    Very nice. Apparently it is they who make the Hoggs Rannoch I posted a few days ago.

    No. Alfred Sargent make the Rannoch for Hoggs.

    If you compare the AS veldtschoen boots you will see it has the same mustache detail as the Rannoch, attaching the lower to the upper whereas the Cheaney only had a line of stitching to pay homage to the feature. Oddly, Cheaney do a proper mustache on their veldtschoen shoe.

    I have been wearing my Alfred Sargent veldtschoen boots this afternoon for a walk in the forest.

    Previously AS and C&J, currently Cheaney, but I stand to be corrected. The Cheaney does look very similar.

    Either way a great boot.

    Hi all, I'm looking for a very warm pair of shoes or boots for winter. I'm diabetic and my extremities, especially my toes freeze in the winter, even with good socks. Any suggestions would be very appreciated.

    As I've posted previously, Redwing ice cutters. not the cheapest but will last you for years (as they have done for me). Quality leather outer to keep your feet watertight and a wool lining inner that keeps my toes nice and warm, the only downside is they are a bit on the chunky side, so perhaps not as smart looking as some of the other offerings on show in this thread.

    Socks :as posted above, Smartwool are a very decent option.

    I didn't realise they had changed. Are Cheaney doing the moustache for them?

    Interesting that they do it for another company but not on their own boots.

    Trickers had a range that were fur lined for Scott or Hillary I think. ( some on this thread somewhere).


    If you are hitting the surplus stores, get some aircrew cold weather socks.

    Edit - trickers link added https://www.trickers.com/uk/ottenburger

    They show up in the sample sale most years.

    Plus there was a plain version a bit like the Burford called bishop.

    Cheapness Scott R boots are fur lined. Not cheap though. Come in burgundy or tan. Fancy a pair myself.

    I am currently waiting for a pair of (lightly) customised William Lennon boots to arrive.
    What a lovely company. After ordering them, I managed to find another pair of their boots, NOS, on Ebay, which I bought for a relatively modest sum. Having tried them, I noted that although the sizing was spot on, there was a little less volume over the arch than I prefer, so I rang them, and they nice lady (who toook my oreder in the first place) had seen my boots in manufacture, and she went straight downstairs to add a note to them requesting a little more stretch to be added over the arch when the boots are complete. It is (apparently) a common problem that English feet are higher over the arch than some, and they allow for it relatively regularly.
    The great thing is that I have customised a pair of their quite basic Rufflander boots, by adding a repairable Vibram sole and making them from a different leather to normal. Their fee for such a customisation? £40.
    Bargain,
    I look forward to getting them

    I have a pair of their Tug of War boots without the steel. They certainly are built to last.

    They used to do a field boot in Zug leather but that no longer features on the website. They looked amazing.

    Forgotten her name, but they had a really lovely lady who dealt with queries.

    How long ago did you buy the smartwool socks?
    I got mine 4 years ago and they did not wash well with the cuffs not holding on my legs.

    Prefer darn tough american socks now and are washing well so far.

    I looking at some Lanx boots, but can not find out a lot about them and quality. Any one have some of their boots and general quality? I like their Pike boots as I wanted some Moc Toe but without the RedWing price.

    Thanks guys

    I keep meaning to have a look in the shop on Manchester.

    I like The Hale shoe, I would like a modern black derby for work and donít fancy paying £500 notes on trickers Woodstock.

    The more observant of you may recall my search for a certain pair of alpine style boots:

    https://forum.tz-uk.com/showthread.p...=1#post5223729

    Weeks, possibly months of searching, yielded nothing and neither did the couple of years of absolute inertia that followed. In any case I opted to take a slightly different tack and have ended up with a pair of Diotto Beccaccia.

    https://www.diotto.com/scarponi/beccaccia/



    So far very happy. At one point I came very close to buying a pair of Oliver Sweeney Scarpone but came to the conclusion that they were a) perhaps a triumph of form over function and b) I'd spend more time polishing them than wearing them. These ones will mostly just see dubbin.

    Took a peek at the site and was really taken with the idea of specialist boots for truffle hunting.

    Off topic, but I loved this Storyville.
