    V. Nice!
    (Ahh, and ust now I decided to order my shannons in dark oak. Now I'm in doubt again.)

    Why do you lace them 'U.S. style' btw?

    I'm not aware of a "U.S" style. I always lace derby boots this way....

    IMO a derby boot is very casual so this lacing suits it. Personal preference :)

    Dark Oak much more versatile.

    I went to try on some C&J's once (shoes, not boots), and the sales associate said "I'm going to lace these up English style for you". He proceeded to do bar lacing on the shoes, so I guess the way you have your boots laced would be considered US style? FWIW I always lace casual boots the same way, looks great.

    Like you said, a matter of preference.

    :cheers:

    In fact, thinking about it, all of my derbys are laced in this fashion (apart from a pair of sleek wingtips from Antonio Meccariello)

    A beloved, old, chunky wool sweater I got in France when I was a college student. The sweater is as old as Zadok, the Priest, but it is still like new.

    Thrifted the trench, thinking about slimming it down a notch, and shortening it.
