    Sorry, I don't wear watches so didn't notice his watch. He was maybe late twenties, trim-looking guy with brown hair --- just so personable, helpful with advice and suggestions but with just the right amount of deference to customers even though he was so knowledgeable.

    Would you wear Northcote boots under a suit?

    Many would. Personally, I typically wear bals with suits so I would opt for a different boot. Careful with the speed hooks because they can get caught in the stitching and pull on it.

    Actually I wouldn't wear any kind of boot with suits. Only possible exception could be EG's Shannons, which I don't own, but still then I consider it weird looking...

    It's fine to wear a chelsea boot with suits.

    I regularly wear my bal boots with suits... actually, outside of suits, bal boots tend to look a little off (except my shell AS Millers which I can look a little more casual).

    Most boots look like typical dress shoes until your pant rises up, so not sure why you wouldn't unless it was a really chunky style.

    Dear Quadcammermmer,

    All Crockett & Jones shoes have full leather insoles, from heel to toe. These are not leather board.

    You can always contact us directly if you have technical questions.

    All the best

    I wear my Somerville with suits all the time in the fall and winter. They look especially good with flannel IMO.

    They are balmoral boots, so they are more formal than the Northcote. But, as long as you feel comfortable wearing any bluchers with suits, I'm not sure boots would make much difference. I wouldn't wear anything with speedhooks or a commando sole with a suit though.
