    Looking to buy either the Belgrave chestnut or Arden mahogany, but I'm torn on which would be better for dress down Fridays while still being functional for the dress up.
    Would love recommendations thanks.

    Chestnut will be a more versatile color than mahogany. Neither is really a "dress-down" shoe.

    Crockett and Jones most popular last - the 348. I have five pairs on that last - love it.

    Just got my chestnut Westbourne today. Which polish color should I use? Neutral? I don't think C&J offers a chestnut polish, do they?

    These are the C&J Northcote boots on last 348. I have them in black as well.
    These were purchased from Barnys in NY. A little bit more than UK since my size ia\s a rare 13. You could get them from many UK outlets for around GBP 360. I paid around $625 for these ones last year. The black pair was around $480 from Cristopher Forbes in UK.
    Buying from UK you could save on average of 20% or more.

    I just received 2 pairs of C&J Westbourne (2) in Black and Chestnut. I will post photos tomorrow. I would use Saphir neutral to polish them. Other brands will grey them.

    Really? I had some Allen Edmond neutral polish that I planned to use. Btw, any belt suggestion (besides C&J) of course to go with the chestnut Westbourne? I'm having a hard time finding one.
