Boo. Does your love of Marlow Wingtips not extend to Lindricks?
In this application, it does not. The only reason I got the Marlows was because CJ does not offer the Pembroke in shell. Its the exact same shoe otherwise, but without the RL premium.
I know that Murl does not want shell, so there is not point in pushing him to RL to pay out the nose for the Lindricks. CJ boots he must to buy them now because they look so awesome.
Meermin: €400 for shell boots
http://www.shop.carminashoemaker.com/articulo.asp?idarticulo=4582226 (Shell, but really nice.)
Stitchy knows....besides I'm a 10US, but thanks Crimson. If I ever did get shell, they would be the Lindricks.
Which C&J you talking about, Stitch? The Islay I posted or the ones Noodles posted.
I'm pretty much done with Meermin, Monkey. Great value, but I am getting picky lately and they are a little too sloppy for me.
Yeah, they can be very sloppy, but they're the best looking ones out of all them. My Meermin boots have no flaws, and they do hold up very well. I suppose it's just a bit of a gamble.
Of course I know my teammate. Obvi beyond obvi.
Whatever was in your link. CJ dark brown pebble grain. That shit was hot fire. Love so hard. Makes me want a pair.
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
Like El S I'd go for the C & J from your selection ^
I would also agree with Doodals, the Skye is one hell of a boot and will outlast most of us as will this EG Galway (different price point admittedly)
and here's @CTBrummie 's collection
The only fly in the ointment is the exchange rate of course
Meh! Hey, no flies on us, just great boots
I love the Skye too Cleav but I haven't been able to find them anywhere. The shot from Noddles was just from the C&J site. I like that the Islay from Barney's has Dainite sole...might go with those.
These are lovely, but $1k...worth it though
Another AS option:
Thanks, Unbel. I saw those but I'm not crazy about the commando sole or the contrast edge stain. Thanks for the help everyone.
You could order direct, which is why i mentioned the exchange rate.
Those you posted are shell rite? if you going to splash that money you could buy Skye with loads of change or look down on these...
Look a bit different to me, not to mention more versatile. Just a view mate, just an opinion....
You are welcome. Assuming you get what I told you to get.
Yep, Buday are shell, but I think I would make an exception in their case. They are awesome. I will have a pair of Galways one day and hopefully the Alderey as well. Unipair has a great pair of dark brown pebble grain Alderely in my size. I'm doing my best to resist spending that kind of $. Thanks again, Cleav!
Are you set on brogue boots? Otherwise, I'd probably go for Carmina's jumper boots if I were you.
