C&J Weymouth after 2 years
They look better as they get older
Cross-listed from WAYWN thread: Montrose Balmoral Boots - handgrade on the 337 last.
(Dog hair on the left toe cap, not a scratch) Love the C&J antique chestnut.
Nice shoes! I love when you can see that the shoes has been used, it´s better if they are a little beat up rather than treated like a Ming vase
I couldn't appreciate the leather on the handgrades until I owned a pair, love the Weymouths,
How big isthe difference between Lonsdale, Connaught and Bedford? Is it worth to buy Lonsdale?
Nice! I have the Avebury and love it. The colour on yours is great
Can't understand why CJ doesn't have the Avebury in their regular catalogue, is it because Ws Foster wants them exclusively?
Therein lies my dilema. I like C&J, but Islay is part of a small country boot collection that they do, whereas Tricker's are probably best known for their rugged boots, Stow being the most iconic. Stow is also cheaper at full retail versus Islay and pops up regulary on the reTricker ebay sale and seconds site.
As I say Islay is handsome but its interesting that you turn to the Tricker's in really foul city weather (am looking for a boot for that purpose, my C&J Snowdon are great for more rugged terrain). Currently have no Tricker's in my collection plus they offer RTW Stows in a wide range of colours, might be time to take the plunge.
it's an abomination. i've never seen a fuglier boot, if i may say.
I think it looks good if the right person is wearing it with the right clothes. I would never wear it my self but i friend of mine make it look really good, don´t know why but i guess that boot fits his personality.
Judging by the almost fully closed lacing, aren't they a bit too big?
