    none. in my book chukkas should not be worn by grown ups. it's a schoolboys attire, imo.

    I am not fond of the Arran as a design, but saying what you said is a bit duh.

    I wasn't expecting it, but I think the oxfords may be my fav from this batch.



    St. James had some small tool marks which have shaved off bits of suede, plus there's some glue or miscellaneous stuff in the rear quarter broguing. Arran has some slight rippling of the leather across the vamp. All in all, fairly minor stuff - but at the same time these are issues which should have probably been noticed IMO.



    Would some suede chukkas by StC change your mind? I have something from Phillip in 2-3 weeks.:nodding:

    probably not. chukkas just don't do it for me... there was a vass floating around some time ago, that wasn't bad.

    looking forward to phillip's delivery. :happy:

    mt - looking forward to seeing your St.C's.

    Also, how is GG going to "fix" those problems? they probably have to make you new shoes from scratch... look forward to hear the resolution of this.

    Those are a beaut Namor. The chestnut goes well with it too. What color suit are you planning to pair that with?
