I think they have them in Black this year. I am passing since I like the vintage brown.
I love the Brecon as well. To me, they are totally different boots and each has its own function and character. Brecon is timeless.
By the way, I think there are 2 Lindrick boots on eBay this week. I think sizes 9 and 10.
They offered as C&J.
It's been a while since Northcote (1st on left) has been posted in this thread and its a boot I nearly always overlook when considering a C&J boot.
C&J say the uppers are made with Wax Calf. Is this a corrected grain/binder leather that won't take on a patina over time? BTW Lovely boot collection S_S.
BTW C&J Hallam, an oxford toe cap shoe also comes in waxed calf so owners of that shoe might also have an view on whether the leather is able to take on a patina.
sartorial, how did you size the 348? its a funky last imo
Anyone size 13D needs to jump on these!:
That's why I wear Brecons this bloody rainy day.
BTW Love your collection! You have both Tetbury and Brecon, interesting that I've tried Tetbury, Chiltern and Millbank, and felt uncomfortable in the heel, whilst Brecon/Chepstow don't have this problem.
It is my favoraite C&J last. Fits my foot well in Boots. I am not sure about shoes, probably have to go one size larger to accomadate my high instep.
Thank you. Like I said before, they are very different boots, but they both have their own function. I wear the Tetbury more formally, with suits on the road.
It was Gone fast.
Thank you. Northcote leather is as close to cordovan as you can get without buying cordovan. It is very hard to shine, though. However, it is very dressy and elegant boot. My favarite of the lot.
Yes, it would. Thanks.
