    very nice cleave. cant go wrong with a dressy chelsea

    i think a chelsea is far more attractive than jodphur. i think that just speaks to how diversely a chelsea boot can be styled. lourve it

    Thanks man

    I think they're less versatile in black. I have some lovely RM Williams in brown so thought I'd mix it up when I bought these.

    Some will hate when paired with a blue pinstripe. Who cares!

    Really? i actually prefer them in black! I recently sold a pair lasted on the 348 last in brown in favor for a pair of black rlpl from silvano sassetti. so yeah i love the chelsea in black. besides a professional, business interview black shoe, is there another shoe style that is better matched with black leather?

    Took my golf grain/dainite Lowndes on a rainy business trip to Italy just a few weeks ago and they performed great.

    Your thinking for Parisian winters is commendable.

    Congrats!

    PCK1, or anyone for that matter, know if CJ makes another model in "Golf Grain" leather? I am not a big fan of the dubmonk, but the leather looks the nuts. TIA...

    Last fall/winter season they produced both the Lowndes and the Monkton (single monk on 348 last) in the dark brown golf grain.

    This year it seems they have discontinued the monkton version and only offer the Lowndes.

    Unfortunately, I do not know...at least in the United States of any offerings, unless ofc you MTO.

    I have the same shoes and once got a remark regarding the greasing in the toe-cap, refered to as a defect (inner cap being too short). Now I see yours, looking exactly the same. Any opinions here?

    Has nothing to do with a defect in the shoes. More to do with the way your feet fit into the shoe based on that size, width, and last.

    If your bespoke shoes crease in the toe cap, its a problem. It is not a big deal if your RTW shoes do.

    The tan double-monk BBBF from C&J just came in. They're a little darker/orangish than I had hoped, but still look and feel great!
