    Roden Gray has 20% off coupon code. Check Official affiliate thread. Seems to work on Alden's including some blue suede ptbs and chukkas.

    Hard to tell from that picture, but if I had to guess, I'd say no.

    They look more like Church's old and discontinued Stratton or its replacement called Shannon in sandalwood polished binder leather.

    Herring Shoes have the current Shannon on the 103 last but they are very pricey for a high shine leather shoe.

    http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/produ...d=4&catid=6&oldcolid=158&stype=0&colourid=159

    And here is an eg of an earlier Shannon on the 224 last on ebay:

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Nearly-Ne...7798968?pt=UK_Men_s_Shoes&hash=item2a1bf70138

    I think the discontinued Stratton was also made on the 224 last and was also available in shell.

    Church's have recently reintroduced Stratton in full grain leather and suede but on the 173 last which is their classic last for business shoes, Consul, Diplomat and such like.

    I've heard of sagging your jeans a bit, but this is ridiculous

    It literally looks like a horrid photoshop job of a smaller guy cut off at the legs and replaced with some other dude's torso
