    Lets just say that it takes some practice, and takes longer than laced boots to put on.

    I can imagine. Isn't there a special tool/hook to help you put them on?

    What are the two boots on the right? They look like shell but it could be the polish. Great shot.

    I took a look at the Skoak site to see the Alderley--man, not only are they smart enough for dress pants, you'd also be looking like a boss.

    No problem. We are all a team here.

    Yes the Alderley is a great boot. I posted a few pictures too, if you want to see more than just the skoak site's pictures.

    Leaves I know in an older thread it was said that EG was not producing the "Herrick" anymore is this still the case?

    Talk about a really cool looking boot. I have never seen anything else like the Herrick, except for a bespoke pair that probably was based of of that style from EG.

    I'd love to order a MTO austerity brogue shoe/boot but I have no idea where to start WRT to sizing/lasts, etc. This is also a very nice shoe:
    Can someone provide me with details on this shoe?

    Some more ideas for Enzo Bonafe MTO I am throwing around... I think suede enzo might be best value.
