    Barneys is $950 not worth it for any level of C&J quality

    Yep, at that price I'm thinking other brands rather than C&J.

    That is the conventional wisdom, and, even if true, I"ll take my peal version and $500 in my wallet. :D

    Anybody own the Islay boot? I saw it on my recent trip and was really impressed. One of the finest country boots I've seen.

    Quote:I snagged a pair around March of this year. I love them, but I haven't worn them much in the late spring and into the summer. During those last couple of weeks in winter, I generally just wore them with flannel pants and odd jackets. I'm looking forward to fall to bring them back out. I fully plan on wearing them when it snows too.

    That would be my idea too. You get them in that dark brown scotch grain?

    Quote:Yes, they are in the dark brown scotch gain. Just be aware that the speed hooks will shred your pant hem stitching. The first day I wore them, one of the hooks caught on the stitching and undid the hem. It wasn't a big deal, as the tailor fixed it. I still haven't come up with the perfect solution to this, but so far, taping over the hem stitching on the inside seems to be working. I use that fabric tape that women use to tape clothes to their body to keep things in place.
