    Bowerys are definitely Cheaney. I had a pair of seconds with Cheaney insoles

    Yeah my mistake.. you guys are right its Chenaey.. I got my Ch's mixed up...was a long day at work cut me some slack..

    and yes RRL does MTO, call RRL in Melrose or NY and they should be able to help out

    Aren't Church's owned by Cheaney anyway, or vice-versa? So possible the similarities aren't coincidence...

    EDIT: Also here's a pair on eBay that I noticed a while back ago: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Joseph-Chean...hoes&hash=item51a438d9a7&_uhb=1#ht_2217wt_885

    After seeing that I asked the SA in Melrose and they confirmed they do MTO

    Thanks for the info! Cheaney is owned by Church, which is owned by Prada. Wonder how much a pair of MTO RRL boots costs--probably gets close to EG RTW prices.

    Not quite. If I am correct it when a little like this ....

    The Church's (the family) sold Church's (the shoe company) to Prada.

    After a period of time, there was some boardroom drama - then the Church's (the family) left Church's (the shoe company)

    The Church's (the family) then bought Cheaney's.

    Didn't mean to make it sound like I was attacking you for stating the LWBs were made by Church's.
    I was taking a sick day from work so I had time to indulge my curiosity as to who may have made them.

    That ebay seller you linked to is the one who seems to always have the Cheaney seconds including the RRL Bowery boots.

    That seller is great. I bought a RRL Harris Tweed sports jacket from them a while back. It was an amazing price (I offered considerably less than the asking price) and the international shipping cost was low. I always check the store as they often have some very nice stuff.

    Hmm, I may try to send him a decent offer then, but not a huge fan of longwings, although I can't help but think olive officer pants will look nice with the black longwings...


    No worries, but I guess my answer wasn't half-bad considering...

    Funny. I saw this exact picture an hour ago and thought. LOL that's right from the RRL thread on SF - even though about posting it too.

    I assume they are from the Rihanna for River Island Collection.

    It bothers me that you can name a Rihanna collection as if it were from memory...

    LOL i read the article. she was appearing at the launch. I did find it funny that she seems to have done this terrible look.

    More embarrassing is that the article was in the daily mail, which I like to read to help maintain my misanthropy.

    I recalled I saw the "double-pants" and some headline, and clicked on the link as it piqued my interest. I recalled incorrectly.

    Seems there is some hypocrisy involved on my part (I am fine with that).
