Early 200os Polo RL Bentons by C&J
I have a few pairs of these that sold for around the USD500s MSRP from memory. They are supposed to be bench grade but seemed to be upspec'd to near hand grade with close channelled soles and fine leather. They are even a copy of a hand grade model - the Belgrave.
C&J Eaton in snuff suede - just got these today.
I remember Rebel posting a few years ago that he had determined (I believe, after speaking with C&J) that the RL Bentons are rebadged Belgraves. That is, that they are handgrade.
Thanks for that because they sure polish up like hand grades!
I have a pair of dub monks I paid a small fortune for in the same British tan colour and they are like handgrades as well.
I bought another pair of dub monks in a different size and I have had them recoloured to midbrown and the yellowish tan has bled through the brown dye nicely to give an antiqued red brown Italian look like Meccariellos etc.
Islays, then and now.

Now, warm off my feet:
Ultimate boots. I want to grab a pair eventually.
Very nice. Those Blue Laces look pretty good. Where did you get them from?
I got them from here, a treasure trove of all sorts of laces up in sunny Northumberland...

Thank you CTB - this find will make my collection of black calf alot more fascinating in the office.
Thank you sir.
Oh, you'll have some fun with some of the combos now available - I picked up several pairs of different length so both my boots and chukkas can be livened up a little as the fancy takes me...
