    That navy briefcase is blowing my mind. Fantastic.

    RLP Marlows, Maiden voyage. I'm guessing these were made by Crockett & Jones??

    I really like the design and color of these boots

    http://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/shoes/brown-boot/FW142157.html?start=10&cgid=Shoes

    Naturally their poor construction makes them not worth the money. I was wondering if someone has a recommendation of a similar well constructed boot, preferably (but not necessarily) in cordovan and a dainite sole. That color is just perfect and what I am looking for. Does anyone think I could get something like this mto- where?

    Not referring specifically to the blake construction, but to the overall construction and material of the shoe which is knowingly poor for this brand.

    I wanted to let you guys know that I’m organizing a GMTO C&J Harlech whiskey shell cordovan boot. See this post for more details and this post for pics of @mdubs's whiskey Harlechs from a previous GMTO.

    I’m currently waiting to hear back from C&J on whether there is enough whiskey shell available. In the meantime, please PM me or reply in the C&J MTO thread if you’re interested. We need at least 12 people and currently have 5.

    EDIT: I neglected to mention that the current pounds-dollars conversion rate should make the price of these boots significantly lower than usual. The rate could creep back up though, so I'd like to move quickly on this.

    Carmina model 922 in Cognac Cordovan (MTO). We used to sell similar Cordovan shoes as a staple a couple of years back, now it's only available as single MTO. :( Eat more horse meat! :slayer:

    Leaves,

    I own this exact shoe and it is indeed stunning. After awhile of wearing and caring for them properly this is the patina that they took on:

    IMHO i find this to be one of the best looking shoe styles available. I am craving this style in burgundy. Leatherfoot has them but alas not in my size.
