    My pair arrived safely - they are presently at Leatherfoot getting a mirror shine on the toes, then some Topy outsoles, then on my feet!

    Your opinion, which you are free to implement on your shoes. These are Chelsea boots with thin leather soles that I plan to wear year-round, including the present winter conditions. I'd rather have Topy outsoles on them than break my neck walking on icy sidewalks or up and down wet marble stairs at the train station on slick, soaked leather.

    Did you get them from Lether Soul? Mine were only half off but came with lasted trees. I would have kopped the Chow (my surname!) had they been available in my size

    Some were discounted a little more deeply than others at Leather Soul, but all were a good deal. Which ones did you get?

    I wanted to grab the Chow, but in my size they only had it in burgundy and it would have been a bit redundant for me in that colour. I ended up with the Rourke in black.

    I got the Bodin in burgundy, which is a darker than my EG's. I also got the Thomas in chestnut and the Reuben in tan. I really shouldn't have bought so many but hey, it's not every day you come across a retailer discontinuing a line and offers such a bargain. Plus I couldn't get them anywhere else except MTO cause even GC carries them starting from size 6 and I'm a size 5!

    Wow, size 5 is pretty small. My Chows were discounted by Leather Soul a bit more than yours. I would love to see yours.

    Sad to hear that they're being discontinued but the $1k+ shoe range seems very competitive, especially with the limited number of men who would even consider spending that much.

    Just for clarification, are ACs being discontinued by Cleverley or just no longer being sold at Leather Soul?

    Cross-post from shoe porn: Loafers are a tough fit for me. I don't currently own a pair. I have a high instep, and the complete absence of ANY ability to adjust fit in that area via lacing or strap closure means that if they are too tight in that area, the shoe simply won't work at all, even if the fit everywhere else is just fine. I'd pretty much never order a pair on-line, because the odds of fit failure are just too high. For the same reason, Chelsea boots are a loafer fit taken to a nightmareish level. So naturally, I ordered a pair and hoped like hell they'd fit. :) In this case, I was encouraged by the fit of my Anthony Cleverley Cameron Oxfords. As with my Vass shoes, there seemed to be just a bit more than average instep allowance. They arrived (from the LeatherSoul sale), and I still half-expected the worst. But man, they fit like a dream! Must sacrifice a chicken to the shoe gods. My thanks to my good friends at LeatherFoot here in Toronto, who provided a complimentary shine on these puppies even though they were purchased from a different retailer. The finish had been just a little flat, but that has been improved a good deal, particularly on the toe. Without further babbling, here they are the Anthony Cleverley Rourkes: [​IMG] This may be owner bias talking, but do these boots have great lines, or what? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    So was it ever determined if they're hand welted or GYW, made by EG/CJ/etc? I really dig their last shapes...

    I was told by the LS guys that the AC line is made by EG. They look to be machine goodyear welted.

    I was in my local shop the other day.

    I saw some GJ Cleverleys that had markings inside the shoe similar to Picture 1, suggesting production by C&J:

    I also saw some GJ Cleverleys with internal markings similar to Picture 2, suggesting the possibility of Edward Green:

    Also of note:
    - nail patterns on the heel of both pairs of shoes were identical;
    - both pairs were definitely GJ Cleverley (and not Anthony) as I checked the soles;
    - pricing for the "EG" and "C&J" shoes was the same; and
    - this store stocks normal EG & C&J as well (this point, I'm not sure if relevant).

    The owner of the shop in the past had acknowledged that C&J had made / makes the GJ Cleverley RTW. When I asked him whether the EG-lookalike was made by EG, he said that he didn't know and that Cleverley didn't tell.
