    Hi! I'm Diego and this is my first post.
    One year ago I bought one pair of CJ Pembroke in tan scotch grain, UK 11. 10,5 was too tight( I'm usually wear 10,5 in CJ Hallam, CJ Norwich, Church´s Consul,Church´s Chetwynd brogue, Cheaney Arthur III, CJ Tetbury, Carmina oxford cordovan 762 forest,)
    I live in Birmingham, rainy place but the way.
    This shoes are really comfy,the Danite sole is fantastic in every weather, Usually walk all day long because my profession, some times wear suits same time trousers and blazers but always shirt and tie.
    Then I put on test this shoes.
    Quality: 10/10
    Confort: 10/10
    Weather response: 10/10
    Sole: Danite.Highly recommends use this sole
    Style: 7/10 for some people could be bulky shoes, but keep in mind is a country style. It's ok for trousers, but not for suits ( it's my view), for tweed or blazers are excellent.
    Care: easy to care compare with others shoes, and the leather is really good. ( Care advice: Saphir renovateur, Saphir cream and wax, shoe trees).
    I confess, initially bought this shoes with zero enthusiasm, and after long talk with the salesman of CJ store, but now I'm happy with this shoes and still looks great.I recommend strongly buy it,of course, if you need a really good pair of country brogues for any occasion.

    They look darker than the tan/burnt orange looking stock photos. Did you apply dark shoe polish to it?

    Your shoes look great. I'm curious why you bought them without any enthusiasm though. C&J are not exactly a cheap gamble for a shoe that you don't absolutely love.

    Hi! I bought this shoes when I moved to Birminghan and realize about the weather. At that time I had a couple of pairs of CJ and just pop up looking for strong shoes, then show me this pembroke and take my chances. (I love CJ, when realize there was a shop in Birminghan was impossible to resist the temptation)
    At the beginning looks bulky to me, but with the time that conception has change.
    Kind Regards
    Diego
