Seen those Hadleys cheap somewhere recently but can't remember where, may have been End, but they've sold out if it was. It was i the Bargains thread if you can be bothered to check it but a little while back.

I've got a pair of Grenson brogues and they're aging so nicely, thought the leather was OK when new but after loads of wear and polishing it looks lovely.

Cheers. In no particular hurry for em, so will look around or wait for a code

I wanted a RMFB like the brown one one on Volls.de but given up trying to find one plus 650 euros is alot after postage, tax etc on top.

I like that Belstaff one. The only gripe I had was the front pockets might look too baggy.

Please link me to some 'deece' ones but please no hideous EG ones.

There's a 20% code for End ATM, so would both be a lot less than that Belstaff.

Have considered the Beams one before but wanted like a treated nylon shell or leather.

Does anyone do a straight up brown leather down vest?

Both the Ralph and the Belstaff are better than that Beams - look like a walking snooker table

I like the lining on that but that's about it. Also definitely want no hood or detachable hood

Looks great. Really like chelseas not designed as formal as they generally are.
