I check out the other forum a lot and have become a fan of a lot of the boots being posted on the Alden thread and Viberg thread.

So I'd like to see you gents post pics of your boots. They can be work boots or dress boots. Post 'em if ya got 'em

Well, I have a pair of casual boots and a pair of work boots that would probably not be well received on this forum.

As for boots that I would like to have, this boot is rather lovely, although, I may prefer it in a darker color. I saw this boot on the "other forum" but have not seen it for sale anywhere.

This is very similar to the C&J tetbury, except for the medallion. Here's the tetbury in black ($615 retail !) http://www.barneys.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-BNY-Site/default/Product-Show?pid=501262460&cgid=mens-shoes&index=1

Cool thread - those C&J's are stunning. A few of my faves:

There's no picture with this (but there will be when I figure out how to upload stuff from my Brownie), just a brief story:

A couple years back a black van with DC plates (I'm in Maine) pulls up to a church which a family member is involved in the running of and drops off a couple of cartons of stuff for the charity room. The family member rummages thru the carton, finds something unusual that he thinks Peak would really like. And do I ever. It's a pair of boots, my size. They're Gokeys, an unknown name to me, but probably not to you if you're posting here. No markings inside, but in the same carton were a pair of Footjoy golfer's, same size, WITH markers inside; a sticker that reads something like: Bush Locker #7 Such-and-Such Club, Houston" The van, a secret service job, came from Walkers Point, Kennebunkport, a town south of me by about 90 miles.

I have good news, bad news, and worse news.

The worst are the boots brought prior to AAAC which will not be shown here. Suffice it to say I need to replace 2 Chukkas, and 2 Chelseas. The search has already begun, but my pending shoe acquisitions means they may have to wait another year.

The bad news is that I purchased 4 J&M aristocrats,which at least are full grain or suede, look good and are well made for J&M.

The good news is, I can learn. Re: the Carminas, and my AE Shaker Heights which are still in the office boxed awaiting the Fall so not pictured here.

Here's the gang sans the CG I won't show, and the AE which are at the office.
