    I am not sure how to reply to this especially after I took the trouble to write a (IMO) thought out response; in return I seem to come across direct insults, vaguely grandiose statements and barely coherent challenges.

    I know you have knowledge because I've seen your previous posts; but you need to do better. So far you've done a lot worse.



    Not sure why you're giving the girly laugh?

    That's what I call a classic 1930's- 1940's SPADE SOLE!

    Just find it ludicrous when you said you can't find where EG is better than C&J bench grade.

    EDIT: [​IMG]is girly? hmmmmm

    I am by no means an expert in shoes, but which part of C&J hand grade (thought to be a value competitor to EG) is not 'objectively' better than C&J bench grade?

    In my experience, sole stitching for C&J bench grade are hit and misses, sometimes stitched close to the edge of the welt. But it could be just my luck.

    I said I have seen the Marlow and the shell Sandringham, and did not see how the latter trumped the former. You generalized it to include all C&J benchgrade and all EG.

    I said it in the spirit of starting a discussion and perhaps learning something new; you took it as a challenge. Give all of those, yes coming from you it seems girly.

    Pics?


    ...and it's all right...



    what's he sayin'?


    Thanks for the feedback, gents. Not only do these look fine but they fit me like a glove right out of the box. The calf is black/brown and generally looks dark brown in most light.

    If you can consistently show me a pair of handgrades that command 350 GBP, I am on them!
