Thank you very much for your insight! The main reason behind the exclusion of the Boston/Harvard is due to the color availability and the Harvard being unlined.

With these being my first pair of loafers outside of the suede tassels I just want it to check off as many boxes as possible. But, due to my lack of experience, I wasn't sure if the more rounded toe of the Grantham would be appropriate with more casual separates.

Thanks again for your comments!
no problem :)

I was wondering whether to try and get some Coniston in black grain and wanted to ask if any esteemed members of this thread had any experience with said colourway? Mostly, I'm curious to see how it ages in comparison to the heavenly dark grown grain versions....

Greetings. I've been perusing the forum and this awesome thread for a while now. I enjoy C&J and love all of the ideas and insight you guys have!

The Conistons have now joined the boot rotation. My goal is to get as far into the year as possible wearing boots every day. And... somehow... resist... buying... more boots.

Those Ross's look great. Got me thinking about them quite a bit. How are they at the toes compared to the Conistons? They look a little wider at the forefoot.

Not exactly. It’s a calf leather coated in a very thin layer of wax. Looks and acts more like cordovan than calf.
Definitely doesn’t act like shell. It makes for a good low maintenance beater but expect the standard corrected grain pitfalls re:creasing and aging poorly. Edit: example that is something like 10 years old. Mainly worn in slush/salt/crap. It’ll take a beating but definitely doesn’t roll.
