    It's an odd makeup. I was skeptical when I first saw it but have since fell in love with it. I particularly enjoy the fine (small perforations) broguing, medallion-less wingtip, open lacing, brogued heel counters and slim, comfortable last. This was my first pair of handgrades.

    Color is cavalry brown and has since been polished with red/burgundy Saphir.

    As an aside, Belgraves are scheduled to arrive today :slayer:

    Opted to go with Belgrave instead of Westbourne. Still wondering if I made the right choice

    It's pretty much exactly like my favorite C&J - the Drummond - except in derby format. I, like you, am particularly fond of the small scale of the perfs. Interesting about the color, I'm not familiar with all of C&J's colors/names.

    Looking forward to seeing your Belgraves.

    My AS MTOs arrived today. Pics will be coming in the Shoe Porn thread by tomorrow.

    Awesome. That was the 2 lace derby?

    Big fan of the Drummond as well. However, it's your shell Ginsburg that has me envious.:drool:

    Yes - Justice Ginsburg has been tanned and her hide is now in use on my shoes. Poor old thing.

    And yes - it's a 2 eyelet derby. The model is called Pimlico.

    The all C&J week continues. I covet these boots.

    Will I burn in hell for it, or simply suffer in purgatory?

    purgatory isn't forever, that's it's whole point. but I'll not get too deep into the mysteries of 'The Church'. it's too much for a shoooo threak.
