    They are a classic boot which you should be happy to own for a long time. Good choice!

    I'm not normally a fan of the Chelsea boot because I don't much care for the look of the elastic. But in this case it blends in nicely with the suede and that makes them feel better to me.

    Yeah better then the Chukka boots I think. I have so many oxford shoes in C&J but not a pair of little more casual that I can wear with jeans and not with a suit all the time. So I think this will be the one :)

    Will post pics when I buy them!

    A new acquisition...

    1940's Hand-Welted Captoes by Dack's

    I've heard all the arguments about leather quality, but I simply don't see leather that's xtra thick, xtra tough, but Ultra-Soft anymore. 70 years old, and the leather looks new.

    Something about the combination of the clunkly/robust shoe and that wee little buckle on the lacings is just precious! :lol:

    My CJ collection... built over the last 1.5 years. Didn´t think i ever spend that much money on one shoe, pulling the AMEX the first time unleashed "hell" :)

    I´m not keeping the Brunswick, brand new sub as i bought just to see if i liked it. Nice shoe but to close to my clifford. Next in line is Cranford, Hartland and Lowndes or maybe a double monk from Carmina... :decisions:
