    Guys,
    How about a Gianni scotch with all eyelets and ridgeway soles? Like the one in the pics below except with all eyelets. Looks BADASS!!!

    ^^ I could be down with this since I am thinking of replacing my shell Indys with this makeup.

    Do they have a catalog with swatches in it? Maybe we can just ask them for a printed catalog to be mailed?

    Wow, they do Veldtschoen construction and full commando soles? I just saw that on the Snowdon. That is awesome!

    +1. I like the look, but I don't think I would fit a blue boot into my rotation currently.

    I'm a little burned out on shoes and I'm on a boot kick. Doesn't mean I would be out, but I definitely would more like a boot. What about an MTO chukka? Has anyone done really interesting stuff with C&J chukka MTOs?

    As far as a shoe, where would a wholecut fit style wise in a wardrobe? Is it a more or less formal shoe? I've recently seen some wholecuts that look pretty cool. Are you set on a derby?

    I'd be out on a chukka and wholecut.

    Actually, now that I think of it, I think a wholecut would be rather boring for an MTO and also would have too limited appeal to do a group MTO.

    Any reasoning on the chukka? Not a fan? Own any C&J chukkas? I don't have any of their chukkas and I'm looking into getting one. Just curious on what you think of them since you have good taste in shoes and boots.

    The snowdon is an awesome boot. invincible to the weather. think world war I and II. C&J had a similar design for this boot that was used by Sir Ernest Shackleton on the arctic expeditions. Its a beast.

    I still think a boot with some roughout/grain would be very very cool.

    As for chukkas - I have an MTO Tetbury in the making in Navy Scotch Grain with some broguing and a strap with silver buckle. Due in March. Tetbury is an awesome boot and it is their #1 selling boot.

    I am not a fan of chukkas. I had one pair of shell and they just weren't "me".

    This is no doubt a great looking boot but it would depend on the cost for me. I prefer some other boots that are similar to this style

    I own a shell cordovan one that I'm still getting used to and that I don't wear as much. My suede jcrew Alden chukkas though are turning into some of my favorite boots. I'll have to try wearing my shell ones more and see if they are my thing too. I like the sleeker lasts C&J have like the tetbury.
