Hi Guys,

Not one to worry about annoying those who despise the 'House of Correction'
but Crockett & Jones have produced this example (What not Church's.... I hear them cry!
)

It is a C & J "Worcester" black boned calf on the 341 last

[/IMG]

I know it is rather a 'Plain Jane' derby shoe.... but the question is: do 'you' allow them to get away with it?

Regards,

Graham

The more commonly used term at C&J is cavalry calf, I believe.

C&J are now making the Hallam in cavalry calf and a rubber sole:



- I'm actually thinking of getting a pair as a bad weather dress shoe.

Traditionally, boned calf literally meant that you polished a shoe in part by rubbing a bone against the leather. It did not refer to corrected grain or any other leather that was treated prior to the making of the shoe.
