    Hi cracked crab: I just realized there is no metal eyelets on the Demi-chasse. Is it normal? Most of my shoes from c&j, Alden, trickers... Etc has metal eyelet either outside of inside of the holes.

    I don't think anything to be concerned about Edmund. there is no real standard when it comes to eyelets in my experience. I've seen outer/inner/none. No reason to think this is a flaw on these jmws but rather a decision by the maker to do it this way for this model.

    Thanks! I just amazing how well made the shoe is... You can feel the layering of the leather, liner and reinforcement...etc. but the out sole is extremely stiff which might last a very long time.

    Couldn't agree more.i am very impressed with the quality of hide, and the construction. It will be a very long time before I wear through these. What's amazing is this shoe's big bother - the hunt derby chasse- is even more substantial with triple sole and hand stitching if you can believe that !
    Don't have a pair ... Maybe because they are 2K + now

    I saw the hunt derby and it is 2k, but the leather and stitch are so beautiful. Also they have a hand made wingtip. The weird thing is they look substantial ,but sleek and elegant at the same time.

    Sorry for the thread hijack, just hoping someone can help out.

    I've recently won an auction for these boots:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Weston-Oxford-Stiefel-Balmoral-Boots-UK-8-/171247455560?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT&nma=true&si=UjtSolW2LPI%252Bqr45AHKnGOUmy9U%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc

    I'm wondering if anyone has any idea as what model/last these are. My google/styleforum searches have not yielded any exact matches so far. I came upon an older styleforum thread about JM Weston fakes but maybe I'm just paranoid...

    Any and all advice is much appreciated.

    ^^ Several locations. The one from which I've bought repeatedly is the one near place de la Madeleine, on boulevard Capucines. Very responsive sales people, particularly Virgile.
