I've had both and prefer the Clarks. The shape of the Jcrews looked too long (laces set too far back) and my Clarks have worn really well. Absolutely ruined them wearing them in clubs and they always clean up almost like new

I've got a pair of Loake desert boots and love them:
Really soft suede that wears beautifully.
Got some Clarks too (wearing them atm) but prefer the Loakes.

I would suggest you take a trip to Browns to try them on mate, that's what I did (Amin's advise) and it paid off.

Good advice, thanks. Was considering ordering from abroad so will try browns first.

Cheers people. Will have a look for some Loakes. Was going to pick up some Clarks anyway, but missed out on a code (no pikey).

I am usually a UK7 in dress shoes, went UK6.5 for my Grenson Stanley. (I initially bought and returned the UK7 that were too wide)

Think you need a UK7 spitfire.
