    Fascinating, but not surprising since many perfumes are made with Russian leather as an inspiration and contain or at least used to contain rectified birch tar. I LOVE the smell.

    I love Jodhpurs but my wife does not at all. These are a perfect color for this style of boot.

    [​IMG] a few differences: you have a silver buckle and brown edge trim. My Cottesmore, actually its marked the Quorn (made for US), has a brass colored buckle and black edge trim

    It's the same argument again, to me, the alden PTB's are un sleek, boot like casual shoe that I wear with jeans and chinos (I wear them sometimes with trousers, no suits) and the sole and welt work better w the uppers. The shoe that isshinryu posted are not like that and IMO the super welt looks a little bit much and clash with the sleekness.

    Similar reason why I hate the G&G06 last, such a vulgar toe on a super refined everything else.

    I don't like to argue about shoes because I don't know about history and technical details or vocabulary. I just know what I like and what I dislike even if I can't explain it.

    I actually prefer brass on brown shoes but the buckle color is very minor. Surprised at the upper quality though, they feel more like Handgrade leather (or maybe it's a way for me to rationalize paying Handgrade price for them). These will be fun to wear before the temperature breaks 80 degrees here.

    Almost agree, I sold your winner because despite they are pretty to look at, I did not liked them once I started wearing, too sleek for my taste for a boot and disliked the light chestnut color too.

    really? I think they looks sleeker than they actually appear. Im of the opinion that they are "too stubby" Would have preferred them on the 348

    So, you mean they look sleeker than they actually are? Or, they are sleeker than they actually look? :confused:
