    I've been eyeing off these Lamonts on ebay. Seller thinks they may be shell, but isn't sure. Anyone able to identify, or hazard a guess to what leather they are?

    They don't look like shell since the micro creasing is evident on the left shoe but a nice shoe, nonetheless. A solid deal is you're looking for an all around blucher.

    This makes me want to buy them all. I'll be heading to London next week, so I will pop in to the C&J store for a closer look.

    Gentlemen,

    Got a question about the stock dark brown shell Harlechs. Are the hooks and the eyelets aligned in a row? On my Alden boots the hooks are a little further out than the eyelets, but looking at the Harlechs on the C&J website it seems like the eyelets and the hooks are aligned. Anyone who can confirm this?

    I'm thinking about ordering a pair of dark brown Harlechs but want all eyelets and was thinking about letting my cobbler remove the hooks and replace them with blind eyelets, if possible. Would prefer if the eyelets were aligned after such an operation.

    The spacing for eyelets vs hooks is different on my whiskey Harlechs. It's that way for petty much all boots with hooks.

    My new pair of Snowdon boots. If you fine people would be so kind, please advise on what would be the best product or products for protecting these from the rain. The lady at the store recommended Dasco Waxed and Oiled Leathers, but nothing else. Doesn’t seem right. Thanks.

    Thanks, zippyh, good to know and that's what I thought, it just looked like the hooks and the eyelets were more or less (OK, maybe less) aligned here: https://www.crockettandjones.com/harlech-darkbrown-cordovan/
