Both great options, you can't really go wrong. I would say the SoH is a little bit dressier to me maybe due to the last. As you probably know, Grant Stone are like tanks, so SoH is probably more comfortable out of the box.
Yes, I got my first boot from them and they made the casual lace up to perfection. Hence why looking at their derby. I am also really enjoying the E width with the room. CXL is known to be a tank, so they pair well with GS.yea i have one grant stone (grain longwing), it's trying to be Alden, and I would say quite successfully
Pretty resilient leather but will require more maintenance than CXL.
CXL is a very casual leather. it is excellent for casual boots and shoes. It is soft, supple and comfortable to wear. It is very sturdy.I never owned any CXL, but I would imagine long term wear wise, CXL give a very different casual vibe vs. grain which you can still shine up to be slightly dressier?
Yes. it is very good for workboots, casual boots, casual derbies.. It is not meant to be a dressy leather. And i don think it should be used on dress shoes...sounds like perfect for workboot, not for me I guess, maybe I'll try CXL with a derby that I want to beat the crap out of it one day...
I agree...My dark brown Utah is a darker shade. Also, let's not post pictures of other brand's shoes too much
