    Ok this is the battle of the Leather Chelsea Boots. Like some advice.


    RM William Comfortline Yearling Chisel Toe

    http://www.onlinegunshop.co.uk/shopimages/products/extras/Craftsman-Boot-500.jpg

    Pros:

    Iconic Australian Boot
    Preferred darker brown colour
    Price

    Weakness

    Not very slim
    Crinkles like hell across the vamp (that is meant to be a distinctive feature but I dont buy it)


    Crockett Jones Chelsea 5

    http://www.pediwear.co.uk/crockett/products/250.php

    Pros:

    I already have 2x Lowndes (Brown and Black) and Hallams (Brown) - brilliant shoes
    Slimmer

    Cons

    More Expensive
    Lighter brown colour then I prefer (but it is hard to tell on photos)
    Hardly makes a mention on SF
    I have never tried for size a C&J boot. (I am a 10 UK)


    Over to you gentleman.

    which one can be tried on in person? from there, the better fit should be the deceiding factor, imo.
