    The C&J's are goodyear, Sutor Mentallassi brogue is a blake welt, and the final Sutor is a goodyear I think. Which on would you pick? Blake welt is cheaper. Should I buy goodyear over blake?

    The construction on both makers is excellent. Buy the one(s) that you like best and with the best fit. comfort rules.

    I'm more familiar with the quality of CJ and they get significantly more positive exposure on this forum than Sutor so I'd go by the law of averages and recommend CJ.

    Personally I simply prefer the style of the Clifford over the sutors, I like the heavier English broguing

    CJ gets more positive exposure, because more folks here wear them. They also get more positive exposure than Lobbs, again it's because more people wear then. CJ are good shoes, but Lobbs and the top lines of Sutors are very good shoes.

    The third with ghillie lacing. It's distinctive without being OTT.
    I would prefer a rounder toe, but of the three this is the clear
    winner.
