    That's looks to be a Le Chameau boot (leather lined). This poll might also be leaving out Aigle boots.

    In my opinion, there is no way any person wearing a suit can wear the LL Bean or Sorel boot (perhaps to work on a rainy day) without looking terrible.

    Aigle Boots (for those afraid of their masculinity being questioned if they wear Hunter):

    Tough to beat the Bean Boots, IMO.

    Le Chameau - no comparison.

    The leather lining in the Chasseur boot is nice to have, but $400 is quite a lot for something you won't wear often and is made to get dirty.

    Where can you get leather lined Le Chameau's for $400?

    A bit better than yesterday, all day vomiting for
    The Bean boot is a lot lighter in weight than the Sorel.

    Bean 10" for the muck and Tingleys for the lighter days.
    Sorel is good for arctic-type snow but I prefer Bean for pretty much all else.
