    Dude. I don't really want to spend $750. Fall drops are right around the corner and I don't want to blow all my funds. NMWA just got more of my $ too. I'm thinking I might just get those Cambridges from AFPOS....I like giving my money to good AVs.


    Nah, I have enough oxfords. I want those primarily for MC casual wear.

    I dont fucking recall asking what you wanted to spend, my love.

    But, I do love my Cambridge boots. I like those CJs better, and they will dress up better, but I cant say boo to the Cambridge from AFPOS.

    Hard to find...I'm getting them. I haven't found anything else I like as much and don't want to settle.

    I ended up getting a pair of the tetburys in black calf over the Islay when I had the choice. Admittedly, the movie Skyfall did inspire me to buy them :) I do love the versatility of the tetbury though.

    I don't think I'd choose the Islay over the Cambridge. I think I prefer the AS as a rugged boot. Plus, it's cheaper to my knowledge. The grain leather on the AS feels great, and is surprisingly soft.

    The movie Skyfall almost inspired me to start working out and get buffed...

    Besides the pair of boots already mentioned, I hear he was wearing the C&J Alex.

    As I said mate, some pages back, better to go direct.

    Here's the definitive.

    Mark from C&J Colmore Row B'ham UK told me that DC specifically asked for C&J to be his shoe of choice for films. The franchise expected to get all of his shoes free in return for the PR but C&J refused. DC got his way and all shoes purchased just as you and i would.

    What make up/size are you after BTW?

    The Alex is a kick ass wholecut too. The only pair of shoes in the movie I wasn't crazy about was the highbury, which to me just seemed like a shrunken pair of tetburys.

    Even buying through C&J direct by emailing or calling a store you can't find them?

    The next purchase that I will make most likely will be those Alex oxfords on black.
