    ^ Peal shoes by Alden? Is that right? Highly skeptical as BB stresses the ^#@$ out of them being made in England. I know AS made some but Loake also sounds incorrect - at least now. Maybe in the past.

    Some of the casual styles are loake price point is usually the indicator as it's on crepe soles mostly

    And jezec I want to answer your questions but you ask so many that can be answered by making the effort to search. C&J peals are bench grade with channeled soles

    You mean the STP Burfords? I owned a pair briefly and was very unimpressed with the quality of them - even the lining leather felt cheap and I wondered if the STP boots and shoes are made specifically for them, designed to be sold at a lower price than 'normal' Tricker's. I handled one of the Oi Polloi scotch grain Stows around the same time and there was a palpable difference in leather quality.

    The scotch grain on the Islays is lovely and supple after a few wears.

    Bit like the Shipton & Heneage C&Js, it goes to show that a cheaper product may actually have been made to a cheaper specification in the first place.

    Yep, STP Burfords. STP have such a regular supply that they must be made for them.
    The Not Stows I have seem equal to regular production models.

    Thanks for the kind words Brummie but I agree that a boot like the Coniston is best worn without a high shine.
    Actually, these are the best looking Conistons I've seen.
    I personally keep the high shine for more townsy boots like the Somerville and the poncified Galways.

    Yeah they are very nice Namor. Still kicking myself for not grabbing those when they were on sale a while back. Haven't seen them online in ~1 year or so. They are basically the Harlech in #8 right?

    Thanks guys solid pair of boots. The burgundy shell has remained dark and doesn't exhibit any "dryness".

    Yeah it looks like harlech but on the rounded 240 last

    The last looks different from the Harlech's 341.

    What jeans are those, Namor?

    Yeah they are different: 240 is slightly more elongated

    Jeans are NN07 dark overdye. Fuxking awesome jeans. The points of contact acquire a high sheen akin to a worn in waxed jacket.

    I don't think so. Most are on the BB-exclusive 240, while the U-Throat austerity wing is on the 341.
