New Chilterns in snuff suede:
may be selling my C&J Northcote UK 10.5e, if anyone is interested please pm, B&s post will be up soon
Any thoughts on C&J roughout suede?
I'm a serious newbie on here but saw this thread and decided to post.
I have a pair of nearly new C & J Boston loafers in quite a rare dark tan colour (almost a burnished look). They are a UK 10 D. Will post some pictures when I can but just wanted to gauge potential interest.
I will accept pretty low offers as I want to get rid of them and will throw in a tin of C & J polish and if you want a pair of shoebags (the bags are from a pair of lobbs but I have misplaced the Crockett ones)
PM me if your interested.
I like them, the Amershams. Good for a rainy day. Was thinking about picking them up at Barneys when they were on sale. Decided to pass, because I already have a similar pair in an oxford.
it's a fantastic material for foul weather and beating around.
I really like the look of the rough out. Saw it in the store in London last fall. Think I would prefer it on a derby to an oxford but in either case it's a great casual look.
Reminds of something a salesmen I know used to say. This guy sold industrial carpet that was bullet proof, but ugly. He would always offer the following guarantee: 'It will never be any uglier than it is the day you install it.'
I do wonder it I also might prefer it on a synthetic sole - seeing as how the upper is great for rough weather.
This is the Arran boot in rough-out that was available in the UK a year or two ago, just given an end-of-winter coat of dubbin. Great boots, and am considering a MTO veldtschoen version to make them even better for crappy weather:
The sole is actually Dainite.
EDIT: I'm wrong. Those are not Amershams. Amershams are oxfords and have a Dainite sole.
Yes, they're Exmoors.
The Exmoor is a blucher. I'm wearing a pair right now.
EDIT: I see that you're talking about the shoe at the top of the page.
Sorry, I should have been clearer. You're absolutely right. I was referring to the pair at the top.
anyone know if this Brooks Brothers peal and co loafer is made by Q&J on the 314 last?
only asking b/c they look a lot like the Boston/Harvard line.
Yes, same style and last as Boston but with reversed strap cut-out.
