    They look amazing. I first thought they were burgundy shell Marlows.

    Beautiful boots, indeed. I like the light color of the welt. Is that the standard welt? Looks quite a bit darker at Linnegatan2, for example.

    Must be, I didn’t get anything special done to them.

    Enjoying fall season in London with my beloved CJ Galway II.

    P.s. This is a cross-post from the "Boots Boots Boots" thread, I apologize if you already saw the picture.

    Well I finally stumbled into a pair of C&J. The Grasmere on the 325 last in G width. I am pretty impressed with the quality control and construction. The dainite sole is taking some getting used to as it is new for me. Not sure if this is the regular feel of dainite or simply breaking the shoe in and it will get more comfortable later. Either way, its a really nice shoe. I would like to hear any other recommendations for shoes on the 325 last and available in G width.

    Pembroke!

    And since you’re a LWB guy, If you can find a Cheviot, that would also be up your alley.

    I would be more tempted if it were a long wing and if it came with a leather sole. It will take some time for me to get used to the feel of the dainite sole.

    Love the Galways!

    Sorry if I leverage your post to discuss something that is bothering me. Am I the only one that lace my CJ boots behind the heel to avoid the laces to "ruin" the look? CJ boots come with incredibly long laces and I can't really have them pending around the boots. A possible alternative is to turn the laces around the ankle and tie them on the front.

    Any thoughts? Maybe I am missing something here.
