Just picked up a brand new pair of these Charles Tyrwhitt (made by Loake) boots for £50:
My Grenson's need resoling so consequently have been wearing my Loake Kempton chukka's a lot. These should take the strain off those boots while I get the Grenson's sorted.
These look awesome. Got a link?

I got them NOS from eBay from a guy that seems to periodically have a load of CT NOS stuff in my size (6). I got some black chelsea boots from him a few months back too. I actually had my eye on a pair in more of an oxblood colour, but they were £180 (which I could not justify right now) and these were £50 so I snapped them up.
Becks has style, but his hats will never be as nice as Fellaini's....
Anyhow, back on topic... I got a nice pair of H by Hudson chelseas delivered today. I've a black tie wedding over the Christmas, so I'm probably going to wear them with the tux. Have to try them on with the trousers when I get them back from the tailor - I'm having them altered to a skinny fit so they'll go better with the boots. I'm trying to avoid the penguin suit look by aiming for a more 60's rock band look.

The boots are a nice fit - very soft leather, so they fit really snug without crushing the toes. Never bought Hudson before - so far I'm impressed.
These just arrived for me, taking advantage of free next day delivery at Uniqlo. Both reduced to £39, the first one is 70% and soocnd one 80% wool:
I think the second might go back, because I don't like the feel of the material, almost knitted. The first one fits well and feel nice. Won't fit a blazer under it though. But not bad for £40.
Just picked up some slim fit selvedge raw denim jeans from GAP, they've got 30% off all denim at the moment.
Also bought a standard crew neck tee in grey from there for £9. A small attempt at adding in some more basics and building a capsule wardrobe along with a slight smart ening up of my looks.
Here are the jeans I bought, still undecided about them. They are quite tight in the thigh, gf likes them but they are a much more fitted jean than I would usually wear I'm guessing is the difference. I usually wear my jeans slightly loose but skinny/slim fit. Here are some pics:
Jeans on their own:
Jeans with Converse:
Jeans with desert boots: (really can't get into jeans and desert boots, just seems so dull and plain to me. I feel these boots are too narrow and maybe the colour is throwing me off)
Full length of jeans:
Can I get some opinions on these? Cheers
Fit looks spot on mate. Nuff said.
Look ideal to me. As long as they're comfortable, go with them.
