Just snatched these from Tassels here in Hong Kong (Lanark 3). They're on 40% discount so I couldn't resist, and we need some casual black shoes for our upcoming denim photo shoot.

Any thoughts on the Vibram sole? I'm surprised how light they feel.

What do you guys think about Coniston boots with ‘scotch country grain leather’?

I’m not quite familiar with this leather in Conistons boots, could anyone give me some advice? (Maybe vs. Skye or Northcote?)

It's the standard leather that most people get their Conistons in. Several of us have the tan scotch grain. Here are mine.

Are these shell Cordovan?
No, they're not. It's their Black Cavalry Calf, Another user suspected it being a cheaper leather back in the Fall. (I don't remember the exact term right now.)

I have that same pair of Lanark 3s that I wear with more contemporary SW&D fits. It holds up well in the rain!

I would highly recommend it, colour is great and gets better with a bit of darker polish added over time in my opinion.

Mine have minimal creasing which could partially be down to fit. Also seems a fairly durable leather.

Monday polish :)



Are the top pair chestnut? I really hope my chestnut Connaught's end up looking something like that.

What products do you use and roughly how long has it taken to acheive this look if you don't mind me asking?

I'm aware its better to let the patina develop gradually over time,

By any chance do you know if tassels had any shell Cordovan shoes in their store? Not including Alden.
