    Either boot will work with the aforementioned pants, but I personally like the Langdale the best.

    Undoubtedly YES in my oppinion. Alfred Sargent is a quality manufacturer that I think are very affordable right now. The quality in leather and workmanship is something you can feel and see directly.

    And with lasted trees this is a no brainer.

    I have the Langdale, they are actually produced for Herring by Cheaney not Loake. I am very impressed with them, they are a first class boot and I can heartily recommend them.

    I have a pair of Windermere from Herring which is also produced by Cheaney and these have had a gap in the sole and in the seam of the heel, on the inside of the shoe is loose.

    I have too limited experience to directly provide any recommendations, but based on the pair of shoes that I have, I can see a distinct differences in leather and manufacturing quality between Cheaney and Sargent, Carmina and C&J, which I think has better products.

    That's right, my mistake about cheaney/Loake. As it is, I've made up my mind in favor of the Cobbler Union model. I'll give a full report.
