    The results of my Herring Seconds Loake Hickstead purchase as follows:

    Well, they fit perfectly and have a nice finish. Arrived from Herring So this is my first pair of brown, leather-soled, english shoes.

    As you can see they ARE seconds - not perfect.

    I like the last and the shape of the gussets.

    Looking good with jeans.

    And finally, a closer look at leather quality - pretty good.

    Your Ankle Boots Rock!
    Nothing better than ankle boots for a casual masculine style.

    How do you think they'd go with a suit?

    If you look close at Pic #1, there are itty-bitty scratches on the toe of the left boot. At least, that's all I can imagine the problem being. I actually didn't notice until I got the zoom effect of the picture!

    Those are exactly the same as the brown CT chelseas. I love mine. Good choice. If you're interested in messing with them a bit, I recommend navy blue polish.

    I agree with the others - they look great with a suit.

    P.S. they look to be in better shape than my CT pair were when I got them. And they look better with your jeans than with my straight leg Uniqlos, though I usually wear them with APC NS instead or HL 'bootcut' (slightly wider than the UQs).

    The best part is, those are $25(sale) Gap jeans.
