    Paraboot... I own AE and Peal (C&J?) too, but prefer them.

    Seems like C&J is the alpha dog as far as British shoes go. I was going to try some English shoes on my next purchase but I only want to spend about GBP 180 or <300 USD. I never see C&J in my size at that price point when I check ebay or B&S.

    John Lobb. They fit me perfectly, look great, and provide all day comfort. I used to reserve them for wear on special occasions only until recently when I realized that they look and feel far better than any other shoes I own.


    +1. And I thank SF for having introduced me to the brand.

    Voted Alden and Tricker's, mostly because they have shoes that cater to my annoyingly wide feet.

    Um, someone lied to you. C&J is not the alfa dog.

    I was referring to its popularity amongst SF users.

    Damn, AE's take the lead.

    And they're back to tied!

    This shakes out just as I expected it would. The only mild surprise is Alden's performance. I would have expected them to rank lower, but maybe I'm just projecting my own bias.

    I voted Allen Edmonds. They have always fit great with minimal break-in time and have held up fine for me. I used to always get Cole Haans but learned the folly of my ways a year or so ago and haven't looked back since.

    I've got a couple pair of Alden's and they seem nice enough but I don't think I would ever pay the full retail price for them.

    I tipped it in favour of C&J [​IMG]

    I'm hoping I can add DS Lewis to my go-to at some point this year [​IMG]
