of black wholecut oxfords from Cheaney on ebay some time ago. I don't see where they were made on any labels because they're pretty worn inside (but not beat up, or even close-- a little Saphir and they looked brand new). They're fantastic.

    Herring Churchills (made by Cheaney, 11028 last) on the grass today. More suitable for narrow feet than my wide ones.

    Well since you're the Indian leather expert I wouldn't dream of enquiring how you are able to make such arbitrary comparisons[​IMG]

    Cheaney use Leathers from European Tanneries, France and Germany.

    Partially thanks to SF I have recently become a fan of English shoes and after a few trips around the Factory shops in Northamptonshire I really like the range from Cheaney and Crockett & Jones in particular.

    Cheaney seem to have a nice range of different styles and as such they are becoming my manufacturer of choice, particularly for the amount they cost.

    My recent purchases from the Cheaney Factory shop

    I've been told the next 2 pairs were transferred from the London shops and are made in Italy I believe. They have apparently sold very well in the Factory shop, certainly over a couple of visits they don't seem to have them long. I know they aren't the normal SF shoes but wanted something for driving to avoid damaging good shoes as well as something lightweight for the summer.
