    I've been reading threads about both the shoes sold by Charles Tyrwhitt and those currently available in Lands' End's overstock section and can't decide between the two. Using the 50% off coupon at CT, they're both about the same price.

    Given the extremely mixed feedback I've read regarding shoe purchases from CT, I'm kind of terrified to order them there (in spite of the fact that I prefer the way the shoes look in the images available on the web site-- not that this says anything about their quality, obviously!). But, at 22 years old, I don't do much shopping at Lands' End and feel kind of unsure about ordering them there, too.

    I suppose I'm leaning toward going with Lands' End, but would appreciate any opinions, experiences, or advice (or photos! Especially photos) anyone is willing to share. Thanks!

    Alfred Sargent (who makes LE's) seems to be about better in quality than Loake (who makes CT's) at least that's how I understand.

    Unless you are a size 13 it will be an easy decison because that is the only size Land's End has left.

    Unbelievable! They actually only have size 13 left in the chukkas. There were several sizes of chelseas left earlier today, including 11, which I wear, but not anymore. I guess that's what I get for waiting around. This is the second time this has happened to me in the past week! [​IMG] Thanks to everyone who posted. I'd still be interested in seeing photos of either shoe if anyone has any...
