    $2400 for TD.....that is rich. They better be willing to make a cordovan galway at that price.

    I think only the simply wholecut is in the price range perhaps a cordovan boot but general st.c prices are around 1600-1800$.

    I know, I haven't purchased that many but I did buy two of them. One was a Cordovan and Russian calf boot and the other was a double monk. I'm just saying if I were to spend that much St Crispin's is were I'd be looking first at this point in time.

    I think they are two different aesthetics but I agree at that price point I could more easily justify the premium. One of the reasons I prize EG of JL is the cost along with MTO options.

    Agreed, they are a totally different aesthetics. Maybe there might be advantages for going EG top drawer which are worthwhile but I haven't found one yet. I've only purchased one shoe from JL and I have yet to really want for another at this point. So at this point in time for that price mentioned I would much rather get something from St Crispins.

    I'd be in for Wigmore on TG73. How about vintage burgundy, burgundy highland grain shaft and dainite soles?

    Or perhaps a Rioja hatch grain shaft?
