    Hello. I have a quick question. I've been following the Bluefly RLPL/C&J thread and have become interested in those 'dark brown Mccallum Chukkas'. Previously, many have stated that certain boots are perfectly acceptable to wear with jackets and suits. Is this permission extended to the chukka? I ask because I need brown shoes to wear with jackets and suits, but the C&J's, while beautiful, fall somewhat out of the price and sartorial range that I'm accustomed to. Also, are there any opinions on the quality of those chukkas?

    Thanks.

    I own those Polo cordovan chukkas, in dark brown. I like them alot, and seem to be very well made. I may be wrong, but I am almost certain they are made by Crockett & Jones. The cordovan has aged well in the 2 years or so I have owned the boots. Now, as far as wearing them with suits, thats up to you. I have worn them on many occasions with heavier tweed suits, that are very rustic looking, in the cooler weather months. I think they look great with them. I wouldnt however, wear them with a summer weight suit or something very sleek and elegant looking. They are rather chunky boots, and probably not entirely appropriate with such suits. Hope that helps, and ofcourse, this is just one mans opinion.
